Customer Question
Can a 2008 Saturn...

Can a 2008 Saturn Vue XR be towed with all four wheels on the ground?

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

The transmission has an unknown slippage problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your VUE yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm the mechanic looking into a customer that called with a problem with their Saturn transmission and wants to tow it to me behind their motorhome with all the wheels on the ground. They'

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

All I know is you can't tow an automatic trans vehicle with all four wheels on the ground unless it has a rear pump to lubricate the clutches or some way to disconnect the axle(s). Is this true with this Saturn?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.
