Re: Cleaning Leather Seats

I'll second the Eagle One leather care products for a less expensive alternative. Their cleaner and conditioner are easy to use and do a great job -- I've used them on my last 5 leather interiored...

Re: Aura Update

I'm still assuming that the Aura will eventually get the 6-speed manual with the performance goodies that will be coming in the G6. :)

Re: I just posted my ION in the classifieds section..opinions please!

IMO, spend a little extra and get the S. Skip the Xenons and the heated seats. If you ever sell the car, the S will help with resale -- the extra options won't get you much. Add the sunroof if you...

Re: Saturn Sky and Aura brochures from the 2005 NAIAS

04AWDV6VUE,

So tell me, was there actually a "buzz" around the Saturn displays at the show? I was very disapointed at the emptiness last year -- I felt sorry for the models. :( I'd guess it's a...

Re: Saturn Aura

OK, Hokie, so you've listed two cars designed in the last four years that you like better than the Aura. Does that put the Aura at #3 on your list? If so, why all the complaining? For GM to design...

Re: 300+ hp AURA Red Line

See, I must have a warped sense of life, but the "sport" in MY ideal SUV, involves a race track, not some backwoods trail. Therefore, MY ideal "SUV" is a high performance wagon, not a high-riding,...

Re: Saturn Aura

Yeah, I know that -- and I'd rather it be an exact clone of the previous BMW 5-series. That's why I qualified my statement to designed in the last 4 years. I don't think there's a nicer on out...

Re: 300+ hp AURA Red Line

It's actually a bigger market then you think -- and on a rebound. I see a lot of Audi Avants, MB wagons, and Passat wagons around here. I'd buy a Redline Aura wagon in a second if one were...

Question Re: Saturn Aura

So very negative, Hokie. Designs change; some hit, others miss -- can't please everyone. Although, answer me this: Have you seen a better looking sedan designed in the last four years? I haven't....

Re: Why did 93+ S don't have oil guage?

Let's see, I spun a bearing in my 93 SC2 on a race track due to oil starvation and the OIL light never came on. I'm pretty sure that an oil pressure gauge would have saved me (from myself :( ). In...

Re: brake rotors and pads

I'm actually in the market for pads, myself. I constantly hear that the EBC greens are the best all-round pad for street and track for less than $100. I'm still not sure if I want to get some...

Re: brake rotors and pads

Brake pads are just as big of a compromise as tires. There are good pads for the street, good pads for Auto-X, and good pads for big tracks -- no one pad can do it all. Pick the best pad for your...

Re: Comparison: Aura & the G6

Well, hey! lucky for you you can still get a polymer VUE, ION, or maybe even find an L still on the lot. Get 'em while they're hot -- if polymer is such a must-have for you, nothing is standing in...

Re: For Ion owners who used to drive S Saturns

Not trying to flame you, Kim -- just wanted less generalization. :) If you're comparing an ION to a SOHC S, then I understand your point. I've had both of mine (SC2 and ION3 -- both manuals) on...

Re: For Ion owners who used to drive S Saturns

Jerry, I've owned both, but I'm not going to touch this one. If you search the archives you'll find 3 years of comparison threads. I'm not sure there has been a more divisive topic in these forums....

Re: Comparison: Aura & the G6

They can overemphasize the wheel wells all they want as long as they back it up with appropriate-sized wheels/tires. IMO, this is the main reason why the Germans look so sporty. Because the others...

Re: My UnChevyized Version of AURA

Nice job, zallen! I do like it. As for the grille/fascia, If they offered a bi-turbo version with a FMIC in the big grille space in the bottom middle, that'd really be awesome!

Re: Lutz: What You See is What You Get

Am I reading this right? So, it will get the 6-speed manual that's been rumored to show up in the G6 this summer? That's great news! :) Do you know the source of that box?

Re: 5-speed driving habits...

Chalk me up as a shift-into-neutral guy. Unless I'm only pausing at a stop sign (and have already downshifted into 1st gear), I put it in neutral. It's so much of a habit, I even do it in...

Re: OEM alternators = *****??

Strange.

My original alternator lasted 7 years. I replaced it with a "quality replacement part" from Advance Auto Zone which lasted less than a year. I then replaced it with a genuine Saturn...
