The contact owns a 2003 Saturn L200. The seat belt buckle would not latch on the front driver's seat. When it does finally latch, the seat belt cannot be unlatched unless the contact spends an hour attempting to unlatch it or crawl out. The contact paid $149.12 to repair the seat belt. The current mileage was 65,889 and failure mileage was 60,000. Updated 7/3/08 the dealer replaced the seat belt buckle. Updated

Since purchasing my six month old car in 2003 I have had numerous problems. I've had a seat belt buckle replaced, I've had my right front wheel bearing replaced, I've had them looking the back end of my car for a vibration that wont go away when ever I turn the air or heater on, which they say they can't find and don't hear. My rear windshield leaks badly. And today only two and a half years after I got my car, my brakes failed me twice, the second time having me dive in to a curb totally damaging my tire and the steering in my car, and the air bags never went off. Going to file with insurance and take to repair shop.
