Review of the 2002 Saturn S-Series

  • Few cars on the market go 11 years without a major redesign -- the S-Series shows us why.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Advanced airbag system, dealer sales and service experience, composite dent- and rust-resistant body panels.

  • Cons

    Poor seating position and comfort, flimsy interior materials, questionable build quality.

  • What's New for 2002

    New aluminum 15-inch wheels and four new exterior colors are the only notable changes for 2002.

Vehicle: 2002 Saturn S-Series SL2 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl 5M)

Probably the most reliable car ive ever had the pleasure of owning. Good on gas and great for all the road trips i take. If they still made these cars, i'd buy another.




Great little commuter

Vehicle: 2002 Saturn S-Series SC2 3dr Coupe (1.9L 4cyl 4A)

I bought my Saturn SC with 60,000 miles on the clock. 1 year and 15,000 miles later there has been absolutely no issues. Its solid and reliable with great fuel economy and decent acceleration. Its abit low for my taste but i absolutely recommend the saturn s-series after my year of ownership.
