You are in the Saturn VUE
What is this discussion about?
Saturn VUE, SUV

I bought my 2004 Saturn Vue Redline new. It has 72000 miles and I decided this year to do some maintenance. I tow it behind a class A motor home, so it has another 15000 rolling miles.
I wanted to correct the rattle in the front end. Had the struts and mounts done. Also had the front brakes and rotors changed. The car was so much quieter, for a short while.
The rattle on low speed bumps has returned just as bad as before. I have read 442dude's ideas and I believe it is the caliper pin bushings. I will return to the mechanic with that suggestion.
I also found a couple of plastic part of the wheel wells rattling, so put in some screws.
Any other suggestions? I am aware of the stabilizer bushings and the mechanic says everything is tight.

In 2010, I put out the alert on the Saturn VUE/SUV. Within weeks of
purchasing the then new vehicle, my husband started having issues with it.
It would jump out of gear or not lock, when parked in gear. The dealer
started pulling new parts out of the vehicle.
Twenty-one visits in 3 months time, and I convinced GM to take the SUV back or I would park it with a sign on the window listing our complaints.
Take your complaints to Washington and follow through with letting GM know. They would hate to see such a group of customers all complaining about one product.
Until one voice joins in a group and the noise becomes louder, no one is helped. Glad to see the vehicle "gone". Each time, I see one in a parking lot, I wonder about it!
