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.

2007 Saturn Aura Owner Comments

I have an 2007 Saturn Aura, the back seat belts are not long enough. When you fasten the belt you have "no" movement at all. So in order to reach the rear controls the passengers has to remove there belts! even if you not reaching for anything the belt continue to pull you back in the seat every time you sift your weight. This results in the passengers having to "undo" they belts retract them and refasten them while the car is in motion. Not safe. I have taken the car back to Saturn and the service department told me, it is what it is and there is nothing they can do about it. I can't believe that a car manufacture would build a car with seat belts that can't be used by adults. My son is 21 and 160 lbs and it is an problem for him as well. Its not problem with the size of the person but the length of the seat belt. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
