1993 Saturn SC2 Reviews
I am the third owner. The odometer stopped working at just over 145K- 8 years ago! Everything else works properly. This car runs great! Crisp handeling, impressive acceleration, and it stops on a dime. No leaks, no noises, no problems... and very good gas milage too. With continued regular maintanence, (oil, breaks, tires, etc...), I fully expect this car will easily last 10 more years! - It's that good! We are going to Florida again soon and we have a much newer Chrysler town & country minivan, or also newer ford taurus, and, as usual, we are going in the Saturn.
Nice light fiberglass car , hard to find new tires for some reason.
Good dependable transportation. 162,000 miles & going strong.
