1995 SW1
Default Re: Goodbye Saturn: Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

thanks for a great site and story.

I bought my saturn in 1995. My first new car. I had a baby on the way and needed something that would run, safe, be cheap to maintain, and good on gas.

Well that baby is learning to drive in that car that brought her home from the hospital! it now has 182K on the odometer. collectively I have spent 3K in repairs not counting 4 sets of tires and countless oil changes of the 15 years of ownership. That car will have to explode for me not to fix her when she needs a helping hand.

It still runs like a champ getting 40mpg on the highway. Best 13K I have ever spent!

What else is there to say other than GM could have taken this model of awesome and reinvented their entire process of making and selling cars but they went a different way.

1995 Saturn SW1
2001 Suburban
2004 MR2 Spyder
2007 Cooper S R52

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
