Alas, Poor Saturn. I Knew It Well. — This car has been fun and functional. But I have to admit, the good deals I find are often weird -- in this case, backwards doors, plastic shell and non-union shop -- and Americans don't go for weird so much. Moo! Try to think outside the sedan, people!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It looks great, is fun to drive, has a surprising amount of space for its size, gets good mileage, and body won't rust (is plastic).

Cons: Saturn went out of business.

Not Worth It. — Its a cute little car, but has wayyyy to many problems. It makes so many noises and theres a problem with it every other day. Its good on gas, and gets me from point A-B most times though so no real huge complaints. I definitely paid to much for its quality though.

Pros: Its kidna cute and has pretty good gas mileage.

Cons: Too many things break, and get messed up.

Absolutly Love My New Car — I wasn't sure what to buy, the sales guy asked me what I wanted and I made it very clear I didnt want to spend a lot of money but needed something good and reliable and sporty would be GREAT! So this IS the perfect car for me! Fun-stylish - economical - JUST PERFECT

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the style of the car

Cons: Just wish the doors were remote lock

Saturn Ion 3 Coupe — The suicide doors are sick. It has a pretty sweet sunroof. It has weird, but good looking mirrors. There are also a few more blind spots than normal cars. It has a small front end which is nice. It drives amazing and turns beautifully. However I still don't get why the alarm goes off when I open it with my key and not the remote. Kind of pointless to even put a key hole.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sunroof Baby

Cons: A few blond spots. More than normal cars.

Great First Car! — It was my first car so of course i'll always love it! Very underrated car, doesn't get enough looks.

Pros: great handling, brakes, decent look, comfortable, lots of room for sports compact.

Cons: acceleration could be better... but Ion-Redline is much better i had a stock

Poor Fit And Finish — OK for a commuter or a first car. Handles well in rain and snow. Not comfortable for passengers in long drives. (4+hrs).

Pros: It's American made. Drivers seat is comfortable for persons with long legs/arms.

Cons: Poor door lip design, seats get wet when you open a door when it's raining. Interior plastics get dinged and marked to easily.
