Anyone actually used 0W20 Synthetic in their S-Series?

Still have my old '97 SW2 and '92 SL1. Don't drive them much these days... both around the 200K mark +/- a few thousand. I've used 10W30 for the life of both cars. I've skimmed through some of the...

Anyone have Autocheck or Carfax Access?

I was looking to buy a used 2007 Saturn VUE Hybrid. I was wondering if anyone could run the VIN number for me. Please PM me. Thanks a bunch!

Was considering getting a used 2006 Saturn VUE V6

Car has 119000 miles on it. Anything I should be concerned about? I've only owned S Series cars, so I figured this would be the best place to ask. What I'm wondering is what typical problems...

Edmund's names the Ion one of the 10 Worst Cars Ever?

Personally, I find it stupid. What's even worse is, a lot of Ion owners were defending the car and all the comments were deleted (How Convenient).

I agree, the Ignition Switch is a problem (but...

Intermittent non-Start 97 SW2 Manual Trans

Re: Alternatives to Spike Spiders?

Hmm... that is a problem. Perhaps I can hijack the 14 inch wheels off my SL1. Still might tear up the car. Perhaps I'll just rent a truck and mess up someone else's car.

Alternatives to Spike Spiders?

Are there any other low-profile alternatives to Spike Spiders? Might end up in some snow in the near future. I was hoping there were slightly cheaper alternatives to Spike Spiders. I hear some...

CarFax, etc...

Can anyone run a check for me on a VIN number for a Saturn VUE? I know this isn't an S-Series question, but I figure there are still more S-Series owners like me out there.

I tried the old...

Re: How to Change Power Door Lock Switch 98 sL2

Sounds fair. Glad they don't overcharge for shipping on EBay. Perhaps you can ask the EBay seller if they have a passenger side switch they can order for you. I'd imagine a lot of these sellers...

Re: How to Change Power Door Lock Switch 98 sL2

Re: How to Change Power Door Lock Switch 98 sL2

I guess Nalley is cheaper. Since you're already paying for shipping, may as well get other stuff your Saturn will need that are dealer-only type items... like the PCV Valve and a spare ECTS.

I guess it's still cheaper on EBay. After a BS shipping fee and BS "handling" fee on the websites... the consolidated fees on EBay are cheaper. Just use the part numbers to find them on EBay,...

Re: Uneven hood on a 2006 AWD V6 VUE

I live in California, is 10w-30 oil okay for the V6 VUE? Or is 5W-20 specific for truck engines? I'll probably ended up using some kind of mixed synthetic anyway.

Thanks,
Sam

Re: Uneven hood on a 2006 AWD V6 VUE

Re: Uneven hood on a 2006 AWD V6 VUE

Re: Uneven hood on a 2006 AWD V6 VUE

The car has about 105K miles on it. I'd assume the timing belt hasn't been changed. How much would that cost to replace? Anything else croak around 100K miles?

Thanks,

Re: Uneven hood on a 2006 AWD V6 VUE
