Just Curious,

damn, deliveryman, you sure rack on a lot of miles. I don't even have half the miles on my 15 year-old car when I sold it.

My saturn is at 4400 miles.

frostypanic, why not get an Aura? That car is the shiznit.

as 06 ION2 said earlier, I did have to replace the coolant fan at 145K and just this past week my alternator died on me. This was the first time that it left me stranded. My battery light came on and I was about 50 miles from home. I told dispatch that I was through for the night and going to try to make it home. I was doing good just running on battery power until I had to turn my headlights on. But when I lost the lights on my dash I said it is time to pull over. I was about 20 miles from home then and I got my son-in-law to bring his booster box out to rescue me. That thing got me the rest of the way home. I did unplug one of my headlights and both my drl lights to conserve energy. Saturn wanted $306.00 just for the part if they had one. No Saturn store in Atlanta had one is stock, but I managed to get one at O'Reily's for $199.00. Sorry to ramble on--but it was an interresting night.

Hey, close to 300k is pretty good for an alternator! I chewed through 1 in 96,000 miles in my old SL1 and 154,000 in my SC2. The SL2's is still hanging in there (for now!).

You're putting up some good numbers also. Are you doing about 50 or 60K a year? Have you had any problems so far?

I was in a crazy situation for a while, doing 300 miles a day driving up and down the length of New Hampshire. I did at least 1/2 of those miles last year, and have since settled to a more reasonable driving schedule, though the miles do keep adding up...

I've gone through a few sets of tires, brakes, coutless oil changes, and have tried to keep up as best I can with the other regular maintenance things. Was in a minor accident with it once. I hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying this, but I've had no unexpected wear-related problems at all. ::knock-on-wood:::

Needless to say, I've been ~very~ happy with the car. We've spent a lot of time together.

Just wanted to chime in and say hello deliveryman! I saw his ION in Spring Hill at one of our Homecomings in Summer 2005 when he was at 145,000 miles. Actually, it was that trip that your cooling fan went out, remember?

Hope all is well and keep up the miles! He keeps his ION in great shape BTW!
