2000 Saturn SW2 Reviews
Bought this car used and pretty badly beaten for $1500 and put about $1000 into it (new radiator, alignment, brakes, tires, and tune up) before driving it from California to Georgia. It's been a reliable car for about two years and at 135,000 I can't complain too much. I have never owned a station wagon before but it's spacious and once it was cleaned out, seat covers made the car look almost new. It was a perfect second hand car and I'd recommend a Saturn to anyone, except they went out of business in 2009, so now the parts are going to be discontinued and scarce.
