I bought my 98 Saturn SL2 5 speed manual new in 1998 and I can't believe after 323,000 miles that it is still going strong.
Yes I have had to replace many things, but never anything major like a transmission.
It is now burning oil but you would expect that at this point.
It has been great not having a car payment for the last 8 years.
If you want a basic car that gets you from point A to point B this would be the car.
I am just disapointed that GM discontinued the Saturn.
I will be sad to see my Saturn go when the time comes.
