I own a 2006 Saturn Vue AWD in the 2 years I have owned the car here is a list of what has been replaced; 3 set of front brake rotors due to excessive warping to a point where they cant be turned which resulted in a shimmy of the steering wheel when the brakes are applied that keeping control was almost impossible. 2)rear wheel bearings at 25,000mi. 3) front strut mounts also at 25,000 mi. 4) pass seat air bag/seat heater module($907 one wont work without the other) 5) rear wiper motor6) windshield washer pump 6) gas tank vent valve solenoid switch (this makes the engine light com on) 7)3 yes 3 radios. 8) upper pass. Seat heater element.

Nov. 2007 car serviced, 35311 miles seemed to be fine. Noise began, serviced March 2008, recommended I needed new brakes but could not guarantee that would solve the problem. Noise continued, took it back to be serviced July 2008 and told that the struts and sway bars needed to be replaced along with the lift gate latch and that may not solve my problem. The vehicle is only driven on city streets and interstate highways. I have been in contact with Saturn customer service and they are not working with me to my satisfaction. The vehicle is a 2006 Saturn Vue. I cannot find out if there have been other Vue's with the same problem.
