I own a 2003 too and the same thing happened to me and if it is the same problem i had then your transmission is slipping.Take it to saturn to get it checked.The tranny is 6000.00.Just giving you a heads up.They are the most expensive on the market because it is a sealed tranny.Good luck i am not trying to scare you.

    You cant even get parts for them. Saturn is the only one you can deal with.

Vibrating noise at 2-3 rpm during acceleration after car warm up.


Is there a way you can Clarify your Question? There is a lot of words that are not meaning anything.. Is 2-3 RPM an accurate comment or are you meaning 2,000 - 3,000 RPM ?

If u have hub caps remove them and see if the noise goes away.. Sometimes the hub caps aren't tight enough to the rim and move a little causing the clicking.
