Review of the 2002 Saturn L-Series

  • It costs thousands less than comparably equipped Accords and Camrys -- and it looks, drives and feels like it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Extremely competitive pricing for this segment, customer-focused dealers, strong powerplant with V6, wagon availability.

  • Cons

    Build quality not up to segment standards, ultra-conservative styling, lack of established service and repair history.

  • What's New for 2002

    Safety enhancements are the big news for 2002. All Saturn L-Series models now feature standard head curtain airbags, antilock brakes and traction control. Other enhancements include four-wheel disc brakes (on all models except L100), automatic headlamps, LATCH child seat anchors and post airbag-deployment signals. A DVD entertainment system will be available later in the year along with the OnStar communications system. New options packages add even more value with features like an in-dash six-disc CD changer and automatic climate control. New 15-inch alloy and 16-inch chrome wheels round out the upgrades.

Lw300

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW300 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car with 42500 miles. It has plenty of room front, back and with rear seat folded down. Highway driving is very smooth but driving over rough pavement on city streets can be a bit rough. The car has a generous amount of power for a small V-6 and the gas mileage is not bad (24 combined) with easy starts and stops. Definitely a reasonable alternative to a large suv and much more nimble.




Not for snowy roads

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW200 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

This car handles very very very poorly on snow - worst I've ever owned (I've owned 5 other cars). I am looking to replace the car because of this. The front end is light and the traction control comes on when the car is on a slight incline on a wet road or road with a bit of small sandy/pebbley debris. I have never had snow tires (live in NJ) but never had an issue until this car.




Fun wagon

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW200 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

I love driving this car. Bought it in 04 at 27,000 miles, now has 192,000 miles of the roughest kind of roads in the USA. I live on a washboard, potholed road in the Mojave desert, drove the "Palmdale/LA gran pri"! (translate the Angeles forest hwy) to Glendale - what a fun road. My Saturn could beat any car in acceleration except maybe a Porsche - got great gas mileage, made those corners fun at 55 mph(legal speed), all while disguised as an old lady car! Plus lots of room to haul everything - you name it. Hay, chicken coop material, furniture (got a huge massage table and cabinents in this car). Want an RV? My only complaint. Tracer works better for camping in. What else do you need




Reliable, practical, durable & fun

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW300 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This car has been extremely reliable and fun to drive for all of the 93K miles. Excellent torque makes it feel very peppy. Very comfortable for front and back seat riders. Huge cargo area has been very much appreciated. Body panels have held up very well and look new to this day. Would definitely buy from Saturn again but will probably keep this car around for safe reliable college student duty.




Has been a great vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW300 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

We have had this LW 300 since it was new. We got all the bells and whistles including the DVD player with premium sound system, leather interior, etc. The car has never left us stranded on the road and runs strong every day. Great interior space and design. Stereo sounds amazing. We have had no problems with this car in the first 60,000+ miles and have no fear that it will let us down anytime soon. Have been running full synthetic oil since the first oil change.




Perfect sized wagon

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series LW300 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This car has turned out to be a perfect fit, and I don't even know what car would be comparable. There are so few wagons out there and none this roomy. I find my Saturn wagon is roomier than many SUVs. I feel safe in my wagon and it has been very reliable.
