#104 of 111 Re: 2008 Steering sqeek [tigger1950]
Jul 11, 2013 (7:10 am)
I am having this same steering issue I see so many others having. I purchased my 2008 Aura certified preowned in 2010. I took it into the dealer shortly before the warranty expired with this steering rubbing noise issue. I believe they said they replaced the steering gear, and it worked perfectly for about exactly one year and now it is back exactly the same as it was before. Now my warranty has long since passed. I called the dealer to see if the repair itself has a warranty, and I never could get a straight answer on that. I can't really afford an expensive repair on this, so I am hesitant on taking into the dealer again. Just wondering with so many people apparently experiencing the same problem, was there ever a recall on this?
#105 of 111 Aura Hybrid 2007 Service Traction Light
Jul 16, 2013 (7:56 am)
Our Aura is a beautiful car, but has had nothing but problems!
The latest is the "Service Traction" warning light in the dash. The car lurches and clunks. This car does not drive smoothly at all. Bought it used last August for a young driver in the family (who is making the car payments, and not pleased with the car at all). We got another Saturn b/c my 2004 Vue has 230K with no problems and we've had an L series, two of the early S series cars, and generally buy GM.
I have a diagnostic appointment at a dealer in Nashua NH for 7/18. Is the car safe to drive? Will it just die in the road? is this a transmission problem? a hybrid problem? What are my recourses for a car with only 70k on it and LOTS of payments left? HELP please. ????

I am hoping that you can help me! I am very frustrated. Reading sooo many posts that are having the same issues that I am with my 2007 Saturn Aura. I have spent more than$2000 on recent issues, grinding, clunking signs to no avail. I am now being told it is gears in the steering column. Help!

#111 of 111 Saturn 2007 is Trash

This is general synopses of the 2007 Saturn Aura XE. I bought my car in the show room. If I had known that Saturn was discontinuing making this car, I WOULD HAVE NEVER BOUGHT IT! I have had 6 brand new cars and have never had problems with any of them for the first 5 years.
I had headlights to all go out at the same time and was told that it was regular maintenance at a tone of $584. GM customer service is a joke! I have had rotors put on my car for the second time in 2000 miles. I hear noises coming from the steering and wonder if the car will just fall apart.
Now my car will not lock into park. The shift just goes past neutral and reverse and will not lock. I am so sick of this car! It has blemished the SATURN name as being a very good car. Good luck everyone with our piece of junk!
