I last drove one of these in 2002. I like simple low tech cars, so I had no complaints about this model. They should have continued them.

Gas Saver With A 3rd Door! — Great car for the most part, good build quality but they used some cheaper parts to build it with. Its kinda rough on the transmission shifts sometimes but pretty smooth for an entry level car etc. Boxy handling not that great or smooth but she will go where u want just not as nice as my 2002 Pontiac Firebird can.

Pros: Easy on the gas!

Cons: boxy handling

Great Little Car — goes through a lot of oil (not a leak), can kick when going from drive to reverse (have heard others with this issue with the same model, handling is not that great... overall i am very please with the car!

Pros: very reliable, rarely has issues, great on gas, cheap maintenance costs, not an eye sore to look at, no blind spots

Cons: goes through a lot of oil (not a leak), can kick when going from drive to reverse (have heard others with this issue with the same model, handling is not that great

The Best I Have Ever Owned! — I LOVE Saturn Coupes. Not fond of the Sedans or SUV! But to me this was the most affordable car, back when they first came out, and even now. I would take (buy) a ten year old Saturn...before getting a new car of any make given to me for free! Saturns are very safe, fuel efficient and fun to drive. I love the third door behind the driver side. It make loading groceries or "Mall buys" really easy! Looks sharp and fast! Very Sporty! I REALLY LOVE mine! I am selling my Gold one, because I just got my favorite Silver one! So if you want a great car...buy my Gold one!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is my 5th Saturn. They are the most reliable, economic and sharpest looking cars, I have ever had. I wish that Saturn would have continued with the coupes!

Cons: This is not for a family of 5! It has comfortable room for 4! But to exceed that would be very cramped.

Love My Saturn — If Saturn still made cars like this, I would continue to buy them. The handling, fuel efficiency and reliability of this car has been the best I have ever driven until now. I thoroughly enjoyed driving the SC2 and it is a car definitely worth owning.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable car, outstanding fuel efficiency for the available power.  Car handles like a dream, turn radius is very good.

Cons: Not well suited for car seats

Mini-tank With Power — Purchased this car about 8 years ago; was a bargain at around $1k under KBB, and 17k miles on it. Now, it's at nearly 110k miles, with only about $3k in major repairs over its life, with the original clutch and trans intact. Some issues I've had include: trunk light missing- irreplacable; backup lights have never worked (though I don't think my mechanic really looked at them); trunk release has never worked; manual transmission linkage bushing failed, necessitating $100 in shop fees (simply to have it diagnosed), though I repaired it myself for $20 (ebay is amazing); driver's seat is slowly falling apart; the interior feels cheap (well, it IS plastic, so yeah); limited options for upgrading. Overall, it's been an amazing vehicle. I currently commute from the desert back to LA every other weekend, sometimes more, due to family needs and visiting my girlfriend, and it handles every trip like a champ. It's not the most powerful engine, but I've dropped it into a lower gear on more than one occasion to speed past a truck or avoid a collision, and it's never left me wanting.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small, agile, decent power curve

Cons: Floor-mats interfere with pedals, at times; can be sluggish on the throttle; Minor engine issues can add up (over/under revving while idling)

Reliable Vehicle — First, I must at admit this is my husband's car so personally I don't drive this one that often. He loves his stationwagon and always has the back full of stuff. This car has been very good on repairs and usually costs less to repair than our other cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of cargo room

Cons: Little tight in the front seats/shoulder room

Great Car For High School Kids And A To And From Work Car — Great car. It gets great gas mileage for being a manual transmission. I have had to do some work to it due to the A/C going out. But for having over 100000 miles on it it is still going strong.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great on gas milage

Cons: none

Easy To Maintain Reliable Economically Efficent American Car! — Great simple CAR, not much more than we need. The Saturn is easy and cheap to maintain, have owned several and enjoy caring for them. Nothing to sporting or fancy but it gets you where you need to be, not a performance car but its fun to drive around town and commute in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy

Cons: if looking for luxury, more options
