Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I think that is a fair price since a rebuilt transmission for your car would run around 2,000.00. That's just the transmission without labor. If I recall correctly, your vehicle had a recall for transmission problems. Have you contacted GM to see if they will honor it?
The recall doesn't specify an engine size. It just states 2008 saturn VUE vehicles equipped with the 6T70 6 speed automatic transmission. Check safercar.gov vin check and see what you get there. Here is a link.
