Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Heated seats in the winter.
Cons: automatic temperature controlled heating system
Advice: Don't get the auto heating systemVehicle is fully loaded with leather, sunroof, etc. Very comfortable ride and low center of gravity.
Pros: Heated Leather Seats
Cons: Loud acceleration noise, but some people like that.
Advice: The V6 is well worth the extra cost.The vehicle has a nice form ride, you can really feel the road. I also like the way you can pick out your exact car. Getting leather heated seats, 6-disc changer, sunroof and onstar really set the Saturn apart from the competition. Not to mention the service at the dealership is second to none.
Pros: Acceleration with the V-6 engine
Cons: the Automatic Climate Control System
Advice: Buy it over the Honda Accord or Toyota CamryMy Saturn L-300 has the best acceleration of any vehicle I have owned! I can pass any car on the road with just a touch of the accelerator. It has a very smooth shifting transmission, firm ride, and outstanding feel.
Pros: The comfort of ride.
Cons: The windsheild wipers are the worst!
Advice: Buy it, but make sure they modify the wipers!Drives and handles great.
Pros: Exterior design. It is a very good looking car.
Cons: I find the automatic transmission to shift very firmly. Would prefer it to be smoother.
Advice: For the money the L200 is a great buy and a great car.Car is great. The exterior design gives it an expensive luxury look, at a reasonable price. Saturn's dealer is great, with no pressure. Buying the car took under an hour. I have spent all day elsewhere. Financing and lease terms are very good too.
Pros: Favorite Feature? Just driving this car is my favorite
Cons: The gas flap
Advice: My advice, don't wast your time or money looking at another carHandles great, looks great, sound system is great. The price is great. This has to be one of the best cars for the buck. Saturn has done it again with a winning auto. This is my second Saturn and once the ol' toyota goes, looks like it back to the Saturn dealer for a third. Go take a look at all they have to offer. You will be impressed too !
Cons: Inside styling a little dull
Advice: Research and visit a Saturn dealership. Test drive one!!!!You would be hard pressed to find more vehicle for the money. First, the buying experience alone is worth quite a bit. No hassle and no haggle. Very, very fair on our trade (Saturn makes no money when they sell your trade - they give you what they think they can get). Second, to find a car of this quality with all of the options we chose (leather, heated seats, CD, heated mirrors, traction control, ABS, and more) to go along with the car buying experience and price was very unexpected. The L series redesign for '03 is great. They used to look exactly like the 's' series only larger. Now they have their own distinctive look. Performance in the V6 isn't neck busting, however a 7 - 7.5 second 0-60 isn't anything to laugh at. Over all a wonderful car. Don't believe me - do your research and test drive one.
