Question Did You Buy Your Current Saturn New or Used?

Did you buy your Saturn new or used? If you bought it used, was it a "certified" used Saturn?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Bought new. Was the first and probably last new car i'll ever buy. Someone else can be a beta tester. Used cars are a much better value!

Bought both the Wagon and VUE brand new. Odometer read 5 miles and 4 miles respectively upon delivery. No regrets.

My 1996 SL1 was purchased used, by my family in October of 1998 with 41,000 miles on the odometer. It wasn't certified by Saturn, as we bought it from a Chrysler dealer. I don't ever want to purchase a used car again, except possibly from a Saturn retailer (certified). While I love my Saturn, I had a nightmare experience with it not knowing about the head gasket recall, and neither I nor my family knew that we had to register with Saturn Corp. in order to get recall information, etc. With a used car, you never really know how the car was (if at all) taken care of. My mechanic told me that my Saturn may have even taken on water before we bought it, as the wiring harness and firewall had water damage, and that the frame of the car may be bent. I was actually quite reluctant about buying the car at the time because the saleslady knew nothing about it(I was only 14, so nobody listened to me); she didn't even know it was on the inventory. Anyhow, while we did have a pretty severe problem with our Saturn, it was all solved after about a year, and it is running really well (knock on wood, save for the possible coolant and oil leaks I wrote about in another post!), and I would never trade it in for anything!

We bought our 1999 SW2 used last April from a Saturn dealer in Manassas, VA. It had 21,000 miles at the time and now has about 33,000. So far (besides a broken engine mount) it's been a good little car. Many thanks to the good people on this message board for their valuable advice with tis purchase.

My first Satty, 1996 SL2 was used but only had 8,200 km. Drove it to 90,000 km. My second one, 2000 LS1, was demo and had 3,500 km when I bought it. Drove it to 59,000 km. Bought my 2002 Black Silver FWD VTi VUE spanking new.

Sounds like a graduated Saturn experience, huh?!

My SL2 was bought new to replace a Ford Escort that racked up 100K miles in five years. However, it will be the last new car I buy for awhile. I might look into a used/certified L-Series sedan (or wagon) with the V6.

Used, a private owner. I don't think this one will go anytime soon, but for my next car, I'll probably get a 3rd-generation SC2 used. I'd like a 3-door
