I don't think your problem is rare. I have a 2006 V6 and I've taken it back to the dealer three times in the 19 months I've owned it to figure out what I call a "bobbling" noise in the front. They've replaced rotors, bushings, etc. It's fine for about 24 hours, then it's back. It becomes noticeable when you're just rolling, going over a bumpy road in a parking lot, street, at very low speed even.
Now I've become hyper-sensitive to the road noise under the car,too, especially on the highway. I have to turn the radio up really loud to counteract the noise. The tires are still new and the tire place said upgrading from the factory installed Bridgestones wouldn't improve the noisiness of the car. Any magic solutions to all my woes? I'm really not a whiner! I loved this car when I bought it. Thanks!

Umm... come drive my Geo Tracker Convertible for a week and when you get back into your VUE you will fall in love with it all over again. Road noise.. ha. (just kidding of course)

I recently had the cradle replaced on my 2004 vue, and now seem to have acquired a clattering noise from the front end. It is worse when starting off while turning or going over
bumpy roads... Any ideas??

My noise is only in the winter and I haven't heard of anyone having a cradle replaced.

Has anyone received a letter about API filing for Chapter 11.

I don't see anything in the news about them. You could try asking in the Extended Warranties discussion.

After visiting the dealer, it turns out my rattle is from the front left torsion arm. If anyone else is experiencing from end noise, check that.

We have had similar noises with our 05 vue, awd v6. A vibration that comes and goes at speeds around 25-45mph. We took it in 3 times and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Now we are out of warranty, 45k miles, and they say it is the torque converter. What kind of torque converter goes out at 45k? We have been going around and around with the dealership about who should pay for it. we finally got them to pay for the whole thing, labor and parts, we had to suffice them with a brake job and regular matinence job but it sure is better than what it would have been. Bottom line. Saturn knows there is a problem, we have read story after story about dealers not finding the problem then finding it after the warranty runs out. We are getting rid of our Saturn and never getting in one again.
#23 of 139 NOT HAPPY WITH OUR 2005 AWD-V6 VUE AND SERVICE AT SATURN LOCATION

WE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH OUR 2005 SATURN VUE V6 AWD.
WE BROUGHT THE CAR SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY FOR THE SAME PROBLEM, WE PAID $$ TO HAVE THE CAR SERVICED AT A SATURN LOCATION, ONLY TO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM COMING BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN.
THE CAR MAKES A LOUD NOISE WHEN IT'S MOVING ABOVE 25-40MPH.
NO NOISE WHEN THE ENGINE RUNS AND THE CAR IS NOT MOVING.
THE NOISE IS COMING FROM THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF THE CAR.
THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING AS WE PAID TOP $$ TO SATURN SERVICE CENTER AND THEY COULD NOT FIXED THE PROBLEM. THE CAR IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY FOR A FEW MORE MONTHS.
DO WE NEED TO TURN TO SATURN USERS GROUPS ON THE INTERNET TO ASK FOR ADVICE? OR IS THERE A BETTER WAY FOR ONE SATURN TECHNICIAN TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM WITH OUR 2005 VUE V6- AWD.
