With the history of Saturn Vues having transmission issues, this one has now failed us. It did it last summer and this summer. The Subaru I owned had well over 200,000 miles and no issues the same goes for a Mazda I owned. The approximate failure mileage was 66,000. Those short times it would go off for maybe a mile or sometimes 3-4 miles then come back on. Gm technicians' online responses to forum complaints of 2008 Saturn Vue and other models stability track system and transmission issues lead me to believe gm is aware of the problems but have yet to take recall action to address them.
If the dealer service department will not work on your car, then it is time to write a letter to the Saturn manegment team and see if they can motivate your dealer to fix your problem. It would also cause the car to go into reserve power and the car would only go 10 miles an hour. This last incident vehicle had to be towed to dealer. The vehicle stalled while driving in reverse and would not restart. I turned off the car and let sit 10 minutes. With or without our small children. Thanks, Greg If your brake fluid was that low, it's likely you need brake pads somewhere.
The feature was standard on models equipped with an automatic transmission and anti-lock brakes. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where they informed the contact that the failure could possibly be related to the brake pressure modulator valve. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. I now have 74,000 miles. On the high way when I step on the gas my car won't shift to a higher gear to pick up speed.
It will not go more than 20-30mph. The failure mileage was 935. After driving home, the key fob worked again along with the dome lights. I need to pull of the road and shut down the vehicle then restart for the indicator lights to shut off. I head home and as I¿m getting on the entrance ramp to I-75 something came through my vents and in my throat and chest and I start coughing really bad and tightness in chest.
Could not move the steering wheel or anything. I head home and as I¿m getting on the entrance ramp to I-75 something came through my vents and in my throat and chest and I start coughing really bad and tightness in chest. The vehicle was diagnosed as having timing chain failure. I nearly missed the off ramp. While this system doesn't work as well as those which use the brakes to limit wheelspin, Saturn's software-based system is still very effective and inexpensive. The engine would not start. Issue or is it supposed to do that? This problem does not always occur when driving, but seems to happen when you make the first left turn in the morning.
The current and failure mileage was 67,000. It I had been driving when it snapped it could have been extremely dangerous or fatal. Most likely cause is a wheel speed sensor or the wring to it. I bought the car with 420 miles. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined that the oxygen sensor was faulty warranty.
A state trooper stopped to assist me, said to get in safer place so he held traffic and drove behind me to get off interstate while I wait for tow truck. This will happen at least once a week. I have been late for appointments, late for picking my children up and getting them from school, due to waiting for the car to stop flickering and malfunctioning. Well it started again about 1-2 weeks ago. In the last 6-8 months this has happened 3 times and when it happens the car seems like it is slamming on the brakes. I've never taken the vehicle in because they always tell me they can't do anything unless they can reproduce the problem that I'm bringing in the vehicle for.
When I googled this problem, it appears that a lot of Saturn Vue users have had the same issues and it appears as if the dealerships are not sure how to fix this problem. It continued to make this noise while I was at a stop light, not moving, tried putting it in neutral, park, nothing would make the revving stop. Had front pads and rotors replaced brakes flushed. When going downhill, the car would stop, and the brakes would lock up. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.
The vehicle was driven approximately a mile to home and shut off. A state trooper stopped to assist me, said to get in safer place so he held traffic and drove behind me to get off interstate while I wait for tow truck. Called onstar and now abs codes, told to take in for service within 7 days, I advised her cannot drive over 20mph and requested a tow. Restarting the vehicle did not correct the condition. The only fix was complete replacement of the fuse box assembly because the main positive lug to the fuse box is only held on by plastic. The car shifts and drives fine no jerking between gear changes and otherwise no reduction in power.
I know there was a recall and was never notified. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. Turned it on, it would not go away the engine was in revving so high I thought it might blow. Car transmissions should last at least 100k miles. It sometimes would stay on for 50 or more miles and other times it would stay on for only a mile or two.
