Way to go TimmyMac! Good work and great car!
We have a 1999 Saturn SL2 and would get another and another but this dang '99 won't wear out! We haven't put a lot of miles on it but it's still impressive that she has the same basic 'body parts' she had 12 years ago and still rides around like new. We like that the doors are backed up with solid panels and the body itself has this 'memory' thing. When the car got dinged one time (someone drove into our home, through the garage door and pushed both cars into the house), the police estimated several thousand dollars damage. After they left, we heard a loud POP from the front of the car and Behold, it hath healed itself! No joke - the big dent had simply undented itself. She still needed some cosmetic work but, considering what had happened to her, she stood up really well. Not sure if the SL1 has a back seat that folds down to give you a long trunk like ours, but that's another huge help when we're travelling and need more room!
Just wanted you to know that you got yourself a dependable car and hopefully you will have many enjoyable and safe miles in your 'new' Saturn!
