So when I took the car in last Tuesday to get the airco fixed, I asked them to take a look at the windows too. I thought it was probably a loose fuse, but apparently the window motor units had died (not surprising. They always seem to be very cheaply made for rear windows.) So they fixed the airco while I was there and then ordered the part for the next day. When I brought the car in the next day, they told (after quite some time) that they'd only received part of the part, not the motor assembly. So they insisted I take a rental and get out of their hair. So I did. I picked up the car all right and tight Thursday.
Hoppie is thinking that rather than repair his airconditioning, he might well buy a new car. The problem is that they don't make his car anymore. So he's not sure what wants if he can't have a new Saturn. We looked at this old dealership to see what they have and there's a Saturn Ion that he didn't totally hate, so we might go back and take a look at that.
We looked at the website and the nearest approximate car recommended was dreadful.

I know nothing about Saturns and what they are like, but recently I had the opportunity to drive a Hyundai Sonata (2011 actually) when I drove up to PA. I loved it. When I am forced to get a new car (probably soon after I sell the townhouse), I am going to be looking at these more seriously.
I was really hoping that Saturn would be able to break free of GM and become their own company. I loved the Saturns that I have had.
My Ion was really good. There were a few issues but those were mostly related to the dealership we used(Quincy), which closed about a year after we had it. Sadly the car only made it a few years before she was in an accident with a drunk driver(other car). No one was seriously injured and my friend driving the Ion walked away with just a bruise on his shin.
