Saturn Outlook Problem
Average Mileage: 64,250 mi (45,000 mi - 103,000 mi)
I would like to see if anyone else has had to have their transmission replaced. My Saturn has 47K miles, I have never towed anything and I went to put it into reverse and it wouldn't go into gear. After having it towed to mechanic, I was told the transmission needed to be replaced (besides reverse, 4th and 5th gear were also gone). I have never had a transmission go out...and I do all of the maintenance required.

Transmission 62,000-3rd,5th gear went out while driving, no reverse. Very dangerous situation. Rebuilt transmission still under warranty. Wish I had reversed at dealership while purchasing.
Out of warranty 5 years, 103,000 Timing belt issue $2100.00 No recall for this year but recall for 2007 same issue. (WHAT?)
No more GM-GMC Dodge Vehicles.

Didn't even have my car a year and transmission went out. First I was told timing chain but it was transmission. I got my car used at 84,000 and had gotten to 103,000 in almost a year and this happened.

Lost 3rd gear and reverse. Required reman. transmission replacement. GM covered after much arguing, even though the warranty was expired.
