Flashback Friday: Saturn Introduces the SW Wagon

Quote:
Saturn unveiled the all-new 1993 SW2 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit during the winter of '92. Billed by the company as a "sedan with a backpack," the SW expanded Saturn's lineup and offered customers new levels of cargo space and utility.

LOVED my little SW2. And yes, you could pack it with lots of stuff! Was amazed how much I could fit in that little car.

Charlie, glad to see the Flashback Friday entry again too!

Loved both of the ones I had. Had Saturn ever brought out a proper replacement, (preferably with AWD), they'd still have a customer.

I'd have at least one SW2 in my driveway, likely two, if they still made them.

Default Re: Flashback Friday: Saturn Introduces the SW Wagon

Imagine how many they'd sell now with gas approaching $3.00 a gallon again?

If mine wasn't bent in half by that truck I'd still be driving mine. It was the best little wagon I ever drove. You could fit almost anything in an SW2. They really only needed to add a few things like maybe AWD and some other small details to make it perfect. I really like my Vue but it still doesn't compare to how much fun I had driving the SW2...

Perhaps a wagon pwner can explain this part of the ad (and I quote):

"the sport-tined suspension system"

Did they make it from 100% tin, or was it just tin-plated?

I loved my '95 SW1 for its thiftyness. But, it was slow.

The vue was a good replacement for the SW. But I moved on to a used Mercury mini-van b/c it was cheaper, and more versatile. The van just turned 10 yrs old. It does OK, but it is rusting like all hell. The moral is still true, you get what you pay for.
