I did a little research and the service guy at Saturn of Fairfax was actually incorrect about the odometer law. It just says that a notice has to be attached to the left side driver's door that the odometer reading does not reflect the actual mileage. In fact, several states specify that the new odometer has to be set to zero. (I could not find information about Virginia's law specifically in the 10 minutes or so I was willing to devote to this.)

Still, 500 bucks will probably cover most of my expenses for my trip to Cambodia in December. And, as someone else I know with a stuck Saturn odometer pointed out, there is always a risk of them breaking something else in the process of replacing it.
