    I have a 2003 Saturn Vue v 6 fwd with automatic transmission. I had to
    replace the front tires at 17000 miles because they were wearing
    uneven. I noticed clunking noises in the front end and had it checked
    at the dealership and they determined the strut mounts were bad and
    repaced them and re aligned the wheels. Since then I have had it back
    at least 3 time for the clunking noise.Each time they just retorque
    them but this only seems to last a few thousand miles. I also have a
    noise that sounds just like a bad cv joint when making a tight left
    turn. This too has been checked by the dealer at least 3 times and the
    diagnosis is always the same. They say it is a spring in the intake
    and that Saturn is aware of this problem but just considers it a minor
    anoyance and will not fix it at this time. Has any one else heard of
    It also now has developed a creaking clunking noise in the rear
    which I suspect is also strut mounts.
