Sleeper Granny Car — quick, agile, great mpgs. slightly modified easy to build if you research. comfortable ride. smooth shifting and good clutch response. easy and cheap to repair any thing that breaks and it does not catch the wrong attention at first glance if you know what i mean...

Pros

Excellent gas mileage and reliable. Repair costs always seemed fair.

Cons

Had to make one major repair to replace transmission. Also had to replace a/c compressor.

Reliable And Efficient — This was my first financed car. I was always happy with it, and it never left me stranded anywhere. I like the look of it, as it's an economical car, yet has a sporty look. It doesn't accelerate as quickly as some higher powered cars, so I do have to make sure I've got room before pulling out onto the road. The pro to this is that it has forced me to be a more careful driver, which should be happening anyway.

Love My Car — Anyone who knows me realizes how much I love this car, and here is the skinny on the SC2... Its acceleration is quick but there could be a little bit more from it, braking is overall very responsive and having the 4 wheel ABS with traction control does wonders in a minnesota winter. I have not done too much with this vehicle other than change the oil every 3000 miles, the only repairs i have done are, the hand brake, which didnt work when i got it, it needs to have a new line cuz the driver side one is split, over all this vehicle is by far the best one I have ever owned

The Saturn Is The Best Car On The Market — The Saturn cars have been God sent to people that have safety in mind and it is made for the people that love American made cars. It is a shame that GM thinks that taking the Saturn cars away and deleting jobs will increase their sales rates. I have had the opportunity to have 2 Saturns and they are the best car for safety and money there is. I can vouch for the safety in a accident being hit broadsided and came away walking with very minor injuries...I have yet to see this in any other car GM or any other Maker puts out.

Pros

Great fuel economy.  Looks attractive.  Very reliable.

Cons

Low to the ground, making it difficult to get in/out of.  Back seat is only for kids.  Engine a little weak when paired with automatic tranny.  Looks sportier than it handles.

Solid Little Car — Performance is just OK. Breaking is good mainly due to the light weight of the vehicle. Handling is average. Aceleration is not great. The 1.9 litre I4 is buzzy, not quick revving. Transmission is automatic, and lazy shifting. A manual tranny would have likely been better. Build quality is OK. Body is plastic so it resists denting, and won't rust. Interior is a bit noisy, likely a lack of sound deadening. More econo than luxo or sporty. Appearance is good overall. Exterior looks sporty and aerodynamic. Interior is all black, and looks OK. Should wear well over time. Gas milage is great ! In summertime, I average 33 mpg city, and get between 43-49 mpg on the hwy. Maintenance has been very impressive. I got the car with 54K on the odometer, and it now has around 99K. Only needed oil changes so far. Spend less than $100/year on regular maintenance. This car is not so much fun-to-drive. Its basically good at getting you from point A to B at a low cost. Sporty looks, but very "economy" in its execution. Not great for long highway trips as its a little cramped, and lack luxury.

Pros

Great Gas Mileage, Decent Comfort

Cons

Saturns don't exist anymore

75

Not Bad, Saturn, Not Bad. — Everything is pretty good. Acceleration is pretty slow, I mean it's got like 99 horses because it's more for gas mileage and being eco-friendly than it is about drag-racing. The outer appearance isn't too bad .. It's a coupe, looks decent, but is still a Saturn. All in All it's not bad.

Car To Avoid — The car is older and doesn't handle well with age. Once over around 90,000 miles, the car started to break down constantly. We have constant leaks, and bumpy rides. I wouldn't recommend the car if you have any other options at all.
