I have the plain jane SL. 2001 model. The only option was A/C, which is needed in the south. Dealer sales and service were and are top notch, with an absolutely "no hassles" policy, even for warranty complaints. One defect couldn't be duplicated at first, then a second tech saw that a key part wasn't even installed at the factory. At least they owned up to their own mistake. Quite refreshing for once. I didn't expect much from it, so I guess I can't be too disappointed.
Somewhat competitive price, but love the no hassles treatment of customers.
Could Saturn at least think about making auto transmission an extra cost option on the SL?
