I suspect that this review would look a lot different if had been for any of the other engine options available. The car came to me in 2008 with about 65,000 miles on it. As is typical of Saturn, there is quiet a lot of plastic, both inside and out, but I don't mind the styling too terribly. The design is beginning to show its age a bit, but it's not something that bothers me. What does bother me, however, is the curiously poor fit and finish on display. At highway speeds, every window and door whistles and rattles, making a distracting and frustrating racket. We recently made a 13 hour round trip drive back home, and the passenger door makes so much noise above 75 mph that it was impossible to get any rest in that seat unless we lowered our speed. The steering wheel makes a horrible... (more)
Pros
Engine performance. Efficiency
Cons
Fit and finish. Road noise. Wind noise.

This is a great starter car, I bought it right out of college and it has served me well. The gas mileage is great, working 25 miles from home I only had to fill up once a week. As a young woman I feel incredibly safe driving in the car and I love the mommy control panel as I call it. I can control all the windows, radio, etc... From my steering wheel. I have moved with this car seven times in the four years that I owned it and each time I am amazed at how much I can fit into my car. The trunk is huge and the back seat folds down so you can fit larger items in easily. I am glad that I bought this car, it was a good deal for a first car when you get a real job. Now that I have had it for a few years and my status in life has improved I am looking forward to upgrading.
Story
I love the hatch back of this car, during hot days in the summer I like to sit in the back and eat my lunch. I get to enjoy the day and the comfort of my car.
Pros
I love the interior of the vehicle, I have leather seats and wood trim on the dash board. The car handles great in all weather, even during this past Michigan winter I was able to get to wear I needed and plow threw a foot and a half of snow. The sensors are all reliable and I know when my oil change light comes on that it is time to change the oil.
Cons
While I really love this car, it does not have a lot of extras of gadgets. It is a basic SUV. The brakes squeak even when they were new and my tires always click. It is low to the ground for an SUV so you have to be more careful about driving over snow, etc. The brakes are not very sensitive which means you have to push down almost all the way to get the car to stop, even when the brakes are new.

They talked with me long enough so that they could understand what exactly it was that I was looking for. The salesman then collaborated with another to go through their inventory to try to find one that was as I wanted. They worked with me on a price and we ended up agreeing on a price that worked well with my budget and what I was willing to spend.

I don't know about it being the best, but they were one of the few to actually want to finance me. I was 18 at the time and my options were extremely limited. The dealer offered to lower my payments as he knew I was planning to attend college. The car runs fine and I haven't had any problems with it.
