2002 Saturn L-Series L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my 2002 L300 new from a Saturn dealer in 2001.
Just turned 200,000 miles and still going very Strong!
It hardly burns any oil at all.
I'll be so sad to see this car go (when the time comes).
There was an issue with a fuel sensor which occurred after Saturn was shut down and it took about 5 months to get the part that I needed.
This was the only Major issue that I've had with the car.

Based on other reviews, it looks like I got pretty lucky with my L300.
I did follow the maintenance schedule so I have to think that helped a bit in getting the car to over 200,000 miles.
I'll keep driving it until it dies.


Best Features

Reliability of the car is my favorite overall feature. My L300 has all of the bells and whistles, but I'd have to say that its responsiveness and power is what I really enjoy most about the car.


Worst Features

Quieter ride would be nice. Too much noise comes in through windows/doors.

2002 Saturn L-Series L200 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this new because of the 0% financing deal and at the time Saturn Service had a good reputation. The car now has 120,000 miles on it and I have replaced the computer in the car twice, A/C had to be recharged for the last 3 summers, gas tank cracked and had to be replaced, clutch went out, loud rumble in the back, dash bulb lights, etc. I would NOT recommend this car to anyone and would not recommend Saturn at all. The service department used to be wonderful - now the service is TERRIBLE.


Worst Features

Weird placement for window controls - they are by the gear shift.

2002 Saturn L-Series L200 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Car ran great for the 30,000 miles I put on it. Just recently however the timing chain jumped, common with these l-models, and the valves/pistons/connecting rods were compromised. Engine will need to be replaced estimated at $2,400, through a friend of the family, while the car is only blue booked at $2,600. My brother has the same car, one year older, so I will keep the car for parts for him. He has also seen $2,500 in repairs for his vehicle. It seems like this vehicle is great up to 90K.


Best Features

Good gas, manual transmission


Worst Features

Build the engine with clearance

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


Review

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.


Best Features

heated leather seats, cargo capacity with rear seats folded.

Review

I have had this car for about a year ... My mom had it before me. I am 16 yrs old so as any 16 yr old I am rough with my car. I drove over 7500 miles in one summer not a single problem. I get from 25 to 45+mpg. So I would recommend this vehicle for anyone!


Best Features

Very dependable and Great handling


Worst Features

better sound system
