2001 Saturn L300 from North America
Should have bought another Suburu
Four days after I bought my Saturn LW2, my dash light came on with "Reduce Speed" (which reduced my speed to @ 20 mph and I had to pull off the road!), then the " Service Engine Soon", followed. This has become a daily occurence. One time my engine and power shut off while I was driving! I have had it in and out of the shop for months, but my dealership can't fix it! It occurs only when driving in slow speed streets, not highways or freeway driving. These occurences' have no pattern. It has got be stranded in the middle of moving intersections so its becomes dangerous!!!#*!
The codes still reads TPS Sensor-Malfunction, Veh Speed Sensor, PEM-Fault etc. They have replaced the TPS sensor. mass air flow sensor, air filter, AHHhhhh.
Anyone know what might be happening so I can give my mechanics some clues.
Road noise is loud, feel the road in the steering, wish the electric window buttons were on the door, drivers side lock doesn't engage with my alarm key pad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hi - I have a 2001 L300 and I just started having the same problem, but mine as 109K miles. I guess I have been lucky so far. Just had mine in the dealer two days ago and they could not do anything to fix it. Just happened again today. Since mine is fairly old it will not be a hard deision to get rid of it if this keeps up. Good luck!!
