I was surprised that there was a forum for Redline owners. Boy do we have a lot to discuss. A little bio first. We currently have 5 Saturn's in my household. 2 03 EFX Ions, 2 02 SC2 ( 1 EFX ) and of course my new baby 04 Silver w/all option's except XM and Onstar. All of our cars can be seen on Saturnfans.com site under username of course Barry. Now about my Redline. Despite all the bad press, I wanted to see if Saturn could come thru and produce a out of the box high performance car. With my past experience with Saturn I was sure I was making the right choice. I Did!. The car exceeded my expectation's. I at this point have 1600 miles and have "no complaints". The rev limiter is there for a reason. I have noticed that at first the limiter kicked in early in first gear and still does but in 2nd gear I have not noticed it kickicking in untill into the redline. The senior tech at the dealership advised thet he thought the the rev limiter would gradually be elavated in all the gears except 1st after about 1500 miles. He was right. My fuel economy has improved as well. Without backing off the pedal it has gone from 20-21 MPG to 23-24 MPG. I would be surprised if it improved beyond this point. But who knows? Saturn is full of surprises. We are "THE SATURN fAMILY". STAY TUNED FOR MORE POST'S.
