2005 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Default New Saturn Owner: The 2005 L300 sedan

For those of you with exceptionally good memory, you'll remember my very first posts about wanting a 2005 L300 series at the beginning of this year (before learning of the L-series demise).

I was going to buy something in December, but the death of my 1993 Ford Taurus (piece of CRAP) accelerated my purchasing decision. I'll admit I also had my eye on the 2005 Honda Accord V6 Hybrid, but the $30K price point and the fact it's not out until November sealed the fate of that.

So I went to my local Saturn of San Juan Capistrano dealer, test-drove a 2005, and was extremely impressed. A few days later, I dropped the bomb and put down the payment on the car I've been dreaming of. Unfortunately I couldn't get much incentives since they were trying to move their 2003 and 2004 models, and I was insistent on getting the 2005 (because I'm stubborn like that), but I did get a great interest rate of 1.9% financing for 36 months. (I plan to pre-pay a little bit so that works for me).

So now I'm the new owner of an ice blue 2005 L300 sedan. It's SO nice. My very first "brand new" car. I will post pictures in the next week. I'm also planning to get Pioneer's AVIC-N1 (http://www.avic-n1.com) navigation/DVD system installed as well. Might as well go ALL out!

I'm "officially" a Saturn geek now. Comments and thoughts? Who else owns an '05 L300?

Congrats on your new car! I would have been stubborn too and went for the 2005, but when I bought my ION, the 2005's weren't out yet I'm not crazy about the larger steering wheel anyway...

I found out today that I was the first to buy a 2005 model off their lot. That's kinda exciting. Luckily I was in a hurry so I didn't stick around for the "TGIF" treatment that they usually give their new customers, but it was a rather momentous day.

And cdp, I don't mean geek as in snorting individuals with broken glasses and suspenders. All of us have something that we're very ademate about and put a lot of dedication and time into, and I classify that figuratively as a (insert hobby here) geek.

Pictures will be in my gallery by the weekend.
