I bought my current Saturn ('05 Ion2) used in October of last year with 28K miles and the balance of factory warranty. I traded my red '92 SC for it at a local dealership after it spit the diff. pin for the second time.

I bought my 2000 LS2 sedan used, but with only 8700 miles on it in 2000. It was practically new. It's been a great car and it is my second Saturn.

My sister's '92 SC was bought used from a friend, that bought it used from the dealer he works at, Saturn of Windsor.

My mom's '05 VUE was bought new from Saturn of Windsor.

My '02 SC1 was bought used from Saturn of Windsor.

My sister's '95 SC1 was bought used from a friend, that bought it used from the dealer he works at, Saturn of Windsor.

I bought my daughter a 98 SC2 5 speed coupe 3 years ago.

I feel in love with it and drove it whenever she was not in it.

Now she has it at college, but I love to drive it when she comes home to visit.

I wished I had started buying Saturns years earlier when they were still Saturns.

This little car is peppy, runs great and gets great mileage.

A tree recently fell on it during an ice storm, but this tough little car held up well enough for the insurance to rebuild it.

I bought my '08 Aura new. My soon to be ex wife got her '08 Vue new. Before that, I got my first Aura, an '07 new. She had an '05 Vue, also purchased new... '04 Ion RL was new, but didn't survive life very long.
The '95 and '99 SL2's were both used cars.

All of my Saturns have been used.

First came the white '95 SL1:

Which was then traded for the silver '01 SC1, which I still miss dearly. I wish I could have kept it and bought the SC2 as well:

Which was then traded for my current yellow '01 SC2:

And I've owned the SC2 since September 19, 2006, and it's changed a bit since then. I'll hopefully keep this Saturn for a long time, but I'm looking at most likely purchasing another used S-series as a daily driver and keeping the yellow as my project/fun car.

There have been other Saturns in the mix, but those are the main ones. I should probably include the red and gray, which I bought from a member of this board on May 25, 2007. I was putting way too many miles on the car, so it's now my dad's car (Green93SL1 on these boards, he's mostly a lurker). He takes excellent care of the car, so don't worry, she's in good hands!

I was given a 2005 Vue this past year and my son drives it now. The lease is up in May. We may be in the market for a new car later this year.

My 95 SL2 I bought from a private party used obviously. It was a California car, it had 125k on it when I bought it and is now approaching 174k! I lost the AC unit on it a few yrs ago and don't see the need to drop that kind of cash to replace it... and other than smoking a deer a few weeks ago it has been the best car I have owned to date!:)

I bought my first Saturn used but I didn't really have it long enough to even consider myself owning it. My ION I bought new.

[COLOR="Purple"]My first-ever "brand new" car in my middle-aged life was a 1998 SL2. My current Saturn is a used 2004 Ion 3 which I bought (from the dealer) about a year-and-a-half ago and generally speaking, I'm happy with it. I hope to continue to drive my Ion until I run it into the ground. [/COLOR]

I bought both of mine brand new, (and I still have both).

'97 SW2 - Drove right off the lot with maybe 8 miles on it. (90K later still have it)
'03 VUE - Factory ordered with the features I wanted. Drove it off with something like 4 miles on it. (The dealership moved down the street from the time of it's delivery to the store to my picking it up, plus it had to be driven off the truck :))

2 years ago, bought a 2002 Vue, used. 16 year old rolled it about 10 months later and walked away with a scratch on her elbow and a sore back. Have TWO teen drivers, promptly bought 2 more Vues. An 07 White Vue, barely used, and an 08 Black Vue new. Hope these 2 last a little longer! :)
