1996 Saturn S-Series SC2 2dr Coupe


Bought this car with about 160,000 miles on it for $900. Put about $1,500 into it since then (rebuilt motor due to lack of oil changes, not my fault!). This is my dad's car, but I drive it every so often. He commutes 80 miles a day, five days a week. We live in Michigan, so this car has been through it all! Absolutely FANTASTIC on gas! It handles great and accelerates pretty smoothly. 221,000 miles on it now, and plenty more to go! Starts up like brand new in 20º weather. Flip-up lights, defrost, A/C, power windows/locks still work! Highly recommend! Only cons: not too much interior room, cup holder location is annoying. Would drive to Florida and back! Who have proof that American cars last!

Best Features

Superb gas mileage and peppy engine. Front seats provide plenty of room. Handles great!

Worst Features

Speakers are cheap, some rattles from interior paneling and dashboard. It's a coupe, so I won't complain that back seats are cramped.
