Wow my Saturn is 7 years old now!
« on: March 14, 2015, 10:03:09 AM »
I always wanted an U.S. car and so I bought a Saturn Sky / Opel GT in 2008.
I have been pretty unhappy with the German brands like Audi, Volkswagon, Opel etc.

Holly s.... my new Audi always had problems with the engine, electric or rust  and needed to be repaired most of the time. :banghead:
Okay my Saturn had a few poblems but nothing to worry about and I've never had a better customer service than the GM one. :D

I drove my German cars for only 3 years each and I hated them. :gaah:

So I wanted to post some pictures of my beauty, which is still in a pretty good condition (37k miles). :devil:

Also a big thank you to everyone here in the forum for the awesome support!  :urock:

The car looks real nice, your painter did a good job repairing the damage that was done to it.

I hope to see this car in person some day.

Happy 7th anniversary !  :thumbs: Are black and silver the most  popular colors for cars in Europe ? Most of the articles I read in my car magazines that feature European cars are those colors .

Yup, the most popular colors are black and silver.

Most owners of silver cars are elder citizens. :devil:

Because they have more experience.

My previous car was black and I promised to myself I won't buy another black car, when I arrived in Germany at the dealership they had all colors aligned, I went again with black and I was doomed again in a very dusty and dirty country and everything is easy visible on a black car.

I stand to what I was saying ... she has more experience than us ...
GJ: To tell her what? Be more specific with a non-native english speaker.

Kelu-

I was alluding to you and Shiny having shared some "experiences" that perhaps Mmmmm would not want you to share with another woman (or man).  It was a poor attempt at humor that does not translate well in to Hungarian.
