Well, I rolled my car over on the way home tonight after hitting a slick spot on the road. I had the sense to snap a picture of the odometer and noticed it was still perfectly accurate.

Waddya know?!

Our 1999 Sl2 just hit 100k this morning. We have had it for around 7 years, and bought it with 55k on it. It was the car I learned to drive on, and drove while I was searching for my own car, and then a replacement after my accident. Good little standby.

P.S. I was not driving, it was my dad. He decided to take a picture, which I was very happy about.

Holy COW I hope I get anywhere NEAR the miles, 250k-300k, you guys have on your Saturns!!

Just hit milestones for my 'new to me' 1998 Saturn SL1 manual: 20 years and 50,000 miles!!! Celebrated with a basic dino (non synthetic) oil change, and plan on cleaning the engine bay (it's not real dirty and leaks zero oil). Also going to change the ORIGINAL 20 yr old tires, not because they're worn out, Lol, they've got plenty of tread, but the sidewall cracking scares me to tears !!!

Finally hit 115,000! No, it’s still not a big number but when I started driving the car 2 years ago it only had a little over 103,000. I wasn’t sure how long it would last me back then due to its age. I can tell now though that Saturn 1.9L ain’t give a crap about age and will just keep going

I love this car

I have a 1994 SL1 with 312,000 miles that I've had for 21 years. I also have a 2001 SC1 with 265,000 miles that I've had for 7 years. Last year I bought my daughter a 2002 SL1 and it has 147,000. My two are 5 speeds and the daughters is an automatic. I would drive my SC1 across the country and not think twice about it. All great cars.

That in itself if impressive - only 2,500 miles a year!

I went over 150k miles on the SC2 a couple of days ago. I usually keep the odometer on trip mileage so I missed the event. Engine feels like the car will run forever, but the rust on the bottom says, "No, I don't think so"

We need to make some badges available, 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k

You put a combo of what your total mileage is, if 150, then a 50 and a 100...

THIRD OF A MILLION MILES! It took 17 years, but finally reached the big third of million mile milestone last week. Like many of you folks, it's amazing what I haven't had to replace/repair after all those miles/years: Original clutch, original rear brakes, head gasket never replaced, all original engine internals, even cat and exhaust are original (had rear silencer bracket rust through, however).

Credit a great design and build quality (esp. for $9600 I paid), as well as regular PM on my part (average oil change every 2400-2500). Uses quart between every oil change - which is why 5qt. jugs are perfect for my Saturn!

The most unexpected repair was having to replace the rusted through rear lateral arms (not sure what they're called, but hold rear axle in place). Even though one had broken in half, still made a 75-80mph trip from Detroit to Chicago and back before I had someone look at it. Mechanic was amazed axle didn't come loose and cause a major accident.

Never expected car to last more than 100,000 miles. Every day this car starts brings a smile to my face. Best automotive choice I've ever made.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
