1997 Saturn SL2 Reviews

My 15 year old Saturn SL2 has 245,000 miles on it and could continue to provide me with more miles, but it starting to burn some oil and has a cracked windshield. I am going to buy a used SL2 with lower miles because I believe so much in this car. With the plastic body panels it looks as good as new! A great car.

I love my Saturn. It is 14 years old and it is the best little car I ever drove. I wish I could get another new one.

we purchased vehicle with 14000 mile it has been great running on highway and good on gas mileage. very dependable
