Default 2001 L200 Very Rough Idle - Update

Hi All,

Last week I posted that my '01 L200 was idling rough and the fan was racing.
I brought the car to the local dealer hoping it was the ignition/plugs recall, but they told me that they discovered the timing chain was loose and my valves had been bent. A $2,800 dollar repair!

After the intial shock wore off I called them back. Without my asking, they said they are willing to split the cost because of the low mileage on the car. (28,500miles - Out of Warranty on Time - No Extended Warranty)

It seems fair.... but why would they be so eager to split it? Could there be a defect in this product?

Any comments and ideas much appreciated.

Maybe get another opiion from another Saturn dealer if one is close by. I would agree that you ask someone like wolfman

Saturn will often split costs since you are so close to being in warranty as a courtesy.

They will also split the costs of repairs if your car had similar service done by THEM and the same problem re-occurs.
