2007 Saturn Aura XR 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I am the 2nd owner of this Aura XR. I brought it in Mar 2011 with 10,200 miles on it.
It's a beautiful looking, well-optioned car with good performance and handling.
I cannot wait to be rid of it because it has zero reliability.
Its been to 2 different dealers in the past 3 months for electrical/computer issues which can not be found.
They car will refuse to crank after short trips, then restart on its own after 10-15 minutes, usually accompanied by a random warning light (never the same one).
Both trips to the dealer were the result of all gauges malfunctioning, all warning lights & messages coming on, and all electrical systems (like traction control) shutting off while driving.
The car is well optioned, with great performance from the 3.6L V6 and 6spd auto. It handles well and delivers good fuel economy.
GM should really issue a recall based on all the forums I've read where other Aura owners have identical problems with their cars, which usually cannot be resolved.
