Happy 100k miles

I posted on here as liquiddog a couple of years ago. Had just traded in my eagle for a 2001 saturn sc2 and wished for 100k miles. Three years later, 98k is on the odometer and it's still going. I drove it in dallas for 80k miles. The car has been sideways on 75 N at 70 MPH, it has been in the air with all four wheels at 50 mph due to no "dip" sign. (Thanks city of irving)

This car runs like a ak-47. Always seems to work, but not always perfectly.

Serious Maintenance so far:
- 60k miles: intake manifold gasket
- 98k miles: two engine struts broken

Other Maintenance:
- 60k: replaced disc brakes with expensive pads and $15 rotors. Have new break parts with better rotors I'm about to put on to replace cheap warped rotors.
- 95k replaced transmission fluid (forgot @ 5k miles)
- 98k replaced serpentine belt with factory saturn belt
- changed oil, air filter, and replaced spark plugs w/ngk v power at various intervals
- 80k new factory saturn PCV valve ($6), tried oil change shop pcv valve and they do not fit. They pop off and the hose connector is in the wrong spot.

To Do:
struts, suspension is no longer functioning

I'm pretty pleased. I'll post a pic of the odo rolling over 100k.
