Well, I've got a 93 SL2 that has 170,000 miles on it, and aside from standard maintenance such as oil changes, tune-ups and the like, it runs like a champ. I've got the 1.9 litre DOHC Motor, and the Manual Transmission. I love the car to death. I deliver pizza for Pizza Hut and put anywhere from 50 to 100 miles of hard use on my car per day. It has taken more abuse from me with less complaint than any other car I've owned(more than 20 cars). It's fast(0 - 60 in 6 to 7 secs!), efficient(28 mpg) and fun! Saturn comes highly recommended by me! :)

Beware! The SL1s and SL2s from appr 1991 to 1994 are very sensitive. I just had my engine replaced (92 SL1) and spent appr 3700 on the job (including tow trucks and a crate engine and the mechanics time). I was told by my mechanic that if I had the SL2 for that year the job might have cost me up to 1500 dollars more than it did. The difference between the two models is that the SL1 has a single overhead cam, the SL2 has a dual overhead cam. I love my car, and its zippy and fun, but it needs more frequent tune-ups than are recommended, even by the manufacturer. Just my personal experience.

I have a 1995 SL2 manual trans. I deliver pizza for domino's, I've put 45000 miles in just one year, it went through snow, rain, and mud, the only thing I've done was regular oil changes and basic tune ups. By the way my sat have 150000 miles now and still runs like new. I love my saturn, it's by far the best car I've ever owned!!

I have a 1993 Saturn SL2 and my buddy has 1995 Saturn SL2. Trust me, we would like to burn them to the ground, useless junk.

I had this problem in my 1993 Saturn SL2. It is probably the fuel injectors. No matter how many cleaners you run through it, you need to take in and get the injectors flushed out. Probably about $70. My car went from dieing about 10 times a trip, to none.
