Pros

It is a Saturn so it is reliable and safe.

Cons

Had some ignition problems at first, fixed under warranty. Bought it to tow a camper, it will not tow anything.

Saturn Vue Family Transportation. — This has been a good family transportation for years. It has begun to show it age. It will not tow even with a v6 and automatic transmission. Would really like to get it back to normal running condition as it is a good vehicle to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

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.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

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 .

Cons

body style not too hip for a young single girl.

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.

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.

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.

Great Car Of All Around. — This car is great. I get 30 mpg at minimum. I live on a long/muddy dirt road and have no problems getting in and out. Holds tons of cargo. I can pick 6 bales of hay and have room.

Steering.

What Can U Expect From A Saturn... — It's a 4 cylinder so the pick up is okay, but its also a manual so its quite okay too. The steering on the car is very percise, you can move it a little to the side and it will drift very far.

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!
