MILAN -- I own a 2007 Saturn Vue 3.5L with 22,300 miles. I had a dead battery at 6pm on a Friday. I called the closest dealership on Saturday and was told they had no batteries for this vehicle, instructed to bring it in on Monday morning and they would 'order' one for me. When I told them I had to go to work on Monday, they told me there was nothing they could do about it. I wound up spending most of Saturday trying to find anyone with a replacement battery. It appears GM/Saturn uses a 'special' battery for this vehicle and 1) the model is too 'new' for most replacement suppliers to begin stocking, and 2) because it is special, no one wants to stock a slow moving item.

The timing chain on my car broke. When it broke it cause damage to the engine which has cost me over 1600.00. I tired to work with Saturn. They tried to say it was caused by not having the oil changed. I bought the car used 4 months ago. I have all the receipt from the previous owner who had all oil changes done at the dealers. I did research and have found a TSB on the oil nozzel. which has been redesigned. The NTHSA has started an investigation into this. I have filed a complaint. If you have has this problem please file a complaint. 6 Replies - Latest reply on 09/04/2013Add reply

MOSINEE, WISCONSIN -- I own a Saturn 1994 SW2, from the time I bought the car , used, it has lost oil, slowly, but does lose enough that have to continually add. I have a close friend that owns a 1999 Saturn SL2 that has the same problem but a lot worse than mine, we have not detected a leak or that its burning it, I would say that like I read in another review that they produced a defective head.
