2008 Saturn Vue Red Line — I bought my Saturn Vue Red Line with about 19,000 on it. So far it's been great. Handles very nicely, love the interior and storage capicity is more than I hoped for. Speaking of storage, make sure you ask for a trunk liner for the back. It's just a nice practical piece that's standard with these cars but can save some wear and tear to the interior. Gas mileage (if my calc is right), is slightly lower than advertised and for some reason the dashboard rattles slightly on occasion. A little annoying, but not a deal breaker. Overall, a solid car for the price. We really enjoy it

Reliable Vehicle — its great, mine is fully loaded and the amemnities are great, heated seats , sunroof, all power, the cargo in the back is great, has a pull up handle that folds our three baskets you can use to seperate your groceries, quite useful if you don't want your items all over the back of your car...you never know!

My Fun Little Suv — It is easy to get in and out of. I love the gold exterior.and the interior. The heating and cooling is really cool, because you just put it on auto and set the temp and it automatically gets to that templ Also it has a jack for my MP3 player and the radio is awsome. So are the intermitten wipers, which by the way you just set them and they detect when they need to wipe the windshield. Complaints, the ceiling stuff hangs low and obstructs my rearview mirror. and the auto side mirror swich is backward.

`08 Saturn Vue — For a SUV this truck is built solid. Its reliable. You put your foot down and it goes! You take it off road and it goes! You fill the tank and the gas goes! This vechile is amazing but the only complaint I have about it, is that with the 6cyl it uses gas far faster then I am used to. Its a trade off though, you want the power you have to pay for it some how

Pros

I love the color, the handling, the gas mileage....

Cons

The passanger has no room in the front because of Davi's car seat.....

Smooth Ride — I love it! It is small yet big enough to do travelling..... The only downside is that with all our luggage now and a new addition to the family our Rotti cannot come on our trips to Edmonton! The nice thing.....we don't spend too much more on gas then we did when I had my Saturn SC2.

I Love It, And Would Buy Another In A Heart Beat. — This is no sissy car, It's a shame that GM dumped Saturn. Bad Move. GM seems to want to discontinue making popular cars such as the Celebrity and station wagons. This car so much fun to drive that I sometimes don't want to stop.

Tap shift, the body kit, and sporty look

Cons

no sunroof standard and no mpg

Best Gm Sports Suv — Great car, It is all you can ask for in a gm sports SUV the tap shift makes driving interactive and can be used by all, only thing that needs to be added is a sunroof standard and a more integrated driver information center with mpg and tire pressure like on our g6 other then that great car with a ton of fun features, The body kit also is a nice feature that always turns heads Go test drive one, you'll fall in love.

Ride

Pleasant Smaller Suv — We bought this vehicle with 38,000 miles. Ride is somewhat buoyant and acceleration with the 2.4 Ecotec is just adequate. Fuel mileage is good: 22 around town, 26 highway. Noise inside the cabin can be intrusive at higher speeds and GM must have realized that when they installed a radio with the capability of getting louder as you drive faster! Fit and finish appears good and of substantial quality (for plastic anyway, leather seats feature a very heavy grade of leather). Towing capacity isn't much with the 4 cylinder (1500 lbs) but it handles my 5x10 lawn trailer with ease.

Pros

Looks good, solid, feel safe  rides good, brakes good and powerful engine.

Cons

Very noisy interior,  brakes and struts. Transmission 6 speed feels like it's going to break or not safe. Steering makes a rubbing sound or like something is falling apart. The front seats frame is defective. The carpet color literally came out when detail, but not the seats.

Nice Vehicle, But Needs Better Quality Parts To Avoid Breakdown Under Normal Use. — The front seats make a lot of noise when sitting on them, because frame and springs are defective. Transmissions wave plates break easily under normal use causing costly repair. The struts make a creaking and clicking sound when turning. The steering column makes a rubbing sound.
