The Saturn car company came into being in 1985, with its first car, the Saturn S-Series four-door sedan, being launched in 1991. It was a spaceframe design, which meant many of the body panels were not stress-bearing, and so could be made from lighter materials. In 1992 a coupe version of the car was also released, with an SW (Sedan Wagon) model being released in 1993. All were powered by a 1.9-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. All models had a five-speed manual gearbox and twin front airbags. The car was facelifted in 1996 to have a more rounded appearance.. The second-generation S-Series appeared in 1997, with a longer wheelbase and more cabin space. This car was facelifted in 2000, and constitutes the third-generation S-Series that continued until it was replaced by the larger Saturn Ion in 2002. Haynes has a Saturn repair manual and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Saturn S-Series manual will be able to help whether you're servicing or repairing your car.
