Auto Zone, Checker, Pep Boys, NAPA or any other reputable auto parts dealer will sell the appropriate brakes for your Saturn. Note that according to DOT regulations it is illegal to sell any brake or suspension parts that are of inferior quality to the OEM parts. You're actually quite safe if you buy brake parts from a reputable supplier.

Answer

There are different quality of brake pads available that exceed OEM specs. Some are asbestos free, some are more aggressive resulting in shorter braking disances but worse rotor wear. Some are cheap, some make noise, some include anti-rattle clips, some don't. I have found Bendix to be pretty decent myself. I wouldn't worry a lot about wear into the rotors as they usually need to be changed at the time of the pads anyway. On my vehicles, I never turn or machine them. The shorter the braking distance the better. In short a customer asked a particular in the shop about the worst case scenario. He replied " You went too far when braking, hit a school bus full of kids and had your name plastered in the morning papers".

It is possible for the brakes to lock up on a 2000 Chevy Venture when in reverse because the brakes are not working properly. Perhaps the brake pads need to be changed.
