GM to Pay Motorists $90 Million for Defective Transmissions

This is a settlement for the Automotive lawsuit.

Tens of thousands of motorists across the US could receive reimbursement of expenses connected with defective transmissions in more than 90,000 Saturn economy cars. General Motors has agreed to pay an estimated $90 million, if approved, to settle the class action.

The suit, filed nearly a year ago, alleges that the transmissions are "exceptionally prone to premature failure."

Hi All,

I have a 2002 Saturn SC1 (3 door coupe). It only has 87K miles on it and the transmission if failing. It is in the shop now and I am looking at least $2000.00 for repairs. Was this make/model involved in any law suits?
