"This was my first vehicle as a teenager, I owned it for about 5 years then decided to buy something larger once we started a family. We sold it with over 180,000 miles to my brother who drove it to almost 200,000. From the moment we sold it we regretted selling it. We recently bought a second one, we drove 2 hours to get the low mileage great condition vehicle as we plan on driving it until it dies. Great gas mileage at about 30 mpg. The front cv joints were a common issue with this vehicle, but they are not difficult to replace and inexpensive."
"Reliable and cheap but ready to go any where when you are my sw1 is convenient with the storage in back. Repair are pretty resonable too no major problems just basic maintance. Great gas mileage. Car is under valued. The only problem is the plastic on the door panels and arm rests."
Cons: "Not the prettiest car but one of the best."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I paid 650 for this car 2 years ago, I wasn't impressed with how it looked and was just looking for something cheap and reliable. Boy am I impressed!! My Saturn does everything and I can trust it going anywhere. Its good on gas and picks up speed with the best of them. My wife and I own 4 cars and we drive them all and there have been times when the other cars, which are newer and more expensive, have had problems that cost us to have them fixed but never my Saturn. Great AC, easy to work on but never break downs, this car gave me great respect for Saturn. I would recommend a 1994 Saturn SL to anybody. Keep your fluids changed and roll!!"
"My Saturn had 4 miles on it when I rolled it off the lot. 17.5 years later it is still running great. With close to 300000 miles, I have had nothing but great luck with this car. The most expensive repair has been the A/C some years ago. I am on the factory transmission, including clutch! The most reliable car I have ever known."
