That's hard to answer. It depends the maintenance history on the vehicle and mileage on it and driving habits of previous owners

My advice would be forget about it. Saturn's were a disaster and are no longer being made. GM stopped all production of everything Saturn in October of 2009. You can actually read some of the issues Saturn car owners have on this site Don't believe a word from the salesman, they just want to off it. Good luck


A Saturn starts falling apart when it rolls off the assembly line, but there is NO MORE assembly line for Saturn. That should tell you everything you need to know. In other words: DON'T BUY IT!!! If you do, I promise you, you WILL regret it.
