1997 Saturn SC 1.9 from North America
I love it
I agree with the oil consumption posts. However, it gets great fuel economy aroung 36mph+ so adding a quart of good grade oil is cheap at $1.40-$2.00. It also burns much less oil at 10-40SAE vs 10-30. The oil consumption more than likely the rings going bad or gone. I suggest just keeping an extra few quarts of oil around and check the oil at every fill up! It is easy and will keep your car running for a long time. No oil in an engine is death to an engine. These cars are cheap and need usually simple care to keep going. I have 2 Saturn SC2 1997 models and one has 197000miles and the other 136000. Both Automatics and get great Fuel economy. Just make sure to ALWAYS check your oil and top it off and your car should never have engine failure.
Sporty, easy to drive. Great economy. Using Firestone Affinity Tires perform well for me.
The car is a cheap sporty car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
