1992 Saturn SL 1.9 from North America
It's mostly made of plastic
A/C stopped working - bypassed it.
One motor mount bolt snapped.
Great first vehicle or commuter. Towards the end, the transmission started slipping during take off and got tired of taking 2 showers a day. Would buy another without the sunroof and electric windows.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Oh yeah, the motor mounts and A/C needed fixin' on my SW. I had a manual, with no sunroof, though.
I agree, though -- the S-Series are great used cars. Their depreciation favors the second owner, not the first.

Never heard of any car whose depreciation would "favor" the first owner.
Even someone who buys a leftover car from the previous model year at a discount, will take a bigger hit on depreciation when they sell/trade it, since it was already a year old at time of purchase!

Yes, that was poorly worded on my part.
The first customer wants a car to hold its value; subsequent customers often want the opposite. Orphan brands, like Saturn, offer great deals to the latter.
