My 2001 Saturn SL2 is passing several milestones this weekend.
Friday the odometer turned 600,000 miles. The transmission was replaced at about 400,000 miles, I am on third engine. The first made it to about 495,000 miles, replaced with a used engine that I got about 100,000 miles on and then put another used engine in it which is running like new.
Monday the car will celebrate its 15th birthday with me as original owner.
The car has been in most of the contiguous United States from Key West Florida to the coast off the state of Washington. Essentially the places it has not been is North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan and the northeastern states above Pennsylvania. It has gone from Georgia to Arizona about five times.
Pictures included on this article showing car and odometer.
DwightTO SUBSCRIBE This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
