The OP mentioned clicking and binding a few days before failure - some good clues there - I'll be parking mine until I hear more.
I posted this a long time ago (on this thread) but didn't see any action/reaction to it.... as you mentioned; this could be the most serious problem we Vue owners have to watch for. It happened to my wife and me and obviously others but it is nearly impossible to find info about.
As a respected Saturnfans.com member could you help get the warning out there?

I think most are gone, is this limited again to northern salt corrosion, & cold issues?

Report it.....
