Pros

This car has been very reliable, handles well enough, and achieves respectable fuel economy.  It even looks better than average in my opinion.

Cons

Gas tank has a filter in it which disrupts the flow of fuel to the engine when the level is 1/8 of a tank.  Don't wait for the low fuel indicator to come on before re-filling, else you can't start the car !

Reliable Family Sedan — Performance as been better than expected. It has a 3 litre V6 (basically a SAAB unit), and offers good acceleration and fuel economy. Handling is somewhat European as its its based on Opel Vectra underpinings. Disc brakes front & back. Build quality is OK, as far as fit and finish are concerned. So far its been reliable. Bought it with about 34K on the odometer, but it now has about 86K. Had one major repair under warranty, and the rest has just been routine maintenance. Appearance is OK. Interior is a mixture of budget and class. Exterior is average, and maybe slightly attractive. Gas mileage has been better than expected. Summertime, I get about 24 mpg city, and 33-35 mpg highway depending on average speed. Maintenance for the most part amount to $200/year over 3 visits. If you shutoff the traction control, its little more fun. With the TC on, it absolutely does not let the tires slip. Handles pretty good on the highway.

A Poster Icon Dedicated To All The Reasons Gm Is Going Under. — I cannot adequately describe how bad this car is. Constantly goes into reduced power mode, interior falling apart, constant random shutdowns when driving, burns 4 quarts of oil a month, three collapsed cats, has gone through one battery a year, OD stopped working around 56K miles. Saturn wants me to "re-think American"; I did and will never buy another American brand again. Simply put: What is the difference between an '04 Saturn L300 with 350K miles? Answer: I can depend on the Toyota to start, run and get me where I need to be without involving AAA. Five more payments then Alpha Mike Foxtrot Saturn...Welcome to the family new Toyota.

Luxary Car — The only thing that I don't like about it is that it is really heavy. Hurts acceleration. The transmission is really sloppy. It only makes less than 20 miles per gallon from a V6
