No major problems except those associated with age. Decent work horse, not fancy, could be more comfortable for taller drivers. Not crazy about the steering, always seemed a little loose but they use a special valve steering system so it's okay, my wife has no issues with it.

We purchased this vehicle new in 1996 and have had absolutely no problems with it. The interior and exterior have held up. It gets about 32 mpg and is a blast to drive. We have replaced the battery twice, new tires once, brakes once in 87000 miles, but no major repairs to any component (engine,transmission,etc.) Great vehicle; other manufacturers should model themselves after Saturn.

My second is our 1996 SL2.
When I bought it the engine was ill and I knew it.
I swapped the engine and all was not perfect.
We have had a series of issues that take time to fix.
Passing emissions is the biggest headache, with many "code" issues and many hours troubleshooting piddly problems.
We have replaced a drivers window motor(easy from the outside). and have many cosmetic and small issues.
This was a cheap, cheaply made car that has excellent performance and mileage, however suffers from nagging small issues that make it a pain.
