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.

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.

While the L series is loaded with goodies, I don't think most consumers are willing to pay Honda prices for the Saturn sedan. It's not that there is something wrong with the L300, Hyundai has the same...
