Poor Quality, Think Twice Before You Buy!!!

If you enjoy being annoyed by rattling, vibrations and other noises, then this is the vehicle for you. The noises aren't noticeable while playing the radio but once you mute the volume all the noises come alive. The engine is extremely noisy, the suspension system rattles loudly when going over speed bumps and small cracks in the pavement at park lot speeds.
This vehicle also has serious transmission issues. Eight days after purchasing my 2007 Saturn Aura XR with only 36,000 miles, it had to undergo a major transmission repair. The entire transmission had to be rebuilt due to poor quality parts and a faulty sensor. One would expect better quality and performance from a low mileage vehicle, this is not the case with GM's Saturn Aura XR sedan.
I only have 2 positive comments about this vehicle, it looks great and rides nicely on the highway. The vehicle is very attractive and has a nice style to it. But looks aren't everything, especially when quality was sacrificed. The car has a very smooth ride once you're out on the open road, where the presence of speed bumps aren't an issue. The vehicle handles well and accelerates very quickly. If you are an aggressive driver with a lead foot, it'll cost you at the pump because this vehicle has very poor fuel economy. The gas mileage can be compared to that of an SUV or Truck.
So, if you are looking for a vehicle built with poor quality, makes constant rattling noises, POOR fuel economy and transmission issues, then this is the vehicle for you. However, I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone who's considering it for their next purchase. This is my 2nd Saturn Aura XR in less than a 2 month time span, the 1st vehicle was returned for similar issues. I was certain that my luck would be better with the second vehicle, unfortunately, the second vehicle performs even worst. I believe this is a poorly built product from GM, I have no faith in this vehicle at all.
