1997 SL2
Default 97 SL2 5 speed for sale $300

Hi there, after 6 years of being a Saturn owner, I think it's finally time to let go of the ol girl. It's a 1997 SL2, DOHC, 5 speed manual.The other day during a normal stop one of the rear brake lines under the driver door area failed, so the car currently has no brakes. Wouldn't take much to get it up and running, but I just don't have the time and space, having two other vehicles and a boat to jockey around.

Current items needing attention, are the brake lines, exhaust downpipe just before cat is shot, cat still appears to be good, RT front wheel bearing is going, but that's not an immediate fix IMO. Tires are getting worn, all are around 3/32"

The rest is just typical of a 20 year old car with 257K on it. Interior is fair, except for the driver seat (poor) AC system is functional, but has a small leak so not working. I last used it about 2 years ago and it worked well. Sunroof has been sealed shut. Right rear window is detached from the regulator I never used it so never bothered me. As with most S-Series, she has a drinking problem: 1 quart every 800 miles or so. And minor damage to the rear left from being rear-ended. No effect on the car.

Work done in the past few years: cylinder head job in 2014 with timing chain. All new strut assys. RH control arm, RH drive axle, All new front brakes. muffler.

Overall it's been a great car, reliable, easy to work on. Great gas mileage. I routinely average 39 MPG on the hwy. Not gonna lie it's a bummer to see her go. Pics are posted in the gallery. Looking for $300, otherwise, to the JY she goes.
