Transition or Loaner Vehicle...Short Term Use Only! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/25/2009. Trim: 1999 Saturn SW1, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great gas mileage and plenty of cargo room.
Cons: Doors did not seal propery always sounded like you were driving in a wind tunnel. Replaced starter twice in one year of ownership and many other small things to try to clear the "service engine soon" warning light, o2 sensor, different cellinoids, plugs, wires, etc. Repair costs added up very quickly!! Very loud to drive had to crank up the radio to drown out the road noise.
Overall review: I only owned this for one year, couldn't wait to trade it in. Handled good and was nice with having a lil one and needing to tote around alot of stuff. But just couldn't stand to drive it being so loud not to mention the "Service Engine Soon" light was on perpetually, 3 different service stations could not figure out why, replace everything to clear the codes that came up but still it remained lit and the Saturn dealership said it needed a new computer chip which would have ran over $2000 to replace with parts and labor...not worth it!
