Beat it and it will still Beat by sufrinos on 02/16/2012. Trim: 1999 Saturn SL1, Owned 3 years.
Pros: from an economic stand point. I rate this car a 9. These cars are very easy to fix, I get 31 MPG Ave, has good acceleration, easy to handle, descent interior spacing, nice for tight spacing and easy squeezing into spots, and can take a little beating without causing harm. I have to say that I did go with 1/2 oil in my car for about 300 miles, I'll talk about that more on cons later. Plus, I purchased the car that had radiator & then later water pump problems with the car temp hitting red at times. I pushed it's limits and a bit careless. I maintenance the oil, water, and air intake filter clean and the car is great with good smog reports, especially after the beating that it first took.
Cons: There's something with the oil that the engine tends to eat up. Meaning that you would have to maintain the levels every 3k miles or so to make sure your oil doesn't get too low. I've heard different reasons to this from keeping your engine working well to limiting the amount of oil discarded to help save the environment. Regardless of what it is, just make sure the levels are good every so often. Besides that, not much to say but maybe it's not a full size royal interior spacing, car is narrow and not meant for a fat man of 300lbs, ... that's it I guess.
Overall review: My car is stick. So the car is dependable, with good take off acceleration, 380mi / 12 gal, easy changing parts in fraction of the time compared to other vehicles, descent room interior, car is sleek and small so it's easy to squeeze into tight spaces and cutting people off, and can take a small beating so it's good for teenagers. I've had many people comment and suggest a car like mine for themselves. People are amazed on what this car has done for me. If the car is in good condition, get it.
