Au revoir et bonne chance from Gatineau

Well folks, my lease is up. I had convinced myself to buy-out my 07 Aura XE around Xmas but GM managed to change my mind. My cruise failed in January and took 3 visits to fix. My radio went on the...

Same story here. 4th time in the shop over three years in my case. I got the dialectic grease treatment first, then the brake switch, then the cruise switch and I am now waiting for the cable and...

Re: AURA buyers...any regrets?

08 Malibu LT. Better designed inside, slightly better fit and finish than my Aura, but feels mushier on the road. More like my dad's GM:D. Softer suspension ? Must admit leather seats in mine +...

Re: AURA buyers...any regrets?

I own an 07 XE (Midnight Blue) and, sure, I have a few regrets. The paint chips fairly easily, the dashboard is slightly misaligned, a bit of a rust problem on the trunk lid, you have to take the car...

Re: Brake upgrades.

I had Wagner rotors and ThermoQuiet pads installed all around. 600CAN. Cheaper than the Delco stuff that had only lasted 45000 kilometers.

Re: Poor radio Reception?

The dealer replaced the whole head unit on my 07 XE. That fixed it. Also, better sound and more bass !

Re: What to tell dealer about a radio program

What year and model ? Do you have the thick shark fin aerial or or the thin (little black stick) aerial ? I have an 07 XE with the second and the US8 radio and neither the dealer, a specialized GM...

Re: iSimple PXAMG + PGHGM2 integration harness - ipod adapter

Never worked on my 07 XE. Your car must have the XM hardware pre-installed, not just the button or the potential for XM. Almost fried the onboard computer as well (nice lightshow however, as the...

Re: Lower Center Console Lost Power

I have had this quirk on my 07 XE from the start. I will only do it when it is cold outside (below freezing). Start it once, no leds on the temperature controls, start is again, all the leds are back...

Re: stuck in snow.

Mine are Toyo Garit KX. Good, quiet, expensive (all they had for my car 2 winters ago).

BTW, what do you folks think of the regular traction control (not Stabilitrak, I have a 07 XE) and how do...

Re: Parking brake problems

The parking brake on my old 03 Ford Focus used to go "sproing!" everytime I set them :D They used to fix it under warranty at about every second oil change ;) I wonder if the technology or materials...

Re: First service at GM dealer

It's Demers in Gatineau. Ultimately, they got the creaking seat right on the second attempt and caught a leaking windshield washer reservoir (falls apart after 45K ? How does that happen ?). Still,...

Mad Re: First service at GM dealer

I was optimistic for a while but I just got the stereotypical treatment from my (new) Chev dealer. Tried to charge me for warranty work (steering shaft clunk), tried to screw me on the brakes (see...

Re: I Finally Got My Letter Too!

Re: Its Official: Saturn to Cease Operations in Canada

Read the same here and on other forums. Then again, I also read that GM in the U.S. was willing to take an offer if it was well documented (i.e. same car, similarly equipped, in the same area. I'll...

Re: Just curious ???

Bought an 07 XE (loaded) instead of a Camry or an Altima. No real regrets, except for Saturn dying on me and being sent to a semi-crappy Chev dealer. Other small regrets would include the absence of...

Re: Cracked windscreen

1. I was quoted 895$ CAN by two independents and 595$ by my Chev dealer. I'm going with the dealer. It's a lease so I do not want any arguments at the end. I'm also 100% assured I'm getting the...

Re: Its Official: Saturn to Cease Operations in Canada

You probably mean GM will service Saturns as long as they have a legal obligation to do so and could face a class-action suit. :| Once the warranty and leases on 2009s expire (2014?), you can...
