1998 Saturn S-Series SL1 4dr Sedan


Bought the car for 800 as is and only needed a muffler for a sticker. Didn't come with power steering but cause the car only weighed 2,300 lbs I didn't even need P/S! All the parts for it were cheap, plugs and wires cost me 30 bucks at most. Very easy to work on too! lots of room in the engine bay. Had to change the motor (might have over rev it.) Great on gas too! I got 36 MPG@70 mph! IT also handled great with the multi link suspension in the rear makes the back roads fun and with confidence! Sadly it was totaled in a crash but my friend and I walked away unharmed. By far most reliable and safest car out there!

Best Features

Plastic body panels so it wont rust! great on gas, Ice cold A/C and blistering hot Heat, cheap and easy to fix and Great handling. Also the fold down seats!

Worst Features

Better seats, any long distance drives left my back sore
