People, I am having problems with my 2001 L300; actually I bought it used with only 25,000 miles on it, and within 2 weeks I had to call GM and complain about a problem that was going to cost 3,000 to repair. This all started happening in 2006, and since then I have experienced the same exact problems others have, including the car being parked one day and refusing to start-up, until I had it towed to the Saturn dealer and paid over 200.00 dollars to have the ignition repaired.
However, because of being "BROKE", I can't afford to have any repairs done on the vehicle, so I continue to drive it and it's doing fine.
Believe me, this winter I had a car full of rich orange anti-freeze all over the floor of the front passenger side - Radiator core is dead.
Car sputters sometime - not sure what that is.
Car is sluggish when driving - not sure what that is.
Car jerks when take off - Believe the trans is having problems.
In Illinois we have to have an "emissions test"; it failed and was told the O2 sensor and some other sensor is bad. These will be the only thing I will repair, and I will repair it on my own to save money.
The problems I have been experiencing have been a part of the vehicle since I bought it. Never even got the first problem fixed. Sorry others spent so much money, but I will continue to drive it until it simply stops.
The car looks brand new, and I only have 65,000 miles on it, but it is a mechanical wreck and I just don't have the dollars to pay for it, so maybe it would have been better had you all not put the money into it. Perhaps it's like some people who are ill all their lives, but still kicking.
