Saturn was a great car company. Everyone remembers watching the Saturn commercials where the owners all went to a giant picnic. They had a great sense of community, at least in those commercials, and those commercials might have influenced you to buy the car. However, as great as the company was or felt it was closed by its parent company. Leaving you, the consumer, with trouble finding the parts you need to maintain the vehicle, which, if you are reading this, then you are most likely trying to hold on to that car.
Age of a part is a big factor in how long it has before it fails you. Driving eventually wears down parts and it wears down parts faster than other parts just because of the friction involved. Humans are not symmetrical and neither are their cars. You have a certain driving style which makes certain actions happen more often than other people, therefore, you wear down parts differently than other people. OEM parts will last for long periods of time, but we all must buy parts or have repairs at some point.
You probably have realized that you what you really want out of the marketplace is OEM Saturn parts or parts that are at least as good as those parts. Of course, the aftermarket parts are not always the best quality, unfortunately. You may or may not have found that out in a painful way. Nothing is worse than being excited about getting a part only to have that part fail on you. You probably realized that it was a waste of money and the time it took to get the part was a wait too. The answer here, of course, is to get OEM parts which are becoming harder and harder to find. However, they are your best option to maintain your car for as long as humanly possible.
Keeping up the value of your car is not only a financial decision but also a pride issue. You want to keep your car as long as possible because it is a badge of honor for some people. "I'm still driving my Saturn." You may also love your car, and since you do you deserve the genuine OEM parts you need to keep your car going.
Luckily, the parent company has never gone away and still has OEM parts for Saturn's. It is great news for you especially if you are trying to stay in that Saturn. You can still get OEM parts that will help your Saturn withstand the rigors of time and give you many years of good service before you need to change the part again. It might be a cycle, but, at least, you are keeping the car you love as long as you can keep it.
