I'd Own Another One — I put only about 3 grand into thi car and it out performed more than expeced. I am glad I had this car. Too bad I made it fly in the air by about 4-5 feet...Still miss it. It only topped at about 158 though.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

This Is The Title Of This Review — The car has good pick up, and it'll likely put you in the back of your seat if you underestimate it. It corners well. It didn't need to many repairs for the most part, the engine seized at 230k due to the drain plug falling out, and though the engine was replaced free of charge by Penzoil (they botched the oil change), the rebuild engine just didn't match up in performance and reliability. The car looks good in my opinion. It gets good gas mileage and is good on repairs, and it's fun to drive.

94 Saturn — this car is a cheap beater that i drive on a daily basis to save miles on my mustang and save money on gas. it gets about 30-35 mpg on average, and sports an 85hp engine! its pretty slow, buts the name of the game to save gas. id rather sink the cash i save into my cobra.

Love This Car — I have a 1994 saturn SC2 that was in desperate need to a fix up. i rebuilt the car from the bottom up and made it exactly the same, just newer. and i love that car to death. it is extremley fun to drive, especially because its a stick with a stage 3 racing clutch. I bouth it for 200 bucks, and i wouldnt sell it for the world.

Cons

No Power

Old Rattly Saturn — This was my wife's car when we got married. So I really didn't have a say in the matter. It pushes 80 HP so you have to plan at least 3 weeks ahead to pass on a 2 lane road. The interior plastic rattles like crazy. So the radio has to be way up to cover the rattles. I can't wait for my Mazdaspeed 3

Purple Saturn's Life — It was a good little car. It wasn't the prettiest or the fastest, but it was a great A to B type of vehicle. I got it shy of 100,000 miles, and had if for five years and 50,000 miles more until I gave it to my brother, who still drives it pushing 200,000. It's not going to make your hair stand up in any category, but I'd drive it again.

With A Big Supercharger And Only 1900lbs It Was Quick — I pumped a lot of boost into that little thing and it put up with it till the clutch gave and the half shaft broke. Great little commuter.

Too small for a family of four, and it's just getting old...

My First Car... — Yes, I still have it... That's for all my high school friends out there who probably don't believe that I still have my first car that I spent my own $$$ on. So, yes I love it, it is amazing, pretty solid (even though the door is and has been falling apart) and finally yes, it IS gorgeous at least to me. So what if it's got some weird rumbling going on, and it rattles (catalytic converter gone bad), and it's pretty loud (original exhaust and muffler) especially since my husband ran over someone's bumper that fell off on the highway, and it's 'eyelids' are rusting, and the A/C doesn't work (who needs A/C in WI?)... the moonroof still works and it runs, so that's a big plus in my book. Not to mention, the gas mileage stays pretty low. Yes, it needs a lot of work... No, Joe doesn't want to do it... Yes, Joe wants to get rid of it... of course, No, I don't want to get rid of it... If there's anyone out there that's into charity auto repair let me know! But when it's all said and done, Yes I still love my little Saturn, we've been through a LOT together!
