Re: The $700 Saturn

Thanks! I bought it from the local NAPA.
Crawling under the car yesterday, it looks like the water pump is starting to leak already. :x

Re: The $700 Saturn

The shifts are much smoother than they were before I changed it. My last Saturn was a 5 speed, so I can't compare with anything. Every once in a while, 3rd gear shifts weird after a long run on the...

The $700 Saturn

In November 2015 I bought a 1999 Homecoming Edition SL2 for $700. I got it expecting it would need some work, and it did. It was all very minor and now I feel like I have a pretty reliable car to...

Tried one on Nero, and that didn't work either. The Saturn radio says ERR, and ejects the disc. I did convert to "audio CD" before I burned them. I'll try Ashampoo next, I've got one more shot &...
