I hope "Saturn Claus" was good to everyone this year! The holiday greeting above was sent to me many, many years ago from a Saturn Car Club in Texas. Yes, Santa really was a Saturn fan! Did you know he had a specially modified white SC2 "sled" he used when he was afraid of getting dents and dings in his other big red sled...
Have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season!
Attention SaturnFans.com Webmail users! Our longtime webmail provider, Everyone.net, will be ending access to free email accounts on Tuesday November 15th, 2016. Subscribers who upgrade to their Mail Plus Total Protection service will continue to have access to their "@mail.saturnfans.com" email addresses and will not be impacted. While on a personal level I am disappointed in the decision, Everyone.net says this change is part of ongoing efforts to reduce email abuse and improve security.
SaturnFans.com will be offline for a few hours tonight for some emergency server maintenance. Work will be done to fix issues related to degrading hard drive performance and should be completed by morning. Thank you for you understanding and support!

Many years ago this time of year was always an exciting time to be a Saturn fan. While Saturn cars generally tended to be more practical in nature, the company would pull back the curtain a bit and show off its wild side in Las Vegas at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. Saturn's show cars never disappointed, and owners sought out aftermarket suppliers for parts that would make their cars go faster, handle better, and look more aggressive.

I used to spend hours researching, writing, and posting stories about Saturn at SaturnFans.com. Since Saturn's untimely closing, Saturn-related news stories are few and far between, but every so often Saturn is still referenced in a news article. As a result, I've built a feed that funnels Saturn stories from my GM Beat Saturn channel, directly into the General Saturn Discussion forum. If any of the articles are of particular interest, such as a recall alert, I'll be sure to also post them right here on the main SaturnFans home page too.
Thank You for Participating in SaturnFans.com's 2012 Saturn Reunion, Should We Do this Again Sometime?
For the past 24 hours we've spent some time looking back at what made Saturn, well Saturn. I had fun posting articles throughout the day, although to be honest, some were pre-loaded into the SaturnFans.com CMS last night and auto-published while I was at work. Thankfully, everything seemed to go off without a hitch and I picked up where I left off when I got home tonight. I really enjoyed this trip down memory lane. It was great to have an opportunity to catch up with everybody in the forums, in the chat room, and on email.
I wanted to post a quick reminder that I'll be in the SaturnFans Chat Room between 9-10pm EDT tonight. I'll be taking questions all night. And I'd like to get some feedback from you all too. For instance, was the Reunion worth the effort to put together? Also, I've worked up a couple different concepts for next-gen SaturnFans.com websites, but I am not sure with the direction I want to take the site in the coming years. What would you like to see in the SF of the future?

For 2009, General Motors offers 18 models in the U.S. that get 30 miles per gallon on the highway, more than is expected of any other automaker. They include cars, crossovers and SUVs from GM’s Saturn, Chevrolet, and Pontiac brands. GM is not only poised to lead the industry again this year, but it also leads in subcompact and midsize non-hybrid car segments.
