Transmission problems
By Karen Hickman on


2009 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Buyer Beware of transmission problems. The transmission "slipped" on my brand new 2009 Saturn Aura at 347 miles. I had to have it towed twice. The dealership returned it to me and assured me there was nothing wrong, despite the fact that I pulled out in front of traffic and could not accelerate. I was told to "...pull off to the side of the road, shut off the engine, then restart the car to 'reset' it." After this occurred the third time, I did as instructed, then drove it to the dealership, and left it there. I insisted it was dangerous, and I was now following the GA Lemon Law. They replaced the transmission at approximately 700 miles. I would rate my experience with Saturn a big 0.

Best Features

compliments on nice appearance "pretty"

Worst Features

Do not outsource parts such as the transmission, engine, ect... overseas for cheap labor. It shows!!!!
