Default 2008 Saturn Vue Recalled for Faulty Door Handles

A new story entry has been added:

[drupal=3172]2008 Saturn Vue Recalled for Faulty Door Handles[/drupal]

Quote:
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that General Motors is recalling 44,451 model year 2008 Saturn Vue vehicles with body color outside door handles. The outside door handles may stick or bind. If this were to occur, the door may not latch when closed. Driving with an unlatched door could result in an unbelted occupant falling out of the vehicle, causing increased risk of injury.

I've had my handles stick once or twice, but didn't think much of it. I'm not a huge chrome fan...but I guess there is a reason that chrome handles will be the replacement.

Sure glad we bought a Loaded XR Vue. It's been a great SUV and I love the look of the chrome handles Chrome in genral is a timeless classic I think. Glad I don't have to bother having them changed out. We love our 08 XR

I too have the XR with AWD and feel the same way as you, I love the vehicle. I will be very sad if Saturn does not survive in Canada.

Too bad for those that sprung for the chrome ones to replace the originals.

I was thinking about that...the people that paid money to get Chrome replacements (especially recently) probably aren't too thrilled to hear this news.

I like the body colored handles. Do I have to get chrome ones?
