Re: FS: 2007 Aura XR $1500 trans issue

There is a problem with the 3.6l oil fill tube to the timing chain. If 3k oil changes are not made to the car, the engine may be ready to die too. I don't know how you check it on the car though....

Re: Tire and wheel advice needed

I switched to 17" Enkie wheels with my first tire change. I run Pirelli tires and found them way better than the stock tires. There is a nice 90 degree turn on my way in work. With stock tires, it...

Re: "Exploding" back window

If it exploded from pressure in the car, you'd find glass shards dozens of feet away, if not more. The internal pressure it would take to do that, would cause significant outward projection of...

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

I finally got my car back this weekend. Total damage was 5200 for a motor w/32k on it and a 3yr warranty, new control arms, new stabilizer bar and new rear shocks. I think we should put a sticky at...

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

It's odd they don't mention the Aura in that recall. Did they use the 3.6 in the Vectra? Was the 3.6 in the Opel designed different? I have a very early Aura. It was one of the first 3 Aura's the...

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

mis-wrote belt/chain. They did not tell me exactly what it was that caused it as they had not gotten inside it yet. I train the software for plant floor systems and I have little mechanical...

Re: Passenger door wont open

Both driver and passenger side on mine are showing signs of problems. My wife's Vue had to have hers repaired for a similar problem and it was fairly expensive.

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

I was a fool for not searching for known problems on the 3.6. I don't think I have read anything here about the timing belt oil issue and how much lower our oil change mileage should be. I will be...

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

I have been bad about scheduled maintenance beyond oil changes and winterization for the coolant system. I have had tuneups on schedule too.

Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

I changed oil between 5 and 6k using the recommended synthetic mix. I do occasionally check, but not like I did on my cars in the 70's and 80's. For the most part, the oil just got dirtier, not...

Dizzy Re: 2007 XR serious engine issues

The engine is blown.

I guess there is an issue with the 3.6l engine and oil getting to the timing belt. They highly recommend a 3k oil change schedule on them to greatly reduce that problem.
5k...

2007 XR serious engine issues

I have just over 108k on the car. It sounds like a diesel engine. My guess is I've blown the valves or something to that effect. I'll know more tomorrow. I'm hoping it is not a compression issue...

Re: Aura Buying Questions

If I drive easy on the highway, (60-65 w/cruse) I can get 29. I drive way too fast though so I get closer to 20-20. Local I can get 22-24 if I don't take advantage of the push the car has. If I push...

Re: Aura Buying Questions

I've heard they can have electrical problems on all Aura's. My car gets water in the door if I go through a bad puddle. I guess the leak tube from the sunroof to the outlet in the door is too short...

Suspension same on 07 as later models?

Is the suspension the same on the XR for 07 as it is beyond that?

My old suspension sounded like air shocks as I would here the woosh as I went over bumps. I replaced it with what they said was...

Re: Who has the highest mileage on saturn aura?

I'm just under 104,00 on my 07 XR. I have heard about the electrical problems. I think it is related to water leaks. Since it was new, in heavy rain or if I went through a bad puddle, I would get...

Re: Need Help! Aura XR Transmission failed

My dealer told me they send the case back to the plant and they install all new innards in it which is why we get the 100k warranty again. I have no idea if the plant has a trans line for rebuilds or...

Re: What percentage of 3-5-R wave plates fail on Aura XRs with 6t70 transmission?

I had to replace my trans at just under 100k miles. It was just under 4k for a rebuilt trans with a 100k warranty on it. I hope to put 200k on it, so it was a worthwhile investment. My next...

Re: Check out my aura and let me no what you think

Carbon wrap? Does that mean it is just a cover on the existing hood? Either way, what is the weight difference and is it noticeable? I like the way the wheels look but they would be rough on the...

Re: Quick tire question for 2009 Aura XR

They're hard to get your hands on now but the Pirelli Allroad that were stock on the Audi Quattro are road glue on wet and dry pavement. The only negative is they are a bit hard so it takes a little...

Re: The Astra vs Other Cars

The smaller motor was the main thing that pushed me into the Aura instead. I love the look of the Astra, but I really love my 3.6. And I wholeheartedly agree with people who talk about the European...

Re: 2008 Aura XE mods and body work help

Have you considered selling yours and getting one with the V6? If yours is in good shape it may save money in the long run if you want to buy more power. The 3.6 is very quick.

Re: Aura rust and paint job question

Thanks I'm just worried that since I am so close to 100k and over 6 years that it will be tough to get anyone to do anything.

Re: Face lift ?

I've thought about putting a very dark tint material over the top of my headlights. I have a black XR so it would blend in like it was painted. I really like the way it looks on your car and it's...
