"bought this car new for 10,000 in may of 2002 and have driven it for 173,000 miles and the only mechanical problems have been replace brake master cylinder and slave and install a new clutch kit at 173 000 miles..of course, tires, brakes, and oil changes every 3000 miles. It does not burn any oil and starts within 1 second when i turn the key..most economical and worry free car i have ever owned and at age 76 i have owned a lot of them"

Pros: "Excellent gas mileage"

"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."
