1994 Saturn SL from North America
Loved it! Miss it! Want another one!
Seat support broke, however the person who owned the car before me was a LARGE man.
Rocker sills rusted out quite badly, however, there is a lot of salt used on the roads in my area, and after all, it is really the only place on the car that can go bad :)
This car was the most reliable car I have ever owned, and more reliable than some of the new cars my friends had. Obviously there was the usual wear and tear...brakes, exhaust, replaced a water pump and alternator, but remember, the car was over 13 years old!
I love the way it handled; tight, smooth, and as sporty feeling as the Trans-am I drove a few years previous to this, except on a smaller scale. I was initially skeptical of an automatic 4cyl, but I have to tell you, it was as peppy as any 4cyl standard I've ever driven, and I've driven quite a few.
It is sporty looking for a 4-door sedan. I put a front bra on mine, it was the only one around with one, and it really stood out! Very sharp.
Power window would have been nice on mine, as I found the roller arm to be in a little awkward position.
I have children, so the back seat got a lot of use. Was a good size when they were younger, but as my daughter grew, it did lack a little leg room for her, as she is all legs and feet.
I would own another one in a heartbeat, and I'd recommend them to anyone! Anyone who doesn't like them, or had a bad experience I think has just got the one bad apple in the bag - toss it and get another one, you won't be disappointed!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
