  • 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.

15 years and still going

Vehicle: 1993 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

Good little car. Rides well even after all these years. Had the brakes replaced a few times (once under warranty, alternator replaced twice but other than regular maintenance & oil changes haven't had much problem with it. Still gets good mileage. It's not the smoothest running car or the most powerful but it is a very economical and easy to drive car. Except for a few dings the body still looks good. I still drive it everyday but will soon give it to my son who needs an old economical car to drive back and forth to work. After 15 1/2 years I,m going to miss it.

This car was bought with 33,000 milesWe are the second owner,the saturn experience at the dealer has always been great.The saturn dealer takes care of its car owners and never takes advantage of them.This car has 4wheel disc brakes and traction control and 15"sport tires,this makes it hadle very well when pushed hard.the gas mileage has always been great,and is better when staying at 65mph or less.over the life of the car we have replaced 2 mufflers,6 sets of disc brake rotors,1 set of brake pads,1 altenator,1dome light,1 setplug wires,platinum plugs,2 coolant bottles(magnet sensor inside bottle was fault)and 3 egr valves covered by warranty.

Bought this to replace a well-used 1991 SL. With only 66K miles on it so far, things look real good. The interior is in tip-top shape. Can't beat the deal for fun go-to-work car that doesn't break the bank. Doesn't burn any oil!




Nice, but needs improvements

Vehicle: 1993 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

I have enjoyed the handling of the car, some road sounds, but not too bad. It would never fit a larger person, and if a taller person drives, the rear passinger is cramped. At 43K it went through a timing chain and now again at 79K. They claim the oil needs to be changed every 3K or 3 Months, not 91 days or 3001 miles and they mean it. Dirty oil plugs a tensioner on the chain causing it to fail. Yes you can see the engine and all parts, very well thought out. I would not purchace another one because of the poor timing chain design, but never had any other problems.
