I originally posted about the "rumble strip" feeling on my 07 Saturn Vue, and as I read all the great feedback and studying what others were going through, I diagnosed that my problem was the bearings, and I finally broke down, and took it to the shop, and low and behold it was the drivers side front bearings, and had it replaced. It cost about $470 to get it done, but it was worth it. I no longer have the high pitched noise at 30 - 50 mph, and it doesn't rumble anymore. Thank goodness. It was a tough pill to swallow, but hopefully I won't have anymore trouble with it. I am back in love with my Vue. I have a 2 year warranty on the job, and I hope I never hear that sound again. If I do, I know it will be the right side, and can get it fixed. My local Firestone was really good about getting the job done, and fixing the problem.

Nice work. Ill have to check mine. My rotor on that side keeps wearing even though I resurface and change pads. I get the same noise and some times I hear the grinding. Great feedback.
#89 of 136 Rattling noise when starting
Nov 01, 2010 (10:56 pm)
I have a 2008 Saturn VUE 4 cylinder. At about 30 some thousand miles it starting having a loud rattling noise only for a few seconds after starting the vehicle. Happens mostly when the car is cold but sometimes does it even when the car is warm. Any ideas or anyone else had problems like this.

This is a defect with the starter, the noise is actually due to a lubrication problem at the nose cone of the starter. We have a repair shop and this has become our worse nightmare. Every re-manufactured starter we put on makes the same noise, eventually. We have one coming in next week and we are going to try using a synthetic grease on the nose cone and see how long it lasts. A new starter from Saturn costs about $700.00 at our local dealership

I eventually gave up, and it is still making the noise. Always when the engine is cold,and sometimes after it has been run for a while. Your right, all 3 remans did the same thing. I will definitely try the grease on the cone. Thanks a lot
#92 of 136 2007 Saturn Vue AWD V6

Does anyone oout there have a 2007 Saturn Vue AWD that sounds like a rattle trap. It has to be the noisiest vehicle I have ever driven. I have taken it to my dealer/retailer and was told that "all of the AWD V6s are like that." It runs great, handles well and drives nicely but it is so freakin noisey. It sounds like the whole suspension is going to fall apart. I have had it checked out and was told everything is tight and nothing is wrong. Help! I may have to get rid of it.

Yours sound like the same issue I had this past summer. I don't have the AWD, but I had the same noise/shaking going on. It's an indicator that your wheel bearing are going out maybe. Mine was shaking bad on stopping, and then the noise, and found out from this forum and others that it was probably my wheel bearings (turned out to be drivers side front). I had it checked out, and that's what it was. Had them replaced at a cost of about $400, and haven't had any trouble since. No noise now. I am back in love with my '07 VUE, but hated it for a while. Hope that helps.
