2003 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 192003

Vue 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 10,000 miles


My 2003 fwd Saturn Vue has had constant front-end, steering, and braking issues that could result in a crash. The Vue has 34,000 miles on it. Since 10,000 miles, it has been in the shop nearly every month for loose front end suspension parts, loose steering parts, loose brake parts, etc. The dealership claims they cannot duplicate the problems. Once they are duplicated for them, they claim to replace parts and that the issues are resolved, although there is little or no change in symptoms. The vehicle does not feel safe when driving it, and the current problems may result in a crash.

Vue 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Vehicle was purchased in June 2003. At the dealer the stabilizer links have been replaced 3 times because of severe binding (2 times in August 2003 and 1 time in September, 2003). The factory was notified by the dealer and the factory advised that no fix or replacement link is available. The factory also advised that it is a know problem of a defective part and other Vues are experiencing the problem. When the binding of the stabilizer link occurs it causes a grinding and clunking noice while turning.
