A true piece of garbage, a marvel of Russian engineering I guess
Saturn's are very poorly made cars. All I would like to say is do yourself a favor and do not go near a Saturn, don't even drive-by a Saturn dealership. I bought this car for being different, it is different alright! I should have flushed the money down the drain myself. The heap of plastic which it is starts rattling at less than 25,000 miles, the dash board, the door, door panels, body panels etc. I have changed brakes on this car almost every 3 months, with every oil change! I am on my second transmission, which is also about to go. I always maintain my car according to the manufacturers manual, and never install non-manufacturer parts. I have had a 81 Celica, 92 Ford Tempo, 93 Civic, 96 Accord, 93 Accord, 94 BMW 3 Series, 95 Town Car, and never had transmission problems, never had oil burning/brake/engine/battery/02 sensor/thermostat/cassette player issues. This environmental friendly, different kind of car by a different kind of company has given me nothing but headaches and pocket aches! I have decided NEVER to buy another Saturn, for that matter never to buy another GM car at all.
Do yourself and your kids a favor, tell people to stay away from Saturn's. This car is nothing, but trouble for yourself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
