Bought this used when our Saturn gave
out at 30,000 miles and would cost more
to fix then it was worth. Anyway, after
8,000 miles,we like it as much as when
we test drove it. Interior parts are a
little cheap, but this is one solid
car. In fact, Saab is rebadging them.
Quality between this car and my
previous Cavalier are night and day.
AWD was a nice selling point. The
car's only getting about 23mpg
overall. After my wife's bad accident,
she came out without a scratch (going
55mph in a snowstorm in the
mountains). Snow tires will be on our
list for next winter. Front and rear
seating feels roomy for a small car,
but the cargo room feels very limited
even with the hatchback).
Responsive cornering, sporty, exterior
appearance, standard bike rack (works
great with Thule bike system),
hatchback with folding down rear seats
makes the car extremely functional, AWD
is what sets this car apart.
Engine feels weak, you must be close to
the car for keyless entry to work, horn
is rediculously loud when you lock or
unlock the car, tires could be a little
