Hmm, it depends. My parents custom ordered the car and picked it up in early '93. My mom drove it until November 2001. She gave it to me then when my Hyundai chucked a rod.

Got a '97 SC2. Saved it from the wholesale graveyard, "Super Sized" it with all new parts that I know that are going to fail and Sha-zamm- a real clean and dependable SC2 for less than 3k.

This was my first new car purchase. The dealership had it brought in from a sister dealership just for me to test drive because it was that closest one that had what I wanted on it. Evidently I am either wierd or too picky. So, It had 92 miles when I signed the papers.

4 months later - no regrets so far.
And only 58 more payments to go. . . . .

I traded in My 87 Honda Accord on a new '93 Saturn SL1, and traded that in on a new '97 SL1, an sold that and put the proceedes down on a new 2000 LS2 (now Called an L300), and traded that on a new 2002 SC2. No problems with the S-series, but I can't say the same for the "L".

I leased my first one (sl1) ,showed me the value of buying the next one; this is how I derived the nickname "mineallmine" as I loved the 1st one, not the thumbscrews of the residual costs.

Bought mine new. I like the fact that I knew I was first and only driver of my car (plus that overrated new car smell) but when I saw how saturated the used car market is I wished I would've bought slightly used. The problem with buying used from a retailer is they usually slap you with some high interest.

I'm still happy with my purchase.

Bought one used (not certified, cheaper!) from dealer, no problem and still runs extremely well. All other Saturns were bought new.

Happy Brand New

Brand New SL with 36 miles on it. Was looking for an inexpensive, reliable, commuter car. Found it. Will drive it until it dies or gets replaced by a Sky convertible.
