Default Any Aura Issues?

Hello

I'm thinking about trading in my 2003 L200 for an Aura. Has anyone had any issues with the Aura? Being a first production year car, I am a bit hesitant due to my bad experience with the ION we bought in it's first production year.

Any advice or input is appreciated.

Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Haven't had any problems whatsoever. I have an XE, leather, sunroof, and XM. Have you gone into the dealer and looked yet? What color/packages are you interested in?

I traded my L car for an Aura last October and have been loving it every day since. It is a much better car than the L.

2007 AURA XR
Default Re: Any Aura Issues?

The only negetive things i can think off are that the car has a small turning radius, meaning its harder to make u-turns and the trunk could be bigger up and down

My point is this, how would a smaller turning radius make a U-turn wider?? A larger turning radius would make for a wider U-turn, and a smaller one would make a U-turn smaller. Perhaps he meant to say larger instead of smaller.

Check out my post at bottom of this page:
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96539

Notice that all of my gripes are basically little things...I'd still give the AURA an 8 out of 10 in terms of my satisfaction with it...keep in mind, the basic engineering in the AURA has been around for a while in the Chevy Malibu and Pontiac G6...the transmission is new in the XR though, a joint GM/Ford design.
