Pros

No blind spots, Easy to maintain (I change my own oil), simple car. My car came with a CD player which was a plus when I was looking for a car. It has manual windows which is fine.

Cons

Going up hills, The engine can be loud at about 70. Leg room in the back but I don't sit back there.

My First Car. — Very underrated car. With the right modifications the car can look great. The interior is ok also. Has stitched floor mats. Soft touch materials. The car is fun to modify and add to. Doing an engine swap would be interesting. Get wider tires also for handling.

Pros

Great little car, it got me from point a to point b. just kept up with oil changes and did a tune up.

Cons

the oil consumption was an issue, always kept a quart of oil in my car.

2,545

The Saturn That Could — not a bad car, didn't have any major mechanical issues until the very end. I needed a new clutch and the repair cost more than the car. gas mileage was great. since it was a manual it was fun to drive.

Saturn Sc2 Bored — My car has good mileage and I used to think that it was cute but I'm just sick of it. It's the only car I've ever owned and it's starting to burn oil a lot, as well as having a broken sunroof and having other minor issues. It's an automatic so I can never really do that much to it as far as engine upgrades and I had a system in it for a while but the wiring and electric setup in the car couldn't handle it for longer than a few years.

Pros

Excellent gas mileage, very low maintenance. Keep the oil changed and they run forever

Cons

When they get into the higher mileage, they burn about a quart of oil between oil changes

Smart Economical Buy — I like that the rear seats fold down and my dog can ride in the back. Great on gas mileage and maintenance. Most maintenance is routine like brakes. Most things you can fix your self or grab parts from junk yard. This is my second. The first one was my Moms, then mine then my sisters. This is my second and I haven't had any maintenance issues. It's a 5spd so even more gas savings!

Pros

Handles great. very spacious trunk. Very good on gas. Comfortable ride on bumpy roads.

Cons

Not much room for passengers in the back seat.
Not a bad reaction speed for a 4-cyclinder but could be better.

My "sports Car" — Handles nice in any weather. spacious trunk. Not the best performance car but can get up and go when needed.

dont have any

All Around You Get Good Fuel Economy And With Some $ Could Have Better Performance — I hope to someday put a bodykit on my Sati, not sure which brand yet, and lower the ride height maybe 1to1half inches, fog lights up front blue in color, im thinking some american racing rims 16 or 17 inchers.. and either black painted rims or blue or red.. as far as under the hood.. im thinking cold air intake and maybe some other modest performance upgrades.. nothing too fancy.. and definitely wanta upgrade the exhaust all the way from the headers back.. maybe put a dual exhaust system.. definitely tint the windows all around.. and some inside upgrades.. new front seats new stereo and speakers.. maybe a modest amp and sub system.. new gauges in the dash definitely..

Pros

the gas mileage

Cons

made out of plastic

25

Decent — its made out of plastic and not to last. it accellerates ok, but not when you hacve 13" wheels, the interior is nice, but thebackseat looks cramped (it isnt, just looks that way). its afordable if you keep up the maintenance. its not a thrill seeker, but it gets around.

Pros

Great handling, breaking, low maintenance, nice features

Cons

Could use more hp and a good spoiler

45

Great Car, Great Performance, If Only They Had Dropped A V6! — Breaking is amazing, it could easily send someone through the windshield, lol the handling is really tight, it's got a sport tuned suspension, acceleration isn't bad at all, you really don't wanna mod it too much performance wise because it is front wheel drive but it could gain a lot from a power/torque boost. I also have installed a sunroof, all leather interior and i'm starting work on the exterior.

A Different Kind Of Car — it accelerates, brakes, handles. good build quality. no repairs needed. no squeaks/rattles. nice interior and exterior styling. great gas mileage, low cost to maintain. this car is fun to drive. the 3rd door makes it easy to load and unload stuff in the back seat.
