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

My wifes 98 SL2 currently has 273,000 miles on the entire car with original motor and original clutch.
It has since become my daily driver and I use it to commute aprox. 90 miles round trip on my trek into NYC every day. Burns oil of course, but I still change oil & filt. every 3k. Still delivering 31 to 34 mpg depending on traffic flow.
Body still looking decent other than a couple of minor encounters which i refer to as battle damage.
So if you see me on the taconic parkway, give a wave to the guy in the red Saturn, (or the finger depending on your mood.)

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

230k on the body, struts, suspension, transmission,
120k on the engine, the last one probably went from over-heating, no cooling fan switch

99sl2 5speed synthetic oil every 4k-4500

have modified drivers seat to be as big as a maxima, I call it the saxima
i test drove camry and maximas until i had the same amount of room, i ground down the wheel well and pounded it in with a hammer for more foot room, and cut the bucket seats flat, also carved out more room on the console near my right leg, ahh relief

my last 95 sl2 died at 200k exact with original everything, automatic, in -7 degree weather, because a spark plug was loose(cold sucked into the engine)

I just picked up a 2001 SC2 with 115K miles on it. I drove over 400 miles on the last tank of gas, and I was getting 37MPG in half highway, half city driving. I'm very pleased.

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

141,500 on my 1998 SL2. Almost all highway miles -- got car in 2007 with 13K miles, had sat in FL so had to replace calipers, belt and engine mounts. AOK since then except had to replace ICM three times (problem was in ground and coil packs and wasn't diagnosed correctly). Otherwise general maintenance / wear items. Runs great, looks almost new, uses no oil, 34+ mpg. I love this car and am shooting for at least 300K.

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

202000, I bought it at auction with a cracked head at 167,000 installed a remanufactured head by myself but did not replace the timing chain or sprockets, no problems so far. (I always worry that I sould have replaced the timing chain when I was in there but diddnt.)

No leaks and no no oil burning, It used to burn oil until I started substuting Marvel Mystery Oil for a quart or oil at every change.

Also replaced the valve body with a junk yard part in the tranny since it was slam shifting.

Last week I ripped the headliner out since it was dangling for about a year and driving me nuts. Right after it truned 200,000 I replaced teh PCV, EGR, plugs and wires, runs like a top very smooth idle even in gear with the AC on full blast. No misses or pops or rattles, just a good running car.

Since buying my first saturn and realizing how easy they are to fix I have bought and sold 4 more. I am also keeping a 1991 SC1 on my farm for parts.

Also just bought a 2002 sc2 5 speed with 166,000 and had to replace the shifter cables to get it on the road. This car is a cream puff, all newish inside and out. I dont think they get any better than this one.

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

@210,000 right now, Original motor and trans (5 speed)
Got it for $18.00 (cost of a case of beer) because the previous owner was fed up replacing front brakes every 15/20k. The brakes would shudder violently at hwy speeds when applied, but looked new.
Seems this is a common problem with these cars.
