Thinking about buying a used 03 Saturn L series 300 with 123000 miles on it. It sounds
good and drives nicely but I am hesitant because of the age. Are there any problems I
should look out for particularly
I would STRONGLY (I can't emphasize this enough) recommend that you AVOID this car for several reasons: Saturn discontinued the L Series after the 2004 model year, Saturn and Pontiac no longer exist..so even though GM still exists, major parts availability would be questionable...keep in mind this car was discontinued. According to Consumer Reports, there were several problem areas, namely: Engine Cooling, Fuel System, and Electrical System. You'll be inheriting someone else's problem child.
NOOOO!! Don't do it. I bought this car in 2007, with 21K miles on it. After the first few years it was one problem after another and they are all very expensive repairs. In the past year and a half I've put approximately $2K into repairs -- electrical issues, failed passlock module, and a whole bunch of other things. And now my service engine light is on and the car is shifting hard between first and second gear. I realize your post is several months old, but I hope you didn't buy the car!
