Yes, it has both gray and maroon colored fenders and doors, but I still think that this specimen of used vehicle was a steal at $800. This 1994 Saturn gets over 30 mpg, which is a vast improvement over the 12 mpg my wife was getting in her Suburban, and at 300 miles of driving per week, she will have a full return on investment in a matter of months.
Not to mention the assumed continuation of the older car's value, which ought not decrease much over that span of time. Heck, if gas goes up any more, this economical car might even increase in value.
Of course, many people are not as fortunate (or far-sighted) as we are, and the idea of scraping up even $800 is too much for people who are over-extended and getting clobbered by high gas prices. Still, if you can afford to yank some money from your savings account, this might be the time to scour the want ads for a car that can save you money in your weekly gas expenditures.
