Post Saturn Sucks

Ran into an older gentleman at the local dealer mall. He was reading his newspaper sitting in a very inconspicuous Cavalier on the side of the road. The only thing noticeable was that the signage on the Cavalier said ďSATURN SUCKSĒ and was parked right in front of the Saturn dealership.

Now that Saturn might be shut off as a complete brand as a result of the latest policy changes over at GM, this might not be such a bad thing after all. The Saturn dealer did not seem that impressed, but luckily they had almost no traffic to be affected anyways. With the recent downturn in Saturn sales, itís a small wonder the dealership was even open on that particular Saturday.

The gentleman was parked right beside the dealership, with a vehicle that stood out like a sore thumb. It was evident that there has been a great deal of displeasure that has been endured on his part.

Digging more into the story it seems the gentleman ordered a 2000 Saturn brand new and had troubles since the very beginning. From the day it was picked up the vehicle has experienced troubles that were not remedied by the dealer. This has caused the gentleman to go through arbitration as the vehicle had under 1000 miles. With promises of the vehicle being fixed arbitration has been concluded. The vehicle kept having problems and more and more problems developed. Although weíre not sure how the vehicle ended itís life, itís safe to say itís existence has seen a bumpy road.

It seems this man holds a grudge, as 9 years later, he still finds himself decaled out in front of the Saturn dealer, but now sporting a much improved Chevy Cavalier. I hope the Chevy dealer has enough sense to cover the Cavalier bumper to bumper, or else heíll find a very much unwanted visitor on his driveway every Saturday for years to come.

Saturns are actually decently reliable cars! Based on the fact that this guy's was a 2000 I am going to guess it was an s-series. I owned a 95 sc2 and beat the hell out of it, and it still started everyday and did its job (after I fixed it). When I bought it it had 125000 miles. I bought it from a shady dealer and it had some issues due to neglect by the previous owner when I got it. Once I fixed it, I put 30,000 miles on in the matter of a year and some change. It was a 5-speed and I redlined it a lot. Shortshifter, cold air intake, eibach springs, etc... The car was good to me up until the end when I traded it. But I will say this about saturns with the 1.9 liter engines and high mileage- they burn oil! I had to add about a quart every 2-3 weeks. Its just what they do... But other than that, my car was pretty decent.
