Saturn Complaint - Saturn Vue Premature Battery Failure
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.
Nice product quality and service Saturn, this will be my last American vehicle.
