This radio requires modifying the factory radio plug. but otherwise fits/operates perfectly in the following Saturns: 2000-2002 S-Series, 2000-2005 L-Series, 2002-2003 Vue, and 2003 Ion.
It is also a plug and play swap for 2004-2005 Saturn Ion and Vue that don't already have it since it was optional from Saturn for those years & models.
