Love My Vue — Loved it. Have nothing bad to say. Mileage was good. Ride was good. Performance was great. Never needed work. Leased it for my wife. It was our first Saturn (now have 5 in the family). The color got a lot of comments (Laser Blue) We drove it on several vacations and got 30+ mpgs every time an that is with a 250hp engine! Cruised quiet, handled great, parallel parking was a snap with the electronic power steering. Performance was smooth and powerful. We sprang for the upgraded stereo and it sounded much better than any stock system I have experienced outside of some VERY EXPENSIVE cars. Lease terms were awesome. I was sorry to part with this car. But our 2008 VUE has turned out to be pretty great as well.

Pros

Easy to work on, inexpensive to own, great gas mileage, great sound system, great family car.  For those who are tall and have trouble with leg and head room, this vehicle has plenty.  Front passenger seat folds down flat to haul larger items on the inside of the vehicle and does have a trailer hitch for lightweight hauling.  Dent-resistant doors are a plus.  Also, has a high safety rating.

Cons

Does have a few blind spots in the front.  And if you turn to quickly, it is easy to slosh the passengers around the vehicle.  Overall, not much to complain about.

Great Vehicle For The Money — This is the 2nd Saturn Vue I have owned. I must say that they both have been a great family car with plenty of room in the back seat for car seats and kids. They have been reliable and you cannot beat the gas mileage at 28 mpg for a mid-size SUV. It rides comfortably on the highway and is great for getting around town. The only reason I'm selling my 2006 Vue is due to lack of funds to make payments. I do wish I could keep it but family comes first and a car payment is not feasible at this time.

Reliable vehicle.

Squeaky brakes....even after having them change.  My grandmother also has a Saturn with the same issue.

Good , Reliable Vehicle For The Price. — The mileage is great, just wish it was roomier. I will be looking into purchasing a larger vehicle. Though good for a small family. Have driven this car all over ! To Daytona Beach , Cleveland, Ohio, Dallas, it is a very reliable car! I would recommend to anyone .

Pros

Looks...the Red Line package adds bigger wheels and front and rear fascias. It has black interior with suede seats. The one-touch sunroof is one of my favorite things about this car.

Cons

Tires are super expensive since only one company makes them. The mpg is decent, but could be better...I typically get about 17 city and 21 highway.

All Around Great Little Suv — My Vue is a Red Line edition...different wheels, suede seats...V6 fwd. We've taken it cross-country numerous times...it handled us plus all of our treasures. We got side-swiped at Mount Rushmore in 2008 and it was scratched but the plastic panels did exactly what they were supposed to. One good cleaning and they looked good as new.

Loved My Saturn Vue. Sad To Say Goodbye — I absolutely loved this car. It's super reliable and really good with highway mpg. I love the space it gives. Doesn't look too big from the outside but it's interior is really roomy. I love the sunroof, and it's engine is absolutely amazing. Really quiet, smooth, and powerful.

can carry a lot for a faster car, and great for small families

Cons

it does have some cheaply made parts

Great Family Ride That Can Go Fast Too — It can go pretty fast and pick up speed quick, but not all of the car is greatly built. Great for small families. Has A great look all together inside and out if you don't look really close. Has great performance, its all fun to drive and even more fun when you add all the electronics i have in it and it still runs great.

Vue It — No repairs, just an oil change and wash! Fold down seats allow me to carry home my purchases without hiring a truck. Drives and accelerates well. Fun to drive with chrome sidelines and step up glidepath. Sunroof included with luggage rack and tow bar!

This car is the best for towing behind a motor home!  Easy to hook up and disconnect and one fuse pulled gets it ready to tow and ready to drive.

Cons

Wind noise

Best Tow-behind Vehicle If You Can Find One. — Looked all over for this car before purchasing used. Only THREE in the entire country were available at the time (in black, sunroof, leather seats). Flew to Florida to purchase sight unseen and drove it back to Texas. One of the best cars I've owned. Reliable, easy to repair (none ever seem necessary) AND one of the easiest vehicles to tow behind your motorhome (my reason for purchasing). Just open the hood, pull one fuse and you are good to go. Ok...a couple of easy other steps like moving trans from park to neutral, but other than that, pull the fuse and put it back in when you stop to disconnect your car. That's it. I have towed her over 20K miles with absolutely NO PROBLEMS.

Drove It And Fell In Love With It! — Just purchased this Used and absolutely love it. Smooth ride, great acceleration, and is comfortable and roomy inside. Excellent handling! I got mine w/high mileage for only being a few years old, but it drives like a brand new car.
