1998 Saturn S-Series SW1 4dr Wagon


Fine the interior is kind of cheap looking, but I didn't buy this car in 1998 to compete with a BMW interior. I bought it because a tall person can drive in it (I'm 6"2"), the great gas mpg (I still get 38 highway- beat that in 2007) and there is a lot of storage room with the seat folded down. Get a tape measure and look. It beats the Forester and other small SUV's. The repairs have been extremely small. I replaced the fuel injector and that was the biggest repair. The acceleration is not great, but a good deal of the time the traffic on Long Island is a parking lot. 0 to 60 is not important when the road only goes 20. This is a simple car and cheap to own and repair.

Best Features

A tall person can drive in it. Great gas mileage. Very few repairs.

Worst Features

At night you get some flaring on the windshield from on coming cars, keep the window clean to help. Take breaks on long drives, the seats can be tiring.
