Only so-so

Review

Uninspired styling, cheap interior materials, and less than optimal comfort seriously hurt the overall rating for this car. I've owned it for 9 years now and the interior has suffered some truely annoying degradation. The headliner seems to be made from highly degradeable material that simply turns to dust when touched, buttons and controls creak when pushed, handles over the rear windows are falling off on their own, stick shift linkage fell apart and is now held together with zip ties-they want $300 for an entire shift cable set when the part that broke is a twenty-five cent plastic bushing. Despite all that is wrong with this car, the thing runs and drives like brand new. It will not die.

Review

I love this little car. This was my first car, my parents bought it from some friends with about 25k on it in about '01. I'm up to 101k right now and the only thing I've really had to replace was a cooling fan, brakes once and a few tires. I'm pretty rough on it and have put it through the ringer often forget to check my fluids nearly running out of oil & trans fluid one one occasion but it hasn't given up on me! The interior rattles sometimes but it's a small price to pay for something so reliable.

Review

My 1998 Saturn SL1 has been a great car! I commute 50 miles one way to work 5 days a week, and my car currently has 215,000 miles on it. It has endured a few trips to Las Vegas and other vacation spots. Over the years we have put less than $1000 in it for repairs (other than brakes, tires, etc.). I love this car and would (and have) recommended Saturn to my friends and family. I'm hoping to get two more years out of this car before I have to buy another, so far so good.

Review

This was the smartest car purchase I ever made, and I've bought a lot of cars over the years. From a viewpoint of value, reliability, and service, I am totally satified. No, it isn't a sexy car and it isn't a luxury car, but it is an excellent, reliable, and practical car.

Grab it if you can

Review

Fine the interior is kind of cheap looking, but I didn't buy this car in 1998 to compete with a BMW interior. I bought it because a tall person can drive in it (I'm 6"2"), the great gas mpg (I still get 38 highway- beat that in 2007) and there is a lot of storage room with the seat folded down. Get a tape measure and look. It beats the Forester and other small SUV's. The repairs have been extremely small. I replaced the fuel injector and that was the biggest repair. The acceleration is not great, but a good deal of the time the traffic on Long Island is a parking lot. 0 to 60 is not important when the road only goes 20. This is a simple car and cheap to own and repair.

Love it

Review

I bought my Saturn used with 48k miles. When I totaled it this past Nov it had 278k miles on it. I never had to do any repairs aside from routine maintenance until the past couple of years. I've only replaced the starter and axle (probably due to the many accidents I've had it in). It did have a slow oil leak, but with 278k miles, that's nothing. Also one of the head lights was prone to getting water in it during heavy rain. I loved this Saturn and hated to part with it. I am not sure about the automatic models, but I'll swear by a manual Saturn.

Review

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.

This car rocks! I love to drive it! Easy to steer and drive, even in tight spaces. It is just one of those cars that forms around you, and it seems to require no effort to drive it. It seems to drive itself. It's simply a fantastic car.
