Smokin' savanna - my second

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl 5M)

I enjoy driving Savanna, as she has good pick up when needed, and a smooth ride. I feel safe with dual airbags and her responsiveness. She's given me few problems. With regular servicing, anything needing correction usually surfaces. The storage area makes loading and unloading easy. Too bad wagons have been dropped from production.




It's a car

Vehicle: 2001 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl 5M)

The Saturn is a transportation device, no more, no less. Mine has presented no out-of-the-ordinary problems, and so has been a good experience in that regard, but it is dishwater dull in character. Complaints? The front seats are too low, you "fall" into the car and have to climb out. Praise? It's a handy small wagon, which is a dying breed and why I selected it.
