Review of the 2000 Saturn L-Series

2000 saturn l wins !

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn L-Series LS 4dr Sedan

I bought my 2000 Saturn L sedan just before Thanksgiving 1999. It was brand new from the dealer . The car had 7 miles on the odometer, and ran perfectly. It still runs exactly perfectly today, with 168,000 miles. It has been probably the most trouble free car I have ever owned. The only repair has been a new power steering pump at 40,000 miles, and the Saturn dealer went havers with me on the bill. Other than that one repair, only routine maintenance has been necessary. Amazing ! My wife won't let me sell the car !

Horrible!

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn L-Series LS 4dr Sedan

I bought this car with 129,000 miles on it in September 2008 and it lasted me barely 2 years and died at 165,000 miles. Since i had purchased the car i had put well over $3,000 dollars fixing things. The engine was horrible and always had something wrong. Recently my car stopped i brought it in to the shop and yet again another engine problem that would cost another 4,000 to fix. That's when i said bye to that stupid car.




Very good car

Vehicle: 2000 Saturn L-Series LS 4dr Sedan

I inherited this car from my mother who bought it brand new in 2000 for 14k. It has just over 113,000 miles on it and has never had any major problems(save for insignificant oil leak). The car still gets a combined mileage of 30 mpg. Nothings been replaced because it was an early model, without the power options. The clutch is in "darn good condition" as we were told, the body pretty clean save for some crashes. This thing still has some get up and go too. Can get up to speed and keep up with a 2006 Mazda 2.3 until 3rd gear. Overall, I'd recommend this car to whoever is willing to take care of them. Saturns are long for running forever.

What's New for 2000

The L-Series is a new midsize line of sedans and wagons that was developed for Saturn customers moving up from the smaller cars. Offered in three trim levels, with two engines and manual or automatic transmissions (depending on model), the L-Series is based on the European-market Opel Vectra platform, and consequently carries a distinct import feel.
