1998 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan


Grab one now! They are AMAZING cars. It was my first car, my uncle and I re-built the engine on it (had 210,000) and I have since put 40,000 on. I get un-believable gas milage and the car won't quit. Small parts here and there to fix...but they are so basic and easy to work on I've only taken it to the mechanic once (because I didn't have a hoist). Average 42/32 mpg. IT is actually really good in the snow, (front wheel drive/manual) I have passed guys in 4x4 spinning out and sliding while I putt on by with chains. If you are looking for a first car...get this one hands down no questions!

Best Features

-MPG -Reliability -Ease of Maitnance -doesn't quit...little engine that could! -Big trunk! I've put four surfboards and three guys all in the trunk/cabin area.

Worst Features

-Seats are a little uncomfortable -Can't top 93 :/ -Acceleration is...lacking at best.
