Is there a problem with 2008 saturn vue transmission

Asked by Aug 27, 2014 at 09:19 AM about the 2008 Saturn VUE XE V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue with a 3.5 liter v6 and the six speed transmission.  I have been having problems with it while in first gear.  The transmission will make a noise and not move , then all of a sudden it will go and shift normally.  This has happened to me twice now in the past two days.  I am afraid it will be needing major repairs which I do not have the money for. That's why I bought it, so I wouldn't have to worry about repairs for quite awhile.  Wondering if there is a known problem with these types of Transmissions

Is the noise kinda like a growl? If so the pump is getting air instead of fluid. Is the fluid color dark or smell burnt and is it full of fluid. When was it serviced?

From past experience there major components on a car that just can't be ignored no matter what. The transmission is one of them. Take it to the repair shop before more damage is caused and prove even more expensive.
