2008 Saturn Aura transmission NHTSA complaints: Power Train:Automatic Transmission:Lever And Linkage:Column Shift

NHTSA — Power Train: Automatic Transmission: Lever And Linkage: Column Shift 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.
