    Hi. I just bought a '97 SL2 from a friend (100,000 miles) for $1000. I
    love it so far. However, it doesn't have the air conditioning option.
    Any ideas if it's possible to have a Saturn dealer install an AC unit,
    and if so, how much I should expect to pay?

    used parts will set you back about $5-600. labor will be 5 or so hours
    (more on both if the car never had A/C)

    It is always better and cheaper to buy any vehicle already equipped with all
    needed or desired features. Anything mechanical can be performed with
    enough money. I doubt that a dealer will want to perform this change and
    suspect that it would be VERY expensive due to both the wiring and control
    and other changes required. IMHO it would only be feasible as a DIY project
    IF you had a (free) donor car with working components. I WOULD NEVER

    The good thing is that you will save money on fuel. (If you do nothing.)
