Vue 4-cyl

  • 17,000 miles
I have a 2007 Saturn Vue greenline and have had the hybrid battery replaced after having the car shut off and restart and losing all hybrid function. I then found out that all battery cells were leaking in my car. Now the car is in the shop due to 3 incidents of sudden acceleration in one day. First time I was parking and the car lunged forward while foot was on brake, second time at a stop light and third time stopping at train tracks and that was very dangerous. I then parked my car and had it towed because of the safety concerns. The dealership says they can not duplicate the problem and tried to return the vehicle with no repairs done. I refused and they still have possession of the vehicle. I have owned it one year and the mileage is approximately 17,000. The first issue was fixed 3 weeks before the second issue started.
