You can buy the Factory Service Manuals for your car from the dealer. They should cost no more than $150 and are infinitlely more helpful than any aftermarket manual. Mine have saved me $100's over the last couple of years.

Hey, I didn't know you can buy those from a retailer!! I keep looking all over the net for a factory service manual for my SC2, but I can't find one. I'm going to call my dealer today and see. I'm sure it's worth the money, because those manuals look complete down to every detail (I need it to prepare to install some mods).

yes you can buy FSM from the retailer service dept or order them from the back of the Saturn owners handbook (look in the glove box).

Call Customer care ASAP. Your dealer should have sold you a manual or have ordered one for you with no hassle. Now look in the back of your owners manual and find the phone number of Saturn Publications...they can sell you a set of FSM's directly.

My dealer wanted $150 for just the S-series set. It sounds like he was trying to screw you. I'd call other Saturn dealers in your area, even if they are too far to drive to and get quotes. Maybe if you talk to the manager you can get a more reasonable deal.

I've also been looking for a 2000 S-series manual from Chilton or Hayes, not really for doing mods but more or less for maintenance and repair.

Does anyone know if a 1999 Chilton manual would work for a 2000? I guess I never looked into how much changed from 1999 to 2000 in the SL's besides the interior and exterior.
