1998 Saturn SL SL1 1.8 from North America
Reliable first car, and a reliable commuter car
The oxygen sensor was replaced a month after buying the car. So was the driver's side taillight bulb.
When my 1995 Intrepid was totaled in a car accident, I needed another car. I have always wanted a Saturn SL model in the worst way. At the used car lot where I went to look at cars, was the one that I have. It had 78000 miles on it, and the body looked really good. It ran good, but needed the oxygen sensor to make the car run like new. The paint color? Kind of like an eggplant color.
I really love this car a whole lot. It is so peppy on the road, and gets great gas mileage. I am an overweight guy, and the interior fits me perfectly. The seats are very comfortable. The ride? Really good.
These make great commuter cars, great second cars, and great first cars. They are extremely reliable. Would I recommend anyone to buy one of these? Absolutely.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
