How many miles are on vehicle?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
170633 miles

I asked because vehicle has a extended warranty but it is only on vehicles with under 150k. These have electric power steering and the common problem is the electric motor. This is about a $600 repair to have done at a shop depending on where you go. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

I would like to know how to remove and replace. Since I can nit afford $600.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Thank You so much

You will need to get new motor/module reprogrammed at dealership which will cost about $100. Otherwise you can get a used motor/module off ebay for around $100. It is located on steering column inside vehicle, here are replacement instructions. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
