This car has been sturdy. It is old as heck. We were too poor to keep up with maintenance for several years after we bought it. But she's still chugging along, no matter how badly we mistreat her. She does have her issues, however.
Story
We took a three day road trip to Missouri to watch the eclipse. It was cramped, but we had so much fun. It managed to fit food, clothing and entertainment for five (and a baby!) and still have space left over for a telescope and some science experiments we wanted to do while we were observing.
Pros
This sucker just seems impossible to kill. Every year we worry she's due for replacement, and every year she just keeps going. The few repairs we have had to make have patched her up enough to continue to soldier on. You can fit a full sheet of plywood in the back (and I have done so, many, many times), and she's just big enough to take a family of five on a short road trip across the state of Texas.
Cons
She does have problems. They don't make these anymore, and in fact Saturn went out of business, so parts can be expensive or hard to find. The air conditioning has broken three times. There's a recall on the ignition switch, which is an easy fix, but still inconvenient. If you need to take a long road trip, it's really just a bit too cramped for that, and the gas mileage is not so great compared to more modern vehicles.

I purchased this SUV when I traded in my Chevy Camaro. I needed a larger car for my growing family. There was plenty of room for a rear-facing car seat. It drove like a truck, and was very comfortable to drive. There was also plenty of room in the back for hauling groceries and other items. The back seats are 60/40 split and either side or both will lay flat. It is relatively reliable and has only had a few minor issues that were easy fixes. That car has become a rattle trap over the years, likely because of the plastic body. The silver painted trim wore off quickly and the vinyl trim on the cloth seats are cracking from use. The gas mileage isn't great and I average about 20mpg. There have been numerous recalls on the vehicle and because Saturn doesn't exist anymore, we have to take i... (more)
Story
My youngest locked herself in the car after eating lunch with my oldest child, when she was a toddler. She had been chewing on the keys and I set them on the seat after I buckled her in. Needless to say, when I closed the door, it locked. Thankfully the fire department was just across the street. Unfortunately, it isn't as easy as dialing 911 when you are needing assistance from a school.
Pros
Size, plastic moulding so there are no door dings, price, Honda engine
Cons
Lots of recalls, rattles, the hazard button broke the first time I pushed it, poor fuel efficiency.

I like the option to make service appointments. Except for one time, I am greeted when I arrive at the service bay. Everyone form the cashier to the service consultants is professional, friendly and answers questions. I seldom have to wait more than 30 minutes for an oil change. Always give updates about when car will be ready.
