1994 Saturn SL from North America
This car has only been reliable for me
Small metal line that feeds water pump got a leak. repaired it with stop leak. Perfect!
Water filter had to be replaced... once in 5 years
Tensioner pulley broke. Repaired for $200 total.
I love my car!
I have had this 'girl' for 5 years and she has been highly dependable. I drive and treat her with care, changing the oil religiously every 3,000 miles. I only put prem gas in her.
My Saturn has been a grand car for me. One problem with the 94's and 95's is that they are easy to steal. Mine was stolen three times and came back untouched each time. Washington is a misdemeanor rule for car theft if it is considered joy-riding and no damage is done to car. Mine was perfect. The last time I found a brand new portable car charger in the trunk. Go figure. We charged the dead battery and then drove home.
This car still gets 24mpg in town and 27 on the road. Little things are beginning to go wrong, but what the hey, I will fix them. The main worry for me is that she may be stolen again and mistreated. Yes, a anti-theft bar goes on the steering column whenever I am not in the drivers seat.
This car is excellent on tire wear also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
