Re: Attention northerners....Winter wiper blade reccomendation?

Rain-X Lattitude or Quantum work very well. They are expen$ive, so I remove them after the spring monsoons and save them in the basement for the next late fall time of year.

Re: weirdness

When you unlock a dirty car, the key picks-up grit and road salt. Then, you immediately put it into the ignition. I think this is one reason why cars used to have a separate door key.

Re: Bad Weather Driving

Find tires that take 31 psi cold Front and 28 psi cold Rear, with tread on-the-ground as wide as the width of the rim flanges and that are without run-out and hop.

Re: Fog lights on second gen Saturn's..not a popular option???

As far as improvements, the fog lights are down where they get pummeled and pitted from road grit. Polish them and then apply some Lamin-X protective film.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Took it on a pre-color tour 500 mile drive on the good Up North roads in Michigan.

The new cars have better front suspension and better transmissions. They accelerate faster because the transmissions are better. Well, that and variable timing.
