I purchased this car in April of 2008 for 3,000. As a single parent, I needed the most for my buck and that is what I have had. My car currently has 248,00 miles on it. It has never been in the shop for anything other than maintenance and my brother has been able to do that...brakes, change the oil and tires. There is absolutely no reason why this car should be running. I did not have the money so the oil was not changed regularly. Since purchasing this car, I have made many trips across NY state. I am currently looking for another car not because this one is not dependable but because the engine light came on. I am so hesitant to purchase another car, this car has been amazing!
This car has power probably too much since I have a lead foot. I use to live on the east side of NY state and this car could climb any hill without any hesitation. It has only been in the last 10,000 miles that she started to hesitate.
The material on ceiling is beginning to fall. The seats will no longer move but what more do you want the car has almost 250,000 miles on it.
I bought the car with 106000 miles on it from an auto repair shop. I have put an additional 75000 miles on the car with no major problems. In fact just wear and tear on the car.(brakes and hoses) Hey, the car is pushing 185000 miles. The main issue with the car is my AC. The unit needs to be rplaced. The heat works great but it does not pay to fix the ac. (Way to expensive.) My saturn is a work horse and I'am proud of the way the car has performed
The heat in the car is fantastic. Its been very cold in NY but the saturn has kept me warm and still drives great
After driving the car after a few months of purchase... The clutch went on the car... Costing me over $1000 to get fixed... After I got that fixed... The timing chain went which I have read has been the main problem in this year and model... And I had to get a new engine for it because it tore up the pistons and heads in the engine... In appearance inside and out, it's a Nice looking car... But with everything that I've had to put into it in the past year... It has been very frustrating... I would say to try and look for one with one that has decent mileage on it... As for me... I will never buy a Saturn again.
I spent over $10,000.00 in repair on my 2000 LS2 from March 2000 to October 2009. the engine and transmission are adequate but this car nickel and dimed me to death on sensors, steering, leaky battery, car doors that wont lock, catalytic converters. My car is worth 2000 but will cost 3200 to repair. Wont pass smog, second catalytic converter, so its gone. Should have bought the Accord I compared it against. Only buy this card if you want to get to know your mechanic better. Good riddance Saturn
I bought my 2000LW1 in Feb of 2004 it had 20,000 miles. I worked as a courier for a living and drove the car about 300 miles a day, 5 days a week in all weather conditions. This car has 321,000 miles on it!! The only thing that stopped it was hitting a deer last May, which totaled the car. It was all body damage so I just had the motor put in a LS1. After sitting for a year it fired right up and is still running strong. The only things I had to do to the car (before the deer) was oil changes, tires, and at 320,000 had to replace the fuel pump. This was a wonderful car, great gas mileage and fun to drive. I would buy another one for sure. Have to see how many miles the first engine will go.
