1998 SW2
1996 SW2
Default Hello from NW Indiana

First, I want to say "Thank You" to all the past & present people who served and/or died protecting their fellow Americans.

Second, I want to thank everyone in the SaturnFans community because I have referred to this website as a long time lurker to maintain both Saturns in our family.

My first ride in a Saturn was back in 1992. A friend had just graduated from college and bought a red SC2. I remember it being loaded with black leather interior. For the time, it seemed fast (riding shotgun).

Fast forward to 1996. My father started a new job that had a long commute, and he needed a reliable car. Finally bought a 1996 SW2 (gold ext/ tan cloth int). I remember he had to wait for the car to be delivered from the Saturn plant, so the retailer loaned him a black SL2 to drive. They told him not to worry about putting on excessive mileage. Sure miss that level of customer service.

My Saturn ownership began in 1998 when I bought a SW2 (red ext/ gray cloth int). I saw how reliable my father's 96 SW2 was; at that time it had 46k trouble free miles. This influenced my buying decision. Also, the fact that the 1982 Olds Ciera I was driving was rear-ended.

Present day. The 96 has over 200k. Just completed oil change. The 98 has over 100k. It has problems, including one (cracked subframe) that I cannot fix by myself. So, I join the SaturnFans community for help.

Sorry for the long post. More to come in the next few weeks.
