2002 Saturn SC2 - The Daily Driver (No More)
The Shaggin' Wagon made great transportation for all of 3 months. One day when returning from Petsmart, I noticed coolant and oil seeping from the water pump\timing cover area. Not wanting to have another car with the engine dismantled, I decided (with a little help from Lisa) that I needed to just bite the bullet and get a new car. My only requirements were a stick, black, power locks and windows, air conditioning, not an economy car, and two doors. That left all of about 4 cars on the market. Saturn is no longer making the SC2 after this year, so they had a heck of a time tracking down this car. I got the only black on black car on the market. The Shaggin' Wagon went for $500 (not bad considering it was leaking so much). It was last seen heading towards Mexico to lead the hard life of a Mexican Taxi.
On September 9th 2002 I brought this new car into my life (wow! a car that doesn't need work or look trashy!).
It's been a decent car so far. The only thing I hate about it is the daytime running lights, but I just pulled the relay from the fuse box and that fixed that problem. Now the right bright headlight doesn't come on. Doh! I'll fix that.Oh yeah, I did fix it. Pull the fuse and jump two pins. Easy fix. Nice not to have DRLs all the time (stupid GM).
