I don't know if this could really be considered as a complaint, I was just concerned about it and wanted to let someone know about it or see if it needed to be investigated. I have a 2007 Saturn Vue AWD V-6, and had washed off the engine of grime and then drove it about 30 minutes later, normally when I've used the A/C before I always had cold air blowing out of the vents, for some unknown reason after I had washed off the engine and turned on the A/C I had no cold air to come out of the vents, but when I adjusted the knob for the defroster to work, I had cold air, but if I switched the knob back to the vents, there would be no cold air, so I just put up with it that day. After I got home, I let the car just sit in the carport for about 4 day's before I drove it again, and out of curiosity I turned the A/C on, it was on the vent setting, and the air that was being blown was cold again, the only thing I can figure is, that when I washed the engine off I got some kind of switch wet, and with the car just sitting for several day's and the sun's heat dried out that switch, letting the cold air vent to blow out cold air again.it wasn't a big problem, but it sure was uncomfortable driving that day.this is the first time it's ever happened, I'm assuming that even though when you drive and it's raining the water from the wheel wells can't reach that spot or switch, but if you put water on it from above, it probably will cause this type of problem, your guess would be as good as mine, but that's all I can figure that might of happened, at least I have cold air blowing now!!! thanks for listening to my ranting, you never know someone else might have or has had this type of problem.

Started hearing a noise that I assumed was a rock in my brakes. It turned into a chirping noise for a couple days, which then turned into an awful squealing noise when I started it. I called Saturn for an appointment and had to wait 2 days to get in. They told me the bearings were going out on my air conditioner compressor and they would have to order the part. Now it seems there is no part available and they will have to make one special for my car - which means I'm in a rental car for a minimum of 3 weeks - or so they think. My last Saturn was in the shop for 32 days less than a year ago.
