Great car for 130K, I expect another 130K

by Mr_BILL from New Rochelle, NY on Fri Jan 30 2015

Replace he cooling temp sensor & thermostat, and go forever. At 16 years the clock light went. I can't believe I still have the original exhaust & Catalytic-convertor. My previous car, a '93 Honda needed a new exhaust every 6 years. Stereo heating, seats, all great. No major issues, Saturn just keeps running. Around town fuel mileage is 22mpg. I have the roof rack, occasionally use it, very useful.

Most reliable, yet gaudy car I've ever owned

by bigdaddy from Harrisonburg, Virginia on Thu Aug 09 2018

It's not much of a looker but for its age I respect it. It's no luxury sports car but it will get you from a to b. The MPG and quality of the ride alone is what makes this car so great. It's also cheap to maintain and parts are cheap.

Our Take on the 1999 Saturn SW

One of the best-kept secrets in the automotive industry is that Saturn makes a station wagon.

No surprise because station wagons themselves are one of the best-kept secrets in the industry.

Only a handful are offered and anyone who can name three of them should be considered an automotive historian. Of course, anyone who can name three wagons now sold also needs to get a life, but we digress.

We tested the 1999 Saturn SW2 wagon, with the 2 after the SW (station wagon) designation meaning it has a 1.9-liter, 125-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, larger 15-inch radial tires and body-colored fenders. (Saturn wagons designated SW1 get along with the less potent and slightly noisier 1.9-liter 100-h.p... Read More
