Overall, I'm satisfied
I am the second owner of the vehicle, and purchased it from a Saturn used car dealership, so anything before 60k was not of my concern.
Fuel injection system flush (due to vandalism) : $1300 (happened within 72 hours of car purchase, so the dealership covered the cost).
New suspension: $1100 at 118k.
New tires (4 tires on two occasions) : about $500 per set.
A/C unit stopped working at about 100k, haven't had it looked at yet.
Was hit while parked, damaging rear tail light and bumper: $1100 (the other driver covered the costs).
Brake lights on the rear windshield require maintenance because of a faulty design.
Emergency brake replacement: $300.
Overall, this car gets me from A to B.
I wish the circumstances under which I purchased it were difference, I basically needed a car in a hurry, but I could have done a lot worse.
It's about to hit 125k, and I put about 15k on it annually.
Not comfortable for taller passengers (over 5'10").
Roomy trunk and backseat for any transporting needs.
Easy to find car-seat buckles.
Ugliest upholstery I've ever seen.
Fun on fast curves.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
