A few times since the summer of 2003 we would try to shut the rear passenger car door and it would not catch to close. We put some lithium grease thinking it just needed that. This weekend while putting the kids in the car the door would not shut. It took 30 minutes of manipulating the handle, door locks and window to try and get the door to shut. We cannot let our children ride in the car because we know the latch could fail and our children could be put in harms way.
1. The interior driver side door handle is "chrome" covered and has caused cuts that required a 'butterfly' stitching. 2. Every time I open the door I get cut 3. I have contacted Saturn for almost a year to repair this to no avail. 1. The tire pressure sensors are on backwards. If my left front tire is going flat the sensors and lights say it's the left rear tire. 2. This happens each time my tire gets low and I just figured out the problem 3 months ago. It causes me to over inflate the incorrect tire and the low tire is still low on air. 3. I have contacted Saturn for almost a year about this and they have not helped.

Safety recall for 2008 Saturn Vue with same color door handles would be replaced with chrome handles. My 2008 Saturn Vue has the same color door handles and when I took it into the dealership, they stated that they would not replace the handles because the VIN wasn't part of the recall. However, my door handles have stuck in the open position several times. Knowing of the recall, I'm very careful to make sure that the door handle latches and the door closes. Although I'm careful, my passengers may not notice it and could possibly have the door open on them.

The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Vue. After attempting to open the driver's side door approximately 12 times, the contact was unsuccessful. All the other doors on the vehicle functioned properly and allowed him to enter and exit. The dealer advised him to bring the vehicle in for inspection so they could attempt to identify the defect. The failure and current mileages were 45,000.
Drivers door would not open. . This happened 3 or 4 times over the past couple months but usually after attempting several times the door would finally open, however this time it would not open. . I returned to my home and refused to drive the car until the dealer could look at it and solve the problem. It took 4 days before I could get an appointment. After driving 75 miles to the nearest dealership I was told that the door panel had 2 broken clips that held the side panel on and that it would cost $450 to replace the door panel. . I find this to be an extreme safety hazard in the event of an accident or fire and the need to evacuate the automobile. . My issue has not been addressed as of yet but after owning a total of 3 Saturn cars and all three having defective issues that Saturn will probably do nothing. I find it odd that Saturn offered 2 years ago to buy back our Saturn Vue because they wanted to use it for research. . . We declined although we now regret not following through with it. Saturn does not stand behind their product and never claim liability for their faulty product. I would never buy another Saturn product nor would I ever recommend Saturn to a friend.
