This is my first Saturn and I have had nothing but problem with the 2007 Aura XR. I also did a lot of reviewing before choosing the Aura and was looking at the Camry and the Altima. I chose the Aura because it had all of the features that I wanted and priced lower than the other cars that I was comparing. I guess it's true when they say you get what you pay for.
Aside from other problems listed above I too am having problems with noise (other than normal suspension noise) when going over bumps. Although this noise is occasional is has been persistent. The dealership has tried several times to fix the problem and even suggested that I pursue filing a Lemon Law claim; which I have.
Very disappointed in this car and will never buy another Saturn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
