2001 SC2
1996 SL1
Default Re: how many miles do you have on your saturn?

My '94 SL2 had 282,000 mi (454,000 km) when I retired her in 2005. Still looked great and still on the original clutch, engine, etc. although the motor was using 1 liter of oil per 400 km by the time we parted (went to a recycler). Now have a 2001 SC2 with 262,000 km and running well except for a rough idle (which is why I visited the site - great site, BTW - always lots of helpful info and owners).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

208,000 miles original engine clutch replaced at 160k expect I think I just broke the diff pin a few days ago it is dumping transmission fluid all over. It may be time to retire her and buy another.

Default Re: how many miles do you have on your saturn?

My 01 SC2 has around 128K+, probably hit 129K this coming week. Daily driver with the crazy person that owns it averaging 27 MPG at 80 MPH (on the highway). It's had a new radiator and a new starter in the last 6 weeks, but other than that she is a trouble free car. Knock on wood>

162K on 97 SC1. I add a quart of oil every 2k miles. I've owned since 55K miles and have replaced an alternator and idler pulley, nothing more. This has been the most trouble free car I've ever owned.

Default Re: how many miles do you have on your saturn?

just went over 244,000 in my 95 SL1. Only engine problem so far was that my rocker arm shaft (exhaust side) bolts for #s 1 and 2 cylinders backed out causing the shaft to break in two places and loss of power for those cylinders. Replaced with shaft and rockers from a parts yard and I,m back up to 33 mpg. Makes me wonder how long they had been backing out before the shaft broke. Explains the decrease in mpg and higher than normal oil consumption prior to the break.

Default Re: how many miles do you have on your saturn?

96SL2, 189K. Original motor. Uses very little oil. 5w-30 maybe sees 1/2qt in 5000 miles. 5w-20 uses about 1qt for 5000 miles.

When the A/C is often used, the oil consumption increases.
