#236 of 240 2007 Aura poor gas mileage
Jan 03, 2010 (11:37 pm)
For 2 and 1/2 years my Aura got great gas mileage. Then in about April of 2009 it went to hell. There are time when I get as low as 11 mpg in town and 18 to 20 on the highway. The dealer did 2 test drives and said they got 29 mpg highway.
I occasionally get good results also but generally bad.
Also getting some surging in power. Sudden bursts of speed and then poor power. RPM fluctuating.
Anyone having this problem?? I am getting the run around from the dealer and corporate.
#237 of 240 2007 Aura XR is a piece of crap and GM doesn't care.

I have had my 2007 Saturn Aura XR for over 3 years now, and it is complete junk. It is the worst built car I have ever owned. I have had the steering rack fail (I couldn't turn left), left rear brake caliper was manufactured incorrectly allowing all of the brake fluid to leak out (that was one scary panic stop), transmission was manufactured incorrectly (reverse randomly engaged, 3rd, 5th, and 6th gears would not fully engage. Reverse issue nearly killed a pedestrian, top gear issues kept gas mileage in the mid to high teens on the highway, dealers took over 1 year to admit to problem, when I presented video evidence), The catalytic converters became clogged at 47,000 miles and had to be replaced, the radio stopped working (a wire somehow shredded behind the dash).
I can't get rid of this garbage. When I called GM to ask about repurchasing the car or giving some kind of renumeration, I was told I should have purchased an extended warranty. So, I infer, and I you should as well: GM builds horrible cars, so you better buy the extended warranty, or else you will need to pay for the repairs and the rental car that your neighbors think you own.
#239 of 240 Love my Saturn Aura

I have had my 2008 Saturn Aura for 3 years now and I love it. There are a couple of minor interior things that are much to be desired though. The buttons on the steering wheel-the black material is starting to come off on the buttons that I use the most. Also on the driver side door, the black material is starting to peel off where you rest your arm. Is anyone else having this issue? Is this something that would have been covered under warranty?

These items should be covered if you have less than 3 yrs and 36,000
miles on your odometer. I have a 2007 Aura XR and my car is not showing this type of wear as yet . Try protecting those areas with a product such
as Macguires Interior Protectant for all surfaces . It may save you from
