2004 Saturn L300 Wagon 1 4dr Station Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've been driving this car for 4 years, and I love it. It feels great on the road, and was very affordable. Even though I have the 4-cylinder baseline version, I've used this thing for hauling a good amount of stuff, including people that shouldn't have been riding in the back. I do have a few issues with the car, though. The interior materials are a bit cheap. As a result, the seats are a bit uncomfortable and it isn't all that durable. The second issue I have is a big one, writing this review in 2014: repairs are getting to be very expensive for this car. The L-series didn't exactly sell gangbusters, which means parts are getting increasingly hard to find.


Best Features

Composite body panels Bright, appropriately-placed headlights Smooth suspension


Worst Features

None, really, considering Saturn is dead. I would have liked better interior materials, though.

2004 Saturn L300 Wagon 3 4dr Station Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Researched and drove many luxury wagons and found this Saturn wagon. We drove and were sold for our family of four. It has plenty of power and butter-soft leather seats. Very comfortable inside with standard side curtain airbags, big cargo area, plenty of legroom for all, good mileage and 6-speaker crisp-thumping stereo. There's more road noise than in the BMW wagon, but you'll pay dearly for that quiet ride. According to Saturn rep, the L300's weren't marketed well and hence poor sales as a result. They were discontinued in 2005 to make way for better selling models. So far we are very happy with this vehicle. Great price, Luxury feel.


Best Features

Heated seats, traction control, side curtain airbags, soft leather seats similar to Volvo. Sporty look, tinted windows, dent resistant side panels, but doors feel heavy and solid. Hit passing gear and you're moving! Corners well too. Value for money is excellent. Most service not due until 100K mi.


Worst Features

One rear strut is leaking slightly and will need to be replaced. Heated seat setting on low feels like high.

Review

My wife purchased this car after we had two unhappy experiences w/ VW. We have on small problem with the rear tailgate that was covered under warranty. No other problems in 55000 mi. Mileage on highway hovers around 30mpg. She purchased the vehicle due to over all value, high amount of features to price. 4cyl provides enough power for normal use. We don't pull trailers or race Corvettes with it. Overall, an excellent little wagon and an under appreciated car.


Best Features

Auto headlamps, traction control, side airbags, economy of operation.


Worst Features

Keep making the plastic bodies. Rust never sleeps!
