I Love My Sc2 Coupe. I've Been A Proud Saturn Owner Since Day 1. — This car has surprisingly been the best used car I've ever owned. I bought it in the spring of 2008 when gas was starting to hit $4. It promised great gas mileage and it has never disappointed me in that area. I've maxed it at 38mpg on a state highway averaging 60mph. Just over 400 miles on the 12 gallon tank and there was still a little in there. Servicing(brakes, tires, etc.) has always been more than reasonable. You do want to be sure to rotate the tires front to back and never corner to corner. The rear wheels wear differently and can "chuck" over time if not swapped with front tires at least once a year. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of(and it will save your suspension). This car has great curves and a fantastic stance too. Be sure to roll with the headlights and fog lamps for maximum effect. This was the last year(2002) of the original company and the Tennessee built Saturns and you can tell a lot of pride went into it's construction. Awesome little coupe!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fun to drive, fantastic gas mileage, low maintenance, ice cold A/C, good in snow, great sound system, dent resistant, tires wear evenly even after 130k miles with little to no front end maintenance!

Cons: The rear window defroster could be a little more powerful. Headlights can get some moisture from time to time, but drop in 5-10 cilica gel beads (from a shoe box pack) and it will almost never fog up again. Keep an eye on the oil, these are known to drop a quart or two between changes, but doesn't burn. Long trips(5hours+) can take a toll on the legs if you're tall.

All Around You Get Good Fuel Economy And With Some $ Could Have Better Performance — I hope to someday put a bodykit on my Sati, not sure which brand yet, and lower the ride height maybe 1to1half inches, fog lights up front blue in color, im thinking some american racing rims 16 or 17 inchers.. and either black painted rims or blue or red.. as far as under the hood.. im thinking cold air intake and maybe some other modest performance upgrades.. nothing too fancy.. and definitely wanta upgrade the exhaust all the way from the headers back.. maybe put a dual exhaust system.. definitely tint the windows all around.. and some inside upgrades.. new front seats new stereo and speakers.. maybe a modest amp and sub system.. new gauges in the dash definitely..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: has potential with some needed cash

Cons: dont have any

It Is My Car And It Is Payed For. — I love my car. I can fit almost any thing inside when the back seats are folded down. The 3rd door also comes in handy. Fun to drive and gets on average 25 mpg combined city/highway where I drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap to buy, pretty to look at!

Cons: Chick car if you r a guy.

Car To Avoid — The car is older and doesn't handle well with age. Once over around 90,000 miles, the car started to break down constantly. We have constant leaks, and bumpy rides. I wouldn't recommend the car if you have any other options at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything

Sleeper Granny Car — quick, agile, great mpgs. slightly modified easy to build if you research. comfortable ride. smooth shifting and good clutch response. easy and cheap to repair any thing that breaks and it does not catch the wrong attention at first glance if you know what i mean...

Pros: no one else has one built

Cons: nothin

Not Bad, Saturn, Not Bad. — Everything is pretty good. Acceleration is pretty slow, I mean it's got like 99 horses because it's more for gas mileage and being eco-friendly than it is about drag-racing. The outer appearance isn't too bad .. It's a coupe, looks decent, but is still a Saturn. All in All it's not bad.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, Decent Comfort

Cons: Saturns don't exist anymore

Decent — its made out of plastic and not to last. it accellerates ok, but not when you hacve 13" wheels, the interior is nice, but thebackseat looks cramped (it isnt, just looks that way). its afordable if you keep up the maintenance. its not a thrill seeker, but it gets around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the gas mileage

Cons: made out of plastic
