That's right: after-market automatic door locks for 2000 S?

It is possible?

Discuss.

I would just figure since your manual ones work fine you would leave it.

I have a fear of power windows and locks, the fact that if I were to ever end up in a ditch with waterI could drown. I prefer manuals to that.

I was just wondering if there were pros or cons to having them

you can manually unlock the door still. As for the window, even if a car is fully submerged under water, the window will still roll down, granted that you're not 100 feet under with all the pressure pushing inwards.

Aftermarket door lock actuators can be installed in Saturns, although it is a little more difficult than other cars, because you have to remove the outer door panel instead of (or along with) the inner one. In fact, when I decide to repair the @#$%&* window regulators in my newly acquired SC1, I'll probably install actuators at the same time(I already have them).Maybe I'll take some pictures and post them as a do-it-yourself-project.

That would be EXCEEDINGLY awesome.

Any idea where to inquire about getting the necessary stuff for my car?

I got my kit for my girlfriend and I from commandocaralarms.com. It works great for us! (We have alarms)

Door lock actuators can usually be purchased from various places from JC Whitney or Crutchfield to almost any car audio & security install shop. You can get a complete kit for 2 or 4 doors($50-100) with all the wiring and relays or you can buy individual actuators($5-15ea.) if you're comfortable with wiring it yourself.

It can be done failry easily with aftermarket parts by removing the outer door panel. It can be extremely easy using stock parts.
