I'm pretty sure I remember reading here that if the trip odometer has miles on it, it most likely means the mileage odometer works too.

Not necessarily true...If you haven't had the fun of a First Gen Odometer Gear breaking on you, and having to replace it... I've replaced more then my fair share of Odometer Gears over the years- The writeup that is posted on OdometerGears.com; is my writeup- that the company stole VERBATIM from Saturnfans, when I posted the original step process back in 2007/2008.

There is no rhyme or reason as to when they can break- regardless of the mileage on the either the trip odometer or the mileage odometer....

If you see something like that in the future, you can offer a little cash to swap tires and wheels - yours for his

That is a great looking first gen. Wonder what is up with the black rear bumper, though?

(Replacing pictures in my gallery.) I would be highly surprised if this mileage was actually true... but then again, if it is a one owner that is older and the car has been garage kept, then I could see this car being in excellent condition.

The sawtooth gear alloys on this car, make it worth the $1950... those are extremely sought after now; as others may attest to- the car looks very good.
I would like this one but really don't have the need for another vehicle in the driveway. My youngest son is 14, but we're talking about a truck for him when the time comes since we can always use another truck on the property.

Like most in the area, it's likely rust free. One owner with an extensive maintenance history. IF there were an odometer problem, the history would likely reveal when the problem arose.

If you know Saturn History, the black bumpers on cars were used as markers to designate SOHC engines from DOHC engine cars. The VIN is listed, and one could look up if this is a true SL2, via the VIN Decoder over on differentracing.com
My guess would be that somewhere along the way in this car's single ownership, that it was involved in a rear end accident which damaged the lower bumper, and a replacement was pulled from another first gen SOHC car.

Found another 1st gen with gear tooth wheels. Actual milage might be something to question but it looks really nice, and it has gear tooth.

I like this one a lot better. I know that I may likely be in the minority here, but I far prefer the leather interior.

Pretty sure I counted the digits for the engine code and it is an SL2. Also noted the 130 mph speedo in the odometer pic and adjustable headrests

That was my guess too, but noted that it is really dark and shiny (most SL/SL1 bumpers have turned gray by now). They either painted a bumper gloss black, or did Back to Black/something similar to an SOHC car bumper
