Arrow Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Not on Craigslist but a quick search lists these on Cargurus near Calumet City, IL: https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...startYear=2002

Apparently, there are more SL's available than I thought

2002 SC2, 5sp, 156K, $2,500

A little pricey but assuming there isn't a crazy amount of rust, it seems like a solid car. Even the sunroof works!
https://longisland.craigslist.org/ct...208236373.html

I also saw this 2000 SL1, that I thought had the wrong year listed at first due to the 2nd gen front end. After looking at the rest of the pictures though, you can tell it is a 3rd gen with a 2nd gen hood, bumper, and headlights swapped over. I can't tell if they did the fenders, but it all lines up surpassingly well for being miss matched gens.

Not exactly a great deal (asking $3,990), but a 5 spd 1997 SW2, looks rust free, with only 68k miles.

Car is in Garden Grove, CA.

Arrived in California last night, might look at Elantras while I am here and drive one home

Default Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Yeah, only a few thousand more gets me a 2015-2016 car, pretty well loaded, with around 65k~72k miles. Got a half dozen cars lined up to look at tomorrow, might drive one of them home. We're looking for something my wife can drive, so auto trans.

If none of those pan out, I might inquire about that 5 spd wagon at maybe half the price
Would live to drive that home. Wife would be a little unhappy we have another manual trans in the driveway and I will likely have to junk a car, probably the '97 SC2 that I've been scavenging parts from, to make room in the driveway.

Lots of beautiful, but overpriced Saturns here in SoCal. A couple of 3rd gen coupes.

The SC2 would be a decent deal - if it were a manual tranny....

The boys over at KBB have yet to figure out that Saturn buyers prefer a manual tranny....

A '99 DOHC wagon for $350. It's an auto though. Less of an issue is that it has a busted knuckle. It's about 20 minutes from me.

Somebody buy my coupe and I'll go get it.

Default Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Good question. Here's the reality:
1) I bought the car for $500. It was really a $300 car with $200 worth of new tires.
2) The manual transmission shifts poorly, especially into third. Probably worn friction cones. I bought another from LKQ, but I would need that to put a 5 speed in the wagon.
3) The windshield is scratched. It sort of sucks.
4) The rear window defogger does not work. Probably due to all the tint that was on it.
5) The worst part - the rear drag link mounts as I documented in my thread. I did a temporary repair but really they need to be torn out and rewelded.
6) exterior clear coat is faded and chipping.
7) A/C does not work.
8) Leaks into the trunk and there is some rust there. Needs the body joint sealed and clean & paint.
9) I think I've got an EGR issue. Haven't been driving it much so I haven't looked at it yet. This is recent.
10) Mag wheels have some corrosion. Slow leak in the left rear.

The good parts, also all documented in my thread.
A) All new nicopp brake lines, hoses, calipers, wheel cylinders. Original M/C.
B) I fixed all the door tabs and have new insulation in the doors.
C) New driver's window motor.
D) Interior is pretty clean.
E) Aluminum valve cover.
F) Front subframe is decent.
G) Motor doesn't burn much oil. Maybe a quart in 3000 miles.
H) Fuel economy has been decent. Last fillup was 30 mpg.
I) Drives straight, smooth, and true. Tires are good.

I've put about $1500 total into it. I am sure I could get $500 for it, and I'd be shocked (but happy) to get $1000.

Default Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Here's my 2002 SL2 with 63,274 original miles on craigslist in NYC!

https://newyork.craigslist.org/que/c...211319301.html

It was my sister's car. She's the original owner and gave it to me. I fixed all known issues (with help from this forum) and drove it till her registration and insurance expired but never registered it in my name (I went as far as getting a state inspection for it). I am selling it because I have 3 cars already registered and don't need a 4th. My cars are all diesels (have been for the last 20 years). I prefer diesels so that's the reason I am selling it.

Quaker state Synthetic engine oil and filter changed less than a few hundred miles ago. Transmission oil and filter changed less than 1000 miles ago. Brake fluid flushed a few hundred miles ago. New fuel filter, spark plugs, PCV valve and passenger side top engine mount,

Paint looks good. No engine codes. Brakes & tires exc, stainless exhaust.
Well maintained car everything works including cold AC!

Wow, a year older than mine and 27K miles less than me.
how do you price an old car with low miles, anyway?

At least this listing has decent photos, I guess because he's a dealer. The front tag is funny - certainly the first mod I made, removing mine
He's also got a 2000 Saturn LW2 SW 72k miles - $3,995. That engine bay looks so funny to me (not an SL)
