2002 Saturn L-Series Wagon LW300 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Interior space, nice dash set-up


Worst Features

The window controls are a little oddly positioned, but work OK since driver and passenger can reach them.

Review

Beginning shortly after buying the car, I have had thousands of dollars worth of repairs to various parts of the car, especially the cooling system, electrical system, air conditioning, pieces and parts. I spoke to Saturn customer service who told me they don't guarantee anyting after the waranty, and basically tough luck. So back I go to being a Toyota customer


Best Features

Worst Features

Need to make a better car.

Review

The LW200 offers a good array of standard features (traction control, side airbags, etc.), good size/interior dimensions, and top-of-its-class fuel economy for a very competitive price. It is not a luxury ride, and its build quality is only fair. But it has provided reliable, economical transportation. Recommended.


Best Features

Great combo of roominess + fuel economy. Nice extra: automatic headlights on/off.


Worst Features

Add a rear middle seat head restraint, car mats with better grips.

Review

After a long line of Fords, I expected better from this car, but have been disappointed. After 28 months, the following things have broken: key ignition unit, cruise control and recently the catalytic converter, which cost me almost $1,000. None of the above have been covered under warranty. Other minor yet ongoing complaints include a quirky remote alarm, partly broken driver's side power seat, loose front passenger's seat upholstery, and a broken arm rest. Can't wait to trade this one in, and it won't be for another Saturn.


Best Features

Good storage space; decent gas mileage at 26 MPG overall; Enduraflex door panels, good braking; decent radio and audio system; excellent service department environment and experience


Worst Features

Build a car which will be trouble-free for the first 100K. Work on the reliability issues or this nameplate is doomed.
