In November 2001 I purchased my used 99' Saturn SC2 with standard transmission which at the time had only 23k miles on it. Now my faithful car has 130k miles on it and is running excellent! I had it in the shop for basic maintenance such as brakes, exhaust, oil change, etc.. I still have the original clutch. Most cars do have their minor problems. For mine, the sunroof seized up. I read on the internet that this is a common problem with Saturn's of that year. Another issue is that the ABS no longer works. With the high miles on it, I decided not to fix these small issues. Mechanically however, my car has been good to me and has never broken down (knock on wood). On an additional note, someone pulled out in front of me and scuffed my front fender pretty good.

Because of the resilient plastic fenders, the body shop was able to buff all all evidence of the scratches out for only $25. You gotta love those plastic surface pieces.

An honest shop gave me the bad news that the main computer brain needs to be replaced, and only Saturn dealerships are allowed to make this repair. I took it back to the dealership and told them that, but instead they changed the oil and told me that it was fixed. They even charged me an $85.00 "diagnostic fee" for changing the oil. Needless to say, it is still not fixed, and I can't even get a return phone call.
I have a complaint in with Angie's List and with the BBB, and still no attempt to resolve this issue.
Don't buy a Saturn, and if you've already been sucked in like me, DON'T take it to Saturn of Fishers for service!!

SAN JOSE, GEORGIA -- It all started with a smog check requirement. Unfortunately, my engine service light was on and must be off for the smog check. I took the car to Saturn of Stevens Creek. They diagnosed it as a burnt out "fuel low" warning lightbulb. I could not believe a light bulb was tied to my service light which is tied to my smog check. The labor to replace a light bulb that is similar to a Christmas tree light bulb would have purchased 4 new tires! Thanks a lot Saturn engineers. I think there were some gulf coarse discussions between my Senators and some GM execs when the smog rules were written. I don't think this is the best way to win repeat customers.5 Replies - Latest reply on 07/16/2006Add reply

DUNDEE, ILLINOIS -- I just wanted to say I have purchased 3 automobiles from Saturn of Dundee, in Dundee Illinois and they have been wonderful with me all 3 times. I had some bad experiences with traditional dealerships including a Used car manager who took my keys and woundn't give them back until I threatened him! But Saturn has been such a blessing not to have to haggle! I will never buy a car from a traditional dealership again, because I just don't wanted to be treated that way. Thank you Saturn.Add reply
