My Saturn is 10+ years old and running very, very well. Besides normal wear and tear, my car has had very few maintenance issues. It gets good gas mileage. However, it has very few frills--a radio and CD player, power steering, windows and seats. It does not have any of the fun frills like navigation or satellite radio. It is easy to drive and easy to navigate. It does not drive very fast and is not very "fun" to drive, but it gets me from point A to point B!
Story
My car has been with me through high school, college, and into adulthood. I have spent many hours driving alone cross state, singing to myself in my Saturn!
Pros
It is reliable and gets great gas mileage. Repairs are limited to normal wear and tear, and are generally inexpensive. It is easy to drive, and easy to turn and park. I am comfortable driving this car and have never felt like it was difficult to maneuver or handle.
Cons
My Saturn has a few idiosyncrasies that you must get used to. Namely, it occasionally fails to start due to a malfunction in the security system. When this happens, you have to wait at least ten minutes to try to start the car again and it can be a major inconvenience. Additionally, when driving at increased RPMs the transmission automatically slows itself, like you are depressing the break though you are not. Other than that, it is not a very fast or fun car and has little frills.

I really like this car. It is an older model but it has been maintained very well (my father in law is a mechanic). It is not very glamorous. The color is kinda ugly and there's not a lot of bells and whistles but that's okay. It is very dependable!
Story
Not in particular.
Pros
I love the wonderful gas mileage and the smooth ride. Brakes are good. Radio is still working alright. The windows and locks are still functioning well. Super durable.. I accidentally hit a mailbox and there was very little damage to the vehicle. There hasn't really been any major issues with the performance. It is moderately comfortable also.
Cons
The only issue that I really have with it is there is an oil leak. You have to put oil in it fairly often. The inside ceiling liner (fabric) has come down, but that is more of a usage and age issue, not indicative of the quality of the vehicle. It also takes a little longer than I would've expected for it to heat up during the winter.
