I have the infamous 2004 Saturn Vue and I have loved it so far. My car has been a very good car. When it had the transmission problem back in 2010, I switched it to a manual to try to avoid getting another "bad" transmission. I had no idea that the problems that I was having with the car still had to do with the transmission problem, and now I'm pretty sure that there's no way for me to get any kind of warranty/settlement fix done on it. It is back in the shop right now for an unrelated problem, but I do experience the "engine power" problem along with stuttering when either at low speeds or when idling. I was told that it could be the exhaust manifold along with the O2 sensors which didn't make sense to me. (I have car experience). My solution for the whole issue is to drive my baby to her dying breath and pray that I can afford a new car when she finally goes. I have poured thousands of dollars into getting my car fixed and I think that this will be the last GM product that I ever buy. Which is a shame since I work for GM in skilled trades (experimental auto) and am a 6th generation GM child. If GM won't stand behind their product for even an employee, it is obvious that they don't care about standing behind their products at all. I simply can't spend my money with a company that doesn't care.
We also have a 2008 Saturn Vue with 76K. It is in the shop now after the transmission started slipping. The powertrain warranty expired in Aug and we have already spent $1200.00 on an issue with the heater. We will never buy a GM product again. That being said, the dealer is working us and we will only pay 60% of the cost to rebuild the transmission, not sure what the cost will be exactly but the service manager quoted around $900.00. We feel strongly that this is a known issuse and GM is refusing to admit fault. We plan on trading it in within the year.
I bought my moms 2003 Saturn Vue a few months ago. While driving with my toddler the transmission goes out. The mechanic said its not worth repairing because he can't offer me a warranty because GM doesn't offer one and the cost to repair it is around $4,000 - $5,000. GM replaced the transmission for my mom a couple years ago. Shouldn't a transmission last longer than 2 years? HELP!!! What's the first step I need to take in order to get this repaired?
I have a 2006 Saturn FWD V6, and the torque converter is malfuntioning. Can this be fixed with a reflash or am I looking into a repalcement?
i rebuilt a cvt trans in my daughters vue,did a little machining in the problem area,upgraded the piston o-ring and it's going strong 50,000 kms so far....
My daughter has a 2004 Saturn Vue with 138000 miles on it. She took it in because when driving on the freeway it starts to vibrate/shake/shudder at about 45 or 50 and keeps it up even at 70 mph. She thought it was tires or alignment but when she took it to a local repair shop, the tech said she needs a $6000 to $8000 transmission! I've read the threads and it seems like the transmission issues the shuddering went away at 50 mph. Anybody have a suggestion? She's moving from San Antonio, TX to Michigan in 2 weeks and I don't want her to drive it home if it's going to die on the expressway in the middle of the night. Help.
