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.
I love the flip up headlights, the simplicity of the cabin and instrument cluster, nothing fancy, basic, functional and clean. The electric fan switch instead of vacuum controlled like most GM vehicles was a nice touch.
Depending on what the car comes with I almost always put in a new stereo. The location of the cup holders isn't the best (In the back) however you get used to it. Not the most headroom for taller people but the multiple seat adjustments make up for that.
