I have an 2004 jetta and love it. its been a great car. bought it new and have had only two things needing replaced. The biggest thing is it cost big when something needs fixed. I recently had to replace the fuel pump and it cost $900.
Saturns with proper maintance r economical n e z on gas..itz parts are cheaper than a jetta unless u have no problem it jetting ur pockets go for it..but I would choose the saturn if theres nothing wrong with it
