I bought my 2000 LS2 sedan used, but with only 8700 miles on it in 2000. It was practically new. It's been a great car and it is my second Saturn.

Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I bought my daughter a 98 SC2 5 speed coupe 3 years ago.

I feel in love with it and drove it whenever she was not in it.

Now she has it at college, but I love to drive it when she comes home to visit.

I wished I had started buying Saturns years earlier when they were still Saturns.

This little car is peppy, runs great and gets great mileage.

A tree recently fell on it during an ice storm, but this tough little car held up well enough for the insurance to rebuild it.

1992 SC
2004 VUE Red Line
Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

All of my Saturns have been used.

First came the white '95 SL1:


Which was then traded for the silver '01 SC1, which I still miss dearly. I wish I could have kept it and bought the SC2 as well:


Which was then traded for my current yellow '01 SC2:


And I've owned the SC2 since September 19, 2006, and it's changed a bit since then. I'll hopefully keep this Saturn for a long time, but I'm looking at most likely purchasing another used S-series as a daily driver and keeping the yellow as my project/fun car.

There have been other Saturns in the mix, but those are the main ones. I should probably include the red and gray, which I bought from a member of this board on May 25, 2007. I was putting way too many miles on the car, so it's now my dad's car (Green93SL1 on these boards, he's mostly a lurker). He takes excellent care of the car, so don't worry, she's in good hands!

1995 SL2
Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

My 95 SL2 I bought from a private party used obviously. It was a California car, it had 125k on it when I bought it and is now approaching 174k! I lost the AC unit on it a few yrs ago and don't see the need to drop that kind of cash to replace it... and other than smoking a deer a few weeks ago it has been the best car I have owned to date!

My first-ever "brand new" car in my middle-aged life was a 1998 SL2. My current Saturn is a used 2004 Ion 3 which I bought (from the dealer) about a year-and-a-half ago and generally speaking, I'm happy with it. I hope to continue to drive my Ion until I run it into the ground.

Default Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I bought both of mine brand new, (and I still have both).

'97 SW2 - Drove right off the lot with maybe 8 miles on it. (90K later still have it)
'03 VUE - Factory ordered with the features I wanted. Drove it off with something like 4 miles on it. (The dealership moved down the street from the time of it's delivery to the store to my picking it up, plus it had to be driven off the truck )

...
Now a proud Subie owner.

2 years ago, bought a 2002 Vue, used. 16 year old rolled it about 10 months later and walked away with a scratch on her elbow and a sore back. Have TWO teen drivers, promptly bought 2 more Vues. An 07 White Vue, barely used, and an 08 Black Vue new. Hope these 2 last a little longer!
