2000 Saturn L100 Wagon


Asking Price: $1,750

While all your friends are crammed into Corolla Sedans all winter, opt instead for a Saturn L100 Wagon. Despite an initial product launch of Edsel-like proportions, some Saturn L-Series cars squeaked through the quality issues and have gone on to run for a decade-and-a-half now with minor issues. This one has 153,000 on the clock, suggesting that it doesn't have the timing chain problems that were associated with some L-Series cars with the 2.2-liter engine. For $1,750 ... which you could probably negotiate down to $1,200 pretty easily ... this is the car you can drive into a frozen lake and not feel bad about afterward. Studded snows, foot right to the mat everywhere you go. That's how you drive one of these.
