Re: 2007 aura XR A Piler

Iíve had the same issue with my passenger side pillar. I thing the pillar piece can be pried off and the cloth pulled taught. Just a guess, though.

Re: Advice for New Muffler

Thanks for your replies. It turns out 2 bolts for the exhaust manifold were rusted through and fell under the car where I found them laying on the carport concrete. I had the car towed to the dealer...

Hello all, started my AURA up for the first time in a week and it sounds as though the muffler is shot - louder than hell, too! Any suggestions which shop may be better Midas, NTB, or any other...

Re: Replacing Passenger Side Tail Light Assembly

I just checked the light and it's going to need new nuts as the original ones are just a hair too large. It also looks as though some metal housing needs to be removed in order to access the light....

Re: Aura remote start?

Which AURA do you have? There were 4 different trims available for 2008. In addition, there were several option packages available. On the XR, I'm almost 1000% certain that they all came with remote...

Re: Comparable Replacement for "09 XR"

Perhaps even the 2017 / 2018 Chevy Impala? Darned nice car and FWD for those dicey snow days. Available in 2.5L or 3.6L. Not only does Consumer Reports like it, it's on their list of "Recommended"...

Re: Comparable Replacement for "09 XR"

I would say the Buick Regal. As you probably know, prior to Saturn being shuttered in 2010, it was slated to be the 2nd Gen. Saturn AURA. It's a good car and with the Buick Regal TourX sport wagon on...

Re: Stereo switching between radio & aux play

Mine too. I discontinued XM a couple of weeks ago as my AURA has been relegated to pretty much weekend driving duties. Now, when I have an FM station tuned, it keeps jumping back to "aux" and I keep...

Re: 09 Aura 4-cyl power steering issues

I've also encountered a problem with my power steering suddenly not working.

Re: Power Steering and Brake Issue

Thanks for your input. I haven't been inclined to drive it since bringing it home from the dealer, as driving the new Equinox is far more rewarding. However, I'll have to make a few evening grocery...

Re: Power Steering and Brake Issue

Re: Power Steering and Brake Issue

Could the power steering pump have gone bad, since this is also negatively impacting my power braking ability? As mentioned there is no indication of a leak on the ground beneath the car.

Re: Should I get my Aura fixed or look for a new car?

Don't feel bad, OP. I can relate on every level.

I've only got ~50k miles on my XR and have sunk ~$2,400 into her over the past 8 months (albeit half of that was for dealership labor). New turn...

Re: Thinking of Buying - Have Questions

The AURA is a terrific(!) vehicle. I own a 2008 XR which is fully loaded with all options available at the time. I've had very, very few problems with her, thus far.

Bluetooth on the 2009's, IIRC,...

Re: Reliablity opinions on the 2008 Aura XR

I'm the original owner of a 2008 Aura XR (2007 and 2008 MY XRs only came as 3.6L. The 3.5L was an XE along with the 2.4L XE).

Overall, it's been a very good car (and this is my first GM vehicle in...
