A workhorse

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SC1 3dr Coupe

My Saturn SC1 3-door coupe has been a workhorse since I first purchased it over 10 years ago. In Texas, I used to drive back and forth to Florida, Alabama, Louisiana quite often and had no trouble. I then moved to Southern California and had to contend with the traffic here which has pushed it to its limits. I have over 130k miles, do regular preventative maintenance and have never had any major problems. I've had to replace the battery and tires a few times and just recently had a new water pump installed. Other than that, I love this car. I hope to push it up to the 250k mileage mark. When the time comes, I'm going to hate replacing this reliable vehicle. RIP Saturn.




Low maintenace and 40mpgs!

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SC1 3dr Coupe

I've put 103,000 miles on my Saturn since I bought it used in 2002. The only real "problem" I've had is the sunroof stopped working at 120,000 miles. With regular maintenace this car has travelled to all 4 corners of Ohio and back again with me and I've never had any electrical, mechanical, or body problems at all. Sometimes I think I have a miracle car. The original window sticker says 40mpg Highway and it's still getting that! About a year ago, I almost traded it in, but now everytime gas prices go up, I keep deciding to keep it till it dies....if that day ever comes!




She's always there for me

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SC1 3dr Coupe

I purchased this car after totaling my previous one. Although I wasn't thrilled at first; I wanted a Nissan, I have come to love my Saturn. I bought it 3 years ago and have put 85K on it. And the only things I have had to replace are some tires and a battery. I love the gas mileage, it has a great sound system for factory and it's incredibly reliable. I do wish the interior was in a little better shape, my headliner looks awful, but the paint and all the things still work. I was in a very tiny fender bender and my car looks like it was in a much more serious accident. The other car was fine. So, I wish it were made out of metal, not plastic. All in all, for the price, it's a great car!

I have never had any problems with my car! The dealership is great, never any hassles. I plan on buying another Saturn in the future.




Other companies do it better

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn S-Series SC1 3dr Coupe

I bought my SC1 new in 2000 because the insurance was low for a 19 year old male. I had been looking at a Mazda Protege or a Nissan Sentra and I am still torn over my decision. My Saturn has been completely reliable. I have had only few and minor mechanical problems, but the overall build quality of the car is low. The interior parts don't quite fit together right. The vinyl on the side of my seat is cracking, and now I have two lights inside of the dash that have gone out. Additionally, I have a 5 speed and the shifting is very strange. People who drive other 5 speeds have trouble driving the Saturn. I would think twice before buying another Saturn.
