Pros

Great fuel mileage. Fun car to toss around on the weekends/on the way to work. Perky acceleration.

Cons

No dome light. Fuel cap door switch. Lack of upgrades. Chevy 350 doesn't fit under the hood.

Fun Car — I got the car used for $5000, mainly I was looking for any vehicle that was red and had a manual. Even though I have owned it for less than a year the car and I have been through a lot. Currently I have it in the shop getting a new engine. The bearing between the rod and crankshaft shattered. Overall, not bad, I'm a thick guy and 6 foot barefoot and with my boots its a little more, which inches matters in this car, the roof is low, but I have been on a few road trips that were around 5 hours in the car and I didn't notice any more fatigue than when I have been in other vehicles. Good Car, good deal for what I paid.

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.

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.

2,725

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
