    Its A Fail — Yea, this care really sucks, i wouldnt ever ask anyone to buy it. its okay at first, but then it falls apart and just fails on you. Its actually fun to drift in in the snow, thats about all its good for.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Drifing in the snow

    Cons: Sucks

    Don't Come Here Looking For Speed, But Its A Fun Car — For an economy car, its is really reliable and has surprised a few people. The twin cam motor is pretty quick, but not fast. It is ridiculously fun to drive and handles great. The paint is mint and the interior is clean and has power everything. I have done a few things: short ram intake, 16x7.5 5 spoke wheels and summer tires, full stereo and MTX sub, with a catback exhaust on the way. I know its not fast by any means, but it whips most civics and accords, and is a lot of fun.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Acceleration and potential

    Good. — Like that it's reliable, has good gas mileage, gets me from point A to point B, and actually accelerates unlike my previous car. Don't like the fact that the tape player doesn't work. (it's all radio for me) It's no 1986 Bonneville.=/

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good Car. Long-lasting.

    Cons: ugly. lol.

    Saturn...the Car That Never Dies.... — Built to last....end of story. Mines a 5 speed manual, so thats what makes it more fun to drive. Nothing has ever gone wrong with it. It has 146 k and all original except for cat. Its a 1.9 ltr SOHC. i WISH it was the DOHC (dual overhead cam) but alas. Its a very solid car, body is solid. 32-39 mpg, and basic maintence required (oil change, spark plug change, fuel system maintence, radiator flush, clutch fluid change, brake fluid change, etc etc.)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a 5 speed manual?

    Cons: Its a 1.9 ltr....
