Saturn, Nothing Special

1998 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan


Review

When buying a Saturn, I was promised a diamond, instead, I got a cubic zirconia. Although the car hasn't had major problems, the car has its share of annoyances. The low fuel light broke, headliner fell down, dome light broke, engine pings like mad, headlights shake uncontrolably, plugs foul, among other things. After taking the car back to the dealer 13 times in the first 2 years, the dealer told me not to come back. Called several Saturn higher ups in the Houston area, all of which said I should fix my own car because I was mad that everytime I took my vehicle in, they managed to break something. Called Saturn Corporate, they said they had no control over the dealerships.

I will never buy another Saturn!

Review

We loved our first one so much (my wife rolled it 4x at 50mph, and barely got a scratch) that we bought another. It's been nothing but problematic. (Long story short)the engine seized completely, resulting in an engine replacement at 50k. It's noisy, runs rough, and has unpredictable fuel economy. All in all, I believe Saturn's quality control has gone downhill, fast!

Review

My wife has tried to drive this car into the ground (30,000 miles per year), but it keeps on ticking. We love this car. It's one of the best purchases we've ever made.

Review

I have had nothing wrong with this car since I bought it used in 2000. It gets great gas milage and is a comfortable ride. I am always getting compliments on it and every time I take it to the dealer for an oil change the wash my car and leave a carnation on my dashboard. I've never had that happen before! However, I had a Toyota Celica before I got my Saturn and Toyota's & Saturn's do not drive a like. It took me a while to get used to driving the Saturn, it doesn't drive as smoothly as a Toyota does.

I love this car. The paint always looks good and I don't have a dent. I have pushed this car to it's limits and it has never let me down.
