1999 Saturn S-Series SW2 4dr Wagon


I just purchased this SW2. It only has 64000 miles, but I anticipate putting many more on it. I have a 1993 Saturn SL1 with almost 240000 miles (original engine and trans). The only things I've replaced are 2 tensioner pulleys, 2 alternators, 1 water pump just recently and front wheel bearings at 190000 miles. I expect to get the same reliability from this car as well considering the only difference mechanically is the twin cam engine (the SL1 is a single cam). You cannot find a better car that gets such good gas mileage at a better price (30- 36mpg regular driving and 44mpg best ever on a road trip on the SL1). If you find one, BUY IT! I only paid $5200 with a 3,000 mi./3 month warranty.

Best Features

Reliability, gas mileage, affordability

Worst Features

The new Saturn's with the new 2.2 liter engines are not proven yet and they won't get as good gas mileage as the no longer available S-series cars. The only improvement needed is to bring the S-series back.
