Pros

OK cheap, reliable car.

Cons

bad piston/ engine design.

35

Saturn Sl2 — Poorly designed engine/ pistons. oil control ring clogs, and results in excessive burning of oil. Has lots of rattles and noises. Traction control is flaky. Not too bad to drive around tho. Fairly nimble, and corners well enough. Other than the burning oil, its been very reliable.

Gets From Point A To B Ok — Got 230K miles and not much repairs but they are starting with the transmission and timing chain. Other than that oil changes, tires and brakes. Does not have much getup and go. Don't like the green color. very reliable and runs good

I Love This Car... — I like my saturn beause it is not fast..lol so i wont get many speeding tickets if any at all lol! It was very cheap for me to own even though i got it from my parents!!! I love it cause it has lots of memories in it like crazy driving with Liisa and Jen and all my other friends! The parts are cheap and the labour isnt that bad. And i worked for Saturn so i pretty much know these cars like the back of my hand !!! :) Remember this car is 13 years old!!!!

Acceleration and top speed, sleeper

Cons

oil burner

I Like It But Wish I Had A Manual Transmission — Performance: Incredible acceleration for a 1.9 4-banger but needs stiffer handling Build Quality: Engine burns oil but car doesnt rust and is a good car to put a system in. (minimal rattling in the trunk ) Appearance: sleeper car Cost: low maintenance Fun Factor: Hell yeah its a fun car to drive

Reliability

Acceleration and potential

Don't Come Here Looking For Speed, But Its A Fun Car — For an economy car, its is really reliable and has surprised a few people. The twin cam motor is pretty quick, but not fast. It is ridiculously fun to drive and handles great. The paint is mint and the interior is clean and has power everything. I have done a few things: short ram intake, 16x7.5 5 spoke wheels and summer tires, full stereo and MTX sub, with a catback exhaust on the way. I know its not fast by any means, but it whips most civics and accords, and is a lot of fun.
