Review of the 2005 Saturn L300

  • The 2005 Saturn L300 sedan costs less than comparably equipped import competitors, but the below-average build and materials quality will remind you of that fact every time you get in.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Low price, easy to handle dealers, standard V6, standard side and head curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Build quality not up to segment standards, less power than the competition, soft handling around corners.

  • What's New for 2005

    The L300 model lineup has been pared down for its final year of production. The wagon is history, and only one well-equipped trim level of the sedan remains.

Great at nothing

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Saturn L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I owned this car for several years and put over 50K on it. It was reliable, never had a major repair! But that was all the good I can say. The car had no personality. It had average power, average gas mileage, average handling, looks were bland and the car was absolutely no fun to drive. The plastic body made the car sound as if you were doing 110mph wile simply cruising down the highway at 60mph.




A dark-horse winner

Vehicle: 2005 Saturn L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

We chose the L300 over the Mazda6, VW Passat, and Subaru Legacy and we couldn't be happier. It is a sharp looking car that you don't see at every street corner, and the V6 is underrated in its performance--this car goes. It's a blast to drive and has been completely reliable. You really can't beat it for the money--with all the incentives, the car was thousands less as equipped than others in its class, and in my opinion far better looking to boot. Even the mileage is commendable considering the abundant power (we average 24 to 30 mpg).




Excellent value

Very good car for the money. The few folks who gave negative comments about this car must expect BMW or Mercedes performance. You are not paying for a BMW or Mercedes.

I like the style of the car as well as the performance and safety features. If you want a luxury car without the luxury price go for the Saturn L300 you won't be disappointed!




Best kept secret

Vehicle: 2005 Saturn L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

At first I regretted my purchase and thought I wanted to hang myself for not getting the 2006 Hyundai Sonata. After 4 days of driving it I realized that this car is great and I no longer feel remorse. It handles well and though it can do better on gas and the comfort for back seat passengers is not all that great I love this car. I love driving it and it was better than Honda or any mid sized sedan Ford have to offer (in my opinion). This car is like one of the best kept secrets. I am very happy with the L300 2005 and hope to have it for at least 8 years!

This is my second Saturn L series, I had an 2003 L200, but the L200 doesn't compare to the L300 V6. Big difference in fuel economy. I get better gas mileage on the interstate with the V6 than the 4 cyl. I have never had a problem with my Saturn's and will always own one.
