Disappointed by a US car by car FAN on 10/15/2005. Trim: 1997 Saturn SL2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: almost nothing
Cons: everything. had problems almost every week. fuse, warning light, alternator, rattling inside from here to there and from time to time, jerk at acceleration, very very loud engine, fuel economy for such a small car, engine light on, engine leak, brake fuild leak, belt, pulley, window noisy, radio light problem...
Overall review: When I went to Saturn Dealer for estimation, the dealer said it was worth only CAD dallor 1000, and he was unwilling to accept it because it was extremely difficult for them to resell it. Actually, Saturn is far behind Honda Civic. In short, Saturn is a piece of junk, a real lemon. In rest of my life, I will make sure not a friend of mine buy a Saturn nor an American car, nor any other brand's car that is made in USA. Go to imported car, such as Honda, Toyota, or Nissian.

The only fast and fuel-efficient car by Fre$hness from Boston on 12/27/2011. Trim: 1997 Saturn SL2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Extremely fuel efficient. Good looking. Powerful.
Cons: Definitely the interior: There's absolutely nothing special about its interior. And you'd expect a car as good as that to have a better interior with more accessories.
Overall review: Great car. Very fuel efficient. And yes I do recommend it anybody.

Overall review: i bought this vehicle almost 2 years ago with 116 thousand miles on it and i now have driven 25,000 miles and i have not had to repair a single thing the only things i have had done to this car is routine maintenance and new tires it just keeps going and going i have had to have nothing repaired at all and it has not left me stranded. This is a great car i would recommend it to anyone it is very reliable and great on gas, cheap to fix and as long as you keep them up like you are supposed to they will run forever! everyone that i know that has a Saturn Sl series is very happy with its quality. I love my little Saturn it gets me everywhere!! a very good reliable first car for anyone! you will not be disappointed.
