    Best Orphan Car Yet. — It's just too bad when GM gets on the right track with a true roadster that the life is so short-lived and it ends all too soon. This engine, suspension, and brake package made it a really thrilling car to drive and it looks great, too.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Great engineering and performance with 5-speed.

    Cons: A little cramped for a guy 6'5"

    Uwould Buy This Again Any Day Of The Week. — One of the best cars we have ever owned - an absolute head turner. Strong performance - acceleration is exhilarating. No build quality issues - although we only put 11K miles on this car. Appearance - One of the best looking cars ever made. This was a win for GM. Then they stopped making them. *Sigh* Cost of ownership: Takes premium fuel, but the gas mileage was quite good for a sports car - high 20's Fun Factor - just a blast to drive, cruise and be seen in. 10 out of 10.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Performance, a sure head turner on the boulevard.

    Cons: Not a daily driver - you arent going to carry any groceries in this!

    It May Not Be Practical For Everyone, But I Like Being In Love With My Car Again! — I absoluely love this car. I missed being able to throw my foot down without holding back! I mean, without getting tickets. Ah, the joys of a 4-cylinder. I also missed having a convertible, even though I hardly ever use that particular function. I like having the option. To answer the questions asked, acceleration is less than in a Mustang (my previous car), obviously, but braking and handling are amazing. It hasn't needed repairs, or even gas, since I started driving it, because I haven't had it very long. Cost of ownership is actually slightly less than a Mustang. As far as appearance, it is absolutely gorgeous, and in my new favorite car color which I think of as melancholic blue (sorry, but I don't have the acutal manual, which would probably tell me the real name of the color!). And yes, it's great fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It handles well and it's gorgeous.

    Cons: I wouldn't avoid it for this reason, but obviously it doesn't accelerate as fast as a 6-cylinder. Also, it doesn't have a backseat or very much trunk space.

    I Love My Saturn Vue — I love my Vue, first it is a zippy and cute SUV. It has heated seats and auto start. For the price it was the perfect car for me. When i need pick up it is there. It is really good in the snow and slippery roads even though it isn't all wheel drive. I love the onstar that always tells me if there is a problem with the car and also lowers my auto insurance. The service dept at Saturn is like no other. They are courteous and fast. They have a comfortable waiting area with fresh cookies,popcorn and pop and bottled water all for free. If the problem will take long, they set you up with a loaner car for free. All in all, I would highly recommend a Saturn to anyone.

    Pros: Alot of car for a small price

    Cons: Can't think of any

    Top-down Summer Fun — Performance is exceptional - much quicker than comparable models from BMW and Mercedes. Mechanically very sound so far, with no issues whatsoever. Interior quality is slightly below what you might expect, although sound system is excellent. Lack of storage is an issue for overnight trips. A very fun car to drive overall. Drive one before you buy a more expensive model.

    Pros: Excellent performance, eye-catching looks

    Cons: Limited storage, unrefined interior.

    Bleh — The handling of the car was alright, accel was very sub par. Not at all good for a 40+k car. The interior styling was terrible because of the cheap materials. The car, despite its many cons, it very fun to drive. I would reccomend it to a rich person.....

    Pros: Nice to look at?

    Cons: Build quality

    Good If You Like That Kind Of Thing... — Performed well, acceleration was fair until the turbo spooled. brakes very well and handles okay, i was expecting better. interior needs a serious design change in that the shifter sits so high up too long driving will make your arm go numb from lack of blood circulation. it looks good, though. the car shifts like a dream. it is so positive its insane.

    Pros: VERY positive shifter

    Cons: didnt leave me dying for one

    Love Of My Life — This car is by far the BEST poor man's roadster. I will own one in about a year. You will not believe how well it drives and hugs the road, don't try to play "corners" while cornering, it won't work, the car stays level the entire time! CRAZY!

    Pros: Everything, it is a masterpiece

    Cons: Not a SINGLE thing!

    Small 2 Seat Sports Car Or Large Very Fast Go Kart. — I love this car just know that it is a toy. Not a family car with only 2 seats but you know that. It is a blast. Wish it had a little more storage space but I can live with that. It is a man's dream and a head turner. Ladies you will love it too.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Love almost everything about this car. It is a sports car with only 2 seats.  Very fast for such a small engine.  2.0 liter but turbo charged. Easy to upgrade also. Check trifecta for cheap 30 to 50 add on HP. For real not a cheap rip off chip. Love the car. I have bought 2 cars via car guru in the past 3 months. Great way to find a deal.

    Cons: No cabin storage,  virtually no trunk especially when top is down. Older technology but it is an 08 after all. It is a large go kart and who doesn't love go karts.
