Re: Fair price for 2009 Vue RL?

It's with a wholesaler that picked it up at auction. Asking is 20.5k, I am thinking 15k.

If Saturn was still in business, it would be a smoking deal!

Fair price for 2009 Vue RL?

I found a 2009 RL FWD that is loaded up with nav, sunroof, pretty much every option imaginable. It only has 5k miles on it, but someone took the factory wheels off and replaced them with some tacky...

Re: Wheel Cover Curb Rash

Thanks for the link. I love the closeup picture of the "Alloys". They look pretty good!

Re: Wheel Cover Curb Rash

I was wondering about those too. I don't even care about the Saturn logo, let them look like aftermarket wheels!

Re: Hissing sound

My '08 does this, I can only hear it with the window down. I assumed it was normal -just the air being forced out of the strut when it is compressed going over a bump.

Re: Crooked Dashboards - Standard Feature on 2007 Saturn Aura?

My '08 looks the same way on both sides from the factory. I won't take it back because they will probably break 10 other things trying to get it lined up.

Re: Rented '09 XE in D.C.

It wasn't parked at the Comfort Inn in Gaithersburg was it?

Re: 2008 Aura- Starting Problems?

Sounds like your neutral safety switch is bad or out or adjustment. It is minor - have the dealer take a look at it and they should fix it under warranty. Make sure you describe it exactly as you did...

Re: Add keypad entry?

I can't figure out why Ford still installs these since the keyfob was invented. I guess it is good in the event you lock your key in the car. I remember these in the early 80's on old Ford LTDs when...

Re: My Aura XR is a lemon, need advice on compensation

Lemon laws vary by state, I know in PA it is only for 1 year.

Re: 2008 Aura XE 4 Cyl Mileage

Re: 2008 Aura XE 4 Cyl Mileage

I have rebuilt engines, I know how an internal combustion engine works. I understand how lowering back pressure will increase HP and MPG.

I do not believe that the slight amount you will increase...

Re: 2008 Aura XE 4 Cyl Mileage

Well, it is proven that ever used oil analysis that has been done on an engine with a K&N installed has had significantly elevated levels of dirt in the sample.

I would love to know how a K&N air...

I know I won't change your mind since this is obviously a product that you have bought into, believe in and have had good experience with. K&N is great with marketing,...

It sounds like a piece of debris such as a leaf or small twig got sucked in by the HVAC system and is making contact with the fan. You could probably have them drop the fan and clean it out, or wait...

Re: 2008 Aura XE 4 Cyl Mileage

Sorry but I disagree about the K&N, it has been proven that the air filter provides no difference in fuel economy in modern cars. The computer will adjust the air/fuel ratio to compensate for any...

It is a 6 speed transmission, so there will be a lot of shifting going on!

Re: Aura XE 3.5 - What is the normal operating temp?

Does it gradually work it's way up to 239 or does it have a tendency to jump from 220 or so up to 239 quickly?

Does it hit 239 while idling in traffic, cruising on the highway or while under load?

Re: Aura XE 3.5 - What is the normal operating temp?

I would like to plug in a scan tool and see what the actual engine temperature is. Dash gauges are very inaccurate, however mine always sits at 3/8 but I have a 4 banger.

Re: 2007 Aura XR won't start (sporadic problem, not a dead battery))

If it is a passlock problem, I would think the light of the car in a padlock would light up.

I had a keycut that is a non transponder key, and if I try to start the car with it all of the...
