Things to Watch For In Used 2008 Auras?
Hoping folks w/experience or knowledge of the Aura cars can help me out. I'm looking at a used 2008 Aura (2.4L 4 cylinder XE). It has low mileage (<50k); the maintenance schedule looks insanely simple/basic; the apparent condition is excellent.
Are there know problems w/the 2.4 L 4 cylinder or w/the Auras in general? Online reviews and ratings are high, but sometimes there's that ONE thing to watch out for that signals a lemon, or a car that is on the brink of going bad .
Any suggestions on what to watch for beyond the usual of rust damage, sketchy CarFax/AutoCheck histories, etc?
Thanks in advance!

Pretty safe bet, the 08 2.4 was matted to the 4 speed auto whereas the 09s have a 6 speed auto.
Things to look out for are bad lock actuators, INOP key fobs and make sure the radio and all four speakers work. Also check suspension components, sway bars, struts, etc. There is also an active recall for the shift lock/cable. Make sure that is addressed.
Other than that, they are solid. The Aura shares most mechanical and electrical bits with the Malibu.
