Free Car Owners Manuals - Saturn Relay General Information

Free Car Owners Manuals - Saturn Relay logoThe Saturn Relay was the first and only minivan from the Saturn brand of American automaker General Motors. It was introduced for the 2005 model year, as well as was built alongside its sisters, the Buick Terraza, the Chevrolet Uplander, as well as the Pontiac Montana SV6 in Doraville, Georgia. The Relay was the first Saturn vehicle without polymer side paneling, as well as is also the first Saturn thats a rebadged Chevrolet or Pontiac.

The Relay was introduced with a 3.5 L LX9 V6 that generates 200 hp (149 kW) and 220 lb·ft (300 N·m) torque, going from 0-60 mph in the 9-second range seconds. For 2006, a 3.9 L LZ9 V6, with 240 hp (179 kW) and 240 ft·lbf (332 Nm) torque, was added as an option, which delivered faster acceleration and better response than the 3.5L engine. For 2007, the 3.5 L V6 was dropped, leaving the 3.9 L as the base engine. Consequently, the optional AWD method was also dropped, since it could not handle the torque of the 3.9 L engine. Unlike its siblings, the Relay didn't receive an optional flex-fuel engine for 2007. The Relay scored three “Good”s (the highest possible score) and two “acceptable”s (the second highest possible score) in IIHS crash tests. In terms of gas mileage, the Relay is rated at 19 miles per US gallon (12 L/100 km; 23 mpg-imp) city, 25 miles per US gallon (9.4 L/100 km; 30 mpg-imp) highway.

The Relay started at US$22,850. There were three available trim levels, 2FWD, 3FWD, as well as 3AWD. All Relays seat seven by folding/removable 2nd row captains chairs and a 50/50 third-row bench. The third-row bench folds flat but didn't fold entirely into the floor. OnStar assistance and a DVD rear entertainment method came standard on all Relays. A navigation method was optional on Relay 3s. Front side airbags were standard on 3s and optional for the 2. Second-row side airbags were optional on all models.
