2004 saturn vue: my vehicles..battery, tires and brakes..100k…

Customer Question
My 2004 saturn vue has...
My 2004 saturn vue has approx 95K miles. I am preparing for a long trip. I have never had to do anything but change the oil (I always use high end Mobile One in all my vehicles) change the battery, tires and brakes.

Q1) What service (per Saturn) should I do before trip as it will probably exceed the 100K mark?

Q2) A collision with a jackrabbit pushed the driver side "lower driving light" back into the bumper. Amazingly, the light is not broke but it appears that the bracket holding the light which is still barely attached at the bottom will break if I attempt to re-position the light. It also appears as if the bracket is part of the front bumper assembly as a whole. Please tell me I don't have to replace the entire bumper because of a broken driving lamp braket!!!!

sorry...should have specified....front wheel drive
Saturn Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
Okay. If you are going to be driving thisw much then you need to have the timing belt replaced also if that has not been done. If the timing belt is worn then it can break and cause this. If you are going to do this then you may want to also put the little extra money into it and change the spark plugs also. Other than this the usual fluid changes are the best thing to do.

I suspected that might be the answer....any idea of cost for timing belt...I have heard it is expensive?

Saturn Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
It is typically around $800.
