A reliable, cheap (very cheap), coupe with little power
Sun roof has broken.
My Dad hit the back of it with an SUV while backing out; had to be repaired.
OK, first of all this was not my car, it was my friends. But I drove it at least once a week, and have been inside for many hours, so I guess I'm qualified.
Lets start with the engine:
1.9 liters, 100 hp; that about sums it up. Was quite slow, but it was sometimes enough power to squeal the tires, if that tells you anything. The throttle response was really odd - if you put down the accelerator, nothing would happen for a good second, then all of sudden it would take off.
The paint was a nice color, a metallic blue, but all the body panels were some kind of plastic, and bow in if you leaned on them.
The SOUND SYSTEM was the greatest part of the car. It was actually very loud and had deep bass, go figure.
The interior was cheap, fabric (grey). Looks like they gave up on the styling in the interior.
It was my friends first car, his last saturn. Now he has an Audi TT quattro coupe, and loves it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
