B-B-B-But... it's a SATURN

I'm trying to be open minded about Saturns. I just saw a commercial for this new SKY:

I will need to test drive one of those. I want a convertible to drive as a weekend fun car, and was previously thinking I'd get another BMW. (the Z4 below)



They look fairly similar, but I'm sure the SKY won't cost as much as the BMW. I'll have to drive both to decide. But KUDOS to Saturn for entering the world of sports cars. Now if we can just forget it's a Saturn. (I'm a car snob and I hate myself for it, but I can't help it so shut up)

I'm getting car fever again. Dammit, somebody stop me.

Ummm, I'm pretty sure I don't have anything planned for that day, in case you need a navigator.

I LOVE CONVERTIBLES!!!!

Isn't it amazing how these car manufacturers keep making cheaper cars that look like the more expensive ones.

Hey, that looks good! Let me know what you think once you test drive it.

Not bad! Mr. Scoop is a proud owner of a Toyota MR2 Spyder. No complaints here :)

Hm. Hot little cars there, Dave. One question - what happens when you go to pick up that bikini-clad damsel in distress with a flat tire and she has two of her good looking friends with her? I hope there's a lot of trunk space. In fact, don't bother test driving, just check the size of the trunk.

Just sayin.

Cars are only useful for getting from here to there. So pick up a used Nash Metropolitan and quit whining.

(That is, unless you were planning to attract some "action." Then the Saturn might be a better choice.)

I think I have the perfect weekend car for you, Dave. Right here. The SKY looks nice, but it's obviously going to have some of the usual GM foibles (i.e., it is going to fall apart quick). My wife and I owned an SL2 a few years ago and it started acting up. We took it into the dealership and they told us that we needed $3,000 in repairs.
"What?!" I yelped. "What the hell is wrong with it?"
"Well, you need this sensor and this sensor and this sensor..."
"Wait. These are all sensors. There's nothing actually wrong with the car?"
"Well, uhm, not that we can tell."
Needless to say, I left. I sold the car two weeks later.

Hmmmmm, I'd go for the one that would be a little easier on the mind rather than the one that would be easier on the pocket book. It pays for it's self in the long run with a decreased amount of worry and frustration!! BMW all the way baby!
