On a 600 mile trip, my in-laws' Saturn Vue, with the 2.2 4cyl and CVT AWD, was going well until about 50 miles from their destination. At that point the car lost forward momentum and we had to have it towed! I do not have any fault codes, and since then, the car has been parked, the battery is now dead.
Is this a known problem with the CVT? And can an oil change generally help with this?
Also I have read of others with accelerator pedal sensor issues. Could this be a potential problem also?
