#1 of 3 Saturn VS Pontiac
Nov 05, 2007 (4:18 pm)
I currently have two cars and I need to sell one. One is a 2000 Saturn SL2 with approx. 95000 miles, and the other is a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE2 with approx 110000 miles. They are both in very similar condition - normal wear and tear, and no major mechanical problems. They are both valued very close to the same price. I was just wondering if anyone has a suggestion as to which would be the better choice for the next 5 or so years. Thanks

Keep the one you like the best . If you like them equally, I would probably recommend the Saturn because it is newer, has lower miles, is less succeptible to body rust, and probably is more fuel efficient. On the downside, the Saturn probably will use more oil..

I'd probably stick with the Saturn, especially considering that gas will probably never get below $2.90 again any time soon.
You'll want to keep an eye on the oil in the Saturn, but adding a quart of oil here and there beats the infamous intake manifold gasket jobs that tend to go with owning a V6 Grand Am (which I presume the SE2 to be).
