Fairly Reliable Ride That Lasted 13 Yrs
By Kristen on
Vehicle
1998 Saturn S-Series SL2 4dr Sedan
Review
Purchased this car new in 9/1997, fully loaded with all the options. For the price, you really can't complain. Gets excellent gas mileage, ABS + Traction control allow the car to handle well in the snow, parts are cheap to replace/repair, and it's a compact, sporty ride. I upgraded the deck and speakers early on (something I highly recommend doing, given the subpar stock unit). Major problems with the car throughout the years related back to the engine - the SL models burn oil like crazy. I've been adding oil every couple of fill ups for at least 6-years. Transmission is going out now at 138K; upgrading to a nicer ride.
Favorite Features
Compact, sporty ride. I found it fun to drive. Great gas mileage. Fairly reliable for the price tag. Fits taller people (I'm 6'0) easily with the front bucket seats.
Suggested Improvements
Engine burns oil/revs RPMs in park (what I affectionately call it "trying to drive itself"). Sunroof has been replaced once, and still doesn't work. Cheap construction/parts, but you pay for what you get.
