1996 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan Review
Sweet engine sound, plastic everywhere, top of the line leather
it was a saturn!
White Saturn — This was my first car. It was my Dad's for 4 or 5 years and then I owned it until it hit the 10 year mark and my parents decided to sell it while I was gone. It was definitely a Saturn and even though it in wasn't the sweetest looking/performing car I loved it! Some of the greatest features were- plastic doors, 4 cylinder engine that sounded bigger than it really was, leather seats, and great engine response and handling. It will forever be one of my favorite cars (mostly because it was my first).
1996 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SW1 Wagon Review
Now that it is my first hybrid, it's really prety peppy, gets 47 miles to the gallon and I expect to top that soon.
Some deer bounced off the hood and dented it. It probably should have been undercoated.
.it's Still Going, And Now It's A Hybrid! — Beware of plastic cars, check the frame before you buy one of these This was from a used car dealer, and the frame was rotted. But, I have a great welder that came over and fixed it up. Hugo has plenty of room, I think we like it.
1996 Saturn S-Series 2 Dr SC2 Coupe Review
Great gas mileage. Sporty, but not too fast (good for irresponsible teenage drivers). Sleek line. Never EVER had any engine, transmission, electric, or braking problems.
Drinks oil like a Scott through booze.
Get This For Your 16/17 Year Old. — This was my first car, and it served its purpose well enough. It's a four-banger, and it gets roughly 35 solid MPG. I've never had ANY problems with it. Never once had to tear it down and fix something. Served for 3 good years, until I wrecked it :-(.

Reliable And Efficient
This was my first financed car. I was always happy with it, and it never left me stranded anywhere. I like the look of it, as it's an economical car, yet has a sporty look. It doesn't accelerate as qu... Read More

Overall Nice Car!
Consistently gets around 28 MPG. Really comfortable car for the smaller driver. The back seats are especially cramped for a bigger person. The third door makes getting things out of the back quite eas... Read More
The Best I Have Ever Owned!

Good Family Car, Great Gas Mileage
This is a great day-to-day car, for any sort of commuting or errand-running. Great for road trips, as it has good storage and fantastic mpg on the highway. The lack of power-steering is a bit cumber... Read More
