i own a 2000 saturn ls2. there have been 2 recalls on the "l" series vehicles. although my model is considered the ls series, i have experienced the exact same symptoms with my vehicle as described with the l series recall. the most recent was the replacement of all four of the oxygen sensors in my vehicle which i believe to be the same problem as described with the l series vehicle and attributed to the saturn part known as the ignition control module. over a period of about 2 months i noticed: 1. a deterioration in idle quality 2. a reduction in overall engine power 3. the engine was hard to start these are exactly the same problems experienced with the icm recall on the "l" series. i had to replace, at my own expense, all 4 of the oxygen sensors for this vehicle. after contacting saturn, they insisted, based on my vin #, that my car was not included in this recall. it seems rather coincidental that i have experienced the exact same symptoms as 2 recalls on the same model year car from the same manufacturer. it is my belief that the recalls should be extended to cover the ls series vehicles as well. *tr

my 2002 saturn l300 died without warning or indication in the middle of a busy traffic intersection and would not restart. i had to have the car flatbed towed to my service center where they diagnosed the problem as a defective engine control module. the dealer, saturn of cool springs, acknowledged they have seen an increasing number of bad engine control modules on the l series. they did not offer to make any adjustment for the repair costs. after my independent service center installed the new engine control module, the car was still inoperable and had to be towed to saturn of cool spring so they could program the new engine control module and the body control module. i am concerned that without any prior indication of a problem the car could have died on railroad tracks or in some other more dangerous situation. *jb

the car was brought into the saturn dalership in dec 2003 to fix a recall on the electrical system: ignition: module. the recall on our vehicle was closed. the vehicle had not shown any problems since that time until recently, march 2, 2005. i went to start the car on the 2nd of march and the car was difficult to start. once started, the car ran very rough and lost power when i tried to give it gas. when my husband tried to drive the car later, the car backfired and seemed to be missing. we had our mechanic come look at initially that night, and he asked us to bring the car to his shop. although we would have to drive it very slow, he didn't see any reason why the car could not be driven to the shop instead of having it towed. my husband took the car to the shop and en route, the car lost power, the brakes went out, it then began to smoke so much my husband could barely see. he was able to pull the car over and bring it to a stop with the emergency brake. after stopping the car all he could do was get out and run before the car was engulfed in flames. it was a total loss. the recall on the car and the consequences of not fixing the recalled parts reads like a book of the events that occured. the fire is currently being investigated by our insurance company.*ak

currently the blower motor for the heater/defroster is not working. i have had many many problems with this car, inparticular with the brakes and steering. the rack and pinion was repaired twice. i have had brakes replaced twice, and recently the brake drums, rotators and pads. i have had the power steering pump repaired and from time to time need to have the steering wheel lubricated when it starts to make noise again. i am wondering if i am the only one with these problems or are others with this same car having the same problems. i do not feel safe when i am driving this car. i have brought it to the dealer many times to have things checked with wheels and steering. *ak

noticed my alarm remote key was becoming ultra sensitive and just figured the small watch-like battery needed to be replaced. shortly afterward on the same day i realized my interior dome light was dimming and my engine made a loud wrenching noise upon the initial start. upon leaving my place of destination the same evening i was unable to start my car at all. i figured the battery had died so i had a friend give me a jump to no avail. my car would turn over and automatically shut off less than two seconds later. this further validated that i most likely didn't have a starter issue on my hands. the other peculiar thing is that i noticed my car would not shift out of park so i could put it in neutral for the inevitable tow that followed. this left me concerned, and much to my dismay the dealership indicated that my bcm (body control module) had failed completely and threw my electrical system off the map. i've only had this car for a few years and the computer chip is failing, what gives? i had just recently dropped a few hundred dollars on the preventively maintenance package for 35000 that saturn recommends. this most recent incident resulted in $650 more. i am disgusted with the lack of response that i'm getting from the manufacturer, as several attempts have been made over the course of this week to file my concerns with their home office.*ak
