Had the RL towed today. I came back from a week in the field (military for camping with weapons and stuff) and started up my car and it was skipping bad. Started to smoke white with a tint of blue, and black. Called the local dealer and asked about a rental, had it all taken care of by the time i got there.
The tow company didn't exactly know what they were doing, scratched the tailpipe on the way up and left it in gear when it was about a foot from being down. The guy didn't want to give me a copy of the ticket so i asked the service manager to make a photo-copy, which he did. That got the driver a little worried about his future as a tow truck operator.
Well when i went to pick up the rental they had run out of the full size cars so i had to get an SUV. Saturn only covered $35 a day, so i ended up paying $11.30 extra a day for a fully loaded explorer with leather (feels good on the buttcheeks).
The dealer said they would call me on monday when they figure out what was wrong with the car. I asked one of the techs before i left and he said something along the lines that it may be the MAF sensor. My belief is that the CPS wasn't put in correctly. Has anyone else had a problem like this?
Anyway i am very satisfied with the service that i got from Saturn and the Roadside Assistance.

I hope it was towed on a flat bed that is what the manual tells you to do.The RL sits too low to be towed by a tow truck alone.

I'll be bringing it, hopefully they have it fixed soon. I just don't want to deal with Saturn of Augusta.

The time mine got towed it was lowered all ready. The guy scratched his head a minute and I have dual exhaust. He got it up there flawlessly. I couldnt belive it.

The dealer gave me a rental and I told the guy I may drive to see a customer. He mentioned a 150mile limit. When I got back He tried to charge me mileage. I said fine--
give me the bill and I will get saturn to give me my money back. He declined to
bill me. Coward..

Well I just got my car back, the MAF was wired wrong and the plugs were full of carbon and soaked in fuel. They rewired the MAF and replaced the plugs. I have the service order at home for a more detailed explanation.

That sounds like what is wrong with mine. Taking it in tomorrow for the ecu, seal recall and the missing and sputtering I had yesterday. Hope that is all it is.

Did yours have the ECU done also?

Welldamn!!

I just went out to leave work and when I started it, it felt as though one cylinder was hitting. I t bareley ran, but no check engine light.

I turned it off, took the key out and it gave me about five seconds of still running on one cylider. I guess dieseling.

Local Saturn had me call the roadside service. They said about an hour and a half wait. This sucks. Hope it all gets worked out. They have a loaner for me already and waiting, but I will probably get there after service closes, so won't get to know what is wrong until tomorrow.

Sounds like what was wrong with mine. I got in the car again this morning and the same thing was happening again, the car is going back to Saturn and if it happens again I will be extremely pissed off. Wonder if they can do anything about this. I do not blame anything on the dealer, they have been awesome. But this car is getting on my last nerve.
