Super car!

I've actually owned two of these cars (a 2001 and 2002). I've used one as a regular car, just going to school and work. The gas mileage is incredible. I average about 35-37mpg, even though it says 29/36. The other I have been very rough with, carrying heavy loads, filling up the backseat/trunk with machinery, liquids, etc. I've not had a single problem out of either. Mechanically, they are super little cars. The third door is a nice feature for someone who plans to haul people or things a lot.

I have a Saturn SC2, purchased for my daughter 3 years ago (With 143,000 miles on it!). I have been driving it, as she is in college and not allowed to have a car her freshman year. I absolutely love it!! It is comfortable to drive, gets incredible gas mileage, and it is really cute. I get 40 mpg on the highway! I am currently looking for another one for me, as she'll be needing hers soon. I have four Mustangs, but this little Saturn is my daily driver! (Currently 175K on the SC2 - and still runing strong.

My first was a 1996 white SC2.. Loved it so much that when it got totaled in an accident I purchased another. A 2002 red one. I am a fan of the stick shift (they both are) The stick made it fun to drive and felt sporty. I was very happy with the reliability of this car, started every time, never had any problems with them. The ONLY reason I traded it in was because being at the age of 50+ I found it difficult to get in and out of. I purchased a larger car, but I will miss my little Saturn!

Great combination of fun, practicality and economy

I've owned my 2002 SC2 almost 2 years now, and it's been a great experience! Bought it with 70k miles, and just hit 90k recently. No major problems. Great on gas (I average 24-30 with around the town driving, and up to 40 on the highway), but the motor still has plenty of pep for highway driving and passing slow pokes. It's no Porsche but I have fun driving it around curvy roads, she handles really well!! It's a great looking car too, very sporty looking and also practical with the 3rd suicide door so you have the coupe look, but you can easily access the back seat if you need to. Interior comfort is adequate for front passengers. I'm 6 foot and have no problem with space. The rear seat is a bit small, but it's expected for a small coupe. I get a kick out of the number of cupholders: 6 in total, so you'll always have a place for you and your friends' beverages. Definitely a great combination of fun, practicality and good fuel economy! These cars run forever as long as you take care of them.

I own this car and it has been extremely reliable. It drives well, runs well, and looks great! The main con for the car has to be the small seats, which I suppose comes with having a small sports car. They could be more comfortable, though.

SC2

by from Ashtabula, Oh on July 3, 2006

I found the interior comfartable as well as stylish. Its handling could use some work but it has a good throttle response.

I bought my SC2 new back in '02 while I was in college, granted it's not a flashy car, BUT in the seven years I've owned it it hasn't broken down a single time. It's a small car, I'm 5'9 and it's ok for me in the front seat but I hate sitting in the back. This car was victim to a pretty major highway traffic accident a few years back and the HP officer told me that had I not been in a Saturn (with it's plastic body), the force of impact would have broken all the windows and been much worse for me than it was. Knowing that my little blue car will always start when I need it to is a big relief for a single gal living alone on the west coast... I'm VERY sad to be seeing the Saturn brand closed down.

I bought mine over 2 years ago with only 32,000 miles on it. It gets good mileage and more than enough get up and go without worrying about getting tickets all the time. Not rusting is also a good point seeing as I am in the northeast. It has been a nice little car for me but I am thankful I do not have to carry passengers in back seat often as they are very small. I still love the looks of the car and have been satisfied. Main drawback is finding some parts that have to be Saturn parts as some cannot be just generic parts.

I beat up the repo man to keep this car

by from Kansas on November 10, 2006

This car is my baby. I have a sun roof on my car so in the summer, thats used more than my windows. The gas mileage is very helpful because I like to travel.
