Dizzy 2008 Vue XR transmission problems

In January 2010 I bought a 2008 VUE XR, used, with 16,000 miles on it. LOVE this car, I am a gigantic fan of Saturn, it's my third one out of 4 vehicles owned.

In the past year I have had nothing but random glitches and problems with it. Just to name a few- battery needed replaced, new wipers, new tires, 2 new wheel bearings, gaskets, brakes, AND to top it off, I just had my transmission completely die late last year. It had to be replaced at only 60,000 miles and it cost $4000!!!! (Thank god I had an extended warranty on the vehicle because of course it happened a month after the regular warranty expired- literally)

Has anyone else had numerous problems with their VUE? Specifically needing the transmission replaced so early??

I saw an article online about a lawsuit over bad transmissions but that was for older Saturns- 2002-2005 (Ions and VUEs). I have an 08! I was floored when they told me the transmission had to be replaced already! I also never had these types of problems or nearly as many with my other 2 Saturns.

2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: 2008 Vue XR transmission problems

Ours had to be rebuilt at 72,000 miles. Just got in before the 5 year warranty expired.

My thread from that time.
