Re: What is the correct idle speed for my SL1 ?

Re: Rock Auto close-out parts

Front bumper emblem

I am the original owner of my 2001 Saturn SL1. I want to replace the front bumper emblem. The original was defaced by a rock on the road. Can I do this without removing the front bumper?

Re: Choosing a Saturn

I recommend any of the S-Series. These are the cars that made the Saturn brand legendary. I owned three: a 93 SL2 which I foolishly (in retrospect) traded to buy a brand new 2001 SL1. I bought a 2002...

Re: Best value tires or tire deals...go!

I tried Douglas X Tracs once on my Saturn SL1 - for one day. I got no 'feedback' on the road. It felt like I was steering a sailboat. I returned them the next day for Goodyear VIVA tires. That was...

windshield swap - from a 1999 SL1 to 2002 SL1

My son has a new windshield for his 2002 SL1. He has decided to junk his car instead of rebuilding it. Can I put this windshield on a 1999 SL1 ?
