Saturn actually issued a statement/recall on the timing chain issue. Not sure if the offer is still valid, but they would reimbursing for work that needed to be done as a result of the timing chain issue. We found this out AFTER our timing chain went out.
When we took it to the mechanic and he told us it was a timing chain failure. He looked in the engine to see how much damage was caused and determined that we needed a new engine.
You may have gotten lucky and only had minor damage and maybe they can re-build it, but that can also be costly. Let your mechanic take a look.
