Cost-effective basic transportation
Clutch disk failure at 152,000 miles.
Seat padding was thinning by 130,000.
Very impressed with my first Saturn. Wanted an inexpensive transport and got more than I paid for. Purchased at 125,000 miles and replaced clutch at 130,000. Engine and body are solid as a rock, protective and gave 37+ MPH.
Note: My daughter was hit from rear while stopped by Lincoln doing 50mph. Both cars were totaled. My daughter had minimal injuries could still drive the car. The Lincoln driver had to climb into back seat to exit her car; front doors jammed. I recommend the Saturn SL series for good basic transport, especially for students or commuters.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
