Review

All highway miles. Car handles perfectly. 24-26mpg highway. Interior is in excellent condition. Has a lot of power under the hood when you want to pass. No doubt about it.

Review

Excellent car very satisfied with this! I bought this car in 2011 havent any problems other than regular maintenance. Replaced replaced breaks & rotors 2 times on front on once in the rear, gone through 2 sets of tires and almost due for another. Had to put a new gasket on the oil filter housing which was a $10 part and was able to install myself within half hour, did that a year ago. Just put a new water pump 2 months ago cost $350 for parts and labor. Live in the Midwest and have not had any rusting what so ever just because I detail the car myself regularly. Stereo sounds great especially for being a base model had to replace 2 door speakers cost about $50 with s&h off amazon. I installed a new stereo system and touchscreen unit car don't vibrate on outside near as much as others. No electrical issues what so ever. Car has good power & has amazing passing power especially on highways and extremely good handling and agility which is suprising for being such a cheap car and again being that i have the base model motor & tranny are as solid as the day I got it. I'm abusing the tranny have never had a trans flush or anything but so far still solid. Cloth seats stain easy but come clean just as easy. Love the car was thinking about selling and looking for something else but has a bad resale value and been looking for awhile and cant seem to find something as good for the money my car is valued at. Might keep and see how many miles I can put on it!

Review

I bought a 2007 Saturn Aura used with just under 80k miles. Having owned a 1999 Saturn SL2 for 8 years and having good luck with it, i decided to try again. Big mistake. 2 weeks into ownership, the power steering fluid was leaking. The whole steering rack had to be replaced. Luckily, the dealer i bought it from did it for free. 2 months into ownership, i thought i had a bad wheel bearing. Turns out it was the output shaft bearing to the Transmission, which meant a whole new transmission. Luckily i bought a 2 year warranty on it. During the transmission repair, i was informed that the engine's rear seal was leaking. This is only the beginning, and i pray it does not continue.


Best Features

The Aura is a great looking car, very similar to the Chevy Malibu, but better looking in my opinion. It has power and is not absolutely terrible on gas. The interior is comfortable, and it is enjoyable to drive. Unfortunately, looks only go so far, as the car is not reliable mechanically.


Worst Features

GM needs to build cars that last if they want to compete with Toyota or Subaru. After 80,000 miles my transmission failed. Something is wrong with that picture. I can understand things happening to a car that is 7 years old, but a transmission is no simple inexpensive repair. It is safe to say i am done with GM.
