Mileage, handling

Cons

Black interior gets too hot inside!

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!

Pros

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.

Pros

spacious, comfy, dent resistant body, interior wood trimming, pretty good on gas, great amp- this car can get up, and pretty quickly. and a quiet engine too. always enough room for friends and family, sunroof/moonroof satellite radio, integrated phone, on star capable (super convenient), light colored interior.  class meets family type of car.  

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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.)

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. We sold this Vue to my parents in December 2013...they love it and have recently surpassed 100,000 miles.
