i own a 96 saturn sc2. i purchased it in april of 2000, with 43,000 miles on the odometer. since then, i have driven approximately 23,000 miles, noticing a significant oil consumption issue. when on the highway, it will use approximately a quart every 500 miles. around town, i can squeeze out more, around needing one quart every 1,000 miles. i have heard complaints from others, and feel that this is an issue that needs to be addressed. i myself work on cars all the time and know to check and add oil (much cheaper than an overhaul). however, for those people who don't do so and only change oil every 3,000 miles may well end up stranded. this seems to definitely be a recurring safety issue with saturn that needs to be dealt with immediately. thank you. ts

Location:
Davie, FL

march 22, 2003 i purchased an saturn ion 3. within the 1st the week there was problems starting the car. the car was in for service 2 times in 2 weeks. finally the engine light started flashing (3rd time). supposedly the car was fixed. 3 days later the dealer's service department called me at saturn corp.'s request to immediately return the car as the engine could blow up. the engine had a cracked cylinder which caused coolant to leak into the engine with about 650 miles. also, another saturn ion with 2500 miles was sitting in the dealer's lot with a cracked cylinder in the engine. i was released from the sale on april 17, 2003. i took a 2nd saturn ion 3 on april 17, 2003. this car has jerky steering problems coming out of turns and sever transmission problems. the car kicks when turning on the ignition, engine gets racketing when put into reverse, when changing gears - kicks, slides, and will surge, and bounce through gears between 30 mph to above 70 mph. the service manager said, "all the ions drive this way. there's nothing wrong with the car". this car has been in for service 4 times. each time the car is returned worse than the time before.*ak

june 1999 saturn sent a notice regarding the cylinder head defect that may occur. they extended warranty to 100,000 miles or 6 years. however knowing there is a defect in their workmanship, i attempted contact with less than 69,000 miles on my saturn when the cylinder head showed all the signs of a crack. this included oil in the radiator. saturn accepts no liability for this seeing it out of the six year warranty period. however it is well within the 100,000 mile mileage period.
