2006 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

The 2006 Saturn Vue had an exhaust bolt broke when taken to dealership at scottsdale Saturn. The bolt was connected to the exhaust manifold up by the engine. They said it must have broke off but I didn't believe them. So it would have cost to much at the dealership and took it somewhere else to get it fixed, but still think Saturn should have fixed it for free. I think it should be a recall because they Saturn said the bolt was so hot that it broke off. Also the ignition switch started giving me problems now and the keys are ok, it's the ignition switch and there should be a recall on that to. Alot of people with 2006 Vue Saturn are having the exhaust problems and ignition problems. What could you people do for all of us. Please help, thank you.

We bought a Saturn Vue in June of 2006. 2 months after we purchased the Vue we had to bring it in for exhaust and converter and oxidation replacement. Then 2 weeks later we had to have the ignition lock cylinders replaced we could not start our truck. Then in 07 we had the converter and manifold replaced. We were told that the manifold was torqued to much from the manufacture. Then June of this year same issue with the exhaust and converter again. Say the replaced a spring in the converter.
