I bought this Saturn SW2 used with 120,000 miles for $2K. It needed just a little maintenance (new spark plugs, air filter, replaced dislodged driver- side headlight assembly, some running rust (primed and painted that) and a wheel alignment). Got on the road and it runs like a dream. Despite a high idle (800 RPM) I can get 35 mpg on the highway. The exterior is excellent; my compliments to the only other owner that had this wagon. This is my fourth Saturn and I'm going to keep it as long as possible. GM made a mistake dropping this reliable brand.
Reliability, easy to maintain, decent cargo space, gas mileage, safety features. There are on-line shops that can help you maintain it since most GM dealerships don't carry Saturn parts anymore.
Seats; they could have been made better. Needed a more user-friendly interior. The high idle is evident in almost all Saturn four-bangers. That's it.
