rebadging dealerships by Oppie[_7_]
Passed by Saturn of White Plains (NY) today. The familiar Saturn logo was replaced by a temporary 'Buick GMC' sign. Last year, on the other side of town, Sholz Buick, a long time presence here, went belly-up. On another note, in a nearby town, Harrison NY... The Prius that crashed into a stone...

I have about 145,000 km on this boat. I took it in for routine work and Canadian Tire pulled me aside and said I had a leaking head gasket and to prove it they showed me flakes of brown sediment which allegedly came from my cooling system. The cost to repair would be around $1800. Naturally, I...

2007 VUE New Tires by [email protected]
I had to be very careful where I took my '99 SW2 for tire replacement because some tire dealers used too much torque on the wheel nuts and could damage the brake disks. Do the '07 VUEs have the same problem? Thanks in advance, Howard

My '96 SL single cam has 185K on the clock, and has been running fine. A few weeks ago I changed the oil and hosed off the motor with a garden hose. Then the "Service Engine" light came on, but it was running fine. A few days later it went off, and my buddy at work hooked up his code readed and...

Saturn Headlights by lil abner
We have an 07 Saturn Ion. The high beams are lower than the low beams on our other vehicles. Low beams are ridiculous. I've repeatedly asked Saturn to readjust them. They say they can't. Other times they say they have adjusted them. We feel like we are taking a risk driving at night. How do you...

The Penske File...Smokescreen ?? by JG[_2_]
Was the proposed sale to Penske just a charade to boost sales of Saturns during the clunker program ?? Sure seemed like a Costanza operation to me.

I just heard the news... it got me to thinking, my very first internet search was for "Saturn" (My second search: Saturn -planet). I had a photo of my '94 SC1 on the "Saturn Server", subscribed to the listserv, followed the newsgroup, laughed at the "Ellen" spoof. Farewell, Saturn. -- Geek code...

Rotating tires? by JimR[_2_]
My '97 SL2 owners' manual says to rotate the tires in the classic X patters (LF to RR, etc.). However, I have heard for years that radial tires should not be rotated to the opposite side of the vehicle (reverse rotation). Which is correct? Thanks JimR
