1996 Saturn S-Series SC2 2dr Coupe


I have a '96 SC2. It has about 145,000 miles on it and runs like it is new. The interior is a little small, especially when you try to pack people into the back seats, but for driving it is very confortable. It has great handling and hugs corners and is very fun, especially with performance mode on the transmission. It is very reliable, everything works, all I have to do is keep the oil changed. Overall, it is a great first car, gets 30mpg and is fun to drive.

Best Features

-Handling -Heater is very hot -Pop-up headlights -Engine sound -Small so easy to park -Styling

Worst Features

-Cheap, plastic interior -Can't fit cups in front cupholders when it's in park -Climate controls are akward sliders and are blocked by cups -Small back seat
