If you can buy any other vehicle, buy it; don't buy an L-Series Saturn!

2000 Saturn L-Series LS1 4dr Sedan


My wife bought this car as a low-mile 1-owner back in 2002. I realize that (nearly) 9 years of wear and tear can be hard on a vehicle, but considering the luck we've had with the powertrain in the past 3 years, I'm wondering if my wife ran over several black cats in succession after hitting a truck filled with mirrors...

To put it bluntly, I'm ecstatic that GM shuttered the Saturn Division. Don't get me wrong, the cars are great *until* things start to fail on them; couple that with an inordinate number of "special" parts that need "special" dealer-only tools to do a basic R/R, and dealers that are as pleasant to deal with as an organized crime syndicate...it was a recipe for failure.

Best Features

* Fun to drive (when everything is working). * Interior ergonomics. * Excellent visibility.

Worst Features

Isn't this a moot point since GM no longer makes Saturns and thankfully no one else does either?
