Pros

Best looking car GM has ever built, some people complain about squeaks and rattles and this would upset me, but one minor noise in the steering column that goes away when the car warms up.  Fast and handles well and will handle much better when you get rid of those Goodyears.  Gas mileage, 22-23 city, 33-34 highway when doing the speed limit.  Still get 28-30 between 70-85 highway.  My friends own vehicles over $100,000.00 and I get more interest and praise for my car, it drives them nuts.  Update, after 30,000 miles the only thing I had to do to the car is change the oil.  Since the car is 5 yrs. old, I flushed the brake lines and the radiator.  That's it for now, happy motoring.

Cons

Getting in and out and a lack of storage, that's it.

Awesome — I am glad they did not make a lot of these cars because my car gets rarer and rarer every day. I have owned 25 cars and none have made me any happier than this one, it's not even close.

Pros

It handles well and it's gorgeous.

Cons

I wouldn't avoid it for this reason, but obviously it doesn't accelerate as fast as a 6-cylinder. Also, it doesn't have a backseat or very much trunk space.

It May Not Be Practical For Everyone, But I Like Being In Love With My Car Again! — I absoluely love this car. I missed being able to throw my foot down without holding back! I mean, without getting tickets. Ah, the joys of a 4-cylinder. I also missed having a convertible, even though I hardly ever use that particular function. I like having the option. To answer the questions asked, acceleration is less than in a Mustang (my previous car), obviously, but braking and handling are amazing. It hasn't needed repairs, or even gas, since I started driving it, because I haven't had it very long. Cost of ownership is actually slightly less than a Mustang. As far as appearance, it is absolutely gorgeous, and in my new favorite car color which I think of as melancholic blue (sorry, but I don't have the acutal manual, which would probably tell me the real name of the color!). And yes, it's great fun to drive!

Pros

Excellent performance, eye-catching looks

Cons

Limited storage, unrefined interior.

Top-down Summer Fun — Performance is exceptional - much quicker than comparable models from BMW and Mercedes. Mechanically very sound so far, with no issues whatsoever. Interior quality is slightly below what you might expect, although sound system is excellent. Lack of storage is an issue for overnight trips. A very fun car to drive overall. Drive one before you buy a more expensive model.

Good If You Like That Kind Of Thing... — Performed well, acceleration was fair until the turbo spooled. brakes very well and handles okay, i was expecting better. interior needs a serious design change in that the shifter sits so high up too long driving will make your arm go numb from lack of blood circulation. it looks good, though. the car shifts like a dream. it is so positive its insane.

Cool Little Car — I think that this car is what it was designed for "Fun". Its a car that you can jump in and go without worry of it breaking down. I get about 31 mpg and feel the road as im driving. I like that there are after market parts still available for this car. It wouldnt take much to get this 4 cyclinder over 300HP. I think GM hit a home run when they came out with the Sky redline.

Pros

Love almost everything about this car. It is a sports car with only 2 seats.  Very fast for such a small engine.  2.0 liter but turbo charged. Easy to upgrade also. Check trifecta for cheap 30 to 50 add on HP. For real not a cheap rip off chip. Love the car. I have bought 2 cars via car guru in the past 3 months. Great way to find a deal.

Cons

No cabin storage,  virtually no trunk especially when top is down. Older technology but it is an 08 after all. It is a large go kart and who doesn't love go karts.

Small 2 Seat Sports Car Or Large Very Fast Go Kart. — I love this car just know that it is a toy. Not a family car with only 2 seats but you know that. It is a blast. Wish it had a little more storage space but I can live with that. It is a man's dream and a head turner. Ladies you will love it too.

Fun To Drive — This car is so much fun to drive, but only with the top down. The turbo gives this 4 cylinder plenty of power. Turn heads constantly and always getting complemented at the gas station. People can't believe it is a Saturn.

Fast..... — the car gives you attitude!!! sometimes you cant help but to accelerate when changing lanes. always hoping to be first in line at the red light. it is a very nice car. the tires are expensive so keep the traction control on...it will save you some bucks on tires.

Best Orphan Car Yet. — It's just too bad when GM gets on the right track with a true roadster that the life is so short-lived and it ends all too soon. This engine, suspension, and brake package made it a really thrilling car to drive and it looks great, too.
