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.

Great car by Jen on 11/03/2008. Trim: 1997 Saturn SL2, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: She's been a great little car. I paid 10K for her back in 97 used. All in all I have put maybe 2k in various repairs in the 11 years I've had her (this includes oil changes and tires). Same clutch when I bought her, no real problems (except the window sticks now and then) My teenage son put new speaks in her ~ after putting in the speakers is when the trouble started. He felt I would benefit from playing loud rap (was he kidding)??
Cons: Not alot of leg room in the back (tall kids)
Overall review: I'm going to give this car to my daughter when she starts driving next year. A friend here at work has the same model and year as mine and he is over 200k miles.

The Rust Resistor by Melanie on 01/19/2003. Trim: 1997 Saturn SL1, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The plastic body means the vechicle always looks great. No rusting door panels or wheel wells.
Cons: The overall quality of the interior, seating, materials etc, is lower end and therefore not very comfortable.
Overall review: A good car, at a good price.
