    Ok my wife's 93 Saturn was running relatively good, she complained that it
    would stall out occassionally.
    She had the car parked all day...came out of work and the engine would crank
    but not fire. Had the car towed to a Saturn Dealership...... Their vedict
    the fuse box had shorted and it cost over $800 to get the car back on the
    road... I think they pretty much took full advantage of the situation. At
    $90 an hour labor rate... it took them 2 hours + troubleshooting the problem
    and another 2 to replace the fuse box which was another $325. First I have
    never heard of a fuse box going bad, Second it took them 2 hours to trouble
    shoot a short circuit which according to them killed all power to the fuse
    box and third 2 hours to replace a box which has 4 bolts and a plug
    connector? These guys are rip offs to the nth degree.

    My Gawd! What a RIP OFF!
    Please contact the better business bureau and Saturn corporate! This
    is awful.
    I cannot believe the balls these jerks must have.
    A fuse box is simply a plastic box with a bunch of wires going into it.
    Inside it -
    the wiring harness from one side terminates with copper inserts which
    are flush with the panel surface, and the recieving connectors are the
    same which lead out the wiring harness on the opposite side. There are
    several relays which mount on the surface of the fuse panel, but
    there's just no justification for what these criminals have done to
    Please post the name, address and phone number of this dealership.
