2nd Worst Car I've ever owned !
By saturnh8ter on
2000 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon
This car is a lousy vehicle.
It is not the worst car I have ever owned (I had a 74 Pinto stationwagon!) but this one is a close second.
Bought car used at 90k miles after reading all the glowing reviews about the car and gave it to my wife.
Three months later the engine lost oil pressure and had to be replaced.
Now after 30k on a Saturn remanufactured motor, the head gasket is leaking.
The auto trans sometimes has a hard time finding reverse, the fit and finish of the car is horrible, everything seems cheap!
It is hard to get in and out of; I like to tell people it has all of the
bad traits of a sportscar with none of the fun of driving one.
No wonder Saturn went out of business ! !
The gas mileage is pretty good, 40+mpg on a highway trip.
