I need some help. I purchased a Saturn 2008 Aura last year and my door locks would go up and down while driving every other day then became soo often it would do it every 2 seconds even with the car off.. But when I take it to the shop Traction light would come on and off. Now its been about 4 months that I can start my car up first thing and drive around but when i shut it off i takes 2 hours to 3 hours before i start it again, It has brand new starter i replaced it 4 times thinking it was always bad bought 3 batteries and new O2 sensors all 4 of them and spark plugs. nothing seems to help when i go to mechanic it always works fine. talked to GM and been there 3 times and they act like i am crazy. Even shot a video on my cell phone showing them the problem and they have no clue. I am not the onlyu one who is having this issue and can afford any more money for a mechanic. Any one have any help i am a 29 yr old single dad who need car help.
I had the door lock problem. If you replace the power lock switches the problem is solved. In addition, I had the the original problem in this thread of the rough running and the traction control light coming on. It is a bad fuel injector. Replaced the fuel injectors and the car is now purring like a kitten.
All these post I have read have me so scared. I bought my Saturn Aura in 08 brand new off the lot. Within 2 weeks I had the brakes replaced. Not to mention tons of tires. Also my electrical system started having problems with the radio and so on. Then next came my transmission just gave out and left me and my 3 kids stranded so I had that replaced. Then My breaks went out again!!! WTH.. Here I am still trying to pay it off, and I have sunk over 4000 into it in the last 3 months to different vast variety of things. Now I just bought 2 more new tires and had them put on at GMC and now I seen a new problem. I had the low traction and then the traction service esc light come on and it felt like it was dragging almost and losing power but then stopped. Also I had a brand new battery put in a few months back...cables and connection are fine according to GMC but yet sometimes my car just won't start. I have been disappointed from the beginning. Here I am about to make an hour trip with the family and I am terrified to drive it. The worst car I have ever bought. Also only place to service it is GMC but it seems like everytime they fix something within a week I am back in there. Stressed
I currently own a 2007 Saturn Aura XE, I bought it brand new off the lot. I have had very few problems, just normal maintenance of brakes, tires and two new batteries since the purchase, until recently. In November I took the car to the dealership, with 85,000 miles, because there was a strange noise from the front wheel wells'. I was told that the tie-rod was nearly broken in half and needed to be replaced. That was all fine, had the tie-rod replaced and it ran great. The next time I had my oil changed the dealership told me I should have my fuel system flushed and that it would give me better performance and better gas mileage. I agreed to have the system flushed and one week letter the check engine light came on. I took the car back to the dealership and they told me that one of the two catalytic converters needed to be replaced. My car never lost power, never died, did not even sound different. I took the car to an independent mechanic and was told the same thing, that the catalytic converter needed to be replaced. I had the catalytic converter replaced and 3 days later the check engine light came back on. Took the car to a different dealership and it has now been there for nearly 5 weeks. They keep trying different things and nothing seems to work. They have had the manifold off, all 6 fuel injectors have now been replaced, and now they are trying other things. Anyone know what the issue might be? Data from the car's computer was even sent to GM headquarters in Detroit and they are the one's who recommended the fuel injectors be replaced.
My husband's2008 Aura is having most of the same issues listed here. Has anyone solved the electrical issues that are definitely not caused by he battery or alternator? Did anyone ever have this resolved with GM? Did anyone try the recommendation from "bigrin" from dec. 2013 and have it work for them?
