It was the first car I ever owned, and i loved it... until problems started stacking up on it. the front right knuckle gave out on me first, then the engine and trans followed. It didn't help with the costs any that Saturn parts are hard to find.
The interior is a bit odd and there really is no room to put people in the back seat. The whole layout of the car is strange, it is awkward and cramped.
I always told people that it is a great car, when it works properly though.
Either way, it was my first car and i loved it but it just leeched money from me every chance it got.

This car is the greatest car that I have ever owned. It gets great gas mileage. 39 mpg. It is fast and sporty. I love the sunroof, does not leak. I replaced a motor mount at 100,000 miles but that is to be expected. Very cute I have the bright yellow one. Paint still looks new after 7 years. Love the 3rd door with the kids. Overall I say just a great car!

I had this car for about two years now and i love it. It's a fun little car to drive, easy to handle. Its sporty and good looking, interior is good also. Great on gas, I get around 30mpg and it has 88k. Its fast acceleration and braking stops pretty good. It is very reliable and I think is a great overall car.

Car had incredible gas mileage, at 70mph, averaged 39mpg. Decent power output compared to its competition. Amenities galore. Although their "no haggle pricing" seemed to change greatly when I walked off with a check and no car the first time.

We bought this car with 26,000 miles and have pretty much regreted it within the first year (several problems, including transmission failure just past warranty). Last chapter was written this week when engine went (rod) after 72,000 miles. My family and I have had numerous GM products over the years, but this is it....Japanese all the way now.
