Default WTB Any Model Saturn in the Buffalo, NY Area

Howdy all,

As my post in the S Series Forum indicates, I'm in need of a car. And of course, why else would I be in a Saturn Forum if I didn't want a Saturn? Well I'm looking for something that's relatively inexpensive and has been well-maintained throughout it's life. I'm not picky at all, I'm just looking for a reliable car that will last me for a few years. I'd appreciate any help. Either post a reply or e-mail me at MrPiBB112@aol.com

Thanks!

Figure'd I'd give it a bump.

I'm in Rochester, and there are plenty for sale around here - What kind of price range are you looking for?

Idea

My 1996 SC2 is available. I am in the process of taking off the performance parts at the moment. Most likely the header and downpipe, the custom exhaust system, and the KYB struts will remain. Make an offer but don't delay. I'll try to get it listed here in the Classifieds later tonight. But if it is still in my driveway on Veterans' Day (November 11th) then it is going to CarMax. This car has been exceptionally well maintained; you can see everything that was ever done to it and a bunch of enlargable images at my webpage: http://home.comcast.net/~David96SC2/.

CarMax uses the Kelly Blue Book web site (http://www.kbb.com/). When I entered my mileage (rounded to 157,000), my ZIP code (20876), the transmission (manual 5-speed), the condition (good), and the options (air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power door locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, AM/FM stereo cassette with equalizer, dual front air bags, ABS 4-wheel disc, sliding sun roof, rear spoiler, alumin alloy wheels) it said the trade-in value is $2,025. Don't forget it has remote keyless entry and the traction control! That is what CarMax will give me for it.

Another option is theataris' car in Cincinnati: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...threadid=26403

This is easily the nicest, most well-maintained SC2 you're going to find. I would have bought this car a long time ago, had I been living on the East Coast.

Thanks for the compliment! We could have met halfway in Dallas Texas on Friday! Almost halfway. It would have been 1,688.17 miles for you and was 1,354.39 miles for me.

Great looking car, David! Unfortunately, I'm not in the neighborhood for a stick right now. Guess I should've mentioned that.

theataris - thanks for the offer, man. I'll get back to you if nothing else comes up.

Applefool - Currently, the $2K range. Yeah I know, not much to work with.

That is fine. Some people have strong preferences for one transmission over the other. 9 out of 10 people don't drive manual transmission cars for whatever reason so I am not surprised. Other people that appeared to be interested in this car also backed away when they learned it did not have an automatic transmission.

Sure, because we need to be sure that we are getting something that will make us happy. For a long time I had been thinking about getting the car repainted another color but the expense scared me and it was hard to justify for a car with so many miles. In 1 more week I won't be seeing purple!

Sounds like that would be a good option for you. If Theataris is willing to do a halfway thing from cincinnati, that would mean a 3-4 hour drive for each of you. I drove down to cleveland not too long ago from rochester, and it was about 6 hours or so, and a nice ride to boot.

Well, doesn't look like meeting halfway is too feasible for the time being. Thank you, though!

If anyone has anything else, let me know.

Sheesh! Less than 1 week ago I flew halfway across the U.S. and drove a car 1,350 miles (about 27 hours including a 3 hour nap, 5 gasoline station stops, and a few rest room stops) all the way home!
