I LOVE My Saturn

1996 Saturn S-Series SL2 4dr Sedan


Bought this car used in 2002 with 60k miles. I kept up with routing maintenance. Repairs were consistent with normal wear and tear and never anything major.
Had 185K miles on the car last week when a lady cut me off and my car was totaled and I am heart broken but my little car protected us from receiving serious injuries. It did leak oil as is common with this model because of the valve cover gasket.
I still got almost 40 mpg on highway and 30 mpg city. This is the best car I ever owned in 40 years of car ownership.
My little Saturn did die a noble death.
I am looking for another used Saturn and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable economical auto.

Best Features

The manual transmission provided great gas mileage.
