Your Saturn Repair Requires Specialized Attention & Care

Your vehicle brand launched under GM in 1985, meant to compete with imports as economical options to other American makes and models. Actual production under the automaker started in the early 1990s. U.S. drivers loved the upstart, as did industry reviewers who provided prestigious award after award to GM’s new line. Some of the best features of these models were dent-proof body panels standard through the year 2000.

Sadly, sales dropped off after 2003. GM answered the poor sales by retiring multiple models, such as the Ion and L-series. The brand’s production stopped in 2009 and the GM line officially went out of business in October 2010. But you can continue driving your reliable Saturn, thanks to the availability of the vehicles’ GM parts.

Saturn Repair About Your Saturn Repair And Maintenance Needs

Your auto brand is focused on making affordable and economical vehicles that last. This works well for you, despite the company going out of business only 25 years after it began.

The annual maintenance cost for your vehicle is $553. This is higher than many other autos, trucks, or SUVs. But with these ownership costs come a certain quality you can rely on. Of course, how much your car costs you depends on its age, mileage, where you drive it, and how well you have cared for it in the past.

Some of the most common problems with Saturns include…..

The Ion’s issues with power steering and warning light. Drivers report losing power steering assist from time to time, with the dash warning light illuminating for “power steering” problems. These drivers also note that when they turn off their vehicle and start it again, the problem resets, and steering functions normally. But to fix the problem, you need Cox Auto’s ASE-certified technicians to replace the electric power steering assist motor.

Drivers of the Vue often note an illuminating check engine light. This can occur because of a loose or worn gas cap. Luckily, this is an easy parts replacement handled by Cox Auto’s Asheville auto repair shop.

Other problems experienced by the brand’s auto owners include the check engine light illuminating for ignition module and coil failure or a transmission fault. Some customers report front brake rotor wear that causes pulsations, failure of the DRL resistor, or an engine oil leak from valve cover gaskets. Recalls involve failed front passenger airbags, driver airbags rupture, and a liftgate closing without warning. The most common of 30 recall issues is one of the various electrical concerns.
