How to find Saturn paint codes

Similar to other models under the General Motors umbrella, you can find the paint code for your Saturn on the VIN tag. Depending on the model or year, this can be in a variety of places. Below you will find a list of the most common spots where the manufacturer's tag is located; however, it could also be elsewhere. To find it:

  • Go to the passenger side of the car and look in the glove box
  • Also, check the middle console
  • Go to the driver's side door, open it and look on the door jamb
  • Lastly, go to the trunk and open the lid. Look all the way along it

If you can't find the tag, give us a call at 971-770-2372, and our staff can help you identify it. Regardless of whether you drive an Asta or an SC, our team can help out. We are available from 8:00 am till 2:00 pm EST during the week and most Saturdays. Alternatively, send us your request at

Understanding Saturn paint codes

Saturn has the same paint code format as other popular makes like GMC and Ford, so they are made up of numbers and letters. A color may be represented by a variety of codes.

Example: WA812K

You may also see the code above represented as 88/ WA812K Medium Spiral Gray Metallic, and it is a popular color on Astra's and Aura's.

On the VIN tag, the paint code is relatively easy to spot as it is typically located next to the "BC/CC" heading and will be prefixed with a "U." You can find this at the bottom of the VIN sticker.

More about Saturn

Saturn was established in 1985 as a subsidiary of General Motors to compete with imports. Their S-Series was a hit and widely distributed throughout the U.S. and even launched in the Japanese domestic market. The Ion was a direct replacement for the older S-Series but was eventually replaced by the Astra, which was popular in Europe.

Unfortunately, Saturn is now defunct after a deal with Penske Automotive to sell the brand fell through in 2009. GM officially ended its remaining franchises by the end of 2010. However, you can still get parts through authorized providers, and the Saturn Aura lives on as it was eventually rebranded into the Chevrolet Captiva Sport.

We pride ourselves on quality products, competitive prices and outstanding customer satisfaction.
