300,000 miles, one clutch

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

Given the car by my Uncle in 2009 with 298,000 miles, and on the original clutch! Used it to commute to work since then, still going strong.

Great commuter car, saves $$$

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan

I bought my '94 Saturn used with a rebuilt engine, and it feels like new! Clutch is solid, every gear engages like a new Focus (I've had those, too). I got nearly 250 miles in the city on a half a tank of gas. It takes 50 miles just to come off FULL, and with the 5-speed I spend a lot of time in neutral to save gas. I LOVE it, and what's more, I love having a clean title and NO CAR PAYMENTS!




Everything breaks!

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan

I've had the SL1 sedan for almost a year now, got a great deal on it I thought at first. Within this one year The engine has flipped over (while being driven) that costed a lot of money, new hoses, new radiator mounts, new engine mounts. My breaks gave out on me (again, while being driven), turns out the ABS gave out. The E-break randomly engages while the car is moving. Driver window will not roll up all the way, weather striping on the wind shield is gone. Gas gauge doesn't work, odometer stopped working at 142,898. Don't buy. Ever. Plus, it's really, really small and low to the ground.




Keeps on going

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Great acceleration and smooth ride after all these years. Just done routine maintenance and still using original parts, except battery. Recently drove it loaded down cross- country and now I drive all over the Rockies with it in winter and summer. Good stability in heavy winds at high speed.

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SC2 2dr Coupe

I've had my 94 SC2 for almost three years now. I couldn't tell you how many owners its had but I do know that whoever owned it last didn't maintain it very well. When I bought it I had to have both front wheel bearings replaced. Last year we redid the low side of the motor due to a blown oil seal. All of that's fixed as well as a newer transmission. Despite all the work I've put into my Saturn, I love the car. I will definitely buy another one.




Near-indestructible little car.

Vehicle: 1994 Saturn S-Series SC2 2dr Coupe

Bought my '94 SC2 in 2000. It already had over 80k, and since then I've put a lot of hard miles on it. The odometer broke about 7 years ago. My best estimate is now 200-250k. With occasional repairs (clutch, alternator, starter, radiator), it's gone through ten years of abuse. I've gone way too long between oil changes, ignored warning lights for months, driven it on loose Florida sand and through mud, planted it nose-first in a ditch, and otherwise subjected it to youthful stupidity. It still looks great. It still runs. It still gets good mileage. But, sadly, it needs an expensive new timing chain, so I'm donating it to charity. Maybe someone else can still get some use out of it.
