CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Saturn Aura was a mid-size car meant to replace the somewhat problematic L-Series. Unfortunately, the Aura brought its own problems: namely cheap brake parts that needed early replacement and a gear shifter that could say it’s in park while the transmission was still engaged.

Brake problems, including uneven wear and warped rotors that cause the car to wobble, are common complaints from 2007 owners. Did GM use metal for its rotors that can’t stand the heat? That’s what some say, and it’s hard to argue when reports show that rotors could start to warp as early as 500 miles off the dealer lot.

Meanwhile, a busted gear shifter cable lead to some unwanted rollaways. That’s because the shifter could say “Park” while the transmission was still in drive, reverse or neutral. A defect investigation into the issue was opened in 2011, eventually leading to a recall of 56,000 vehicles in 2014.

1st the day before. I brought the vehicle would not start, father in law jacked up and jump started the starter car started and moved forward as in drive. Jack fell and car fell on father in law under the car and continued to move forward while in park and ran over his body. I learned after incident GMC put a recall on the gear cable.just the day before the incident. I had car towed to fmc and they tell methis car has no recalls. It is all over the internet and published by the New York times on May 6, 2914. I am appalled this man could have lost his life in wal mart parking lot I am very thankful to the costwrmers which came running to help get this car off of the man under it.
