Re: Should I Buy? 03 L300 50K $6200

can't go wrong with the Taurus. A lot of car for the price. If you're mechanically inclined get the 3.0 OHV engine, easier to work on and bulletproof. Just make sure you install a trans cooler right...

Re: Saturn Ion 2007 Sedan Fog Lights?

Re: Gave up the Ion yesterday

is the singing and the group picture that important? It sure was nice, but that's not the reason for me getting a Saturn. My reasons were the fact it was plastic panels, user friendly maintenance, US...

Re: Lowered car on a lift, am I being paranoid?

Re: security system issues

if your mechanic did not know the vue has not PS fluid/reservoir, I'd run from him.....I agree with the others, typical BCM symptoms.

Re: 5qt oil overfill?!

I see what you're saying. However, since I've had the Ion 5qts have just been right bringing the dipstick up where it belongs. On older cars I had, putting in what the manual called for would have...

Re: Another Ion Quade Coupe L3 gone for good!

glad you're well. Just get over the initial trauma and sue the $h!t out of him for not stopping. Pretty amazing that your car kept going after all that....

Re: My ION is paid for

well, unless you're the one deciding how much a trade is worth, it does not matter whether you look at it or not. KBB is what another buyer or dealer will go by.

Re: 5W20 vs. 5W30

I agree with the the winter 5W20 would be ok. In the summer I'd stay away from it. However, I don't think it will hurt the car a bit.

Re: New here!

I disagree. Changing synt oil every 3000 miles is a waste of money. Rather than looking at your oil to tell whether it's good or not, send it in for an analysis. About the Lucas thing, I'm sure it's...

Re: I want 300whp

I'd just sell it and use the profit + the 7Gs to buy a used Porsche Boxter. You can get some very nice deals for an '02 Boxter S with low miles and then you're in a totally different league.

Re: 2007 Saturn Ion Spark Plugs?
