In June of 1982, Alex C. Mair had the idea to found Saturn. A little over a year later, the idea came to fruition, and Saturn was officially created as a small car company. GM decided to buy the company two years later, introducing the world to the Saturn SC and SL. Deeming themselves a “new kind of car company,” Saturn released unique car models throughout the 90s, with its S-Series being widely popular in the US. They ended up producing the first electric car for GM, and their ideas continued to expand from there. Unfortunately, not everybody was as on-board as Saturn was, and eventually, in 2010, Saturn production was halted by GM. Despite the fact that Saturns are no longer being made, their legacy lives on as some of the best compact cars in American history. If you’ve held on to your Saturn over the years, it deserves only the best of the best when it comes to replacement components. To do this, always replace your vehicle’s parts with OEM ones. Genuine Saturn parts are going to work significantly better in your Saturn than aftermarket parts, giving your ride the performance it deserves.
