1996 Saturn SL from North America
Boring drive, superior dependability
A couple of emissions sensors
I sold a Caddy and bought this car for a 30 mile commute to save on gas.
Although this car is not very exciting to drive, it has been very dependable and cheap to run.
Gas mileage is great.
Performance is boring even with the manual transmission.
I see lots of bad reviews on this car and I don't know if I got lucky or people just like to complain, but I had nothing major go wrong with this car and I have NEVER been stranded with it, and it starts in the coldest weather.
There was a bad run in some intake casting issues, but I guess I never got one of those or it just hasn't happened yet.
But with 265,000 Kms this car owes me nothing.
It is starting to show its age, but it always starts and runs great.
I would not be afraid to buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
