I live in Wisconsin, land of 7-month winters and lots of road salt, hence most cars here are guaranteed to rust in about 5 years. The polymer panels on Saturns has always interested me, yet I've read horror stories about oil consumption, and head gasket/valve failures, and now, broken timing chains. I have a VW golf right now, a very good car, but the repair & maint. costs are very high. I'm looking for a car that will go 200K miles that is cheaper than $1000/year (not including oil changes) to maintain. Is saturn such a car, or are they junk?
