Aura

Since new, we have had passenger air bag issues, ie: Not sensing an adult passenger. Brakes have been operating poorly, with rear pads wearing out, and front not. Four new master cylinders, pads & rotors with no improvement. Now mid 2018, strong gasoline smell from under rear of vehicle. I have seen where other Saturn, have a fuel leak relating to the fuel pump fuel lines. I suspect the same for our car. Doesn't matter how full the tank is, and of course it is parked. Should be a recall on this defect. We live in Texas where it is hot. We now have about 130,000miles on the car.

Takata recalls. The service ESC and traction off indicator light keep coming on. Several months ago, as I was driving home the dash board lights went off and came back on. Even the speed odometer acted up. Several months ago, the car would not reverse, it made a sound when I did backed back. Now, every time I put gas in my car, I have to keep pumping the gas peddle as I'm turning the key to start it up. The right front and side signal lights don't don't don't work

Aura

  • 32,450 miles
When parking after a drive of any length, strong gasoline odor from tank area. After research, found it is a common fuel pump problem that was in fact recalled on the Saturn ion of the same year model. To date no recalls or tsb's have been issued. I feel this is very dangerous and would like to have it fixed.

Had to replace a faulty fuel pump that cracked at the fuel line port and caused gasoline to leak from the fuel pump assembly and possibly cause a fire. Very similar to an open recall on 2007 Saturn ions, but there is currently no recall against the Aura fuel system...

Aura 6-cyl

  • 100 miles
I had my 2007 Aura for 1 week when driving a freeway, the car would not shift past 4th gear. I took it in for service and the technician found strange particles in the gears. He described it as small white plastic pieces. No explanation where they came from or what they were. He had never seen this before. The Aura, while not leaving me stranded has always has a "poltergeist", lights not functioning properly, engine lights coming on and off and no repairs needed, etc. I has always idled strangely, as if it might shut off at a stop and felt as if my RPM's increased but no speed during acceleration. Now, there is a problem with the fuel management system, which feels like a transmission issue (very hard jerking during shifting and down shifting),the car won't start after fueling. It has not been a vehicle of trust.
