Default 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 fritz in March and took a month to replace (under warranty, thank God for extended warranties). Once installed, the smart boys at my Chevy dealer discovered it was the amp ! Guess what ? Three weeks for an amp ! Full disclosure from the service guy at the dealership ? Multi-week delays should be expected when you drive an "old" Saturn !

Guess what, GM is getting that "old" Saturn back. Being nice, I gave the Equinox a look but the price made no sense and the Chevy guys couldn't sell food to a starving man. Just pathetic. I now drive a fully loaded Hyundai Santa Fe Limited. Pretty good deal as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't handle as well as the Aura but offers other niceties.

I loved my Aura and I hope all of you folks enjoy yours for a long time. For me, it's au revoir and bonne chance (goodbye and good luck). Hope I meet some of you on the Hyundai forums. You've been a great help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

My dealer's body shop manager said Saturn parts are being warehoused in only two locations & it's taking a couple of weeks to get them.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Michel,

Sorry to hear you were having problems with your AURA and sorry to see another member leave. Such is the cycle of life, I suppose.

As you know, you'll always be welcomed here.

Good luck with you new car.
