Hey - Just because we're a little North of 60, doesn't mean we don't enjoy some decent muscle under the hood.

Re: Real World AURA MPG

Re: I Finally Understand!

Usually the warranty won't cover an alignment unless the car has under 12K on it. Wouldn't hurt to ask though - they might bend the rules for you.

Re: 07 Aura electrical issue, steering column, and engine heat??

Happy Re: Feeling thump in steering wheel.

Well - I've been driving the Aura through a bunch of stop and go traffic for the past few days, and, she's fixed. The second revision of the intermediate shaft did the trick.

Re: Do you have fun with you Aura?

Given the really good fuel economy of the 3.5 and its decent level of performance, I always wondered why they didn't equip it with a 6 speed automatic and keep it in the lineup.

Re: Do you have fun with you Aura?

I'm with Threxx. My 08 XE 3.5 is a great trip car. It gets good gas mileage and has decent power. It doesn't scream its guts out climbing the hills where
I live. However, when I want "zesty", I...

Re: 2009 Aura XR 2.4L is a Low Key, Nice Car

In reality, my 3.5 has never gotten highway mileage as low as its EPA rating. The worst I've ever gotten on a trip was 30.5, the best 34. My other car, an 06 Jaguar S-Type with the 300 HP 32 valve...

Re: Transmission Sealed?

I own an 08 XE 3.5 with the 4 speed automatic. There's what appears to be a fill plug on top of the tranny. Its hard to see because its hidden under the battery.
