Re: Do you think they will ever build Saturns again?

The GM dealer has 2 2012 Captiva's on sale low mileage. So they have no haggle pricing, return policy and now are selling what are basically VUE's;)

Re: Do you think they will ever build Saturns again?

Re: Front door stop noise

Only way to fix is replace. On my LS1 it creaked and then I saw a crack near wear it attaches to the door. Had my mechanic replace no noise. The new piece looked different.

Re: Do you think they will ever build Saturns again?

Re: Do you think they will ever build Saturns again?
