What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Saturn S-Series

Saturn S-Series Personal Experiences: Pros
2002 4dr Coupe 124-horsepower 1.9L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
94 SL2 went 300K miles and was sold still running/driveable. Hoping the 2002 SC2 will be as reliable. 94 was great in the snow (ABS and Traction Control w/Auto). Snow storm in Jersey 3rd day I had car gave same results. Gas mileage on the 94 was life time at 31.6 (bought car used with 38K on it) So far '02 has done better MPG and is much quieter inside. full 2002 Saturn S-Series review
