My vehicle is a 2009 Aura 6cyl with 94,000 miles. I have just replace 4 Michelin MXM4 tires which were 80% worn, with 4 new of the same tires. I replaced the front rotors and pads 5,000 miles ago. The vehicle had No vibration prior to removing the old tires. After 100 yards with the new tires I returned the vehicle because it shook. All four tires have been removed, rebalanced, rotated, and some even remounted. A vibration still exists, although less than when first driven, appearing to be coming from the rear wheels. The dealer is preparing to replace all four with different but same MXM4 tires. From your experience do you feel this is worth the expense he will incur, or will it have little or no impact?

My cars radio will not turn on, the clock doesn't even show up or anything. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem or knows what to do. I believe its something electrical because the sound for my turn signals/four-ways, and seat belt isn't working either.

Good morning kmyles,
I'm sure you'll get some great feedback from the Edmunds community. Unfortunately, I don't have access to any resources to help you diagnose what's going on with your Aura at the moment. If you decide to visit your dealership, please let me know! We're available to work with you through that process and help in any way we can.

my radio, clock and all the bells/whistles stopped working . .then my car would not start . .then the electric door locks go up/down while i am driving my car . .then i start getting "warnings" (i.e. airbag issues, etc). my car has to be charged daily now just to start, and that is only lasting a few hours as my battery is being drained. my friend researched some blogs on the 2007 aura and found that the control module (the brain) is likely the culprit. i am going to reach out to a GM rep and find out what is going on, and since i have already heard how much $$$, i'm looking for some relief from GM, this is a joke

I have a 2007 Saturn Aura. We seem to have the same problem. About 6-7 months ago, my remote stopped working (to unlock), everything else worked fine (lock, trunk and horn). Today, I drove home from work fine, 30 minutes later I tried to start the car and it just clicked as if the battery was low. I used the jumper box and had no luck. I then used my other Saturn (1999 SL2) to try to jump start, again, no luck. I called road side assistance and the tow truck guy jumped it with no problem. He adviced to keep it running for 30-45 minutes to fully charge. I drove it around the neighborhood and then let it just idel for 30 more minutes as I watered the grass. I then turned it off and again, it didn't start. Just some more clicking and caution lights flashing on the dash. Don't know were Saturn went wrong. My first Saturn was a 1997 SL2 and I put 176,000 miles before selling it, then we picked up a 1999 SL2 which we still have with 146,000 miles and still running strong. I do have approximately 150,000 miles on my 2007 Aura but, I sure am hating this electrical problems.
I refuse to do the 5 times to the shop thing in which they change something everytime and before you know it I've spent $1,000.00 and the problem still there. I just want to know what is wrong and get it fixed.
#48 of 111 Electrical issues

So I have a 2007 Saturn Aura XE. I bought it used and loved it... for about a month. It has the craziest electrical issues, and I have no idea what could be causing all of them. For starters, the driver side heated seat button does not work. Secondly, half the buttons on the radio work maybe 15% of the time. Cruise control button sometimes will not work, or cruise control will turn off in the middle of using it. Check airbag light came on for a while then finally went away. Trunk button on door does not work (must use clicker). Window lock button does not work. My dad has replaced the battery at least once since we have had it. The running lights completely went out, but brake lights still worked (changed fuse, but blew it every time the vehicle started-mechanic was able to find a short and fix issue). But now my brake lights decide to do whatever they want (pretty much do opposite- come on when I accelerate and go off when I brake). Mechanic says the whole anti-lock braking system is out (over $1000 to fix unless they find a used part). There are other things, but those are the most common/annoying issues. My car literally is in the shop every few months for random issues. I am so ready to be done with this car, but waiting to graduate before I buy a new one. Has anybody experienced similar issues and found a resolution?
