Re: 2007 Aura electrical problems or security problems?

From what you've written it sounds like you are going to have to deconstruct the home made wiring job first, then see what the PO did not fix correctly-It would not surprise me if the BCM, or the...

Re: 08 Aura XR strut & tower brace recommendations

I just installed one of these from Megan Racing, it was $85 delivered and bolted right up to my 2007 Aura XR-hood closes perfectly, and it is a nice looking bar. It is listed as being for a G6 but...

Re: Battery replaced- now the dashboard lights up like a Christmas tree!

thats kind of what I go through every time I disconnect the battery on my 2007 XR-I end up having to mess with the connection at the battery, the grounds on the radiator support, and then the...

Re: I smell gas inside and out

You should really get that checked out, it sounds like a leaking fuel injector (hard starting) or possibly a fuel leak at the rail or a flexible line somewhere from the tank to the engine-no matter...

Re: Saturn Aura reliability? And $2K to replace the y-pipe?
