    Optional traction control. Optional ABS. Composite dent- and rust-resistant side body panels.

    All models get reduced-force front airbags, and sedans and wagons get new seat fabrics. The SC2, SL2 and SW2 are equipped with new headrests, and the optional alarm system now has a programmable passive arming feature. On the mechanical side, structural upgrades to the engine blocks and transmission case housing are said to reduce noise and increase durability. Additionally, the automatic transmission's programming has been tweaked to reduce hunting on hills and improve shift quality. And Saturn says that revised shock absorbers on all cars provide a smoother ride. Restyled alloy wheels and plastic wheel covers round out the changes.

Good solid car

Vehicle: 1998 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

I have loved this car. The only true car repair was a motor mount, which was pretty cheap to replace. This is my first Saturn and I've been very impressed. It is a little small for a full family. Would love a few more inches in leg room.




Pros: reliability & exterior build

Vehicle: 1998 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

Very reliable vehicle, comfortable and easy to drive. I love that I don't have to worry about getting nicks in the door due to the exterior build which seems unlike other vehicles.

A solid, reliable, dependable car for the money! Great gas mileage. Saturn dealers seem to bend over backwards to make the customer happy. Loads of cargo storage with fold down rear seats. I brought home a twin bed inside this car!




My last saturn

Vehicle: 1998 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon

I purchased the Saturn SW1 new for my kids to use for University. The vehicle was expected to be reliale and if you listen to the advertisements an enjoyable experience. Almost from day 1 we had small issues with fit and finish. (Dome light, wind noise, tie down on seat material, rear wiper & washer (in the winter) to name a few. The dealer addressed the issues but there were just to many of them. The only problem that could not be addressed was the check engine soon light. The suggestion from the dealer IGNORE IT!!!
