    Good Car! — Looks good, nice color, not your typical gold Saturn with tan interior. It's only a 4-banger, but it's got enough oomph to get you going. It is inexpensive to repair. There was only one prob when I bought it and it was covered under warranty and is all good now!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's affordable and still looks good!

    Cons: Saturn is going under....

    Pretty....pretty Good — It doesn't allow itself to be totaled out with over $10,000 worth of damage - but I didn't die or get hurt, so I suppose that's pretty good. And! It's still the current body style, so nobody has to know it's not new.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas milage

    Cons: You have to have mechanics reset the change oil indicator

    My Saturn — I actually really love this car. Out of all the car I've owned, it runs the best, it has the get up and go, it's not really that expensive...just don't stick your hand out the window while you're going 70, you'll swerve.

    Pros: great accelleration, fun to drive, runs well, easy on gas

    Cons: really really small

    Saturn Ions Suck — This car sucks in the winter. The front end is always falling apart replaced both sway bar links twice and swing arm control bushings twice. I only have 32,000 miles on it. I dont think the quality of this car is very good. The oinly plus side is all that is under warranty so far. Gas mileage is good 31-34 mpg.

    Pros: good gas milage

    Cons: front end falls apart

    Fantastic Car That Is Fun And Easy To Drive. — Pedals are not too touchy and not to stiff, steering is perfect, it is easy to see out of, it is a nice size, and it looks great.

    Pros: Everything.

    Cons: Nothing.

    Love This Car! — I have had this car since December 2005, it had 137km on it when I got the keys (after being driven down to me from the Fredericton dealership). The only con I could even think of was that the rear bumper tends to scratch, but you can get a guard added to help with that.

    Pros: rear access doors, center mounted instrument panel, performance, fuel economy, polymer body panels

    Cons: rear bumper scratches easily

    More Fun Then You Think It Is. — Its not as fast as a Mustang. But it has a ton of pep! I drive aggressively and it performs beautifully. Could use a lot less torque steering, but my overall impression is that its a fun car! I always enjoy my commute home.

    Pros: Engine is awesome, comfortable seating, great transmission

    Cons: Lots of tire noise, could heat better in the winter, a little worse on gas then expected

    Love My Ion — Bought it for mileage, keeping it because its fun to drive. Used as a commuter car (45 miles each way). reliable, good in snow or on ice Recently completed a cross-country trip and found it to be amazingly comfortable on a long drive and I packed enough stuff with me to move into my house and live comfortably for the month it will take the rest of my stuff to get here!

    Pros: room, comfort, 40mpgs!! performance is great for a small car.

    Cons: sits too low for my wife to be able to get in and out comfortably.
