Review of the 2000 Saturn S-Series

  • Few cars on the market go a decade without a major redesign -- for a reason.

  • Safety

    Dealer sales and service experience, composite dent- and rust-resistant body panels.

One of the most cost

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Have this car for 10 years, besides a recent intake manifold change, this car only needs basic maintenance. Very good at gas mileage. parts are easy to get and cheap. At 13 years old of this car, and at 120,000 miles I drove it in a 3000 mile cross country trip without a slight problem. The car drives a like a champ. Outside paint is of good quality. After a heavy rain, the car shines beautifully like it was new 13 years ago. Overall, very basic but extremely reliable car, very economically to own. This is the best car I've ever owned, and I have no doubt it will last 300,000 miles.




Great car

Never had problem with it. Very fuel efficient. I've put over 40k miles and stills run great and strong. Next car will be another Saturn. They made these cars to last.

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

It is a very nice car. Smooth ride, it has good acceleration and braking. Overall I like this car. It is my second Saturn that I have owned. They are very reliable and I have only had to replace the brakes on it since I got it about two years ago.




Oil burner

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

Very reliable car but started using oil at about 30,000 mi and at 80,000 was using 1qt every 800 miles. Engine is noisy. Except for the engine, the car would be a good buy.




I love my saturn!

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan

I have owned two Saturn SL series vehicles. The current one I have is a Loaded SL2 Sedan. I purched the SL2 because of my need for reliable transportation that is inexpensive to maintain. I put over 200,000 miles on my first SL2 from 1996 to 2000 and only performed the periodic preventative maintenance. My current SL2 had provided the same excellent service as the first. Also after renting a variety of cars during travel - Never a Saturn - I was never comfortble in any of the small cars that the company authorized. When I drove the saturn on long trips I was very confortable.
