Anybody have experience with the Opel 3.0l engine in the Saturn LW300? I’m asking because a friend of mine is in the market for a cheap/practical/reliable boring car, and we found a nice looking Saturn wagon. Robert is a Van man at heart, with his first car being a Chrysler T&C named Baby. But he’s also a single guy who likes to travel and visit friend so a minivan with minivan MPG, and price tag doesn’t really make sense for him(I’m honestly surprised how well minivans hold their value). So a wagon seems a good compromise.

I want to help him make a good choice, and that means something that’s not going to empty his pockets every other month. So should I dodge this bullet or is a good one?
