"Saturn SL is an excellent value for the money. This car consistently gets 30+ miles to the gallon in the city and at least 43 on the highway using the air conditioner and traveling in the mountains. It averages 46-48 miles per gallon on long highway trips through the mountains. Being a manual transmission allows for down shifting and good speeds up steep grades - even with the 4 cylinder engine."

"#1 - GREAT GAS MILEAGE!!! Next, it's Very reliable. Normal maintenance is very easy, and parts are cheap! Mine is not the most comfortable (no P/S, P/W, P/L). But that's just less to go wrong. And HANDLING!! It sticks to the road! With snow tires in winter, I could climb a mountain on ICE! (OK, a little exaggeration) I always felt safe in this car!!!"

"I have had this car since 1999 when I bought it brand new. It has been a real good driveable car rearly would brake down. The only annoying thing I disliked about this car is the tires. Saturn decided to be different and make the rims so unique so its hard to find them aftermarket. They really want you to go back to them to buy there tires. Which at the time were pricey. I finally found a place that carried them for cheap 100.00 ea rather than 400.00 elsewhere (saturn). Other than that this car has lasted a long time.."
