2005 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

Vue 6-cyl

Last Jan. 2004 my wife and I purchased a 2004 Saturn Vue AWD V6. From day one it was in the shop for repairs, drive train, front end etc.( we have a copy of all records) the last repair was a steering column replacement around June 04. In July 04 Saturn took this vehicle back and replaced it with a 04 Vue. This past October 05 it developed a rattle in the front end and Saturn replaced the steering column. After repair the rattle is still there and I had a local repair shop check the vehicle and once it was on the lift they were able to move the steering column with their hand. Saturn has said this vehicle and the last one are safe to drive but my concern is two Vue's and both having the steering column replaced and told there is no problem. I can't be the only person with this repair or problem and I feel Saturn is giving me the run around.

Last Jan. 2004 we purchased a 04 Saturn Vue, the vehicle ended up being in the shop for repairs such as suspension, drive train, wheel bearings etc. The last repair was the steering column and Saturn agreed to replace the M/V. in July 04 were received our new 04 Vue. On Saturday we brought it to the dealership for service and to check a rattle in the front end. We are new scheduled to have the steering column replace in this M/V. Saturn stated that the M/V is safe to drive but my concern is two (2) 04 Vue's with steering column replacements and Saturn not telling me if this is a major problem with these M/V's. what are the odds that this could only happen to us not once but twice.
