I have really enjoyed my little Saturn. I bought it with 200,000 miles on it and 5,000 miles later, it still runs strong. I used to have a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird, and this is tons better then the Pontiac was. It was definitely worth the $650 that I payed for it.

I bought this car in the fall of 2002
strictly for transport back and forth
to work 50 miles each way. seeming the
gas in my new zr2 was casting a mint
just to get to work. i was a little
nervous buying a car with 173k, but i
checked the car out and it runs
outstanding!! No knock pings nothing. i
have put more tha 10k on this car in
the last 6 months and have nothing but
great things to say about this little

I bought my first new car, a 1991
Saturn base SL with A/C and a tape
player for $9,300. I bought a
warranty. What a waste-I never once
used it. Over the life of the car I
had replaced 2 windshields, water pump,
alternator, radiator and A/C Condenser,
and the master brake cylinder. Over
185,000 happy miles and a lot of
Chicago driving with lots of road salt -
no doubt contributing to the premature
wear of the radiator and A/C
condenser. I never leaked any oil nor
did it ever need a clutch replaced!
I'm sure it's out there
somewhere still running strong.....
General Motors launches a new division called Saturn, billed as "a different kind of car company." Intended to attract import economy car buyers, Saturn is the first automaker to use no-haggle pricing at its dealerships. The first cars to take the Saturn name will be the S-Series economy sedan and coupe. Sedans will be sold in SL, SL1, SL2 versions, while the coupe will be offered in a single SC trim level. The SL and SL1 are powered by a weak 85-horsepower four-cylinder and have black bumpers. The SL2 and SC do much better, as they get a twin-cam version of that engine good for 124 hp and have body-color bumpers. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all models; a four-speed automatic and ABS are optional. All S-Series cars have polymer door and quarter panels, sparing them from dents and rust.
