A very dependable and reliable car
I needed to have the brakes replaced, both front and rear, twice. Each time at about 50,000 miles. And I had to replace the alternator once. The front seat began to tear for some reason on the drivers side. It is on the upright edge on the window side. And just recently, at about 90,000 miles, I had to have the head gasket replaced because of an oil leak.
This is the most reliable car I ever owned, and I think that's why I've kept it for almost 10 years now. It has never left me stranded and I've driven it numerous times back and forth from Chicago to Los Angeles. It's a car with a very small interior and the acceleration isn't all that great, especially with the air conditioner running, but outside of that, I think it's a great dependable car. And I've taken the car in for scheduled services, like oil changes, at different Saturn dealerships throughout the country, and at each location I was treated very well. I will definitely purchase another Saturn, most likely in the next few months just because I would like to have a newer car, and the interests rates are 0. But my next Saturn will need a bit more horsepower than this 1994 SC1.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
