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 .

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.

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.

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!

2006 Vue — My Vue fails to shine on the highway due to the fact that it is a 4 cylinder. Braking and handling are normal. There can be quite a bit of rotor noise when going over potholes. In the three years I have owned it I have replaced all the tires changed the brakes and had the car alligned. Other than that I have basically changed the oil and air filters. The body has dent resistant panels but they seem to scratch very easily. Inside wear is average and the carpets and seats have been kept looking like new because of a protection package that my dealer applies every year. Gas mileage is better than average at about 25-28 mpg on the highway. City mileage not as good. If the car was a V6 it would be a lot better to drive.

2006 Vue V6 Awd Is Great — 2006 Vue V6 AWD is great - Honda V6 and Honda 5 speed auto, same as in the Acura MDX. How can you beat that for value? Only complaints are: gas milage not so good, and rear brakes should be disc not drum.
