Heres another SL1. Love the no rust. Pic must be a bit old though as it doesn't look anything like that around here now.

EPA: 25/29/36

CVT: Because regular automatics don't have enough points of failure.

Car looks awesome. BUT! How well do plastic body panels adhere to rust?

Seriously... what's the low-down on Saturns that are subjected to lots of road salt? There must be an Achille's heel of corrosion in there somewhere.

There is one in Norfolk Va with a bricked battery and 130k miles for $1300.

Sorry, it's a Prius.

I'd go for it, if it were a manual trans. There are plenty of options for refurbishing the Honda battery packs out there.

2006 Aveo 5-speed, $800



OK, this one misses the "35 mpg hwy" qualification. It's only rated 32. But Daox coaxed 40 mpg in daily driving when he had his 5-speed Aveo sedan.

22 City
26 Combined
32 Hwy
Fuel Economy of 2006 Chevrolet Aveo 5

Asking 800 bucks, includes a set of winter wheels/tires. Needs a rear brake cylinder to pass inspection.
