Default Re: Engine Block Heater Scam

I worked for a dealership in west Tennessee, so we never ordered anything with the block heater, but something sounds fishy here.

According to the Saturn price lists published on 12/19/07 (which I just pulled to double check) the engine block heater is $75. It says no where on the price list that it requires anything extra, which it would if it did.

This sounds like an "oops" at the factory, someone forgot the cord and the dealership may have never seen one with a block heater - I honestly can't say I've ever heard of anyone ordering this option, so this is feasible.

I'd highly recommend calling the Saturn Customer Assistance Center for more insight. They have direct links to corporate and can help you get to the bottom of this. Even dealerships use this resource if they've got a question they can't answer. The number is 1-800-553-6000.
