When you search for vehicles with ultra-high mileage on Autotrader, you almost always end up with the same results: pickup trucks and big SUVs. These vehicles cover large distances frequently, often for commercial purposes, and it’s no surprise at all to see them with high mileage figures. But occasionally, you run across something like this 1993 Saturn SL2.
Its mileage figure is almost unbelievable: It’s covered an amazing 695,000 miles from new. Normally, I would simply assume this is a typo, but I checked the Carfax, and this one is legit.
Here’s the overview: This SL2 was sold new in Tennessee, leaving its original dealership in November 1992. It only had 167,000 miles by October 2001. Sure, that’s 20,000 miles per year, but what came next is far more impressive. Four years later, the car had done another 100,000 miles, and the next 100,000 came three years after that, which put it at around 370,000 miles in 2008. The 400,000 mark was in 2009, 500,000 came in 2012, and 600,000 came in early 2015.
And now it’s rounding 700,000 miles — and it could be yours. This SL2, finished in a greenish-blue that’s peeling off the hood and featuring a ripped interior, is offered by Steve White Auto Group in Greenville, South Carolina for a mere $1,495. If Saturn still existed, it would be great to display this vehicle in a corporate headquarters to show people what the little brand can do, but since it doesn’t, maybe it should go to someone who would appreciate its amazing record.
