#1 of 138 Thumps in the wind
Jun 21, 2006 (2:51 pm)
I have a 2006 Saturn Vue and if drive with the sunroof open and the driver side window open I get periodic thumps or knocks from below the front seats or the dashboard (not really sure where it is coming from).
If I open additional windows or close the driver side window it goes away. I am sure it is an air flow issue.
Anyone else experience this?

It's an air flow issue. Go down the road with only the back windows open and the thumping will be unbearable! My 2005 does the same thing.
#5 of 138 Saturn Vue vibration problem
Apr 04, 2007 (5:22 pm)
Can anyone help me with this issue? I recently purchased a brand new 07 Vue. Within the first few days of driving it, I could feel an annoying vibration in the seat, when I was idling either in park or at a stop light in drive with foot on brake. The antenna rattles at a high frequency also. I don't notice it at all when driving. I took it in for service and they said I needed a new catalytic converter (only had the vehicle 2 weeks at this point). They replaced the c.c. and I could still feel the vibration. When I complained again, they told me now this in "normal" for a 4-cylinder....huh? I notice that the vehicle idles around 500rpm...if I give it a little gas when in park or stopped, the vibration stops. Is 500rpm a normal speed for idling?
#7 of 138 Rear Hatch Rattle
Mar 26, 2007 (5:47 pm)
Hello all. I have an '06 Vue that I've owned for about 9 months. I have noticed a rattle coming from my rear hatch when driving. I seems to be coming from inside of the hatch panel. To me, it sounds like it's metal against metal. It's been getting worse. I've scheduled an appointment with the dealer. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem?

I've had the same rattle on my '04 and it was annoying. They will find the retainer clip on the inside gate panel to be bad. You can tap on the panel while the gate is open and it will stop till you pull on the inside notch out to close the gate. I don't think they have enough clips on such a large panel. Good Luck
