Let's see, whirling noise they can't find the source, speedometer issues, center arm rest top broken, radio and speaker dies and this is all within the 1st 2 years. Everyone I know that has this car has the same issues. We bought this car at the end of the lease and that was a bad decision. We should have given it back. I say get rid of it just like the other reviewer suggest.

I've leased my LS for 3 years and found it an
excellent car. Plush upholsterystill looks like
new, despite hard use-kids, dogs, camping.
Comfortable ride that lets you feel the road
without being jarred. Brakes (not ABS) never
let me down. Standard issue CD/radio/
cassette sound system outstanding! And the
paint job looks like new, too, with nothing
but a car wash now and then. Handles great
in all weather. Wish the reviewers and
"experts " would quit picking on a great

I drove a Blazer for 11 yrs., so was
wary about buying a car. The V6 has
plenty of punch so it's been fun to
drive on the country roads. I've never
gotten a speeding ticket 'til this
yr...My test for usable interior space
was if I could get a Xmas tree into it.
No problem. Also crammed in a 27" tv!
Had a coolant leak that, hopefully, is
fixed after the second try. Other than
that, no problems in a year and a half.
The Saturn L-Series sedans and wagons didn't exactly set the world on fire when they were introduced in 2000, but they return for 2001 virtually unchanged. Saturn has addressed safety concerns by making front and rear head curtain airbags optional on all trim levels. All sedans are now equipped with a three-point seatbelt in the rear center seat, but this feature is still not available in wagons. Later in the model year, sedans will get an emergency trunk release handle. New colors include Cream White, Bright Silver, Silver Blue and Straight Shade Black. Bright White, Silver, Silver Plum and Blackberry have been discontinued.
