    2005 Saturn Relay - RF2 FWD

    Pros: The DVD player... the kids loved it on road trips!

    Cons: Color choices

    Advice: If you get a lemon, fight for your money back!!!

    I had to have it repainted because it was flawed, all moldings fell off and had to be reglued, DVD player was defective, Alternator had to be replaced 2x's, the inside door handle fell off 2x's, the A/C stopped working, 2 of the windows had to be replaced for flaws, it had engine failure, and last but not least, the breaks went out.... ALL BY 3,000 MILES!!!!

    2005 Saturn Relay - RF2 FWD

    Pros: The DVD Player

    Cons: It's been in the shop 3 times in 1500 miles!

    Advice: Dodge, Honda, Nissan

    The Saturn Relay handles rather poorly; although, apparently it’s trying to be SUV like so don’t expect it to feel like a Dodge, Honda, or Nissan. The acceleration is lame especially with seven passengers. Great features standard, e.g. the DVD system etc. However, we’ve had nothing but problems and it has been in for repair 3 times in only 1700 miles. Saturn’s service doesn’t seam to be as good as it used to be back in the mid-90’s. Very non-responsive and uncommunicative. We were Saturn fans, but this will no doubt be the last one we buy.

    2005 Saturn Relay - RF3 FWD

    Pros: Leather heated seats ... nice on those cold winter days

    Cons: Manual sliding doors are difficult for kids to handle ... best left to mom or dad to close

    Advice: you get a lot of bang for your buck on this one

    Handles as you'd expect from a cross-over ... smooth. Brakes are solid and there is very little road noise. We bought the Relay.3 ... it had the options we wanted.

    Advice: Even the base model comes with all the goodies.
