I think he means the 2005 Si. Since the five speed was his last saturn, and the auto will be his next.

Same thing happened to me on my 1999 Saturn SW2 :

The Saturn dealership quoted a repair of $1800 with a new clutch as well. If you had to pay $1200 twice, then I can understand why you got fed up.

I *almost* got rid of my Saturn then, because it was hard to justify the cost of the repair, but my friend begged me to go to his mechanic, and he did it and more for $1100. Without saturnfans.com and my friend, I would have gotten rid of it.

pfff! My 2002 Saturn SL2 5-speed manual averages 37MPG on my 65-mile work commute, 16 miles of which is uphill twisty rural road on the way home. Even the freeway is hilly at points. If I had the fortune of living on flat land, I'd bet I could get 45-50MPG.

Many will say hills are to your advantage if you can figure out how to use them,

Ah yes, "Context Clues" -- my bad.

I won't hold it against you And yes, I had the 2001 SL1 5-Speed, Quill Bearing went twice and I got fed up and bought the 2005 Civic Si. Due to a recent layoff, and subsequent job change, my income is lower. I decided to go back to a Saturn, although this time I picked an automatic.

Since I drive 65 miles one way to work now, all flat highway, I hope to get 40 to 45 MPG.

Though as said earlier, I may miss a 5-speed, but I won't miss the quill bearing problems. I've got a few more questions, but I'm gonna pop over to the other forums and post a few.
