1993 Saturn S-Series SC2 2dr Coupe


Review

I was looking for a fun car to drive, preferably a stick, (mid-life thing), not too expensive, low maintenance and good fuel mileage. Currently own two Saturns. Just purchased this 1993 SC2. Everything is stock. It is in outstanding condition, only 26,000 + original miles. It is a 5 speed stick, red, rear spoiler, with black cloth interior, 1.9 liter DOHC stock 4 cylinder 125 HP engine. It has power windows and door locks, ABS, AM/FM Cassette original Saturn sound system. New Dunlop 15 inch tires on the stock alloy wheels. Other than a few minor exterior scratches this car looks and drives like showroom new. Even have the original sticker when car was sold new. It is fun to drive!


Favorite Features

Styling, 5 speed stick, rear spoiler, cruise control, ABS. Above average handling, road feel, responsivness and cornering. Good driver and front passenger room. I am a bigger than average man but, am comfortable. Decent trunk size and back seats do fold down for additional cargo capacity.


Suggested Improvements

Seat belt auto shoulder with seperate lap belt. Small back seat.

1993 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my SL1 new in 1993. I had expected it to go 200K miles, but someone in an SUV ran a red and totaled it last week with 124K miles. The good news is that my daughter walked away with barely a scratch. The engine was great, but starting to use about 1 qt every 3000 miles. Suspension, exhaust and transmission were trouble free. Other mechanical components did not fare so well (water pump, alternator, radiator, engine mounts (twice)). Inside door panels come loose, dashboard cracked, and foam in drivers seat had to be replaced.


Favorite Features

Plastic side panels and Paint. After nearly 13 years, car still looked like new.


Suggested Improvements

Bucket seats uncomfortable for larger person (6'2", 220). Improve interior quality.
