2000 Saturn S-Series SC1 3dr Coupe


I bought my SC1 new in 2000 because the
insurance was low for a 19 year old
male. I had been looking at a Mazda
Protege or a Nissan Sentra and I am
still torn over my decision. My Saturn
has been completely reliable. I have
had only few and minor mechanical
problems, but the overall build quality
of the car is low. The interior parts
don't quite fit together right. The
vinyl on the side of my seat is
cracking, and now I have two lights
inside of the dash that have gone out.
Additionally, I have a 5 speed and the
shifting is very strange. People who
drive other 5 speeds have trouble
driving the Saturn. I would think twice
before buying another Saturn.
