Does everybody own a Saturn now?

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Does everybody own a Saturn now?

Just decided to take a peak in the domestic forum and to my suprise I find 6 out of the 7 threads I haven't checked (the bolded ones) are about Saturns. Just seemed kind of weird, guess I kind of just contributed to it. BTW - this thread is pointless, just a random share. But I guess if you want to talk a bout something maybe the new Saturn Sky coming out? How close will it be to the Solstice?

Yeah, I noticed that also. :laughing:

At first I thought "the same idiot posted 6 different thread on Saturns" but come again they are all different people! All talking about different Saturns. What are the odds of that.

I'd take an Ion Redline, much better looking (on the outside anyhow) than the Cobalt SS.

Hmm... Not familiar with this car. Could you possibly post a pic?

I'd take neither, just not a fan of supercharged Four Cylinders unless it's the BEST idea (ie supercharging a S2000 is much easier than turbocharging one).

It's the same basic vehicle as the Cobalt just a little less performance oriented. The Cobalt SS is a little quicker and handles slightly better.

Hey thx guys, but I think i would stick with the colbalt ss. Looks better in my opinion.

Of course, its right if Honda does it :banghead:.

It has the same everything as the Cobalt SS. Saying its less performance oriented is, well, stupid.

I like it better because of the rear suicides.

How does my comment have ANYTHING to do with what HONDA does? Honda does NO forced induction to the S2000, that's all AFTERMARKET stuff. Moron.

I said that because it's EASIER to supercharge the S2000 rather than turbocharge it because they make kits to where that's all you need, the supercharger (and they all add between 100-120 crank hp). To whereas with a Turbo setup they ALL either come with or HIGHLY recommend getting all new internals for the motor (Afterall it'd be dumb to try and turbocharge a 11:1 CR motor). IT's SAFER and CHEAPER to supercharge it. That was one of my FEW exceptions when it comes to turbochargng and supercharging I4's. I dont like the Cobalt SS and Ion redline because they are SUPERCHARGED rather than what they SHOULD be which is turbocharged (All IMO that is).

You keep getting dumber and dumber dont spew shit about stuff you have f*cking clue about. I said the Ion Redline and Cobalt SS are the same basic vehicle as they share a the same supercharged Ecotec but the ENGINE alone doesnt detonate performace...

Not only did EVERY place that tested these two get quicker 1/4 mile's with the SS but also slightly better handling numbers across the board.

Why?

First off, the Cobalt SS has a better LSD. BIG deal when dealing with handling and acceleration performance.

Second the Cobalt SS has larger wheels/tires which give it more grip (As it gets about .3g-.5g more grip on a skidpad than the Redline does) and slightly quicker 1/4 miles (Even though the Cobalt SS weighs slightly more).

Third the ratios of the tranny are quicker in the SS than they are in the Redline improving acceleration even more.

Fourth the suspension is a bit firmer in the SS than the Redline.

There are even more...

The Ion Redline was basically a SETUP for how they could IMPROVE upon the design for the Cobalt SS.

I agree, plus I like the Quad Coupe doors that open backwards. :mrgreen:

haha actually i do own a saturn. partially cause i used to work there and got a deal, but also becuase i was all about a low maint car with good gas mileage.
saturns are no joke man, very easy to maintain cars. nothing fancy obviously, i wouldnt think about doing anything to this car in lines of improvements. just a get around car.
