"I bought this car new and it had some issues but the warranty covered them, the gas tank spout started rusting and the back windshield washer motor started making a loud humming noise, but haven't had a problem since. I have loved this car from the very moment I drove it off of the lot, and ."

"My husband found this car for me after my 17-yr-old Camry died. When he called me at work to say "I found you a Saturn, but all they have is a station wagon", I got so excited that I was squirming in my chair. "Don't tell the dealer, but I've always wanted a station wagon." This car was 3 yrs. old when we bought it, and it's 18 now with 139K miles. It's extremely dependable, lots of fun to drive, and still gets 26/29 mpg. Except for routine maintenance, all we've had to replace was the catalytic converter, which deteriorated thanks to the ethanol in gasoline. People sometimes look at me oddly when I say I don't want a new vehicle, but who in her right mind would trade this wonderful little car with no payments, for something new, + payments, + the same gas mileage? Buying this car was the wisest decision I ever made!"

Pros: "Cheap to repair, last 300K miles, comfortable, fun"

Cons: "engines use/burn oil after 100K miles"

"The Saturn S-series cars are great all around transportation. The plastic body panels make the car look great unless you break them. There are so many parts that interchange the cost of repair is much less than other cars. They ride nice and have comfortable seats. They are easy to work on and they hold their value. The only bad thing about them is you have to be sure to check the oil level regularly as the engines tend to use/leak oil after they get 100K miles on them. I've seen Saturn S-series cars go to 300K miles before they are worn out. All in all, a good value if you want basic transportation."

"I am saddened to know there will never be another new Saturn. The Saturn Company built an awesome, affordable, reliable vehicle. They knew what they were doing when it came to making a great vehicle. After I bought mine my brother bought one for his wife, son and himself and is looking for one for his daughter. It is too bad they allowed themselves to be bought out and taken down. That was a sorry day in automotive history."
