2001 vs 2002 Aurora

Just a quick question, what if all are the differences between a 2001 and a 2002 Aurora 3.5 besides colour packages and rear exhaust options. Any differences in the engine or the transmission?

Don't think there are any. In 2003 they made the v8 only. All these cars came with a 100% transmission failure rate and also the same for the ABS module.
I was lucky to score a near new factory rebuilt tranny from Pick n Pull and had it installed total cost to buy it, pull it and install $500 runs great now. When the traction lights come on U just ignore them, learnt to live with them.
Love the 8 way adjustable seats and comfortable ride. Will drive it till wheels fall off...
2002 3.5 v6 180k miles.

Good to hear! I just picked up a nice Aurora well kept. Some issues I've come across are a leaking exhaust manifold or gasket, leaking steering fluid i don't know where yet and a secondary air pump issue that sees the CEL light to come on. Another issue I have is the car has been smoked in before and I need to change the smell of the interior lol. Oh and also a bad strut on the back.

Very nice car overall! All the electronics work I just need to change some of the bulbs in them.
