1997 SW2
Default S-Series Mileage Milestones 100k 150k 200k 250k and beyond

I looked for a thread where Member Mileage Milestones can be posted and didn't find one so I took the liberty of creating one. (let me know if such a thread already exists)

My SW2 reached 150,000 miles this morning I was lucky enough to notice all the 9s in a row and then all the zeros. I can't thank Saturn enough for creating such reliable and fun cars back in the late 20th century. I also want to thank All the nice people here on Saturnfans.com who keep the love and enthusiasm for these cars going strong.

1997 SW2 used 12/29/2011 with 124,200 -27 mpg
2004 Ion3 new 11/2003 (totaled) 11/2011 -23 mpg
1994 SL1 new traded
1992 SL2 new traded for above
* 1986 Yamaha ce50 Jog -100 mpg

I took a couple of snaps of mine rolling over from 99,999 to 100,000 last summer. I was in Utah, on my way back to Las Vegas from Seattle. But, I didn't download them anywhere and they still reside on the phone (which, to my dismay, went belly up a few months ago). I'm at 110000, and change, now. Will take another shot soon, when it rolls around to 111111.

Default Re: S-Series Mileage Milestones 100k 150k 200k 250k and beyond

Hit 200k a couple months ago but think the picture was on my old phone.

About to hit 203k.

100k is expected, 200k is a well-built car, and 300k is really where I'm impressed.

I don't expect to get there on this car but I feel it would be possible.

Default Re: S-Series Mileage Milestones 100k 150k 200k 250k and beyond

My miles tend to be put on slow and hard with a lot of stop and go city driving and cold starts and short trips ( and a fair amount of idling on cold winter days)... Yet of late, I've been racking up miles a bit more quickly than usual due to the fact that my LW300 has some persistent problems preventing me using it for longer trips and because I've taken more longer trips than usual -- since early November I've driven it (from Boston) to and from Philadelphia once, and to and from Northern New Jersey three times (and will go to NJ a fourth this weekend). So I'm approaching 143,000 as of now, but will be hitting the 150k milestone soon at the rate I'm going.

Tires last about 100,000 miles or so. Headliner rotted away so for 60 bucks of walmart t-shirt material I re-lined the headliner about 2 years ago
Best car I have owned. Clear coat is starting to peel. I may re-paint it ? But I would have to be really board to do so.
