the transmission shifts gears harshly & erratically. it's not only uncomfortable but dangerous as well. saturn is aware of the problem because i have a copy of a technical bulletin(#93-t-22a) that they issued which describes the problem. i wrote to the president of saturn (don hudler) in april 1997. the reply i received from his office was that since the warranty is up, the need for repairs is unfortunate and they refused to reimburse me $750. they also said that just because they issue a technical bulletin doesn't mean that the car has any problem. so, after having it fixed in 4/97, the car was fine until 8/98. i'm having the same exact problem again. i can give you a copy of the technical bulletin and letter from saturn if you need it. i know i'm not the only one with this problem. dozens of mechanics have told me that they've encountered this problem plenty of times with saturns. when i took the car to lee myles transmissions, they knew what was wrong with the trany before they even took it for a test d

i am still content with my 1993 saturn but disappointed that a part that should have lasted much longer failed in october, 1999. i was looking forward to maintaining the low mileage on my care, but when the odometer and speedometer froze at 30,555 miles, all credibility and remaining market value deceased because my mileage is stuck. i was told that i needed a "cluster" at the cost of $525.15. an odometer should last much longer than 30,555 miles, but my extended warranty expired in 1998. *ak
