2001 Saturn SL from North America
The best car I have ever owned
Had to replace the alternator (rebuild it actually) one month after the warranty expired, along with the battery.
Water pump needed to be replaced; cost of the parts and labor was $75.
Have to bend a tab in gas cap door to shut it occasionally.
This car is the best car I have ever owned. It has given me no headaches, and is completely reliable. I could drive this car across the country and not think twice about it.
The A/C compressor recently went belly up, but the parts are pretty inexpensive, especially if you can buy them used.
Overall, I would highly recommend a Saturn, especially if one is on a budget. It's a better car than my 1990 Saab 900 (my previous car).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
