2008 AURA XR
2008
Default Rough Riding

Good morning all,

I was wondering if anyone has experience this? I noticed some rattling noises from driving latley. Even on smooth roads, you can hear and feel it. I'm guessing it could be the shocks or maybe the bushings in the sway bar maybe dried out?

Any thoughts on this?
I have about 48k on the car.

Thanks

X

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

auras tend to clunk in the front end as they get older especially in cold weather. my wife just mentioned our 07 xr was clunking and she doesnt notice much so it would have to be pretty noticeable.

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: Rough Riding

My 08 Aura XE has a clunk sound in the front end. I put new brakes on a couple of months ago. When I did that I checked all the front in parts but couldn't find any thing loose. But I am by no means a mechanic. So, I don't know what it is.

I'm bringing in the Aura Monday to address the front end clatter and looseness. Right at 35K miles just before the BtB warranty expires.

Every Saturn I've owned has suffered from front end issues. ION, VUE and now the Aura. I wonder when GM will get their front end components together?
