I've actually heard of this shortly after I bought the car. But I have not had any issues. If I did have an issue, I'd probably replace the cable myself. I have some hidden modules for my audio system down near that location.

2007 AURA XE
Default Re: Saturn Aura Investigated By NHTSA For Faulty Transmission Shift Cable

I just turned over 100k miles on my 07 Aura XE and I haven't had any issues....I heard of transmission issues with some and to keep an eye on mine as well but I feel like if my Aura in particular was going to have an issue it would have shown itself by now with the amount of driving I have done in the past three and a half years.

Got a letter about this today. GM is fixing this at no cost and will reimburse if already paid to get fixed.
