Of course it would be helpful to have more pertinent info but let's see what we can do working on assumptions.
Let's assume you had a drivability issue the first time based on the fact they "reprogrammed". Saturn currently has a replacement program for the VTi's, number 02-T-32. Can't find out why, I'm sure that's dealer info only. Just walking in and knowing about it might shake them up though.
Let's assume your current issue is noise only. Found a TSB that might cover your situation. Seems the CV axle spindle nuts are coming loose fairly often. That could cause your noise. They basically inspect, apply thread locking compound and retorque.
