Saturn Complaint - Plastic Bumpers / Front windshield
WHITE BEAR LAKE, MINNESOTA -- I own a 2001 Saturn Sl I bought it with 9 miles on it. Durning the 3 years owning that car I had to replace the Bumpers 3 times and the front windshield 2 times in one year. The first time the windsheild cracked it had not been hit. The weather temp had changed and the windshield crack due to change in weather. The 2nd time a small rock in it and made a ding in the glass by the time I got home there was a crack across the wind shield. All 3 times I had to replace the bumper it was in winter. Each time was driving under 3 miles an hour in a parking lot slid in to snow bank and the bumper crack.
I have owned many older used cars before with metal bumpers I have ever had to replace a metal bumper even after a minor crashs. Also on older used cars I have not had to replace a windsheild even through little rocks had hit the windshield before.
I feel the make windshields with cheap glass.
Plastic bumper should not be used on cars soled in cold weather states.
