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!!!!
Cons: No power liftgate
Advice: Make sure you are comfortable in the car. Don't buy a lower priced car if it is not Very comfortableGREAT CAR. THE FAMILY LOVES IT. WE PAID $27,555 FOR RELAY 3 WITH DUAL POWER DOORS, REAR ULTRASONIC SENSOR, 6 CD CHANGER , DVD. HANDLES GREAT ON THE ROAD.
Pros: The DVD Player
Cons: It's been in the shop 3 times in 1500 miles!
Advice: Dodge, Honda, NissanThe 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.
Pros: On* Star
Cons: No heated seats are offered on the 2 or 3.
Advice: Price is right and it comes with all the safety and extras as the others in the same classGreat handle, comfort seating for all. Storage space can be easly reached.
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 oneHandles 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.
Cons: Wheel design
Advice: Even the base model comes with all the goodies.This vehicle surely brings Saturn to another level. Goodbye minivan, hello cross-over!
