Reliable commuter car
Air conditioner compressor clutch went out at 100,000 miles. It was a $500.00 repair.
Third fan blower speed stopped working around 120,000. Did not repair.
Used a quart of oil every 2-3 weeks. This is common for Saturns, as I've heard from others.
This car has been a great commuter car for me. Aside from the items listed above and regular wear and tear items, I have had no trouble out of this car. Make sure to keep up on the oil levels, and this car will last as long as you want it to.
This car handles very well in bad weather (rain, snow, etc.). My MPG averaged around 32-36 in mixed driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
