17 years and going strong!

Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

I bought my 1995 SL (base model - no a/c or power anything!) in 1996 as a second owner, with 41,000 miles already on it. Paid under $10K. This car is still going strong. I now have 245,000 miles on it and in all these years have only done routine maintenance - no break-downs, no major fixes. It does drink oil, but come on -- it's at 245K! I've recently been test-driving a variety of sports cars (350Z, Z4, Miata MX-5, Audi TT) and, when I came back to my Saturn, I have to admit, while it's no sports car, it IS a fun, low, zippy car! Gas mileage is amazing - 43 MPG COMBINED in summer (35 in winter, and I live in Minnesota) and NO VISIBLE RUST. I bet I'll drive it another 100K at least.




15 years of saturn

Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

I've had this car since 1995. I've driven it to every state, except Alaska and Hawaii, lived out of it for months at a times- sometimes with my wife and dog- at with over 334,000 miles on it, the thing just won't die. I've been rear ended twice, done usual maintenance on my own, but original engine, compressor, manual transmission etc. I started replacing everything with performance parts after 200k because I was sure it would die by then, but now I'm not sure if it ever will.




Great little car

Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Purchased new in 1995 and have driven it ever since. 18 year-old son now driving it. It has 152k and we just took it on a thousand mile trip to the mountains with no problems. Few repairs include: alternator, door/window leaks, shifter cable - less than $800 in 13 years! Gets 37 mpg hwy. and 33 city. And costs $37/month to insure 18 year old! Has been the best car I've ever owned. I hope it will survive two teenage boys.




Ehh... not so bad

Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

First car I ever drove. In all honesty, for what this car is it's not too bad. Did all the regulars, radiator, water pump, alternator. No major problems yet(nock on wood), but at 160k miles I definetly have the bus route on hand. With a manual it's a little peppy, it's no rally car but it still supprises me at 100hp. Definitely don't get 40mpg, more like 30, but haven't had a tune up in God knows how long. Almost bulletproof, it made it through my abuse this long (no oil for weeks, left rotors on with bad break pads until there was a pinky size indent on the rotors, etc). Does burn a ton of oil though, but all and all, I would definitely buy a Saturn for my kid to abuse, but not 4 me




Worth the trouble?

Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Bought my Saturn in 1998 w/65K on it. Ran good for a while. Its way under powered, is sluggish when stopped with A/C on, and you can't pass anyone on the highway. Around 100K, had to start putting in a quart of oil every 1000 miles. Even with a great maint. record, engine blew at 118K. Replaced it with a used Saturn engine that had 55K. Have had to put a quart of oil in every 1000 miles and runs hotter than original engine. Interior is very basic plastic, and easy to break, even for kids. Seats covers and cushioning barely hanging on. Probably won't buy another Saturn again.




Beware of defect!! flawed engine

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Saturn released defective engine blocks that resulted from a flawed casting mold, and that may result in a cracked cylinder head if you are one of the unlucky ones. DO NOT BUY A SATURN FROM 1994-1996!! What's worse is that Saturn did not notify consumers of the defect until 3 years after the defect was discovered. They did come back and provide a warranty for the defect up to 100K miles, but this is not the carburetor we're talking about here; it's the heart and soul of the car . . . THE ENGINE!! My cylinder head cracked at 130K - I've heard from many others who have experienced the same problem. Run away!
