I love my saturn

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Saturn S-Series SC1 2dr Coupe

My Saturn car was an early graduation gift from my uncle. We purchased the car for $650. The only problem Ive had with it is the water pump going out. The sunroof never worked when I got it, but I never even open the visor. My car is a little noisy, but I just passed it off as being a small car. After my previous car, which had much more room, with a much more spacious interior and a much more powerful engine, it was just a little shock that a car could sound so loud. I've learned to love this Saturn and a newer, fancier one is in view.

My Saturn is a 96 with 45K on it (amazing I know). I put 30K on it in 3 years, and I've had some similar problems, but overall I loved my car! Come to find out the cylinder head cracked, just as everyone elses'. What a disappointment! It's not worth fixing, since I still owe on the car, but now I wonder if the ION can do any better long term...is it worth it??




Cracked head problem

Vehicle: 1996 Saturn S-Series SC1 2dr Coupe

I bought my Saturn brand new 8 years ago. I had all of the required checks done on it, and aside from a #2 gear replacement, I have never had a problem...until now. One of the cylinder heads is cracked, and there was never any indication of a problem until I checked my fluids and noticed oil mixing with the coolant. Apparently, this is a defect in this type of engine. This will be a minimum of $1500.00 to fix, about equal to the worth of the car in good shape. Buyers beware! Fixing this problem is no longer covered by Saturn or GM!

What's New for 1996

Traction control is now available on cars equipped with a manual transmission. Finally, both engines now use sequential-port fuel injection in place of multiport injection.
