Not so sure on Saturn longevity...seems they have a lot of engines burning oil and failing prematurely.

sorry deleted that seemed a little blah but since we're talking about it.. saturns dont have holes for oil drainage, so if you keep up on the oil.. they will last to 500k my last ones' engine died at 200k cause of a loose spark plug at neg 7 degress F, those who drive saturns and dont check oil kill them... its my belief that saturn has rigged these cars to burn oil since it is a fact that they lack good oil drainage, but this can be alleviated by using synthetic, adding oil... all said, my deleted post stated that saturns have hig highest ratings among american cars and highest crash ratings among american cars, and handle damn well in and out of the snow...(with right tires)+(cheap parts cause theyre everywhere/american) compared to a ford escort which you'd never catch me behind the wheel of after I saw one careem a barrier at an intersection last summer... SCREW (old, 1998 and older) FORDS,(unless they have serious handling upgrades/have master wobblmeister behind the wheel)
