I'm somewhat new here but am impressed at the insight a lot of the posters here have about various car makers products. I am one of those people with a strong bias towards imports as far as reliability and longevity goes (our current stable is a Nissan Titan and a Subaru Forestor). My dilema is that my niece is looking at a 2002 Saturn L200 with a 2.2 liter engine and an automatic transmission and I have no insight on them. I performed a search here and noted that that Saturn 2.2 seems to be a very good engine. I believe they are ecotec engines? My questions are as follows: Are all Saturn 2.2's ecotoc's and how if the longevity of there auto trans. I have a strong manual trans bias in this car segment whether it be a honda, subaru, nissan or toyota product. Thanks in advance for your insight and replies.
