Default Re: Youtube Video on a 2000 Saturn LW2

That is one professionally produced video. I especially like the peeling of the orange to get to the good stuff. If Saturn had actually run some ads like that for the L they might have sold a lot more. This car suffered from virtually zero promotion during its run. One of the big car mags did a comparo of 7 sedans in 2000. Saturn cheekily sent a 4 banger 5 speed against all the others being top line 6 autos. The L had the second best acceleration, best brakes, best slalom time and finished.... last. So much for the mags. BTW, after much searching I found a published 0-60 time for the I4/5M - 8.9 seconds. How does the L do this with less HP than the competition? It weighs hundreds of pounds less.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
