4 out of 5 stars

Not fancy but a hard worker and cheap too

by Mechanical Engineer from Northern Vermont on May 31, 2007

Bought my SW2 from a Saturn dealer in 1999 with 62,000 miles. Just gave it up in 2007 at 193,000 miles. Extremely economical and reliable. Parts replaced in 8 years: muffler, horn, ignition coil, brake rotors, rear swaybar links. That's all! Average 32 MPG on country roads (5 speed), hit 40 MPG once on a long highway run. Adequate power, but you could tell by the response when you had a passenger. Towed a 950 pound boat reasonably well. If they were still made I would have very seriously considered buying a new one. What I liked: - cost of ownership - appearance What I didn't like: - noisy, rattly (especially toward the end) - instrument cluster visibility (steering wheel blocked part of speedometer) - oil filter nearly inaccessible
