Bought a 1994 sl1 (obd1) used from a guy in Minnesota with 80,000 some odd miles on it for $2,500 bucks .. Drove it to Montana (where we lived) and drove it around for 7 years, before coming to Texas (3 years ago) to drive it around some more ..

So far, replaced the starter, battery, front left wheel bearing .. that's it. It currently has 177,000 some odd miles on it and it gets better mileage (38 mpg) than many of the newer ones.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Brand new, with 12 miles on the odometer in December 1995, our SL1 now has over 279,000 miles on the odometer. over the next few weeks, it will be getting a new water pump, thermostat, timing chain, and fresh gaskets for the cam cover. Then, she'll get a good cleaning under the hood, and hopefully be trouble free for another 279,000 miles!

...
one owner 96 SL1, 279,000 miles and counting.

Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I'm a rare one. I bought my 2007 ION QC3 2.4 used in 2006, but it was a brand new. Only had 2,000 miles on it when purchased. So I say new because it was never broke in. Previous owner was GM/SATURN corperate.

1994 SL2
Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I've had somewhere around 8 different Saturns now.

My current one, I bought from the original owner in Milwaukee in 2009 for $1700 with 162,000 miles, had it for several months, sold it to my best friend for his Buick century, then bought it back just a month ago now in trade for a Jeep which I hated.

He only put 10K miles on it, so it's still a good car.

Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I bought my 2007 Saturn VUE V6 FWD in August of 2007, this was brand new off the lot. Haven't done much as far as service on it aside from the normal things like oil, brakes, tires. I have been staying as close to the maintenance schedule that I should be aside from the transmission. I have just cracked the 70k mark and have yet to have the tranny serviced at all. Original fluid is still in there and havent had any issues come up and still runs and purrs like a kitten just like on day one. After a nice oil change and fresh air filter I usually can put about 450 on it with one tank. Very nice piece of machinery. I will be paying it off this year and plan on keeping it around alot longer because of how nice and low maintenance this vehicle has been. Now I know I am probably making alot of people think that "Your gonna have a bad day soon because of that tranny not being serviced". Well let me tell ya that almost once or twice a year I put about 4/5k on it in a very short period (2/3 weeks) driving from one side of the country to the other. I have had only one issue and that was when I first got it. Picked up a thorn on the roads and it got logged in the sidewall of one of the tires (Tires had 5k on them and this was in 2007, shortly after getting the vehicle). I had to put 170 for a new tire, just one. but since then its been great
