Pros

Torque in 2nd gear

Cons

Leaking doors

55

To Reach For A Caddilac One Must Start Somewhere With Government Motors. — It's been stalling and the doors leak. The fuel filter has probably never been replaced. Acceleration will give me rubber in 2nd gear. Have seen others with spoilers and Glad the front and rear facias are finished. Cost on mileage sure isn't filling up for $94.

Good on gas, cheap to fix.

Cons

It's old, and beat up.

'93 Saturn Sl2 Is A Nice Commuter Car. — It's a nice 4 cylinder get around car. I personally don't recommend mine for extended driving, but as a commuter car it's okay. Easy to maintain, cheap parts, easy repair (if doing it yourself), good first car. Wish I paid a little less for it, but otherwise I'm happy with my car.

Pros

Like the energizer bunny. Keeps on going and going and going

Cons

The interior just didn't hold up.

35

Awesome Car. — I have over 250k on it now. Only big replacement was the tranny. I switched it out from a wrecked one. Its still movin'. My 21 year old used it while in school. He even raced it on the 1/4 mile, stock. My 18 year old has it now.

Pros

Fuel economy. Good handling. Reliable.

Cons

Looks. Age.

45

It Is The Best Everyday Vehicle I've Had. Worth Mentioning. — Excellent engineering. Cheap parts. I replaced the water pump on it in just a couple hours with little effort. Comfortable. It wont impress but it will definitely take you anywhere without having to worry about gas prices. The 1.9 liter DOHC delivers decent power to the front and handling couldn't be better. I've seen mouths open with disbelief in the rearview when they cant catch up.

Pros

Solid but comfortable suspention... almost sporty.  Doors don't dent.

Cons

Motor, cheap build, bad tranny, would overheat.

45

A Lot Of Personality... Not A Lote Of Anything Else. — I liked this little saturn but everything about it was cheap. By the time it got into my hands it had plenty of issues. It would overheat if it sat at idle (or ran below 20mph on a hot day), it burned oil, and the transmission would violently slam into gears once the revs got high enough. It handled well and was kind of fun in winter, but it was lack-luster in nearly every arena. It is now sitting behind a shed at my parents house. It still runs (even after being flooded once by my sister) but has FAR too many issues to be a daily driver.

The Best Car I Ever Owned — I loved this car. Apart from the body breaking because it is plastic I LOVE the plastic body .. NO RUST. And the engine was great. Got the car for $350 and had it for years. Never died or had a problem except for alternator!
