Pros

Good Car. Long-lasting.

Cons

ugly. lol.

25

Good. — Like that it's reliable, has good gas mileage, gets me from point A to point B, and actually accelerates unlike my previous car. Don't like the fact that the tape player doesn't work. (it's all radio for me) It's no 1986 Bonneville.=/

Wades Car — its a 5 speed, has great get up and go, breaks work perfectly. the left backdoor needs fixed because it doesnt lock and the window doesnt roll down. it looks just fine, has 150k and is fun to drive. woo!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I Love This Car... — I like my saturn beause it is not fast..lol so i wont get many speeding tickets if any at all lol! It was very cheap for me to own even though i got it from my parents!!! I love it cause it has lots of memories in it like crazy driving with Liisa and Jen and all my other friends! The parts are cheap and the labour isnt that bad. And i worked for Saturn so i pretty much know these cars like the back of my hand !!! :) Remember this car is 13 years old!!!!

It was red

Cons

Massive Oil Burning problem

25

Join The I Hate Saturns Club — Certainly didn't live up to the ads. Burned a quart of oil every 600 miles. Saturn said the didn't understand. But if you google it - this problem is inherent with Saturns. Had a ring and valve job done at 30k but the problem came back

Effiency, looks, comfort

Quality of materials

Dylan's Saturn. — I like the fuel efficiency, and the basic look of my car. I hate how cheaply its make. Its a Saturn, so its made mostly out of plastic. The front seats have these stupid seatbelt presenters, and they break easily, and don't let the belt retract properly. Its a really fun car to drive, and its got a lot of pep for only having a 1.9L engine. The power windows are really noisy, but I love the placement of everything on the dash. It sits really low to the ground, and you feel like you're going to die when a big truck passes you. Its a very light car, so when its windy, or a gravel truck drive on the other side of the road and pass you, you're blown all over the road.

Drives good

Cons

It's a Saturn

25

It's A Saturn — It's blue with several scrathes on it from when i bought it. It runs pretty good. The interior is pretty good as well. I have to get several repairs done on it like when my third and fourth gears stoped working once. Otherwise nothing major.
