2001 Saturn SC1 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 302004

SC1 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 33,300 miles


2001 Saturn SC2 bought 2/04 20,000 orginal miles....... suporting documents state the car was sitting and not driven prior to purchasing. As of Oct 2004 and 30,000 miles there has been a leak in exhaust, checked with Saturn dealer and was told I needed a new resonator and pipe dealer wants to charge me approx. $400 to fix, 2nd problem is that my idler pulley is bad and in the process distroying the serpentine drive belt approx. $200 to repair. I feel GM (Saturn) need to own up to these common problems with there vehicles and repair them under recall. The NHTSA has a service bullentin on the exhaust problem that just came out Oct. 2004 bullentin #040605010 (service procedure for replacement of resonator and intermediate pipe) I also feel a car that has 33,300 miles shouldnt need all of this kind of work done to it when these kind of issues usually happen around 60-70,000 miles on any other normal car. I will never buy another GM product, this is my first especially with this low of milage - this has been a big disappointment and let down. Thank you - please put in effect a recall for these issues..... I think GM customers have spent enough on repairs. I very unhappy first Saturn (GM) owner.
