Overall great car by Rees Willis, TX on 01/22/2009. Trim: 2004 Saturn L300 Sedan 2, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Great car no complaints after mods were made
Cons: Towed for 10k plus 40k on odometer had to have both ends retrofitted, replaced tires now ok
Overall review: I'd buy another if they were still with plastic doors & fenders

Good alternative to higher priced "quality" foreign cars by LDM on 05/29/2008. Trim: 2004 Saturn L300 Sedan 3, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Overall good car for the money. I still like it better than the Aura... check out the Aura's trunk and compare... try to get a stroller in there. Saturn dealer and service are solid. This car has a number of safety features and nice amenties for a car at this price; try to find a comparably priced Accord or Camry. Saturn has now gotten rid of the polymer panels; I understand why but there is nothing sadder than a week old car with dings in it... we like the piece of mind from the plastic doors. Looks much better than the original L Series... very much the lines of the Cadillac Catera. The Saab engine is holding out well at 50K miles.
Cons: Yes... road noise is annoying but I would challenge anyone to say you don't get that with Camry and Accord. Be watchfull of the tires; I had a 2002 that ate the tires up at 20K and the dealer had to do some retrofit to the suspension on that year. I made a point of asking about that issue when purchasing this one; so far much better but the stiff suspension is still rough on the tires as they get real noisy around the 20K mark. I will be trying a different tire to see if it is the Firestones.
Overall review: Good value for the money... I didn't like the Malibu, didn't think the Impala was worth the extra $$ and wasn't going to break the bank for a basic Honda or Accord. So far very happy with this car and it looks like it is only six months old.

Very nice ride by jaybird from Md on 11/04/2005. Trim: 2004 Saturn L300 Sedan 3, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The ride is sporty like. Car has more power than one would assume. Travels at highway speeds with no hesitation, reduction of power when heat/AC running, and does not shake or shimmy at high speeds
Cons: No real dislikes. This vehicle can really grow better the more you drive it. Has plenty of room.
Overall review: When I walked into Saturn I had my mind set on an ION. Because of my situation I was not able to purchase that ION. The dealer suggest I consider the L300. The first thing that came to my mind was that I didnt want a car that my parents would drive. I wanted something with a classy yet sporty appeal. Then our sales consultant came around with this black and chrome 300. This car was loaded except for leather which i didnt want anyway, DVD player, and computer rear view mirror. I reluctlently test drove it and believe me that I am happy that I did. This car was incredible. Dont get me wrong its no BMW or vehicle of that type but it held its own. For the money this is the best car that I have owned.

It Grows on You by Blackcloud from Peoria on 08/31/2006. Trim: 2004 Saturn L300 Sedan 3, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This car grows on you. Traded in an Acura CL and while I thought I had got a deal with $7000.00 off sticker, I didn't think it was anything special. As the trouble-free miles roll up I realize that this is a sensible car that handles well, cruises extra-highway speeds easily and gets good fuel milage.
Cons: ROAD-NOISE. The car remains solid with no rattles or shakes, but the rumble of the tires cheapen an otherwise fine automobile.
Overall review: When it comes time to trade in for a new car I plan to keep Saturn on the test-drive list. If they can give me a quieter car at highway speeds, they'll get another sale.
