Re: Farewell Saturn! It's been a great ride!

Haha I might! That would be good, and it would keep the miles off of my new Bimmer!

Re: How similar is the Aura XR to the Vectra VXR?

Essentially they are two completely separate cars. Even though they are both on the "Epsilon" platform, it's even modified from the Vectra.

When I was in Europe, I saw several, and it's easy to...

Re: Seriously Considering this Aura; Opinions?

3.6 is newer technology, MUCH more powerful. Less fuel economy. 6-spd automatic.

3.5 is more efficient, reliable, but less refined.

I was happy with my 3.5 for the four years I had my AURA.

Re: Seriously Considering this Aura; Opinions?

Looks okay to me. Actually I think it's a good price, as long as the car is in good shape. I love leather, but the cloth isn't bad.

I disagree about the comment with the 3.5. Having owned an XE...

Thumbs Up Farewell Saturn! It's been a great ride!

After six years, and a total of over 127,000 miles, I'm moving on from Saturn. It's been a great ride. I owned a 2004 Saturn Ion 3 (SE Sedan) followed by a 2007 Saturn AURA XE. I really enjoyed the...

Re: Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

I certainly intend to do so. I'm really excited about my BMW, but I've really enjoyed my SATURN(s), and I'm not getting rid of my various Saturn gifts and accessories.

I'm going to keep the...

Re: Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

Hello everyone, thanks for all of the comments.

I really do love the Regal.

However, I have decided to buy a CPO 2009 BMW 328i Xdrive. I was eligible for the BMW College Graduate Program, so I...

Re: Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

I agree that the Regal is a very nice car, and I really love it. My problem has been trying to locate a used Regal with a manual transmission. As mentioned above, I really want to drive manual again,...

Re: Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

Yes. First, my budget is $23-25k.

I really would like an LTZ, but it is not available with a manual tranny. So I'd have to get a 2LT with the RS package, I'd also like a sunroof and maybe even a...

Re: Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

Yes, I really like the Verano. It would be my first choice, but it's not available with a manual transmission. I would like to go back to driving manual after the AURA.

Thinking about replacing my AURA. Chevy Cruze?

Hey guys,

This is a rather depressing topic, but after four happy years and 90,000 comfortable miles (currently 98k,) I'm thinking about replacing my AURA. I've really loved the car, but now that...

Door freezes.... Open?

Hello everyone, haven't been around much these days. Not a lot of time for forums.

For the passed two winters or so, when the temperature gets around 10 degrees, my doors will "freeze open." Where...

Re: Is changing brake pads difficult?

Not too bad. I finally did my brakes by myself, with the assistance of my Dad. It wasn't too bad... Saved lots of cash.

Make sure you get the tool to crank the pistons back in. AutoZone rents them...

Haven't been around the forum much. Many changes in my life have left me with little time for computer stuff.

Re: Pontiac Solstice wheels on my Aura

Those wheels look really fly on your AURA. I upgraded to XR 18s on my Aura, especially after I had several 17' OEM steelies that were out-of-round. Unloaded my old rims, covers, and bald-ish tires...

Re: Very Frustrated With Wiper Blades

I also recently installed Rain-X Latitude. Not bad, but not as great as I was expecting. As I posted earlier, I have been using Trico neoform wipers, and these are similar quality IMO.

Re: Coolant leak

I had the same problem, and my reservoir tank was replaced under warranty.

However, my AURA still requires a bit of coolant every 4-5 months, even though it isn't leaking.

Re: Rod Knock in 2008 aura

That turnaround actually isn't so bad. Glad to hear it was covered under warranty. This is the first I've heard of that problem on this car.
