This is my Second Saturn, 1st as a Manuel, Love it

Bought this car for $2000. Burnt Orange color with the 3rd door that comes in really handy! Nimble, quick and easy to park! I get easily 43 mpg hwy. A lot of newer cars in this class don't get that kind of mpg, and this car is going on 18 Yr old! Ice cold A/C too! I don't know why Manuals are going away. They're are SO much fun to drive! Long Live Saturn!!

Good, Economical car

This car is simple, inexpensive vehicle, that wasn't too much trouble to maintain. It has it's quirks, like the typical ignition cylinder issue, but overall, a decent vehicle.

The Most Fun & Sporty looking car I ever owned!

I bought this 2002 SC1 manual with only 113k miles for only $2900. It's been Love at first sight! I used Amsoil for all fluids in the car along with a K&N air filter! I also use Platinum plugs & Bosch wires. Runs like a champ! Runs Awesomely for a 17 yr old car! Makes me smile every time I use it!

Loved it

The 3rd door made it easier to get backseat passengers in but the faux window on the other side i didnt like. Great on gas only 20 to fill it up.great accelaration and handling

Great combination of fun, practicality and economy

I've owned my 2002 SC2 almost 2 years now, and it's been a great experience! Bought it with 70k miles, and just hit 90k recently. No major problems. Great on gas (I average 24-30 with around the town driving, and up to 40 on the highway), but the motor still has plenty of pep for highway driving and passing slow pokes. It's no Porsche but I have fun driving it around curvy roads, she handles really well!! It's a great looking car too, very sporty looking and also practical with the 3rd suicide door so you have the coupe look, but you can easily access the back seat if you need to. Interior comfort is adequate for front passengers. I'm 6 foot and have no problem with space. The rear seat is a bit small, but it's expected for a small coupe. I get a kick out of the number of cupholders: 6 in total, so you'll always have a place for you and your friends' beverages. Definitely a great combination of fun, practicality and good fuel economy! These cars run forever as long as you take care of them.

Love my Little Blue

I bought mine over 2 years ago with only 32,000 miles on it. It gets good mileage and more than enough get up and go without worrying about getting tickets all the time. Not rusting is also a good point seeing as I am in the northeast. It has been a nice little car for me but I am thankful I do not have to carry passengers in back seat often as they are very small. I still love the looks of the car and have been satisfied. Main drawback is finding some parts that have to be Saturn parts as some cannot be just generic parts.

Ford Lover Loves her Saturn

I have a Saturn SC2, purchased for my daughter 3 years ago (With 143,000 miles on it!). I have been driving it, as she is in college and not allowed to have a car her freshman year. I absolutely love it!! It is comfortable to drive, gets incredible gas mileage, and it is really cute. I get 40 mpg on the highway! I am currently looking for another one for me, as she'll be needing hers soon. I have four Mustangs, but this little Saturn is my daily driver! (Currently 175K on the SC2 - and still runing strong.

Vehicle purchased for Grand Daughter

The vehicle works great for her and what works for her works for me.. Thanks.. The vehicle was a one owner car, maintained by vehicle owner father and had never been in an accident. Paint and tires were excellent. Had no floor mats and seller knocked off one hundred for floor mats and an oil change. Engine sounds great with little valve noise. Was driven by a non-smoker to school each day.
