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.

Review

Purchased from my sister in 03 with 77k on it. She drove it 3 yrs in Romania, 3yrs in England, and 2 years in Greece. I drive it 4000 miles a month and it's been great. Odometer broke at 243,00 miles and transmission finally failed at 250,000. Replaced Radiator at 150,000 and serpentine belt tensioner pully at 220,000. Desert temperatures are extreme in AZ and AC's never failed.


Favorite Features

Still cheaper than a new car and current mpg is 30 city, 38 highway. Could be the synthetic blend oil helps alot. Roomy enough enough to store a 12 ft inflatable boat and all the gear. Solidly built and runs smooth.Wish I could find a small wagon like that today.


Suggested Improvements

Clear coat on hood has failed twice and am unsure why as this is the only area that the original paint has failed. Also, trying to change the license plate light bulbs inside the rear panel was extremely difficult.

Review

Bought this car used in 1996 (nearly 13 years ago)with 18,000 miles on it. It is easily the most dependable car I have ever owned. Replaced catalytic converter and alternator only once, no other major issues with regular maintenance done. Automatic transmission has been flawless ever since, and the engine is still smooth and strong as ever. It is just a great, practical car. Seeing many of these still on the road in 2009 is a testament to it's reliability.


Favorite Features

Wagon back is practical and with back seats down there is plenty of cargo room. Plastic body panels have kept the car in amazing shape. Controls are simple and intuitive.


Suggested Improvements

Well, Saturn has come a long way since 1994. The headliner is drooping and some of the interior plastic is loose and rattling but if they still made this car today as it was in 1994 I would buy it all over again just for it's reliability, practicality, and simplicity.

Review

I have owned this car for almost 6 years having bought it used with 61000 miles on it. Other than installing a CD player and doing regular maintenance, the car has given me flawless service. It now has 186000 miles on it, still runs and starts every morning. I'm now going to replace it as it is getting long in the tooth. If you are in the market for a used vehicle and can find one with under 100000 miles on it, you will probably get a godd 3 to 5 years of service out of it. Cheap and reliable transportation. Not as spiffy as the newer models, but for the practically minded, a great choice.


Favorite Features

5 speed and fuel economy, still gets better than 30MPG


Suggested Improvements

Well, it's been replaced, so not sure this is relevant, but there are no cup holders and the heater controls are way to far down making you take your eyes off the road to make an adjustment.

Review

I bought this car in 99. I had the dealership replace the clutch before purchasing, since it was slipping during the test drive. In a little over 5 years I've replaced an alternator, iginition switch, and a radiator last summer. I've got the dual overhead cam engine which I highly recommend for performance reasons. Great gas mileage and reliability.


Favorite Features

Responsive acceleration,reliability, and the handling is fair for a station wagon.


Suggested Improvements

The seats need to be on some kind of platform or riser so you don't feel like you're climbing down and up when entering and exiting the car.
