maximum mileage on a 2006 saturn ion 3?
I want to get a 2006 Saturn ion 3 as my first car.
it has 105,000 miles
they want $8000 for it and id have to finance it for 4 years.
im wondering what the maximum mileage on it might be,
to know if it will last me past my financing time if i take good care of it
and if it will be worth the money.
There is no maximum mileage. Most cars are manufactured to run to 100,000 miles without major maintenance. You should go to the local Saturn dealer and ask for the maintenance schedule. Then go over it with your mechanic to see what the price of maintenance repairs are going to be over the 4 year payment period. Factor that into your budget leaving some extra for possible unexpected repairs and then make your decision if its a good deal for you.
I dont think there are any Saturn dealerships around anymore since they dont make Saturns. The following link will give you a good idea what ownship may be like and what kinda miles you could expect: http://www.edmunds.com/saturn/ion/2006/consumer-reviews.html?sub=coupe
well what is an average high that cars reach when you take good care of them? thanks (:
Well on a quick search of a 500 mile raidius I could only find one with over a 100k mile for sale which would make me wonder why there arent more higher milage cars listed. Also according to cargurus priceing the one your looking at seems to overpriced comparded with my local comps here in FL. Unless the car looked flawless I would probly keep looking. The average lifetime milage is not stated any where online for these cars, so theres no definitive number however all the ones listed for sale in my area have under 100K miles if that means anything.
