  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SW2? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your SW2’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
