Good Work Car

Pros: Low Maintenance, Reliable, Good Gas Mileage CONS: Low to ground, Hard to get in and out of Owned this vehicle for over a year, Bought it for KBB.com Value. Happy with purchase.



This is my first car and it gets me where I need to go. Perfect amount of room and nice interior. Its had a few fixes but still runs great.


Still rolling

16 1/2 years.Only true cost is oil change. On average less than $200 a year to maintain. No rust because exterior is plastic.


Really reliable car

had this car for only 8 months. bought it with 105,xxx miles on it. great gas mileage. couple basic problems . but nothing that wasn't under 20 bucks to fix. definitely the most reliable car i have owned


tough car

been in the ditch many mANY times. been rolled twice still going strong and only replaced windshield. good power as well. has been passed down through the family


Good transportation

Good Inexpensive transportation. Easy to fix, cheap to repair, good on gas. overall nice daily drive.


great little car..

a consumers report best buy...its sporty and economical..just needs TLC now and then..you could do far worse!!


This great car saved my life!

I would have preferred the power window buttons to be on the door as in other cars. I'm not sure why they put them in the middle. You get used to them being there, though. I got hit from the side and I was fine, not even a scratch. They had to pull off the car door to get me out, but I walked out. I have had 3 Saturns and love them!


Safest Car I ever Owned

It was the safety features of this car that saved my 11 day old baby in a frontal crash. It was a great car from start to finish. The only problems I had with this car was the window washer switch. Other than that what a Great Car!! KC


Ok Vechicle

Have had this car for 8 yrs and has held on quite well. Easy to repair on own rather than taking to shop.
