It can take a beating and won't let you down
The engine has burnt oil since I got it, headliner fell down, a plastic rivet fell into the panels of the car and rattles constantly, front right brake rotor warped, windows barley roll down, and a few other regular things that would happen after years of use.
I got this car as an even trade for my fixed up truck that I spent 2200$ trying to get the front end fixed on, but it never happened leaving me with no money and a nice 8 miles to the gallon. This car has been great, it gets a good 28 miles to the gallon and is very reliable. Tho it burns oil and has a few minor cheap issues this car has never let me down. Even after I raced it against my friend going 100+, shifting on the red, low on oil, hitting deep pot holes, she still runs strong. I'm getting a new engine put in her right now because I'm tired of the oil burning, but even if I didn't do this I'm sure this car would make it well over 150k miles with the engine it has. I believe this car would literally fall apart before ever breaking down on me. I recommend Saturns to anyone, they are great reliable cars that can take a lot of abuse and keep going.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
