#54 of 111 2007 Saturn Engine Power
Jan 01, 2013 (3:52 pm)
My 2007 Saturn Aura suffers from loss of traction control which has happened from day one of purchase. It has never been bothersome however today I received an "Engine Power Reduced" while on the 401 (Major hwy) this was alarming however it still operated but this was followed up by a complete failure of the engine. I was able to move across to the shoulder however this was not done safely its a miracle I wasn't rear ended.
The car performed well previously I have had a few wheel bearing issues some were replaced under warranty and one wasn't however it should have been I wasn't aware that it was covered at the time under the power train warranty.
The car has 156000 km on it and is now out of warranty. Other issues I have been living with
- No light in the gas dashboard area
- No Air conditioning since year two (i lived in the north so it wasn't an issue, there was no dealership around)
- The radio has had periods of times lasting weeks where it wouldn't power on and then all of a sudden it came back and has been performing normally.
None of this caused too much issue with the exception of the engine ultimately disabling.

Good morning tylerkacsor,
Where are you writing in from (I see that you're using kilometers as your unit of measure)? If you like, I can get you information on how to contact customer service for your region.

#56 of 111 Radio and remote on Aura
Feb 13, 2013 (6:38 pm)
In regards to the points on the remote not working that happened to two of our remotes and it was due to two reasons, one is a missing solder spot (there are only a few of them). It is easy to fix. The other reason is some of the rubber faces on the remotes do not make good contact for some reason. This one even my mechanic could not fix. So one remote works now one does not.
I also have the problem of the buttons on the left of my radio do not work unless it is extremely cold out. It is very annoying because I cannot use the menu button at all. Is there a known solution to this? Do I need to replace the radio?

#58 of 111 Squeaking Suspension on 2007 Aura XE
Sep 27, 2008 (6:44 am)
Hello to all! I have had my Aura for a little over a year and have been very pleased with it. There is one nagging problem. When driving over uneven/lumpy/rough pavement at approximately 20 to 40 MPH, there is an intermittent squeak which sounds as though it is coming from the suspension. Dealer replaced front stabilizer bar bushings, and has rear bushings on order. Has anyone else had this problem?

i have a 07 EX V6. It has been my local dealership for 24 business days now. This is a squeak/light grind when turning at all speeds. So far they have replaced a coil inside the column and then several other componets from what i have been told. I talked to the service manager today. and he told me that cannot replace any more parts. they have tried it all. he can duplicate the noise now more than ever. there have been 2 saturn techs out and none of them can figure this out. has anyone had this problem or anything close to it? I have been in 2 different loaners now and neither one have the amenities that my car has. i am over all pleased with car with exception of the several trips back for misc. noises. can anyone help me with this. if there is a service rep that reads this, please give some feedback. this will be a lemon in 6 more business days. i wonder what GM will do in their present economic state if it make it that far
#60 of 111 Power steering noise
Mar 08, 2010 (4:43 am)
Hi, I just bought an 07 aura XE in the fall. During the cold months( -5C or colder) when I start it the power steering pump makes a whinning noise but goes away after 10-15 minutes once the car has warmed up. It doesn't do it in the warm months. Anybody out there with the same problem or is this a rare one. How did they fix it? It is a nice car though. I'd appreciate any info. Thanks
#61 of 111 07 Saturn Aura XR Grinding in Steering
Aug 08, 2010 (5:56 pm)
I have had my Saturn since 2007 and just love my car, but for a while now everytime I trun my wheel I feel and hear this grinding or clunking noise. Now Saturn isn't working on Saturns anymore. I was told to call GM and when I called GM they told me to call Pontiac for service repairs. I took my car in to get new tires (the Good Yeartires that were factory seperated on 2 of my tires) and the tire guy told me there was a silent recall on a part that would make that noise. Apparently they didn't grease it and it is just rubbing together when I turn the wheel. Problem is I can't figure out who to take my car to fix this issue and now it isn't under warranty anymore!

I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with your vehicle. You should take the vehicle back to the dealership that put the tires on your vehicle. Tell them what is going on and go from there. If you have any further questions please let me know. Thank you,

Thanks for the response. I bought my car at the Saturn dealership in Knoxville, TN and I live in Jacksonville, FL now so that isn't applicable. I called the Saturn dealership in town and they told me they aren't servicing Saturns anymore and I need to call GM. I called GM and they told me they weren't licensed to work on Saturns yet and to call Pontiac. So I am a bit flusttered! I am more concerned with the popping noise coming from my steering now and hoping that my other tires don't seperate on me anytime soon.
