1993 Saturn SL1 Reviews
If there was a half a star, I would use it.
I like the styling, It is right around the time the big three started to round out cars and eliminate the boxiness! Unfortunately my interior roof is draping, Need to clean EGR valve(or buy a $100 new one), and the Catalytic Conv is ripped apart. I did put a $20 dollar muffler on it (saved $300 dollars from Midas), And with 167,000 miles on it, It will eventually need a Clutch, Sending unit(Gas Tank), and a little rust repair on the roof. But that is really it! I do my own preventive maintanance and boy does it pay off!
The big three have to go back to the basics with cars, and this one (1993 SL) is a good example!
Well I have a 1993 Saturn SL 1 and It is awesome on gas! I put a new exahust, new starter, new cooling sensor, bunch of other parts. I only have one problem that I just cannot figure out its the seatbelt they are automatic and although its there and it buckles it doesn't go up but it clicks like it should roll up. Its so frustrating I have bought the manual and looked through it and nothing. This is the only real problem other then that (the odometer has never worked since i bought it) but its been a good car got me where I gota go and back
