    We are looking at a 1999 Sc1, with about 62,000 miles, auto.has the 1.9
    engine, it is just a base unit no 3rd door or sun roof, no cruise. What is
    a fair price for this car? Some dings and scraps, but looks good and clean
    inside and believe to have been taken care off. Any advice good or bad? We
    have never had a Saturn before but have heard good things on them. It is
    going to be mostly for our 16 year old daughter.
    Thank you.

    Welcome and do check out www.kbb.com and msnbc autos for some nice info and
    pricing. The SC1 is a great car, good looking and fun to drive. The 1.9 is
    basically 100hp, slightly peppy and good on gas. A good safe car for your
    daughter too.

    Some things to look out for: Check the coolant and oil, make sure they are
    clean. Check service records. Check the head cover where the gasket is make
    sure it is clean and no oil residue is coming from it. (checking for leaks)

    Drive the car and sit in idle, if it vibrates excessively it needs motor
    If all else checks out, you have a nice car if the price is right. 62K miles
    on a 99 is good. From a personal owner, I would say $2-4K is good, but do
    check the KBB.
