Re: Extinct Car Day Lawn Show - Oct. 20 2018

IKEA had a 'green' car event this past Saturday at their Houston location. I've never met such an ENTHUSIASTIC bunch. Lots of very good information and some honesty (I asked one of the guys who had...

Re: S-Series Scrapbook

Ha. I would have NEVER purchased a Saturn if the first s-series had looked like the prototype. I loved the original sporty look of the s-series sedan.

Re: What did they steal from you? S-Series PSA

Haha. Yeah, it is like baseball stats. They'll even out for most folk in the end. I've never had any significant issues with car folks. I even leave about $30 worth of quarters in the center...

Re: Gas Mileage has Suddenly Improved

Meanwhile, the guy who initially released the smoke bomb, hasn't been seen since. :D

If I had gotten such a dramatic increase/decrease in MPG, I would KNOW why.

Re: Magnetic tool retriever

Well ... I tried to retrieve it with one of those rare earth magnets (very strong) and a wire hanger. The magnet manage to get loose from the hanger and now is stuck inside the door for an eternity....

Re: Magnetic tool retriever

Re: Magnetic tool retriever

I never touched it - came loose on its own (apparently a common problem for my vehicle from youtube videos).


I may do this.

Re: Magnetic tool retriever

Well, I found a $3 one and a $7 one at Harbor Freight. Gave them a call and they have both in stock (on the way home from work). I know the $7 one bends - not sure about the $3. If the $3 bends,...

That looks ideal for $5. Heck, I'd even pay $10 for that! :D

Re: Save a Saturn from Sinking! Who's with me?

If you take an average, it will occur on the 28th of March, just before midnight. Except, you would expect it to occur during the warm part of the day, so March 29 at 2:30 PM. ;)

Re: Magnetic tool retriever

Thanks. I definitely need one that can FLEX. The opening at the top requires a 90 degree turn to reach the bottom. I'm just wondering if I need anything that powerful or if just about any of them...

Re: oil useage

I haven't added oil to the Saturn in over seven months. Of course, I sold it on 9/30/27. :arr:

Re: Poor Fuel Economy compared to everyone else.

^^^ This.

If EVERY vehicle YOU drive is getting less than the expected MPG, you either have extremely bad luck or you have very bad driving habits.

Re: Modern Day Automatic Transmission

I don't know where you got those numbers from, but they aren't accurate. The bias is clearly evident. :D I don't have the 'turbo' model - I have the better MPG model and average about 36, combined...

Re: Is GM Stupid?

Agreed. I sold my Saturn after 16 years of great use and doubt I'll ever buy GM.
