2004 Saturn L300 REVIEW logo 4/5/2017

Con: Build quality not up to segment standards, low-grade interior materials, less power than the competition, soft handling around corners, not much storage space.

Pro: Extremely competitive pricing for this segment, customer-focused dealers, strong V6, wagon availability.

Edmunds Say: The L300 sedan and wagon cost 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.

What’s New: All L-Series sedans and wagons have been renamed "L300" this year, but both the 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine and the 3.0-liter V6 are still available. The four-cylinder motor gets a five-horsepower increase this year for a total of 140. A five-speed manual transmission is no longer available with this engine. All L300s now include such standard equipment as head curtain airbags, ABS, heated mirrors, a six-speaker CD stereo and a tilt steering wheel. An auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass is optional, and Saturn is giving those who purchase a loaded sedan or wagon the option of getting a DVD entertainment system or OnStar telematics at no extra cost.
