Drove until the wheels fell off
By KMH93 on
1993 Saturn S-Series SL2 4dr Sedan
Bought car new in 1993. I am finally going to put this car to rest on its 17th Birthday. It has been aweome. It currently has 527K miles on the originally engine. I got the 5 speed std and have replaced the clutch once at almost 300K miles (Wierd). I drive lots of miles but mostly freeway. I have performed standard maintenance on the car from day one. I changed oil every 5 or 6K but I have used only synthetics. 17 yrs major repairs are 2 timing chains, three upper engine mounts, one fuel pump, two catalytic converters, mufflers, two wheel hubs,front seat and one AC sys conversion. She Needs valve job (Repair Cost 1700, bought the car for 12K) last car payment 12/1996. Outlasted 6 other cars.
Fuel milage, Only left me stranded once with a flat...The spare had dry rotted in the trunk. Still makes me laugh.
Never liked the interior plastic. Dash board craked from Heat of sun at 400K miles.
