Interesting Facts about Saturn L100
- Saturn L100 is part of Saturn's L-Series sold by the American automotive company, General Motors. The models under this series came as mid-size coupes and station wagons that were first introduced for the 2000 model year. The brand came up with the new multi-million series in an attempt to attract more consumers all over the world and address the major drop of GM's sales in the latter part of the 90s.
- The L100 model was officially introduced in 2001 as part of a new set of models including the L200, L300, LW200, and LW300. All of the new models were reinventions of former L-Series units introduced to people in the previous year. These cars, however, are still pretty much the same as the older models, except that the new ones have bigger fuel tanks as well as shoulder belts for the center rear seat.
- In 2003, General Motors decided to discontinue the production of the Saturn L100 due to low demand. Soon after, production of the L-Series station wagons was canceled, paving the way for newer and better models from the brand.
- One of the main reasons why the Saturn L100 and the whole L-Series was pulled out by General Motors from the market is because of the recurring problems and complaints on the quality of the car models. Most of the consumer complaints are focused on transmission failures, engine failures, too much vibration, persistent tire noise, and poor overall fit among others.
- The Saturn L100 and all the other models included in the L-Series carried some designs that are patterned on the European Opel or Vauxhall Vectra, which is one of the most popular and sought after car design from General Motors.
- All the units under the Saturn L-Series are particularly manufactured at the GM plant in Wilmington, Delaware. It was an old plant that has long been owned by the brand, but was specially renovated and retooled to accommodate mass production of L100 and other models in the series.
- Saturn tried to compete with the more popular car models at the time the L-Series was introduced, specifically the likes of Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, which were among the list of best-selling cars in the United States of all time.
