Pontiac once had a problem with a 200 Metric auto transmission. Years after
the warranty expired on these cars, Pontiac was still fixing them under
warranty or reimbursing customer who took their cars to private shops for
repair. If it is true that Saturn has this problem, I would bet that they
will cover the repairs and reimburse owners for their expenses. They are not
a 'fly by night' organization and cannot afford a bad rep.
