Picked up my car yesterday and put about 200 miles on it. Here are my observations.

Good
  • Plenty of get up and go. After reading some of the threads here I thought the car would move as slow as an old Ford Escort. It accelerates better than my 3.0 X-Type.
  • Compliments. People really love the white with red & black leather.
  • I love driving it. Plain and simple.
Bad
  • Scratch from hood raised with door open. Was already there when I picked it up. I pointed it out as my salesperson was telling me to never do that. :lol:
  • Appears to be a tiny indention from the front of the hood touching.
Other
  • LOTS of attention. Everyone friendly so far (except people in 90's Firebirds it seems). Lot of people wanting to talk at stop lights.
  • I think I smell gas sometimes while driving. When I go in to have the paint touched up I will mention it.
  • Some kind of sticker residue on drivers side rear panel. You can barely see a square outline.
  • At 5'7" 280 the seats are about exactly fit to me. Has a snug race car feel. The seat feels the same as my other car, but less room between the seat & the door. After 120 miles the first day, I never felt uncomfortable.
  • Will have to be more patient when changing lanes to the right. I need to stretch a little to see over "My Humps". I don't like to use my mirror solely when making a lane change that way.
NO BUYER'S REMORSE AT ALL

Hey belletire, I'm 6'2" and have trouble seeing over my right shoulder when changing lanes. I got mine last Tuesday afternoon and at 100 miles a day like you and I are driving our 36/3 warrenty is going to last just slightly less than a year.:)

Thanks for the update. I love the white with the two tone interior. Looks more race like.

Rackin up the miles

Boy can I relate.......been driving it almost constantly, about 300 in two days. Here are my observations:

1) I have gotten nothing but compliments, even got a wave and toot from the siren of a State Tropper as he passed me going the opposite direction (no I wasn't speeding):rolleyes:

2) Most people don't beleive its a Saturn:D

3) Been challenged by a Toyo MR2 and a Honda Prelude.....they didnt stand a chance.......Smoked'm like a fine cigar!:lol:

4) Have a problem with the rag top.......see previous post.:confused:

5) Still enjoying the burning paint smeel from the exhaust:)

6) Got 23.6 MPG on the first tank of gas...average speed 29 MPH:thumbs:

7) Sporting a considerable "Burn" from over exposure during the 5 hour cruise thru the country back roads:cool:

8) ABSOLUTLY LOVE THIS CAR!!!:jester:

This is the first time I have bought a new car that made other people envious....which is a wonderful added benefit.
