NHTSA — Air Bags Problems

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2008 Aura’s issues with brakes, such as worn out rotors, isn’t as severe as the prior model year, but let’s just not start awarding them any brake awards just yet. Does that even exist? “The Brakies”?

One thing the 2008 does share with the 2007 is a recall of a busted gear shifter cable which can make it look like your car is in park, when the transmission is still engaged. You can only imagine what kind of fun that causes.

The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Aura. While driving less than 10 mph and attempting to make a right turn, the air bags deployed without impact. The seat belt locked around the contact's neck. Her neck was injured and she was transported to a physician due to the chemicals expelled from the air bags. The impact was forceful enough that the contact thought she had been shot. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they advised her not to drive the vehicle. The failure mileage was 10,495 and current mileage was 10,600.
