Pros: "Great gas millage, reliable, GREAT cabin airfilter"

Cons: "repairs needed were covered by recall"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car is one of the best cars I have owned. It is too bad that GM decided to discontinue the Saturn line. This car has been very reliable, with very little repairs needed. I love the OnStar. This is a great car for anyone, who doesn't want to worry about unexpected repairs, and OnStar is always there to help if emergency help is needed. The gas millage is great. In short, "I love my Saturn"."

"This car does have back doors that only can be opened by a lever in the inside of the rear doors. Back seats fold down for additional hauling space."

"This is the second Saturn I have driven. It handles great, has a sleek look, and is everything I wanted in it. I have not had to do anything to the car other than its regular oil and tire changes. I know some people talk badly about Saturn but they have run great for me so far."

"This was my car for junior and senior year of high school. AWESOME CAR. everyone loved it and thought it was more expensive then it looked. sounds great when you drive, its alright in the snow. but good for sliding around in a parking lot cause of its long stance. ;) the clutch is as smooth as a honda civics'. great car overall."
