2007 AURA XR
Dizzy Aura issues / concerns?

Well it's my opinion that every new car that gets a forum section on this site should have a sticky under it where people list only issues they've had with their cars. (ie: no discussion / opinion)
This to inform anybody currently looking at one for what they may need to take closer looks at.

I am currently looking at a 2007 Aura XR w/ 11k on the dial and would like to know just these things w/o scanning through 50+ pages of threads.

i have an 07 aura xr. 12k miles. it was new 12/20/06. no problems except as some have i think it will need intermediate steering shaft. jerky steering when going slow. we just had 2 xr s 27k miles rental returns in burnsville we sold for 18999. i thought that was really cheap.

burnsville, mn? do u work at the saturn dealership there? i'm working w/ the one in bloomington, they've got an XR w/ 11k and are letting it go for $19999. seemed like a really good deal to me.

not sure if i'm going to go thru w/ it just yet, may end up waiting until they're clearing out the 08's as it seems some bugs got worked out.

yes i do. i used to work at bloomington many years ago. i like to buy new but the auras are really cheap priced right now. with employee price and incentives a new one would only be about 23000.

It would be hard to get a reliable list without discussion. A lot of times people talk about problems before they are resolved, and they often turn out to be something completely different (or nothing at all).

It would have to be basically a list of what was actually repaired and not what is suspected to be wrong.

I cannot come up with a list but I have seen statistical evidence from mkaresh's site that indicates below average reliability for the 2007 model. No offense meant - just an observation of factual data.

You just need a pic of the sunroof closed from the inside or the sunroof shade closed? I have no problem doing it for you when Im off work if no one beats me to it, but may I ask why?

hm. i only saw but a handful of reports on the aura on that site that would effectively impact "reliability".... maybe i'm reading stuff wrong. could you link to the data you were viewing?

Funny seeing you here. I like the aura and reliability has been pretty good, nothing more or less than other cars I have had. I must say I miss my redline like no other, that was a damn fun car to drive.

ah good page.

i wonder why the "repair histories" page doesn't correspond to that? sure would be nice to know exactly what things the aura's are being put in the shop for...
