Rain drips in sometimes during big storms; the car lived its previous life in Florida, so Kentucky winters cause it to run loudly until it's warmed up.
A little rust on the metal window frames.
Electrical problem with one of the power windows so it goes down but not back up.
I'd like it if the headlights were a little brighter because I live in a rural area.
The window is my biggest problem, but that kind of broken circuit is not surprising on a 9 year-old car.
I love this car. Like I said, on frigid mornings it is really loud, but still a smooth ride, and once it's warmed up, the engine is very quiet.
I am very comfortable riding in it at 5' 6"; there's plenty of head and foot room, and the lumbar support in the seat is great. The trunk is sizeable, and the back seat will lay flat.
The brakes are great, but I don't know how or when (or even if) they've been replaced, since I bought it at auction.
It gets about 30 miles to the gallon on the highway, and 22 in the city. The automatic transmission changes gears faster and smoother than any car I've ever driven.
I am never worried about getting it started. Despite the car's aversion to the cold, it starts right up even after 4 days outside in 10 degree weather, which is more than I can say for my mom's Chrysler Cirrus, which refuses to start if you leave it outside for one night in the middle of July.
I recommend used Saturns for every person's "first car," because they are very reliable, good-looking, and cheap to maintain and drive.
