For those of you with a 2005 Saturn Vue

We received a recall letter for our Saturn Vue, the recall lists 2005 Saturn Vues with a 5 speed automatic transmission. The transmission may have a torque converter condition causing transmission vibration between 20 and 45 mph. The nearest GM dealer will provide the fix. Just thought we would let you know just in case you didn't get a letter.

Happy Trails

Got mine for my 2006 Vue too. Also included with the letter is a claim form for expenses you have incurred to fix the problem yourself.

Mine had that problem and after a bit of research of others who had experienced the shudder, etc, I determined my best bet was to change the transmission fluid as others reported that to cure the problem. I also found that you really needed to go to a Honda dealer to buy the fluid....about $7 per quart and I took 5 quarts plus the crush washer to have an import motors shop do the change. I know that they didn't get ALL the fluid changed but it sure did completely fix the problem with mine. I plan to get mine in for a check up at a GM dealer and have the ECM reprogrammed as offered and also send in for a refund on the $$ I spent for the tranny oil change....about $125 total. Maybe help me fill the MH tank one time.
