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.

problem #2

Jun 272018

Aura XR 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 102,001 miles


Bad wheel speed sensor. Sensor is permanently fixed to the wheel bearing assembly, so to fix a few dollar part, you have to replace the assembly. Expensive, frustrating and useless. Second time for this one.

My wife drove to dealership at advice of OnStar on Friday. Was told by dealership it would be ok to drive it for weekend and to bring back Monday. Took by Monday at 1045AM and was told they were too backed up already and wouldn't be able to look at it until after 3:30 but they were pretty sure it was just a loose wire in the armrest because it had occurred on several other vehicles. Told to bring it back around 7AM Tuesday. Arrived at 7:30 on Tuesday and left it. Received call at 4:00PM stating they didn't have parts and it would be Friday; come get it and bring it back then.

This is POOR customer service.
