2001 Saturn L-Series L200 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Upon purchasing this car I found that the previous owner had replaced the engine. I heard of this engine having issues yet I doubted it would actually blow due to the list of issues that plague these engines. After one year of ownership, the engine blew due to a random rod busting through the block. The second engine only had 40,000 put on it upon purchase and then another 30,000 put on by me during the year. Awesome car besides the shoddy craftmanship.
I definitly felt comfortable inside the car and the gas millage was excellent. Car maintenance was easy even though any amount of maintenance couldn't save the engines defects. The throttle had some nice acceleration too.
