Slightly Moody Transmission
This week it has had minuscule delays shifting up at the usual spots of 25 & 40 MPH and settling into the higher gear with a slight moment of harshness. Also, there were a couple of instances of mild abruptness when pushing the gas pedal right after slowing down from about 52 to the low 40's.
Not nearly as rough as you'd get on a Gen 1 Neon - just not as smooth as usual.
Also a couple of times on Wednesday, I didn't get the downshift I need and ended up accelarting by 19 miles very slowly with little torque. Again, somewhat similar to typical behaviour of 90's Chryslers, but untypical of Saturn.
Exept that I noticed both of these same things a few times last year when the heat and humidity was very high, just like the past few days.
Considering how rare and far apart these events were, could it be something related to the conditions, or do I have a larger problem to be concerned with?

Re: Slightly Moody Transmission
You might want to get your battery/charging system checked. Because the tranny shifting is controlled by the PCM, it's not uncommon for the for weird shifting to be the first sign of an impending battery or alternator failure.
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
