Re: Went the Buick route

I agree.

The VUE was a piece of crap, to be honest. I leased mine and the 2008 VUE seemed much better than the 2004, but still after 2 years it developed stupid little noises and rattles...

Re: Went the Buick route

Oh yeah.

I leased the VUE and got the incentive to get out of the lease early from GM in exchange for getting another GM car.

I am buying the Buick, though. We financed it.

Re: Went the Buick route

How exactly were you all burnt ?

I've been leasing my 2008 Saturn VUE XR for 3 years. When Saturn went out of business I was still able to get warranty service on it at a Chevy dealer.

Now, as...

Went the Buick route

As I pointed out earlier, I was trading my '08 VUE for a 2011 Buick Enclave.

It is an gorgeous machine, has every creature comfort one would want, and the quality of materials is amazing. I...

Trading my 2008 VUE XR for a 2011 Buick Enclave CXL-1

I've had 3 Saturns -- the 2001 SL1, 2004 VUE, and 2008 VUE and all served me well. But the time has come to move on.

I am taking advantage of the loyalty discount and getting us a 2011 Buick...

Re: 08 Vue Sunroof wired wrong?

Ok, you just gave me the reason to reject any dealer-installed option on any car I buy.

Re: One problem after the other : TCS/ESP lights both on

The point is this -- noone actually holds any of these parts in stock. I was told that something silly like the steering wheel position sensor is different on Saturn from what it is on the Equinox or...

Re: One problem after the other : TCS/ESP lights both on

This turned out to be a damaged steering wheel position sensor.

Here is the deal. I went to Difeo Chevrolet to get a broken windshield wiper switched fixed. They accidentally damaged both a trim...

Re: My Saturn relationship is over

My lease on the 08 VUE is up soon. I like the car but find it hard to get warranty service since noone seems to stock Saturn parts at any of the GM dealers around here.

I like the idea of the...

Re: Need help finding a competent service provider in NJ

Well, I raised enough stink with GM and Difeo and they offered to give me a rental tomorrow. That is fine by me, for now.

I sent a letter to GM expressing my disappointment about parts...

Re: Need help finding a competent service provider in NJ

Yes, but how do I know they do not all suck ?

I've always felt that American cars are great -- but GM dealerships and service centers are awful. Difeo in Jersey City is proving just that. Malouf...

Need help finding a competent service provider in NJ

I live in East Brunswick, NJ and work in Jersey City, NJ . I have Malouf near where I live, and Difeo near where I work.

I've been using Difeo but they are proving to be nothing but incompetent...

Re: One problem after the other : TCS/ESP lights both on

Indeed. The dealer had to order the part again (it is a Chevy dealer, they don't stock many of the Saturn parts), but he said it is an out of whack sensor.

Re: One problem after the other : TCS/ESP lights both on

Re: One problem after the other : TCS/ESP lights both on

Don't think it does.

To be fair, it did turn out that the car needed the alignment work done. The dealer happens to be out of the way for me and I can't keep going there. So I did alignment work...

So, my crooked steering wheel was an alignment issue. Fixed it.

Now on my way home both TCS and ESP lights came on at the same time. If I restart the car they come back on. Now I am going to let...

Steering wheel misaligned with wheels about 1/8the to the right

Took my VUE in for a wiper switch replacement. Got it back. Noticed that the steering wheel is about 1/8th of a turn to the right misaligned.

It doesn't seem to be a "wheel alignment" issue per...

Re: Funky windshield wiper behavior

Ok, so they fixed it. Required replacement of the wiper controller chip in the dashboard and the wiper motor. I have to go back in there because they put my steering wheel back on off-center.

Re: Funky windshield wiper behavior

Ok, the dealer (DiFeo Chevy in Jersey City) ordered the new motor and the new switch. Also, some @$$hole clipped my driver side mirror off while my car was parked, so they ordered that too.

Re: Wiper motor replacement.

Haha! I am in the same boat on lease payments. Got 10 more. Then GM would have to make me an offer I really can't refuse.

Re: Funky windshield wiper behavior

Guess I am going to ask them to look into it next time I service it. It is annoying but I can wait a week or two.

Funky windshield wiper behavior

So, something funky started happening on my 2008 VUE XR FWD.

The wipers turn on when I start the car (the switch is in the off position). In the intermittent/rain sensing mode they seems to be out...

Re: Washer fluid leak in a 2008 VUE

Sweet, thanks.

I called them and they said they would do warranty work on Saturns. The number for the service dept is different though -- 732-821-1177 .

As for me, I think somehow water got...
