2008 Saturn Aura Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saturn? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Aura towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Aura's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Saturn Aura transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saturn. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
