Amazed with the quality and durability.
I have sl2 2002, 120000 km on it and running smooth. Best car, if compare to other sedan from 2002. This car sparks each car wash, still a clean and no rust. I changed many parts of course which is completely normal to give any car long life. I use only Mobile 1 syn oil and filter, change every 5 months. If you want to make it run like new, i suggest, change your spark plugs and cable. Change air filter at least once a year. This car is very easy to maintain. I will continue using it until my kids ask if they can have it. Everything still functions. Good sound system.
Bought a 2002sl2 from a small dealer in Rio Linda. I got a good price on it. Had a water leak that turned out to be the intake manifold. Plastic. Whoever had this car took very good care of it. Interior is immaculate. Only 137,000 miles on it. Not bad for 20 years old. Beautiful white color with cloth interior. Factory wheels. Great on gas. I'm very happy with it. I have a great mechanic that really knows his stuff. Parts r still plentiful too. It's a little fast to get me out of traffic jams and butt head drivers. It's a great car. Also it's loaded with extras.
Purchased NEW 2002. 5 speed manual...STILL on orig clutch at 168,000 miles. At 20 yrs plus, it is now my RAT ride... "Round About Town" ride. Do not push it much anymore...give the little guy a break. Everything is great...usual maintenance, tires, etc. I do keep oil in the trunk, as these babies love to drink...LOLOL. At 200,000 or Silver Anniv, I will have it "restored"...head liner damaged due to moon roof leak...some rust on rear door sills. Other than that, a joy to have. Radio & clock STILL work...LOL. I will be the caretaker of the RAT until I give to one of my grandsons...All enjoy your ride :-)>
