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

I have 76k on my 99 Homecoming Edition SL2. I use it mostly for getting to and from work, which is <5 miles roundtrip. I bought it in Washington State, but I have since made the trip to Washington DC and Ft Campbell KY as the Army has moved me around with no problems whatsoever.

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

My 1997 SC2 has about 89,500 miles on it right now and it had 16,000 miles on it when I bought it in 2000. It will probably be somewhere in the mid to upper 90's by the time I trade her in for a new car(2010 Honda Civic coupe most likely) sometime late next summer.

WOW! You may consider donating the battery to the Smithsoniam or contacting Ripley's Believe It or Not when it finally dies! Guiness World Records also comes to mind. Did you do anything "special" to get that type of longevity out of your battery? Is it the original Delco?

Just 110K on my 1996 SL. Runs strong and smooth. Last fill was 44.1 mpg.

Someone at work has a 98 SL with 320K. Original engine, but it is getting tired and smokey.

1999 SL2
Default Re: how many miles do you have on your saturn?

My '99 SL2 will have 180k by the end of the month. Been putting in a bit of work lately (water pump, etc this past weekend) and still have a bit more to do but she runs so well I'm happy to do it.

My goal is 225k. Have been seeing a trace of white smoke come out of the exhaust on occasion and that has been a bad sign for cars I've had in the past. Really hope that isn't the case with this one.

My signature displays my current mileage... I joined this forum today. By Tuesday next week I will have another 1000 miles or so on the odometer. Driving from Ohio to Chicago, IL area to pickup daugher inlaw for transport to Fort Campbell, then return to northeast Ohio. Was at Fort Benning, GA just 3 weeks ago.

Typically, though, I drive about 200 miles per week around home.

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

Okay, I posted on one of these fourums three weeks ago I believe, back when I was still working on my car and it was at about 275,000 miles, it's now at about 278,000 miles. 1996 Saturn SC2, new radiator and emissions controls, all else is original.
Will I set the record if I keep this pace up?

That's what the math is coming out as... It's been consistently in that range for 5 years of heavy driving. Bought it with 200k on it when my old chevy died on me and opted not to fix it.
