"I didn't know these cars even existed until I saw it the dealer's lot. We were looking for an SUV for my wife. When I saw the excellent body styling comparable to much higher-end midsize cars, high performance motor and suspension, 6 speed paddle shift auto trans, power leather heated seats, power moon roof, 5 CD changer, 18" aluminum wheels w/low profile tires and remote start, I bought it on the spot and got a flaming deal. Then I drove it. Wow!! It really moves and handles. I've had it 5 years and it's still worth $5000 more than I owe. Very little maintenance and it still looks current. This is the way cars ought to be, good looking, high fun, low maintenance and low cost. If Saturn had introduced these cars a few years earlier maybe they wouldn't have gone out of business."

it's a great car,i enjoyed driving it a lot.

Pros: "quick car due to large engine and small body style"

Cons: "Paint flaking off in interior and rarely outside"

"Reasonably well performing car, the 3.5 V6 has plenty of pick up, and the body style is still stylish by today's standards. Gas mileage is average for a big V6, and the car's interior is fairly cheap like that found on many GM cars. But overall value is good. The price was right, and the car has been very reliable with minimal service (mostly oil changes, which are super-easy to do yourself on this car, and fluid top-offs). The car's rotors were not engineered to be adequate on the front in my estimate. I went through 2 sets of rotors on the front tires because of constant warpage. I finally purchased a higher end rotor with pre-drilled/slotted characteristics and it's been fine ever since."
