Question about Saturn Vue

1 Answer

2003 Saturn Vue with 97+miles on it. Squeaky brakes; informed pads worn; Invested in new brake pads/rotors on front and clean/maintenance on rear drums. Squeak still there. Called shop: they said to give it 500 miles. I'm at about mile 200; squeak still there. Should I be concerned? Could there be something else that is a problem?

I had the same problem. I had the control arms repaced in the back when my car was still under warranty. See if a mechanic can take a look at it to be sure.

On the intermediate shaft. Steering shaft there is a rubber boot where it goes thru the firewall. This rubs, sometimes can be lubed with a silicone spray, sometimes needs the shaft replaced.

SOURCE: 2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 has a harsh grinding sound in front wheels

Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: Squeaky Door....embarrasing!

1: White Lithium Grease
2: Silicone Grease

Either will work just as well, though lithium may be easier to find at the local auto-parts store...and a bit cheaper.
* They silicone comes in a spray which makes it easier to get to the hinges.

In a pinch, a can of Liquid Wrench will cure the noise, but it doesn't offer the long-term benefits of grease.

** There are 2 sets of hinges, upper and lower...and be sure to get the rollers on the guide arms.

2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?


anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

How do I make maintain a 2003 Saturn Vue? Want to alleviate problems before they occur. It's been running and doing great so far.


Change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles, rotate your tires every other oil change, keep tires including spare properly inflated, check and replace air filter when dirty, replace fuel filter every 12,000 miles. make sure your front end is aligned properly, Check and maintain fluid levels for brakes, radiator, transmission, windshield washer fluids check visually for brake pad and rotor wear and replace when needed. Check condition of windhield wiper blades periodically. Check the tension and condition of belts and hoses every oil change.

How long should I be able to expect my brakes and rotors to last? I have a two year old car with less than 30,000 miles on it. 2007 Saturn Vue. I don't know what the Green Line is supposed to mean but it...


it all depends on your driving conditions if you have a lot of stop and go traffic everyday you will wear them out alot faster than highway travel. generally a good set of brakes especially original brakes should last about 50,000 miles if not driven to hard or under extreme conditions, most rotors can be machined atleast once before having to be replaced with new ones unless your vehicle runs composite rotors they will have to be replaced everytime you have new pads installed.

Squeaky brake when cold


If your rear brakes are making the noise take off the rear drums and spray some brake clean in there on both shoes and the drum let all parts dry which wont take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute or two depending on the brake clean also if you want you can have someone take a piece of emry cloth to your front rotors and scuff them up a bit with about 80 to 100 grit emry and spray them and the pads off with brake clean let it dry to you can emry the pads to this will get most if not all the glaze on pads and rotors.

2004 Saturn Vue Brakes


The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
