1997 Saturn SC from North America
Buy a Honda at least their made in the U.S.A
I'm glad I kept my S-10 @225k runs like a champ.
Mad oil consumption @75.
Loud knock @80k.
Excessive Oil leak from valve cover @100k.
Stuttering, stumbling and stalling @125k.
This car needs constant checks and maintenance to remain reliable, Lucas will save it.
Not very comfortable interior.
Handles well in any conditions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Actually these Saturns were made in the U.S. Which engine do you have? I'm beginning to see weird problems with Saturn engines which is odd to me since I have known people who have driven these cars forever without problems. The valve cover "gasket" is a problem with Saturns as it is not a real gasket. It is, instead, a sprayed-on silicone seal. This was a cost-saving measure at the factory, but it only lasts about 100,000 miles.
Unfortunately, many automakers are doing this now, I know even the Mercedes C240 has sprayed-on valve cover "gaskets."
