  • What's New for 1993

    Saturn adds a wagon to the S-Series lineup. Passenger space is on par with the sedan, but there's almost 29 cubic feet of luggage space in back, making the wagon the most practical of the S-Series cars. The wagon comes in SW1 and SW2 models, which have the same equipment as the SL1 and SL2 sedans respectively. Also this year, a lower-cost coupe called the SC1 (equipped with the base engine) joins the mix; the existing model is renamed SC2. Although the same dimensionally as the SC2, the SC1 comes with exposed headlights rather than the stylish pop-up variety on the SC2. In other news, a driver-side airbag is now standard across the line, while the automatic transmission gets improved shift logic to reduce hunting on hills. S-Series cars optioned with the automatic and ABS now come with traction control as well. The SL2's suspension has been retuned to improve ride quality; it also gets a new front fascia and larger 195/60R15 tires. Foglights are optional on the SL2 and SW2. Inside, all models now have the same gauge design, and all except the base SL get new seat fabric.

It's okay

Vehicle: 1993 Saturn S-Series SW1 4dr Wagon

We've ended up not liking the car that much. It's clunky and has a really wide turning radius. The gas mileage in the city is pretty low: 20 mph maybe. We had to replace the transmission about a year ago as it was jumping into reverse with a real bang. On the other hand, now it feels as if it will just go and go. The body has remained in good shape and the cloth interior has held up. Because the resale value is so low, we've decided just to drive this one until we can't any more. At 10 years and still going strong, I suppose that's not bad.

Vehicle: 1993 Saturn S-Series SW1 4dr Wagon

Reliable and great gas mileage...I'm still getting 36 mpg after 225,000 miles! This model's biggest fault is that it is somewhat noisy and it had a bad guttering system for rain (water dumps into your lap when you open the door). I understand Saturn has fixed this problem.
