✍ NOTES
An Important Message to Owners...
Saturn’s Commitment to You
We are committed to assuring your satisfaction with
your new Saturn.
Your Saturn retailer also wants you to be completely
satisfied and invites you to return for all your service
needs, both during and after the warranty period.
Owner Assistance
Your Saturn retailer is best equipped to provide all
your service needs. Should you ever encounter
a problem that is not resolved during or after the
limited warranty period, talk to a member of dealer
management. Under certain circumstances, GM and/or
GM dealers/retailers may provide assistance after
the limited warranty period has expired when the
problem results from a defect in material or
workmanship. These instances will be reviewed on
a case-by-case basis. If your problem has not been
resolved to your satisfaction, follow the Owner
Assistance on page 28.
We thank you for choosing a Saturn.
GM Participation in an Alternative
Dispute Resolution Program
See Owner Assistance on page 28 for information on
the voluntary, non-binding Alternative Dispute Resolution
Program in which GM participates.
Warranty Service – United States and
Canada
Your selling retailer has made a large investment to
ensure that they have the proper tools, training,
and parts inventory to make any necessary warranty
repairs should they be required during the warranty
period. We ask that you return to your selling retailer for
warranty repairs. In the event of an emergency repair,
you may take your vehicle to any authorized GM
dealer/retailer for warranty repairs. However, certain
warranty repairs require special tools or training that only
a dealer selling your brand may have. Therefore, not
all dealers/retailers are able to perform every repair. If a
particular dealership cannot assist you, then contact
Saturn. If you have changed your residence, visit
any Saturn retailer the United States or Canada for
warranty service.

Things You Should Know About the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Warranty Repairs – Component
Exchanges
In the interest of customer satisfaction, Saturn may offer
exchange service on some vehicle components.
This service is intended to reduce the amount of time
your vehicle is not available for use due to repairs.
Components used in exchange are service replacement
parts which may be new, remanufactured, reconditioned,
or repaired, depending on the component involved.
All exchange components used meet Saturn standards
and are warranted the same as new components.
Examples of the types of components that might be
serviced in this fashion include: transaxle assemblies,
instrument cluster assemblies, radios, compact disc
players, tape players, batteries, and electronic control
modules.
Warranty Repairs – Recycled Material
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines
support the capture, purification, and reuse of
automotive air conditioning refrigerant gases. As a
result, any repairs Saturn may make to the sealed
portion of your air conditioning system, if equipped, may
involve the installation of purified reclaimed refrigerant.
12
After-Manufacture “Rustproofing”
Your vehicle was designed and built to resist corrosion.
Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is
neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal
Coverage. Saturn makes no recommendations
concerning the usefulness or value of such products.
Application of after-manufacture rustproofing products
may create an environment which reduces the corrosion
resistance built into your vehicle. Repairs to correct
damage caused by such applications are not covered
under your New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Paint, Trim, and Appearance Items
Defects in paint, trim, upholstery, or other appearance
items are normally corrected during new vehicle
inspection or during pre-delivery inspection. If you
find any paint or appearance concerns, advise your
retailer as soon as possible. Deterioration due to
use and exposure is not covered by the warranty.
Your owner manual has instructions regarding the care
of these items.
Vehicle Operation and Care
Considering the investment you have made in your
Saturn, we know you will want to operate and maintain
it properly. We urge you to follow the maintenance
instructions in your owner manual.
If you have questions on how to keep your vehicle in
good working condition, see your Saturn retailer,
the place many customers choose to have their
maintenance work done. You can rely on your Saturn
retailer to use the proper parts and repair practices.
Maintenance and Warranty Service
Records
Retain receipts covering performance of regular
maintenance. Repairs required due to damage resulting
from lack of maintenance are not covered by your
warranty. Receipts can be very important if a question
arises as to whether a malfunction is caused by lack of
maintenance or a defect in material or workmanship.
A “Maintenance Record” is provided in the maintenance
schedule section of the owner manual for recording
services performed.
The servicing retailer can provide a copy of any warranty
repairs for your records.
Chemical Paint Spotting
Some weather and atmospheric conditions can create
a chemical fallout. Airborne pollutants can fall upon
and adhere to painted surfaces on your vehicle.
This damage can take two forms: blotchy, ring-shaped
discolorations, and/or small irregular dark spots
etched into the paint surface.
Although no defect in the factory applied paint causes
this, Saturn will repair, at no charge to the owner,
the painted surfaces of new vehicles damaged by this
fallout condition within 12 months or 12,000 miles
of purchase, whichever comes first.
13
Warranty Coverage – Extensions
Time Extensions: The New Vehicle Limited Warranty
will be extended one day for each day beyond the first
24 hour period in which your vehicle is at an authorized
retail facility for warranty service. You may be asked to
show the customer service orders to verify the period of
time the warranty is to be extended. Your extension rights
may vary depending on state law.
Mileage Extensions: Prior to delivery, some mileage
is put on your vehicle during testing at the assembly
plant, during shipping, and while at the retail facility.
For eligible vehicles, this mileage will be added to the
mileage limits of the warranty ensuring that you receive
full benefit of the coverage. Mileage extension eligibility:
•
•
•
14
Applies only to new vehicles held exclusively in
new vehicle inventory.
Does not apply to used vehicles, Saturn-owned
vehicles, retailer owned used vehicles, or retailer
demonstrator vehicles.
Does not apply to vehicles with more than
1,000 miles on the odometer even though the
vehicle may not have been registered for license
plates.
Touring Owner Service – Outside
Continental United States, Alaska,
Hawaii, or Canada
If you are touring outside the Continental United States,
Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada, and repairs are needed,
it is suggested that the necessary repairs be performed
at your expense. Once you return to the Continental
United States, Alaska, or Hawaii, you should provide
your retailer with a statement of circumstances,
the original repair order, and any paid receipts
indicating the work performed and parts replaced for
reimbursement consideration.
Important: Repairs made necessary by the use of
improper or dirty fuels and lubricants are not covered
under warranty. See your owner manual for additional
information on fuel requirements when operating in
foreign countries.
Original Equipment Alterations
Pre-Delivery Service
This warranty does not cover any damage or failure
resulting from modification or alteration to the vehicle’s
original equipment as manufactured or assembled by
Saturn except for Retailer Installed Regular Production
Option (RPO) equipment such as a Delco radio, cruise
control, etc. and Saturn approved retailer installed
accessory packages as identified in the Saturn parts and
accessories manuals. Examples of the types of
alterations that would not be covered include cutting,
welding, or disconnecting of the vehicle’s original
equipment parts and components.
Defects in the mechanical, electrical, sheet metal,
paint, trim, and other components of your vehicle may
occur at the factory or while it is being transported to
the retailer. Normally, any defects occurring during
assembly are identified and corrected at the factory
during the inspection process. In addition, retailers
inspect each vehicle before delivery. They repair any
uncorrected factory defects and any transit damage
detected before the vehicle is delivered to you.
Additionally, Saturn does not warranty non-Saturn
parts and/or calibrations. The use of parts and/or
control module calibrations not issued through Saturn
will void the warranty coverage for those components
that are damaged or otherwise affected by the
installation of the non-Saturn part and/or control module
calibration.
The only exception is that non-Saturn parts labeled
“Certified to EPA Standards” are covered by the
Federal Emissions Performance Warranty.
Important: Retailer installed Saturn parts and
accessories not available as regular production options
may be covered under separate warranties. Consult
your retailer for details.
Any defects still present at the time the vehicle is
delivered to you are covered by the warranty. If you
find any defects, advise your retailer without delay.
For further details concerning any repairs which the
retailer may have made prior to you taking delivery of
your vehicle, ask your retailer.
Production Changes
Saturn and Saturn retailers reserve the right to make
changes in vehicles built and/or sold by them at any time
without incurring any obligation to make the same or
similar changes on vehicles previously built and/or sold
by them.
15
Emission Control Systems Warranty
The emission warranty on your vehicle is issued in
accordance with the U.S. Federal Clean Air Act. Defects
in material or workmanship in Saturn emission parts
may also be covered under the New Vehicle Limited
Warranty Bumper-to-Bumper coverage. In any case,
the warranty with the broadest coverage applies.
What Is Covered
The parts covered under the emission warranty are
listed under the “Emission Warranty Parts List” later in
this section.
How to Determine the Applicable
Emissions Control System Warranty
State and Federal agencies may require different
emission control system warranty depending on:
•
Whether the vehicle conforms to regulations
applicable to light duty or heavy duty emission
control systems.
• Whether the vehicle conforms to or is certified for
California regulations in addition to U.S. EPA
Federal regulations.
To determine eligibility: Light Duty vehicles with a
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 8,500 lbs. or
less; Heavy Duty vehicles with a GVWR greater
than 8,500 lbs.
All vehicles are eligible for Federal Emissions Control
System Warranty Coverage. If the emissions control
label contains language stating the vehicle conforms to
California regulations, the vehicle is also eligible for
California Emissions Control System Warranty
Coverage.
16
Federal Emission Control System
Warranty
Federal Warranty Coverage
• 2 years or 24,000 miles and 8 years or
80,000 miles for the catalytic converter,
vehicle/powertrain control module, transmission
control module or other onboard emissions
diagnostic device, including emission-related
software, whichever comes first.
Federal Emission Defect Warranty
Saturn warrants to the owner the following:
•
The vehicle was designed, equipped, and built
so as to conform at the time of sale with the
applicable regulations of the Federal
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
• The vehicle is free from defects in material and
workmanship which cause the vehicle to fail to
conform with those regulations during the emission
warranty period.
Emission related defects in the genuine Saturn parts
listed under the Emission Warranty Parts List, including
related diagnostic costs, parts, and labor are covered
by this warranty.
Federal Emission Performance Warranty
Some states and/or local jurisdictions have established
periodic vehicle Inspection and Maintenance (I/M)
programs to encourage proper maintenance of your
vehicle. If an EPA-approved I/M program is enforced in
your area, you may also be eligible for Emission
Performance Warranty coverage when all of the
following three conditions are met:
•
The vehicle has been maintained and operated
in accordance with the instructions for proper
maintenance and use set forth in the owner
manual or maintenance schedule supplied with
your vehicle.
• The vehicle fails an EPA-approved I/M test during
the emission warranty period.*
• The failure results, or will result, in the owner of
the vehicle having to bear a penalty or other
sanctions, including the denial of the right to use
the vehicle, under local, state, or federal law.
*Saturn warrants that your retailer will replace, repair, or
adjust to Saturn specifications, at no charge to you,

California Emission Control System
Warranty
This section outlines the emission warranty that Saturn
provides for your vehicle in accordance with the
California Air Resources Board. Defects in material or
workmanship in Saturn emission parts may also be
covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Bumper-to-Bumper coverage. In any case, the warranty
with the broadest coverage applies.
This warranty applies if your vehicle meets both of the
following requirements:
•
•
Your vehicle is registered in California or other
states adopting California emission and
warranty regulations*.
Your vehicle is certified for sale in California as
indicated on the vehicle’s emission control
information label.
* Important: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New
Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont,
and Washington have California Emissions Warranty
coverage. (New York adopted California emission
standards, but not the California Emissions Warranty.
The Federal Emissions Control Warranty applies to
all non-PZEV vehicles in New York.)
18
California Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV) have
extended coverage on all emission related parts.
Important: California, Connecticut, Maine,
Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island,
and Vermont have PZEV Emission Warranty Coverage.
Your Rights and Obligations (For Vehicles
Subject to California Exhaust Emission
Standards)
The California Air Resources Board and General Motors
are pleased to explain the emission control system
warranty on your vehicle. In California, new motor
vehicles must be designed, built, and equipped to meet
the State’s stringent anti-smog standards. GM must
warrant the emission control system on your vehicle for
the periods of time and mileage listed provided there
has been no abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of
your vehicle. Your vehicle’s emission control system
may include parts such as the fuel injection system,
ignition system, catalytic converter, and engine
computer. Also included are hoses, belts, connectors,
and other emission related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, Saturn will repair
your vehicle at no cost to you including diagnosis,
parts, and labor.

− If your vehicle fails a smog check inspection,
Saturn will make all necessary repairs and
adjustments to ensure that your vehicle passes
the inspection. This is your Emission Control
System Performance Warranty.
− If any emission related part on your vehicle is
defective, Saturn will repair or replace it. This is
your Short-term Emission Defects Warranty.
•
•
For 7 years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first:
− If an emission related part listed in this booklet
specially noted with coverage for 7 years or
70,000 miles is defective, Saturn will repair
or replace it. This is your Long-term Emission

for California Low Emission Vehicle 2 (LEV2)
vehicles equipped with option code NUA:
− If an emission related part listed in this booklet
specially noted with 7 years/70,000 miles or
8 years/80,000 miles is defective, GM will repair or
replace it. This is your Long-term Emission Control
System Defect Warranty.
•
For 15 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes
first for a Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV):
− If any emission related part* listed in this booklet
is defective GM will repair or replace it. This is
your (PZEV) Emission Control System Defects
Warranty.
* PZEV Hybrid Batteries are covered for 10 years or
150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Any authorized Saturn retailer will, as necessary under
these warranties, replace, repair, or adjust to Saturn
specifications any genuine Saturn parts that affect
emissions.
The applicable warranty period shall begin on the date
the vehicle is delivered to the first retail purchaser
or, if the vehicle is first placed in service as a
demonstrator or company vehicle prior to sale at retail,
on the date the vehicle is placed in such service.
19
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities
Emission Warranty Parts List
As the vehicle owner, you are responsible for the
performance of the scheduled maintenance listed in
your owner manual. Saturn recommends that you retain
all maintenance receipts for your vehicle, but Saturn
cannot deny warranty coverage solely for the lack of
receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance
of all scheduled maintenance.
The emission parts listed here are covered under the
Emission Control System Warranty. The terms are
explained previously in this section under the “Federal
Emission Control System Warranty” and the “California
Emission Control System Warranty”.
You are responsible for presenting your vehicle to a
Saturn retailer or an Authorized Saturn Service Provider
as soon as a problem exists. The warranted repairs
should be completed in a reasonable amount of time,
not to exceed 30 days.
As the vehicle owner, you should also be aware that
Saturn may deny warranty coverage if your vehicle or a
part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper or
insufficient maintenance, or modifications not approved
by Saturn.
If you have any questions regarding your rights and
responsibilities under these warranties, you should
contact the Customer Assistance Center at
1-800-553-6000 or, in California, write to:
State of California Air Resources Board
Mobile Source Operations Division
P.O. Box 8001

Replacement Parts
Grommets
The emission control systems of your vehicle were
designed, built, and tested using genuine Saturn parts*
and the vehicle is certified as being in conformity
with applicable federal and California emission
requirements. Accordingly, it is recommended that
any replacement parts used for maintenance or
for the repair of emission control systems be new,
genuine Saturn parts.
Hoses
Housings
Mounting Hardware
Pipes
Pulleys
Sealing Devices
Springs
Tubes
Wiring and Relays
Parts specified in your maintenance schedule that
require scheduled replacement are covered up to their
first replacement interval or the applicable emission
warranty coverage period, whichever comes first.
If failure of one of these parts results in failure of another
part, both will be covered under the Emission Control
System Warranty.
For detailed information concerning specific parts
covered by these emission control systems warranties,
ask your retailer.
The warranty obligations are not dependent upon the
use of any particular brand of replacement parts.
The owner may elect to use non-genuine Saturn parts
for replacement purposes. Use of replacement parts
which are not of equivalent quality may impair the
effectiveness of emission control systems.
If other than new, genuine Saturn parts are used for
maintenance replacements or for the repair of parts
affecting emission control, the owner should assure
himself/herself that such parts are warranted by
their manufacturer to be equivalent to genuine Saturn
parts in performance and durability.
* “Genuine Saturn parts,” when used in conjunction with
Saturn vehicles means parts manufactured by or for
Saturn, designed for use on Saturn vehicles, and
distributed by any division or subsidiary of Saturn.
25
Maintenance and Repairs
Maintenance and repairs can be performed by any
qualified service outlet; however, warranty repairs must
be performed by an Authorized Saturn Retail Service
Facility or Authorized Saturn Service Provider, except in
an emergency situation when a warranted part or
an Authorized Saturn Retail Service Facility is not
reasonably available to the vehicle owner.
In an emergency, where an authorized retailer is not
reasonably available, repairs may be performed at any
available service establishment or by the owner,
using any replacement part. Saturn will consider
reimbursement for the expense incurred, including
diagnosis, not to exceed the manufacturer’s suggested
retail price for all warranted parts replaced and labor
charges based on Saturn’s recommended time
allowance for the warranty repair and the geographically
appropriate labor rate. A part not being available
within 10 days or a repair not being completed within
30 days constitutes an emergency. Retain receipts and
failed parts in order to receive compensation for
warranty repairs reimbursable due to an emergency.
26
If, in an emergency situation, it is necessary to have
repairs performed by other than a Saturn retailer
and you believe the repairs are covered by emission
warranties, take the replaced parts and your receipt to
a Saturn retailer for reimbursement consideration.
This applies to both the Federal Emission Defect
Warranty and Federal Emission Performance Warranty.
Receipts and records covering the performance of
regular maintenance or emergency repairs should be
retained in the event questions arise concerning
maintenance. These receipts and records should be
transferred to each subsequent owner. Saturn will
not deny warranty coverage solely on the absence of
maintenance records. However, Saturn may deny
a warranty claim if a failure to perform scheduled
maintenance resulted in the failure of a warranty part.
Claims Procedure
As with the other warranties covered in this booklet,
take your vehicle to any authorized Saturn retail facility
to obtain service under the emission warranty.
This should be done as soon as possible after failing
an EPA-approved I/M test or a California smog check
test, or at any time you suspect a defect in a part.
Those repairs qualifying under the warranty will
be performed by any Saturn retailer or Authorized
Saturn Service Provider at no charge. Repairs which do
not qualify will be charged to you. You will be notified
as to whether or not the repair qualifies under the
warranty within a reasonable time, not to exceed
30 days after receipt of the vehicle by the retailer or
Authorized Saturn Service Provider, or within the time
period required by local or state law.
The only exceptions would be if you request or agree to
an extension, or if a delay results from events beyond
the control of your retailer or Saturn. If you are not
so notified, Saturn will provide any required repairs at
no charge.
In the event a warranty matter is not handled to your
satisfaction, refer to the “Customer Satisfaction
Procedure” in this booklet under Owner Assistance
on page 28.

Emission Control System Warranty, you may contact

and resolve your questions, problems, or concerns.
STEP TWO: Contact the Saturn Customer
Assistance Center. Should you need additional
assistance after contacting your retailer call the Saturn
Customer Assistance Center at: 1-800-553-6000.
We encourage you to call the toll-free number in
order to give your inquiry prompt attention.
A Saturn Customer Assistance Center Team Member

or have changed your name or address, provide this
information to your nearest retail facility service
department or the customer assistance center.
Participation in Better Business Bureau

Program to enforce any additional rights you may have.
The BBB Autoline Program is an out of court program
administered by the Council of Better Business Bureaus
to settle automotive disputes regarding vehicle repairs or
the interpretation of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Although you may be required to resort to this informal
dispute resolution program prior to filing a court action,
use of the program is free of charge and your case will
generally be heard within 40 days. If you do not agree
with the decision given in your case, you may reject it and
proceed with any other venue for relief available to you.
You may contact the BBB Auto Line Program using the
toll-free telephone number or write them at the
following address:
