We are now finding out that saturns were built how cars were supposed to be built. Rust proof and durable. I this this model is better than the Aura style. We need saturn Back. them Cheesy commercials were funny but didn't represent the quility of theses cars 20 years later we are finding out that they were better than the rest.

I bought this car two years ago. Absolutely the best car I have owned. My wife drove it until about 6 months ago. We bought her a 2009 Saturn Vue. So I chose to keep this L300. Very fun to drive, lots of power and still 26 MPG average. I drive it every day and thoroughly enjoy it. Quick note: Going home one evening at around 60 MPH, a deer runs out and hits the side of my L300. I got stopped to see what the damage was, and there was none. One small scratch where the hoof hit. I had no idea this car had composite panels on the doors. Why don't all vehicles have this. Can't say enough good to describe this car.

This is honestly the worst car I've owned since my 86 Chevy Celebrity. Every time I get into the, I'm in a foul mood because of the harsh ride, vague and indirect steering, poor seat support and comfort, high levels of wind and road noise etc etc etc. I have read other reviews on Edmunds of this car, and I'm shocked, and wonder if people are writing about the same car! It gets poor fuel economy, shifts abruptly, has poor suspension dampening, has an interior that looks like it was designed by Play Skool. Panels are broken and worn out, trim has rough, undesirable textures and the fabric is faded from black to grey. It comes down to the fact that this is the worst car I've ever owned.
All L-Series sedans and wagons have been renamed "L300" this year, but both the 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine and the 3.0-liter V6 are still available. The four-cylinder motor gets a five-horsepower increase this year for a total of 140. A five-speed manual transmission is no longer available with this engine. All L300s now include such standard equipment as head curtain airbags, ABS, heated mirrors, a six-speaker CD stereo and a tilt steering wheel. An auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass is optional, and Saturn is giving those who purchase a loaded sedan or wagon the option of getting a DVD entertainment system or OnStar telematics at no extra cost.
