I have a 2006 Saturn Vue and I have several problems with my car. When I had a car wreck either of the air bags did not deploy but the lights stay on. I had to pay $596 to replace my key ignition and sometimes it still sticks. My driver door will not open and one of the seat belts in the rear has not worked properly. I see that they are recalling other Saturn but not mines.

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.

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.

2006 Vue rear tires were cupped, tires were replaced. Consumer experienced unusual steering conditions. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but they were unable to determine the cause of the problem. The vehicle was taken to and independent mechanic who determined that there was a problem with the steering. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who stated they were going to swapped the rack from another Vue and changed some sensors in the steering column. The dealer never made the repairs.
