Owner Stories: Having Fun with My 1998 SC2

Well I walked in to my local used car lot and asked the salesman for a car that was sporty, got good gas mileage, and was front wheel drive because I needed something better to drive in the snow than my Camaro Z28). He showed me a variety of imports, and I test drove a few of them including an Eclipse Spyder, Jetta, and Civic to name a few. They were all overpriced and had poor performance.

We then came across a black '98 SC-2 with 30,000 miles. I had never driven a Saturn or heard much about them, so I figured I would take it for test drive. To my amazement it was by far the fastest, best handling car that I had looked at so far, and the price was wasn't to bad either. I was hooked.

I ended up buying the car and putting it through it's paces the first day (nothing like a little back mountain road racing to test out a new car). The car handled exceptionally well. More than 100,000 miles later its still running strong! I eventually want to put some upgrades on it, but for now I'm having plenty of fun with it.

Chrysler plants that are targeted to close due to bankruptcy troubles were specifically mentioned. The group wants to continue to employee UAW workers at these plants. While recognizing the high costs associated with employing union workers, such as benefits and pensions, the group believes that it is the right move for two reasons.
