My SC had close to 200k when I traded it in. The original engine was still running well on a healthy diet of 5w-30 (1qt every 600 miles) when I traded her in on the VUE...

I felt the oil burning may have contributed to the well being of the engine...

Mine's at 301,600 km, which is about 190,000 miles. it enjoys a very unhealthy diet of a quart of oil every 200 km (120 miles). The rings will be done if and when this weather ever warms up...

I'm probably the 2nd closest in Mileage on an S-Series behind Luke....

I'm at 330,859 miles (03/25/08)
Original Engine/Automatic Transmission

The car still runs well getting consistently between 33-40 miles per gallon, but it is starting to go through oil (5W-30)...I am considering going to a higher grade oil in the Summer and doing an MMO Soak.

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

I'm a day away from 100,000 miles on my current car (01 SC2). My last car (02 SC1 - pictures in the gallery after the accident) was just about a week away from 200,000 miles. The only things that were replaced on that one was the coil packs and general maintenance items (brake pads and shoes, front wheel bearings, tie rod ends). That car was a champ, for sure. It ran almost like new, except it burned about a quart of oil every thousand miles. My SC2 only looses about half a quart every 3000 miles.
