ReviewLOVE this car. Fondly referred to as our "mighty 4-cylinder." This has get-up and go when we need it. Comfy to drive cross-country and with great mpg. Had it outfitted with hitch to pull small uhaul(4x8) trailer. Anything bigger greatly affects handling. Don't ever slide into a rubber-necking a Ford Expedition on an icy hill though, as the higher bumper literally peels the hood up into a crumpled heap even when impact isn't enough to set off air bags. For this reason it's rated a "10" by insurance co.s (the lower the #-cheaper ins). Traction control great. These saturns are prone to top motor mount failure which causes cabin vibration at idle. (cost to fix-$150.)
Best FeaturesSW2 looks MUCH better than the ugly 6-cyl wagons Saturn came out with in 2000 or the competitor's ugly Taurus/sable wagon of same year. Traction control nice.
Worst Featuresmotor mounts a failure point from model to model. Interior dash lights tend to flicker. Suspension not made for commutes that include gravel roads. Great commuter/family pod
