#989 of 1419 pbagrat--question about your Saturn
Sep 16, 2002 (8:38 am)
I have had similar experiences. Numerous things have gone wrong with my Saturn, the most recent being the transmission. My car is a 1996 with 65K on it and the transmission did not give any warning signs, it just broke. I do not want to pay the $2500 to fix the car as I am tired of pouring money into it. I was wondering if you completely fixed the car before selling it or found some wonderful person to take it with mechanical problems...Thanks.

As Saturn retailers are independently owned and operated, there is some difference in service quality from what I have heard.. As a whole however, Saturn retailers are known to be a cut above your traditional haggle prone Toyota or Nissan dealer.
As I mentioned, I drove the 2003 Accord last Saturday, and I was very impressed. For the price/features ratio, it runs rings around the 2003 L Series. I posted a bit more info regarding my test drive of the Accord in the "2003 Accord Redesign" room if your're interested. Im sure you'll like it.
#993 of 1419 Reprogramming the Keyless Remote

Can anyone tell me how to reprogram the keyless remote on a 1997 Saturn SW2 so that the horn WILL NOT honk when I press the Lock or Unlock buttons on it?

Prolly a good idea to contact your Saturn retailer, or call 1800-553-6000 for customer assistance
#995 of 1419 1998 SL1 Motor Mounts
Sep 24, 2002 (9:54 am)
Has anyone else been having trouble with motor mounts? I have 63k miles on my Saturn and for the second time I have a collapsed right-side motor mount. I was told by the dealer that this is a common problem but I never had this problem on my 1994 Saturn.

We had to have our motor mount replaced also, along with the water pump on our 1997 SW2 about 6 months ago. That was $400+ that I wasn't too happy to pay on a car that we bought new 6 years ago and currenty only have 42,500 miles on it!!!!

early and mid 90's repairs. I did both on my 94' SL2.
And more things. I got rid of it this past summer at 120,000 miles. I couldn'take the low seat and powerseatbelts any more.
The new ION looks good for it's size and powertrain.

I saw pics of the new Ion and the styling is great, and I really like the concept of the quad coupe, but the center mounted instrument cluster is awful. That alone will prevent me from buying one. Maybe its the next generation thing and more cars will adopt the idea from Mini Cooper but ergonomicaly it would anoy me to all ends. I guess it it could be a cost cutting idea for cars that are manufactured for different countries with right hand drive, but I can't see that being the case for a Saturn?
