Used 2001 L300 here, barely used though; I bought it from my dad.. and he isn't exactly a racecar driver, he's very gentle on cars, so between that and the low mileage I got a barely used used car!

My 1998 SL was leased new
My 2001 SL1 was leased new
My 2003 L300 was purchased new

I just like the "new" part... but buying used on Saturn these days is a much better value for the resale drops like a rock - making a good deal for a used shopper

1999 SL2 - Used
2003 LW300 - Used... but new

You know those Saturn commercials where there are people standing in the lot and the cars are searching for their drivers? That's what happened to me.

I had been shopping for a month for a smaller SUV. After being thoroughly disappointed with my test drives and near my wits end, I decided to drive through the used lot at a local Chevy dealer. That's when I saw the wagon... not exactly the image my 24 year-old mind was looking for, but when I checked it out the deal was nothing short of perfection.

Like I said, it was in the used lot, but the odomoter read 2988 miles. Someone traded it in, and I got it for about $8,000-$9000 less than it was retail. I fell in love with the styling, and it just seemed right. Looking back I really feel this car was waiting to find its perfect driver, me! The clincher... it was put into service on my birth date in 2003.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Used with 18,273 miles from a car dealer who only sells fleet cars and lease vehicles. Mine was a GM lease car from Florida.
Pretty good deal, when I first went to see what they had, their inventory consisted almost completely of Saturn L200s from leases and Buick Park Avenues from a corporate fleet. Last time I was there, they had at least a dozen Pontiac Grand Ams.

My wife bought her 93 SL1 new. My 94 SL2 was used and abused by 2 college girls, her sister's 97 SL1 was used also. Alot to be said about used Saturns, we have spent more on fixing the new bought one that both used cars all together.

I bought my '04 Ion QC 5MT "new" from the dealer. It was a demo with 2,000 miles on it and with an employee discount from my uncle, I drove it away for less than $11,000.

n00. i bought the Binkymobile new last March even though it's an '03. It had 200 mi. on it and was a demo. Lorie bought her Ion QC-2 new and it had a whole 10 miles on it. The Vue was only the second vehicle i bought new. BabyBlue is Lorie's third, and her second Saturn; the Binkymobile is my first.

Default Re: Did You Buy Your Current Saturn New or Used?

I bought mine new at the end of June '01 with only 3 miles on it, and a couple of those were probably my test drive miles. All of my boyfriends cars have been used and have all had problems so I don't know if I would trust buying a used car. I plan on buying my next car new as well. I just feel better knowing the history of my car and how it was driven and I wouldn't get that feeling from a used car, even with a carfax on it.

I first leased my Saturn 2002 SL1. Then I bought it. It's everything I want in a car. I've had a couple friends go out, look at them and buy them also.

2001 SC2
Default Re: Did You Buy Your Current Saturn New or Used?

Bought my car, a 1994 SL2 in January of 1998. It had 42,000 miles on it at the time. Now it has 187,000 and is still running strong. How reliable is it? Drove it to Spring Hill last week to spend time with Charlie and the rest of the SaturnFans.com crew. 1600 mile 4 day weekend with no problems.

This is the 8th car I've driven since I got my driver's license 20 years ago. It's also been the most durable and reliable.

Last weekend, we were supposed to drive our 2001 SC2 coupe, at least until two days before leaving for Tennessee some young 25 year old lass decided to broadside the car. It only has 73,000 miles, comparatively, a rookie. (I should be picking it up from the bodyshop this week. ) We then decided to take my car, without even a second thought, regardless of the mileage.

THAT IS WHY I LOVE MY SATURN. HAKUNA MATATA!

...
93m SL1 "SLone" 145,000 mi. - RIP 10/08
94m SL2 "Ringo" 209,425 - ret. 7/31/07, RIP 10/08
01m SC2 "Lello" 129,000
07a GL VUE "Orbit" 48,900 - RIP 6/19/10
10a Ford Escape Hybrid - 8600 mi.
