Default Re: Goodbye Saturn: Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

My parents purchased their first Saturn in the sping of 1996. It was a '96 Red SL1. I still remember going for a test drive with my brother, dad and the salesman. I was 6 at the time so I was too small to look out the window, but I remember looking at the inside, the new car smell and my dad talking to the salesman.
In '99 I recall looking at the HomeComing invitation. I wanted to go, but we were not able to make it.

My parents still own it that car and it about a 1,000 miles shy of turing over to 250,000 miles.

Since owning that car they also purchase a '99 SL2 in 2005 and in 2008 I bought my first Saturn. I plan on keeping "Eve" for a LONG time to come.

My brother also worked at one of our local Saturn dealers for a short time. He really injoyed it, but running his own business started to take up all his time so he had to leave.

After looking at some of the BMW forums my brother goes on for his car, I can say that there is no other forum like SaturnFans. Everyone here is very friendly and eager to help. I miss that about the Saturn dealers as well.



I hope everyone has a Great New!
