We have a shutter on our '06 Vue 3.5 transmission as described in this forum. We changed the transmission fluid with the Honda variety about 30 days ago and it improved the shutter greatly, but it is returning. There are no more Saturn Dealers in the Orlando, Fl area. Where can we take our Vue to have this looked into? What about this recall: #10285 (February 2011) (for the transmission PCM re-program)? Also, what if it needs a torque converter? Is that covered? Car has 72000 miles.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Sounds like you may benefit from removing your current anti-virus program and trying a different one. I've had good luck with free editions of AVG and Avast, and am now using Microsoft Security essentials. Downloads.com has a long list of them.
Bad enough having to rent a vehicle without having to rent a computer too.

Go to saturn.com...there you will find a link to "Authorized saturn Service Providers" Follow the link and its as easy as entering your zip code...It will likely be a local Chevrolet dealership.

#158 of 430 Could this be a transmission problem?
Sep 27, 2011 (9:44 am)
I just recently bought a 2004 Saturn vue. I've noticed that when I accelerate slow, around 25 miles an hour there is a jerky feeling but if I accelerate quick it doesn't do that. Could it be the transmission? I've been told it could be the rear motor mount but its been checked and there is nothing wrong with the mounts. I don't want to put alot of money in it for trail and error. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Please define shutter, is it like surging or sort of jerky shifting (ie: much like someone learning to drive a manual)?

TY, I'll try this as I do have an antiquated OS, & on a dialup. A shame I can no longer just simply pick up a copy of XP discs off the shelf at a reasonable cost. Newer programs likely will not run on my OS.
Older & less intrusive software I find works better on this machine.

Tweety, what size engine?
I grit my teeth accelerating after making a turn to find what state the TC may be in, if it's going to surge, or jerk the vehicle. Saturn considered this normal.

No. More like lugging. Like it upshifted too soon and the engine was not running fast enough for the gear selected.

It's like somebody trying to learn to drive a manual.
