I like canadian made... LOL
Traction control is mainly used in winter for rough icy conditions, unless your all over the road pulling your ebrake in traffic (which only i am dumb enough to do) then you might wanna throw it on, but i would hate to have traction control or ABS, i have much more control over my crwith the Ebrake, brakes and gas. up to you though.

Traction control DEFAULTS to ON everytime the car is started. It is a PASSIVE rather than active system. It will have NO EFFECT on the car's operation (or MPG) unless wheel spin is detected. LEAVE IT ON. The Traction Control system shares the same wheel speed sensors as the ABS brakes. (You knew the car also had ABS right?) The only thing to worry about on previously owned higher mileage Saturns (that were reasonably maintained by the previous owner(s) is the OIL LEVEL. Check it at EVERY fill up.
