    It does not surprise me that the Saturn split in half. I pray that the person or people in the car survived. My son had a Saturn and hit a tree sideways. The car did not split but it did disintegrate. They are very cheaply made cars and should be removed for the market!

      I totally agree Debbie. My wife also had one and the front in caved in accident with another car. She was told, “the car is designed to do that”. Best wishes for those involved.

        Yes, the car IS designed to do that. Would you rather it not absorb the impact and thus transfer all that energy to the driver? All cars are, in some way, are designed to collapse in certain areas on impact, especially the front end. It helps save peoples lives. Obviously, a car is not a slow moving tank and it can’t protect you from everything.
