Most Anal Retentive Saturn Owner

Guessing if you've gotten 100, 200 or 300k+ from your SL, you just might be a little A-R (or just lucky). With 286,000 miles, motor never apart and original clutch and rear brakes, folks consider me...

Re: O.E. Parts

Parts guy I spoke with said parts for newer Saturns were bought back and sent off to other GM dealers. Sounds like Saturn-specific parts (for SLs and SCs) weren't deemed worthwhile to mess with and...

Re: 2007 Vue Redline Issues

Seller had sign asking $10k, which they dropped to $9600 when I finally called. KBB shows value to be around $7600 - so a big premium for being one owner w/ 66,000 miles in very good condition. Too...

Re: 2007 Vue Redline Issues

Appreciate the insight! The additional maintenance of the Honda parts doesn't put me off - can't be any harder to find than Saturn stuff recently.

As much as I love the RL's style (interior is...

2007 Vue Redline Issues

I'm a SL owner (with 247,000) miles and saw a 2007 Redline parked on the side of the road today with a For Sale sign on it. I've always lusted after a RL, but know bumpkiss about Vues.

So a couple...

Creeping Crud

While replacing the radiator and hoses on my '02 SL the other week, noticed the bottom of the engine looked a bit "moist". Took off the passenger side splash shield yesterday and found a good 1/2"...

Re: Oil filters

I don't believe in "extended use" oil - esp. in Saturns known to burn oil as they age. Here is what's gotten me to 232,000 miles (so far):

Reality Check - 50,000 Miles of Bliss Come to an End

I've been MIA for quite a while as I've enjoyed over 50,000 of automotive bliss -$0 car payments, $0 for repairs and 33-37 mpg (not the best, but can't complain).

Until yesterday.

Bought a shifter bushing a year ago figuring after 180,000 miles mine had to be on its last legs. So 20,000 miles later, I finally decide I should install it.

Based on what I've read, went ahead and purchased a replacement shifter bushing. Figured 9 years and 180,000 miles was enough for the OE to have worn out and become brittle.

Re: tools question

If noise is a big issue, I'd recommend a good pair of American Safety of DC hearing protectors. If its a noise issue for others, might want to consider an electric powered rachet/impact gun.
