11000 0 Hybrid battery was leaking and as a result the hybrid system had become erratic. gas gauge malfunctioned. Sensor replaced. Could have been malicious fuel siphoning- problem corrected. 
33700 0 Front idler arm bushing. Was rattling. Also door trim - very minor leak. 
35000 0 Weatherstrip on driver side door developed very slight leak.  Front stabilizer link had a bad bushing. Saturn will fix anything on warranty these days no matter if it is broken or not. 
40000 0 Heater control switch started clicking very softly. We forced an investigation and they fixed it on warranty. End of warranty, tires and brakes good- this car has been very good. Better than my Honda Civic 2008. 
54000 440 Belt tensioner and fan belt. Tensioner was loosing ground but could have gone many more miles. Belt replaced as an efficiency -but was not worn. 
79700 120 Error code b0062 - not corrected this trip. Seat belt sensor. 
89000 236 Caliper stuck on one wheel. Replaced.

15000 0 Sensor and hood latch After last engine software upgrade, I can run at high speed on highway for a while, then come off the expressway and Hybrid engine dies instead of just going to 'idle' stop. Mechanic was unable to recreate the problem but it has happened to me at least 6 
19000 0 Hybrid 2007 Vue hood latch is out of stock. Previous repair personnel did not follow up at the factory. This time they called up several levels trying to get authorization to have a part manufactured. New Vue has different part!!! Campaign notification on 2 problems. One involves the battery system on the hybrid not charging properly. To repair they went over the entire charging system making some modifications and updated software. All done under warranty but takes 2 days at shop. 
132 The hood latch was finally replaced so that the car could get inspected. Apparently GM had to have several of these manufactured since the 2008's VUE has a different part. The annoying part was while the hood latch did not work the Hybrid was disabled. 
37700 0 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid had to have complete new air conditioning compressor and 'parts'. It took 4 days for GM to authorize this repair and another 4 days to get the parts. 
39000 272 Car would not start. Car battery seemed to be the problem because after sitting for a while, it would start but Battery light was on. Alternator replaced, car battery and 3 hybrid batteries replaced. 
43000 250 Check Engine light was on. Cylinder two was misfiring. Martin Cadillac said 5 days to get parts. I expressed my displeasure since 2 previous trips took over 10 day to get parts. Ignition coil, spark plugs replaced using non GM parts. 
52500 366 Replaced the ignition key hole. It was jamming like so many other Saturns. 
55000 125 Ignition key lockset jammed and had to be entirely replaced. 
56700 150 Intermittent engine hiccups. Root cause loose ground wire on AC caused electrical system intermittent failure when A/C cut in.
