    To Late For Its Time.. — maintenance you cant do from home. oil filter is paper element unlike regular oil filter on many cars today. transmission cant be checked as usual and few other things as well. most maintenance done at garage now. other than overall rating i do like the car for its fuel mileage from factory at 32 mpg. however today's mileage would be a tad less under optimal maintenance serving if you can afford it. many garages charge more for simple things now a day. ie:600.00 for spark plug changing for 3.0 dohc or dohv engine for thi car.

    Pros: fuel milage was 32mpg. probably tad less now its 14 yrs old.

    Cons: engine/transmisssion maintenance - done by garage as u cant maintain like other cars from home.

    Great Family Car Wsith Lots Of Space For Everything. — The luxury leather and wood trim make it special. Heated seats are very nice. Smooth ride is comfortable. Love the extra space in the wagon. Gas millage proved very good, especially for a 6 cylinder! Power windows are a definite plus. Stereo could be better.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's been a great family car. Lots of room for cargo. Heated seats are a pleasure and the leather is pure luxury! Very good acceleration.  Handles well in snow.

    Cons: We really need a third seat for additional passengers.

    Cons: Nothing

    Slow Ride, Take It Easy — Fun to drive, not the best car to be seen in, good performance, but it does take time to get up to speed with the 4 Cylinder engine, all and all, its a nice Stationwagon, holy cow...did i just say that?

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Pretty comfertable

    I'm Hoping Mine Is Just A Lemon And If You Get One You Have Much Better Luck! — I bought this car with v-6 and 144,000 miles. The only reason I bought a car with that many miles is that it was in excellent condition and I had owned an S-series for 2 1/2 years prior. Very clean inside and out and oil looked clean at 3,000 miles so I assumed it had received all needed maintenance and was well cared for. That was 14 months ago. To this point, I have spent more in repairs than I did for the car. Currently, it is in the shop for a broken coil pack causing a miss in the engine, a recurring heater problem (it doesn't work), an transmission issue (SERVICE with a wrench beside it), and the service engine light. While this car is very fun to drive, it has been very, very costly to maintain. It seems like when you fix something, 2 more things go wrong. In 14 months we have had very little trouble free time with this car. However, my wife loves it, so I guess we will go broke hanging onto it a while longer. Had to replace some weird stabilizer bar on the rear wheel when I got it aligned the first time (wheel was tilted and inside of tire was wearing). Timing belt, water pump, O2 sensor, EGR valve and other things have already had to be replaced on this car. I'd have to look at my receipts to list everything. And for as many squeks and rattles as it has, I wonder how it stays together. Still, a very fun car to drive. The absolute best we have gotten for gas mileage is just over 27 mpg, so there are plenty of cars that do better. My S-series gets 34 mpg, unless you are going 80 mph, then it drops to about 30.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: repair after repair after repair after repair after repair...

    My Saturn Ls2 3.0 V6 — Teh car is pretty good for make like Saturn.I thing people are underestimating the Saturns. Performance is great, the 3.0 V6 offers a lot of power, this car pills tires like crazy.The automatic transmission responds perfect. Build Quality is high, despite that I bought the car used, I only replaced the blower motor for the heating, noting else(Probably I'm lucky:)). The parts are way cheaper than the ones for my old car(Audi A4), which nowadays it is very important:) For cheap car, my Saturn has everything from leather seats to traction control-fully loaded with extras. This is was the S- class of Saturn. Definitely better gas millage than the Audi A4(despite that the engine of the Audi was smaller-2.8 V6). For the four mounts I have the car, no money were spent on maintenance(accept the Blower motor-$300). It is definitely a fun to drive if you like the pilling tires noise:)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Planty of Extras for a cheap car

    Cons: It is not a Maserati Quattroporte:) Just a saturn:)

    Brief Stats — Was a great car for the family when it was smaller - but with only seating for 5, a family of 6 with a dog just doesn't work, does it? I really liked the CD player - really good sound from the 4 speaker set-up. Minor issues with the interior trim - specifically the 'arm rests' on doors - the thinner plastic couldn't take my elbow too well, and it cracked under mild pressure

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fuel efficiency, Audio system, handling

    Cons: some interior trim issues

    The Worst And Most Unreliable Car I Have Ever Driven — This is the worst car anyone can buy. The doors are plastic, yea they might be dent resistant but they will break if somebody leans on it. The door handles on the inside break about as easy as a pencil. It eats through oil like it's its job. It eats through Trans fluid like no other. I have to change the oil every month, give or take, and I put the best oil in it too. I have to fill up the Trans with fluid about every month and a half, two months. The windows go off their track if somebody knocks on them too hard. My air conditioning broke a week after the warranty was over. My power steering pump broke four times since I’ve had the car. I got into an accident and messed up the whole front end of my ca and the air bags didn’t go off. It is a very unsafe car because there is a different problem with it every time I get the last one fixed also because it is plastic. Although I do have to say that it is good on gas and also a very fast car for being about as reliable as a matchbox toy car. Do not buy a Saturn! They are one of the worst cars you could buy.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: its for sale and i could get a new car

    Cons: you would be waisting your money

    Saturn — This is my car. I'm just writing what facebook suggests. The v6 accelerates quickly and smoothly. the braking sucks.... probably because i need new pads. it sqeaks a little near the rear end. i need a new tie rod. and new shocks & struts. not going to fix it though. new car coming. yes!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its fun

    Cons: its not enough for victor.
