2000 Saturn S-Series SC2 3dr Coupe

Review

Got the SC2 in 2004 with 76k miles. Have put on hard highway and around town miles (I'm not easy on cars) up to 122k now. Very reliable starting and driving, not so much for interior, fit, finish, peripheral engine parts, etc. Have needed to replace coolant temp sensor, fuel pump, automatic trans speed sensor, everything else routine. Engine burns oil slowly (have heard this is a Saturn problem) and loses coolant during cold months. Terrible on snow and ice due to very light weight. Nearly unusable rear seats, uncomfortable front. Everything shakes at highway speeds (also seems to be common on this model), loud, cheap interior. Great gas mileage, decent looks, easy to drive, low power

Favorite Features

Gas mileage! Easy to drive, no-dent exterior panels, third door makes back seat entry more reasonable. Overall, a fairly good cheap commuter car

Suggested Improvements

Improved quality interior, better ergonomics, seats, noise dampening, etc. More power for hills and highway speeds. All this would also make it a more expensive car, thus defeating the purpose of this model.
