2009 Saturn Aura Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 152018

Aura LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 139,980 miles


I started the car, started to pull out and power steering stopped, lights flashed warning after it happened. I back up and park, call GMC find out there was a warning sent out, which I did not get, and it expired on October 15th 2018. GMC won't honor this, even though I didn't receive notice of a problem. Miles are low and was only one month from end of said recall (warranty)

problem #2

Aura 15 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

This can be FATAL!!! I brought the car for my daughter in college and she has experienced loss of power and steering wheel locking in the middle of driving with the car actively in gear and running. I called and gave my VIN # and was told mine didn't qualify and wasn't on the list. The codes given by my OnStar account are the same codes recalled for Saturn for the previous year. I've already paid $600.00 for related steering repairs and it's still doing the same thing. The codes are C0545 Power Steering and C0561 traction control but these codes will not come up at the dealer. The steering shaft is the issue and I feel Saturn/Chevy - GM needs to take responsibility before people continue to die and have major fatalities.

Loss of power steering, like driving an Army 10 ton truck, maybe even worse..
