Re: Finding a wiper bolt cover replacement

My Aura came with an extra in a packet in the glove box along with some other small parts. However, you can visit your local Chevrolet dealer and order the part. The part is common on the Aura,...

Re: Bra for an Aura?

You might think twice about using a bra on a vehicle being towed. The RV tends to kick up a lot of dust/sand/rocks which can easily get under the bra and ruin you paint quickly (as in one trip). ...

Re: Automatic Headlights not Working

Is it all your lights (head & tail lights), or just your Daytime Running Lights? I actually like the DRL feature on my Aura. From page 171 of the owner's manual:

Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)...

Re: How are you doing on parts?

I have had no problems. I am dealing with my local Chevrolet-Buick-Pontiac-GMC dealer now, and they have been doing a good job on service and parts. You would be amazed at the number of shared...

Re: Tires for 08 XE 17"

Re: 2007 Aura XR Key Fob

Best to get 2 fobs off e-Bay. You should be able to get 2 for $25 -30 or so. This is because you have to take them to a GM dealer to have them programmed. My dealer charges $50 to program 1 or 2...

Re: Front License plate removal?

That would get you stopped, a ticket and possible fine (warning 1st time, fine the next time) in Minnesota, Wisconsin or Illinois. It is also illegal to have a licence frame that covers any...

Re: Rear door power lock

Sorry guys, but that is NOT the correct schematic. That is the mechanical door component schematic and #6 is the latch assembly. You need the electrical door component schematic, and the part you...

Re: XM radio question

Re: 2011 Aura

Nothing like comparing a $35-40K Audi to a $18-25K Aura. You can almost buy 2 Aura's (when avail new) to the Audi.

Try comparing the 2010 Buick Lacross or 2011 Regal instead. And I for one...

Re: Oil reminder reset

Re: 07 Aura - brake lights stay on while driving...

It's push the pedal to brake, foot off the pedal to coast. (Sorry, I couldn't resist). Actually, this sounds like more of a ground problem than a connector problem. But try the dielectric grease...

Re: What new car is similar to your Aura?

For not much more than the cost of the Regal, I personally like the Buick Lacrosse. I am not a fan of the Nike Swoosh on the side of the new Regal. I am also not a fan of leather, and the 2011...

Re: Storage Tray Left of Steering Wheel

Mine won't stay closed, even after being replaced by the dealer twice. Quite a common problem on the Aura and early model Malibu's. The compartment is a single molded plastic unit that changes...

Re: 2011 Aura

Sorry, I still dislike the (overly obvious Toyota-Lexus inspired) reverse "swoosh" on the sides. Ruins the Regal's sidelines, in my opinion. Maybe Buick is getting a kickback from Nike...

Re: Did your map pockets come with rubber inserts?

My 2008 Aura XE does not have pads in the map pockets. I have also driven many Auras (XR-4's mainly) from our company fleet. The 2009 XR-4 I am driving now does not have the pads, and I cannot ever...

Re: Question about doorlocks

I doubt all (4) door actuators would fail simultaneously. I suspect it is a power or relay issue. Check your owners manual to find the correct relay. I agree that this is best left to a dealer if...

Re: Some pics of my 07 XR!

For that rear emblem over the trunk crease you might try very carefully heating up the plastic emblem (hair dryer) and then bending slowly over a sharp edge (like a 2 by 4). If you proceed with...

That's what I have in my Titanium interior Aura - the black floor mats with the Aura logo. They were a set of 4 (fronts and backs) for $80 at the dealer. The rear seat mats are way too small, but I...

Re: 2011 Aura

The Regal must be quite a bit heavier than the Aura, as the mpg suffers greatly - getting 2 to 4 mpg LESS in both the 4 and 6 cylinder models. Actually, the Regal with the 2.4L is rated the same as...
