Great Little Car! — I bought this car from my cousin two years ago and have only done a oil change and tuneup and a new set of tires. It goes forever on a tank of gas. I recently did a 3800 mile trip and used 96 Gallons of gas. 39 to 40 MPG on the highway rocks. I get over 30 MPG in the city. The tiny engine doesnt really seem underpowered, it is respoonsive when passing and this car is fun to drive.

Reliable & cheap

Cons

nothing specific

A Life > 200,000 Miles And 15yrs In Not Uncommon — Old slow GM, eats oil (poor piston rings are a saturn trait), but it starts every time and if something should break (rare) its so easy to fix. Mileage is pretty good, and its still relatively fun to drive with a 5 speed manual.

Pros

This is a great little car.  Awesome for someone who drives any kind of commute to work, whether it be 5 miles or 30 miles it's great on gas, handles well and is really comfortable.  

Cons

It is a true compact car, if you like small vehicles this is the car for you, you can park it anywhere.

Great Buy! — Excellent condition for a '94, moonroof and leather scream luxury but at the price it's a steal. It's loaded with power everything, handles and runs great. In this economy gas is a precious commodity and this is definitely a gas saver.

Pros

cas and how low it is and also the 5 speed

Cons

mine is so old

35

Saturn Sc2 — the five speed gives the car a twist and allows you to have more fun since the car is lower to the ground i have over 216000 miles on it and i think its still running pretty strong for how it drives the gas mileage is great i get between 27 to 33 only thing is that im make up for it by buying a quart of old a week about over i like the car it would be nice to get with less miles

Pros

Cheap basic transport with enough fun factor to keep the new car bug at bay.

Cons

GM Build quality, age, lack of refinement.  

75

A Decent Daily Driver. — This was a fine little commuter car. Suprisingly spritely with the twin cam, but lacked refinement. Road holding was completely acceptable, and it cornered well enough, for a basic sedan. Not a sporty car, but it was involving enough (with a 5 speed) to keep the drive entertaining. Quality? I can't say it was great, but it wasn't awful. The car lacked refinement, was pretty loud and lacked many creature comforts even at that time. Looks? All things considered, not an unattractive car. Not beautiful, either though. Cost of ownership was completely acceptable, though I had one suspension repair (from a very low speed impact with a curb due to ice) that was ungodly expensive.

needs a new exhaust system

Sweet — not very powerful and needs a new exhaust system. i want to put in a new intake on it and put a new valve cover gasket on it. it has a sunroof and spoiler, so the insurence company considers it a sports car.

Meh — Bought for $400. Ran good, still runs actually my friend drives it! This one actually went over 125mph if you can believe it. Took me to california, but not the most comfortable. I wouldn't want to drive that far in it again.
