Get This For Your 16/17 Year Old. — This was my first car, and it served its purpose well enough. It's a four-banger, and it gets roughly 35 solid MPG. I've never had ANY problems with it. Never once had to tear it down and fix something. Served for 3 good years, until I wrecked it :-(.

Pros: Great gas mileage. Sporty, but not too fast (good for irresponsible teenage drivers). Sleek line. Never EVER had any engine, transmission, electric, or braking problems.

Cons: Drinks oil like a Scott through booze.

The Best Car I Ever Owned — Never had any problems besides normal wear. GREAT gas mileage while still having plenty of power. Fun to drive - it was a manual (of course). Very comfortable and sporty with great handling.

Pros: Gas mileage, appearance, size, handling, engine

Cons: discontintued in the S-series in 2001

Good Starter Car. — It was a good starter car for me when I got out of University and started to working. It had some style and Saturn was stil relatively new and so had some allure. But overall it wasnt too exciting to drive - infact bored silly.

Pros: affordable - decent style and gets you to where you want to go.

Cons: lack of power, overall feel was not solid rear seating room was very tight

A Great 'basic' Car With Amazing Dealer Service — Sparky the wonder Saturn was a great car... but he couldn't handle the roads I wanted to go on... traded in for a Jeep.

Pros: great price, service... blew away anything any of the imports had out at the time.

Cons: small.
