    I had a mazda 5 briefly. My main complaint was major rust issues. Other than that it was a cool car

    Oh I'll be sticking around. Seeing what everyone's up to on their sattys. More then likely it's getting a basic personality change. Fog lights, axle back exhaust, hubcentric spacers, wheels will be painted bronze and I'll clean her up more and get those small dents out. As for rust I got lucky no rust yet. But I'll more than likely get it coated for the upcoming snow.

    I'm a bit late with this post it was from like 10 days ago... But I got my windows tinted. 35% is plenty since I drive at night so much. Plenty for my needs for this car.

    $143 from a reputable shop. Lifetime warranty. Check Groupon and Livingsocial for deals before you pay full price. (Like$100 more from this place)

    Made the 1000 mile trip to Arizona yesterday with the wagon. Everything seemed great. I bought a roof bag to bring a bunch of stuff down with me. Mostly presents. That really killed my gas mileage. Didn’t think the extra drag had that much of an effect. My average was only 28mpg. Not a good sign either way. Once I got into pheniox the tranny on the wagon would not go into second gear without being forced in with a loud grinding noise. After some searching I found a post from a guy who has the exact same issue. Tranny was toast in his case.

    http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=188527

    Here is my my issue now. Do I pick up a jy tranny here for a few hundred dollars and slap it in hoping it fixes it. Or limp it home and install the one that is sitting in my shop.

    Today was the last day i got to drive my Swagon. I sold it to someone who desperately needed it for $600 on the promise that he'd take care of it monitor the oil biweekly, monitor coolant levels, and genuinely take care of it.

    I gave him tips on where to get Saturn parts in a pinch at local junkyards and what it needs to be driving 150% better. I told him it needed motor mounts , new tires, suspension upgrade, exhaust leaks fixed, and a shifter cable bushing. I feel bad for selling it because that bad boy was the best Car I've ever owned.

    Dam that's your persona. And your a better person for selling it to someone who was in need! You should have a contingency that he sell it back when he's done with it!!!

    Yeah dude i felt bad especially because this guy just bought a now dead Tercel two weeks ago. Apparently the previous owner mixed in synthetic oil with conventional to hide an engine knock he drove it not even 2days and the motor was toast.

    I cleaned up and organized the garage a bit. We can now fit 2.25 cars in there. Sometimes I really miss the 4 stall garage at our old place. Don't ever miss the house that it came with though. House only beat the gatage by 50 sq feet and had 3/4 thick walls.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    That reminds me I should sell my heated seat kits. I don't really have much use for them. A record breaking morning in NC is around 10F, and with my car in the garage, its still 50F
