Default Good Bye Saturn

Well I have had a lot of fun on this Forum. Learned a lot about Saturns and life in general. Talked with some very nice people. Many thanks to you all. I have traded my LW200 in for a 2018 Subaru Impreza. So far I like it. It is also very fun to drive like the Saturn.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It is always hard to see a long term member leave us. Hopefully that Subaru will serve you well. Best of luck to you.

On thing that really troubles me on the Subaru. They use that new 1234YF Freon.

You need to take a loan out to pay for that stuff. $70.00 per pound! You have got to be kidding me!

Good luck with the new Subaru. To be honest I had forgotten about this forum after my Astra was wrecked. But there are a lot of good people, but sadly, the Saturns are not long for this world...

I also was thinking of getting a new Outback for $40k but then I realized I will stay with Saturn till the bitter end. Once you find something you like you don't let go. Good luck I hope it is all you expect it to be.

Same here but least not forget to checkup requires Subaru more computer then car and fixes will cost more and some will require Dealer service bay work only. That's what I don't like no mater what vehicle.

Good luck! My sister bought a new Outback in 2015. She loves it. I must say, it rides nice.
We sold wife's 2002 L200 two years ago (bought a Forte). The L was a good car. It had too many miles though (over 200K).

...
97 SL. Born 6/5/97, bought 7/7/97
08 Burgman 400
02 Haro MTB- can't kill it, still trying though

The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
Will Munny: We all got it coming, kid.

A friend of mine bought a new Impreza last month. 5 spd all wheel drive, it's hard to beat that! I agree, it is fun to drive, and I love the sound of that flat 4.

If I needed a new car I might get the same one, but I don't so I'll drive my Satty until the bitter end

...
My 96 SL2 and 98 SL1 have joined together to become one. So I guess I now have a 1996/8

2003 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Default Re: Good Bye Saturn

My son (he drives his 2003 L300) and I (I drive a 2003 Suburban) went to the Central Florida Autoshow over Thanksgiving and several manufacturers were there offering Test drives. Only 2 brands appealed to use; Subaru and Mazda. When one drove, the other was passenger. He picked the Subaru Impreza and Mazda 3 hatch to drive and I picked the Subaru Crosstrek and Mazda 6 to drive. Impressed with them all.

The Impreza and Crosstrek are identical inside and mechanically pretty much the same. A big gripe from most motoring journalists is that they are slow. They don't offer a turbo version, that's in the next one up Forester and the Impreza 2.0 turbo engine is limited to the WRX.

My Sub is a great vehicle and you throw almost anything in it and it never breaks a sweat at all. Repairs are fairly simple BUT at 15 to the gallon, I'm on the Christmas card list of most gas stations!

I like the Subaru's for their honesty as vehicles. I could see myself in a Crosstrek or Impreza wagon.

I looked at the crosstek and impreza back in 2013. I found them to be way under powered and the cvt was terrible. I ended up buying a v6 Rav4. I like Subaru, but anyone I know that's had one has had to put head gaskets on them.
