Default 2005 Relay high miles

My wife and I were in an accident and our car was totaled. Now we have the opportunity to purchase a 2005 Saturn Relay with 160,000 miles on it. The vehicle was on the road last for two months as taxi. Is 160,000 something we should be concerned about? Are saturns a car that can go to like 300,000 before you have to buy a new one?

any car with 160k is hit or miss. but my first question would be is why after two months would the taxi guy get rid of it.. they dont exchange cars unless a good reason. id try find out that answer.

The relay had a lot of issues under normal use and low miles. I would exercise extreme caution. The Relay has almost nothing in common with the other Saturns. It is a gm corporate van they sold under several gm badges.

u r lucky that car doesn't just **** the bed. Saturn Relay is possibly the worst car ever made. I have an 06 ' with 80 K mi. and have had nothing but aggravation and despair from day 1. GM garbage.
