I bought this car new in November of 2000. No frills, wouldn't be comfortable for a big guy (I am 5'8), but I could not have been happier with a small car. For seven full years the car was entirely problem free, regular maintenance was only expenditure. In the last couple of years I have changed a transmission sensor, the radiator fan, and done brake jobs and a new battery and tires - but it keeps on ticking. The car is driven in Chicago, gets good mileage, is fun to drive on road trips. I really am bummed about the death of Saturn. The concept made car ownership easy, and the vehicle has been a great little pal. I would get another of these in a flash, but alas, no more. Yeah, RIP Saturn.
Very reliable and fun to drive. Excellent AC and heat system, gret mileage. Cute, no frills, basic little car.
