Saturn cars are made to satisfy customer demands. Inspired with their simple goal of putting people first, Saturn has designed vehicles that are distinct, powerful and innovative. Though Saturn is among the babies in terms of industry experience, it has already earned positive reputation and at the same time gaining loyal customers. Launched by General Motors in 1990, Saturn cars are aimed to be the competitor of the flourishing Japanese small-car imports in the United States market. The first Saturn cars are assembled in Spring Hill, Tennessee using the Z-body platform and the 1.9L Saturn I4 engine. From this dedicated platform and dedicated engine sprout the three Saturn models in three various body styles — the SC, SL and SW.
Known for its innovativeness, Saturn cars were outfitted with dent-resistant plastic body panels. Also, Saturn has been renowned and well-praised in the industry for its environmentally-conscious production processes. For couple of years, Saturn kept its vehicle design mostly unchanged. It was only in year 2000 when Saturn cars received the first major change, with the introduction of Saturn L-Series midsize sedan. Sharing with Opel Vectra's engine and GM Epsilon platform, this new Saturn model didn't come with plastic body panels. At present, Saturn vehicles share GM's Delta and Theta platforms and the Ecotec engine. Aside from the Springhill assembly plant, Saturn models are now assembled in various GM plant.
Though there are lots of emerging giants in the automotive industry, Saturn manages to build a sound reputation for superior vehicle lines that provide one-of-a-kind customer satisfaction. Among the factors that help Saturn in making their way to the top are the high quality Saturn parts used in creating every Saturn automobile. These Saturn parts are products of the company's innovativeness and dedication in building cars with powerful designs.
Among the car parts that contribute in giving each and every Saturn vehicle a practical yet superb design is the header panel. It is the part where the headlights, grille and some other parts and accessories are attached. You may never hear the header panel from a mechanic's mouth if you're consulting him about custom jobs for your Saturn. It is because Saturn header panel should always be precise to OEM standards and specifications. Your Saturn header panel has its own importance in your entire vehicle assembly. It wouldn't be place in the utmost front of the car if it doesn't have a task to perform there.
