Asked by Feb 05, 2013 at 01:56 PM about the 2008 Saturn VUE XR V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue V6 XR AWD (3.6 L) and it has about 56,000.  It suddenly started to have transmission issues (excessive flare during upshifts and hessitation when in reverse) and I have it at the dealer under the 100,000 mile PT Warrenty.  My concern is that the dealer is doing the "minimal" - as he states it per GM's recommendations (expected!!) - which is to replace the ETU.  My concern is that the more I dig into this I see that it apperas there is a history of mechanical issues with this transmission and I am concerned it will be "band aided" to get past the last 6 months of my PT warrenty and then "I WILL OWN THE PROBLEM.  What can you tell me about the history of this transmission and do I have cause for concern?

Last item - NEW GM SINCE THE BANKRUPTCTY  -  HA!!!!!  
Motto still applies "I'LL SELL YOU CRAP 'CAUSE I DON'T WANT YOU BACK!!"
