so i bought a saturn at the behest of at least 5 of my friends telling me i should. now i totally regret it. in the one year since ive bought it, the main computer needed replaced, tie rod needed replaced, there's problems with the dashlights, some have completely stopped working, doesnt start in exteme cold, had ignition problems, and now this week i found out i have to get the thermostat replaced, which of course is not covered under the warranty-so if your thinking about buying this car--DON'T.
