Sounds like you disengaged your Overdrive "OD"

is this something i need to be worried about or have a transmission shop look at? Cant decide to purchase this suv or not, just not that fimilar with saturn. Are you talking about an OD switch that i need to turn on or off?

You may need it looked at if the OD switch is on and it does it

Fordnut is right, sounds like the overdrive band is burnt in the transmission, meaning you will be rebuilding the transmission. That's $3K. See if they will drop the price by $3K, which they won't, so you'll be walking looking for another. I'm glad you asked us first.
