David Hanna for Forbes notes that in 1994, Saturn was the third best-selling car model in the United States. Even in 2000, it was ranked only second to Lexus as the car model with the highest customer satisfaction level.

The problem with purchasing any old Saturn car models is the lack of customer support for operating issues that may come up because the company no longer exists. As Consumer Reports pointed out in 2009, it is possible for mechanics to still be able to fix any issues that come up with Saturn cars for years to come. The caveat is that any repairs are likely to be much more costly than in years past.
