People immediately speeding up to catch up to you when they realize they've been passed by an S-Series.

Also, looking up CarGurus, Copart and RockAuto websites multiple times a week and they remember your S-Series preferences.

You will drive through half of your state for an OEM part, because you know the aftermarket part is going to be out of spec or junk

Naw! I just make phone calls and pay shipping to get OEM parts from dealers or parts stores/ebay - works out well. I was able to purchase 3 TPS and 3 upper motor mounts, the last 2 months, all while playing with my granddaughter.

You have a hard time seeing oncoming traffic left and right at a stop sign because the weeds have grown a little too high.

Passengers get a little tingle from the fall as they enter your car.

(same thing - your car's too low)

A couple of weeks ago I gave my hangar neighbors a ride home when they got stuck on a motorcycle in a thunderstorm. She is maybe 5' tall. Now I know the design point for the coupe rear seat.

You’ve gotten used to being a little lower all the time. Always being the last to know when it’s raining.

You know how to replace a transmission valve body or individual transmission solenoids while a professional mechanic will just stare at you and not know what that is.

You can fold down your rear seats and fit a 26" mountain bicycle in the back of your coupe, but you can't fit two grown adults in the back seats under normal conditions.

After parking your car in a parking lot and return, you can't find your car.
This is due to the low profile of the S-Series, surrounded by all the tall vehicles parked around it, and blocking your line of sight.

Gosh! Due to my height, I would just lower my 'line of sight' and look under those tall vehicles to scan for my new Michelin tires and head in that direction.

Maybe, in the future, you should bring a short person with you, if you tend to lose your Saturn.

Everyone around you thinks you’re nuts for holding onto a car that’s too old, too small and too embarrassing to be seen in. They hold impromptu automotive interventions at the dinner table or the hi-tops at the Sizzler to convince you to buy a new car but the subject fades quickly when you tell them you’ve had your $_____.00 Saturn for __ years.
