Saturn ASTRA in Arkansas, United States
Date Odometer
(in miles)
Cost Problem/Repair Description
Mar 2008 2000    
9000 0 Check engine light on, fuel system vapor leak. Light was reset. Told that parts would be replaced if light comes on again. 
14000 0 A/C not cooling properly. Was low on refrigerant. Recharged. No leak found. A/C seems to still not be cooling properly, but worked fine during dealer diagnosis. 
15000 0 At the last visit the diagnosis showed the AC was fine, but they ordered parts anyway. At this trip they found the compressor was bad, and replaced it along with the expansion valve. 
35000 0 Replaced fuel filler neck and gas cap due to poor design. Faulty oxygen sensor, could not remove due to crossthreading at factory, manifold assembly had to be replaced. Engine light came back on, will go back in shop, so repair outcome is pending. Shop said computer needed to be reset because of oxygen sensor replacement. Engine light came back on after reset. Fuel pump failed pressure test and replaced. No problems or check engine light since. 
66000 55 Got a check engine light, code indicated the evaporative emissions purge valve was bad. I got this code several months ago, I reset it, but since it came back on again I replaced the part. Got the part for $55 and put it in myself.
