Re: O2 sensor ????

The Matrix is undoubtedly a great car. Since I live in Texas, I can't get ABS unless I specially order it, which takes 5 months, according to my dealership.

I haven't ever transported cow manure,...

Re: O2 sensor ????

Hi, Jmettee!

I wanted a lot of cargo space but good gas mileage. My final three choices were the Matrix, the Scion xB, and the Ford Escape Hybrid. Any car I choose must be ordered to spec because...

Re: O2 sensor ????

Ha ha! No, I didn't choose to buy a new car because of the O2 sensor. I did get it replaced, on Saturn's dime even! Thank you, Saturn!

I was ready to buy a new car because my warranty ran out...

Re: O2 sensor ????

Dumb question: Does the GT come w/standard transmission only? I prefer the base with ABS, though. Dunno why it's so hard to get ABS as an option in my area ...

Re: O2 sensor ????

Oh, I didn't know that! I think I was looking on Edmunds. I will try the Pontiac site. Next question is ... can I get ABS in my area!

Yes. I want FWD; Vibe only comes as 4WD.

53 cu ft max cargo capacity (65 for escape hybrid)
good Toyota reliability...

Re: O2 sensor ????

Hi, cdp326. Yes, in fact, I *did* check out the HHR but didn't like the gas mileage (that's actually #1 on my list of must-have's, but must be balanced with the ability to carry cargo (ie animals))....

Happy Springhill Rocks!

At the advice of you awesome Saturn fans, I called Springhill to gripe about the O2 sensor going out at 37K. They were surprised that I hadn't been offered a loner car, and they jumped in immediately...

Re: O2 sensor ????

JMettee,

Yes, I do like the look, but will need a new car sooner than that one is coming out, so at this point, I'll research the Matrix. Yuck -- car salesmen!

Golf Tango, can you elaborate on...

How important is ABS?

Any opinions? I know you get an insurance discount with ABS. I know I've used it a few times when stopping quickly. Any ideas?

Re: O2 sensor ????

Code is P0130; O2 sensor closed loop; part #12568234.

They're charging me $135 for that plus $170 for the "36K checkup", so I will leave here (I'm at the dealership) in two hours or so and $300...

Thanks for the good information. No, it hadn't gotten wet (we've been in a "mini-drought" here in central Texas!).

Re: ION tech

No, I'm not as happy because of my local dealership (NOT the car or the company!).

The code they gave me is P01030.

Mean anything?

I have an appointment with them today.

JustCallYouBob,
So I guess they're not using CVT on the new VUE's either? I didn't even know they were having problems with it. How many speeds is the new one? Is it being used on any 2004 cars?
