"#1 - GREAT GAS MILEAGE!!! Next, it's Very reliable. Normal maintenance is very easy, and parts are cheap! Mine is not the most comfortable (no P/S, P/W, P/L). But that's just less to go wrong. And HANDLING!! It sticks to the road! With snow tires in winter, I could climb a mountain on ICE! (OK, a little exaggeration) I always felt safe in this car!!!"

"I have had this car since 1999 when I bought it brand new. It has been a real good driveable car rearly would brake down. The only annoying thing I disliked about this car is the tires. Saturn decided to be different and make the rims so unique so its hard to find them aftermarket. They really want you to go back to them to buy there tires. Which at the time were pricey. I finally found a place that carried them for cheap 100.00 ea rather than 400.00 elsewhere (saturn). Other than that this car has lasted a long time.."

Pros: "Reliable, low maintenance, good value"

Cons: "Seats do not provide good lumbar support"

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

"I bought foreign cars for years as I was dissatisfied with the quality of American-made vehicles but decided to take a chance on the Saturn. It was the best decision I ever made when choosing a car. Obviously, I have low mileage, which is a plus, but the vehicle still gets equal or better gas mileage than the newer, "improved" cars. Haven't had any major repairs outside of the usual wear and tear issues and regular maintenance except for the air conditioning, which gave out about two years ago. This car has been a Godsend for anyone living in the snowbelt of central New York. It handles well under all types of conditions and, of course, the body can't be beat when it comes to road salt and rust. Of course, the Saturn line was too well made to be profitable for GM to continue producing them--just another sad fact of modern life."
