Highest Mileage Saturns--looking for biggest numbers
 
Hey all,

I have a local news reporter asking about high-mileage Saturns.

She's aware of a car that's broken 300,000 miles, and wants to know how close that is to a record.

While I know that 300,000 is a solid performance, I am quite positive that
you guys know of better.

What have you got?

-T.

Love to get a pic of one of the 400+ cars, if that person sees this.

Would be for a TV news piece.

If anyone with a 400,000+ mile Saturn would like to share their experience--maybe with a pic of the OD and a pic of themselves with the car, I can make you mildly semi-famous.

Contact me: [email]Tom@CGauto.com[/email]

Thanks.

If its easier, you can also email me their usernames and I can email them directly. I've reached out to some members too. Hopefully we'll get some SaturnFans.com folks included in the story! :yes:

Hi Tom,

I've reached out to two owners of 400k+ mileage Saturns, plus a couple others. I'll let you know when I hear something back from them. Still searching for more...

Thanks,
Charlie

Re: Highest Mileage Saturns--looking for biggest numbers
 
Haven't been here in awhile, but I saw this post- so I thought I would add my two cents.

I had a 94 SC1, that was all original on the auto trans and engine- neither of which had been rebuilt prior to the car surpassing 340,501 miles on the odometer.

I was only the 2nd owner of the car- but I may as well have been the original owner as I bought the car with 59,000 miles on it back in 1997. I owned the car from 1997-2008; when I lost compression in Cylinders 1 and 3. The engine was shot.

I was going to rebuild the engine, but at the time I was starting a family and other life events were more important.

The other cars in my signature reflect a good portion of high mileage cars that I have owned over the past 20 years.

Feel free to reach out to me at my email, if the News reporter would like to do an interview. [email]Bryan.Bertsche@hotmail.com[/email]

I have pictures in my gallery as well ;)
