It was a good decision to buy this car and I still like it even after 18 years
5 alternators - but Saturn allowed warranty on many.
Upper engine mount needed replacement at 80,000 miles.
Failed HC emissions - mostly due to ring blowby.
This car is very comfortable to drive, and handles exceptionally well in hard cornering.
Engine and transmission work well together, and don't hunt on hills or medium load when accelerating.
I still own the car, because I wouldn't give it up to a dealer for only $1000 credit.
It is not perfect, but is perhaps one of the best American econo-boxes.
Overall reliability was good, but not excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
