Default Stop posting S-Series to L-Series thread

I don't know if people are ESL or what but stop posting to L-Series with your S-Series problems. Your not helping anyone and is annoying, we all agreed to the posting rules to post to the right forum for the Saturn model. So is it that hard to understand that. S and L share the Saturn name but not the body/hardware.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Russell I appreciate your post. Back in 96 and 98 I owned s station wagons. I did not like them I thought they were too small for me a tall man. I just about gave up on the line when I came back and saw that they had remodeled the station wagon to the L models by 2002. Beings that you're a L fan like myself could you please State the obvious difference between the two different cars? Thanks Scott

Russet...chill lol. It's a common mistake, but a mistake none the less. You are not perfect so don't expect others to be so.

The differences are everything lol. The L series is based on a car designed and built in Europe. There are some things from an S series that interchange with the L series, but not much at all. In the USA the L series shares many parts with the Saab 9-5 and Cadillac Catera.

Apart from the fact that the L-Series is bigger ("L" stood for large in Saturn's simple way of designating models back then), the simplest exterior differentiation is at the wheels. S-Series cars have a 4 bolt pattern for the wheel mounting while the L-Series cars have a 5 bolt pattern.

(I would like to point out that Saturn did nobody any favors by not identifying their model names on the passenger cars until 2002 [the L-Series model names officially changed in '01] when they were forced to so as a result of a lawsuit with Toyota/Lexus over the use of the "LS" model name which they were already using. Toyota won and the Saturn "LS" became simply L-___ [choose your number: 100, 200, 300]. Add to this the fact that it was just plain foolish to have one model's base designation called SL and another one called LS. The "brains" at headquarters created the opportunity for confusion in the future.)

Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.
