    I Love My Car. — It's actually a Saturn Vue with the Redline performance package. Which includes a 250 HP Honda VTEC V6 , Transmission with a performance selection, lowered suspension and 18" wheels. It is very fun to drive and can be scary at times too.... spun the 18" wheels on dry pavement doing 60 km/h while speeding up through a yellow at an intersection. Looks mean, especially from the front. Gets good gas mileage if you stay out of the VTEC.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast and handy.

    Cons: Speeding tickets

    I Love My 2004 Saturn Vue. —

    I really don't have any complaints. This is a pretty well built car. The acceleration, braking are pretty good. It does what I need it to do. The handling is to be expected from an SUV. It's top-heavy for a really light SUV. It weighs 3260 lbs. My friends 1998 Hyundai Accent weighs 3163 lbs. Im rough on cars. This car can take a beating like no other. I've hit cars, and received no damage. The only dent i have is when a garage door fell on my car. but the dent is about 3 inches, at most. The scratch and dent resistant side panels are the best things invented. The only repairs I've done to the car are: replace a wheel baring, replace the transmission and clutch, and the windshield wiper system (fuse, relay and switch). Also , this is a relatively inexpensive car to own. I've owned the car for 2.5 years and the repair cost is less then $1500. I don't pay out the ass for gas either. $40 to fill and i can go 400 miles on a single tank, if I drive like a human. If not my tank lasts about 330 miles. All in all, I love this car.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: It's a good car,

    Cons: None that I can think of.

    Awesome, To Bad The Company Went To Shambles. — It may not have a powder of a V6 or V8 but it can get up and go and the manual shift makes it fun to drive. I like the exterior look of this year model more than the new ones which look like all the rest. Over all I love me Vue!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I drive it b/c it's what I have and I love it.

    Cons: Avoid only b/c it's GM make.

    Sexy — It only has a four cylinder so it doe not have much power, but luckily it is a 5-speed. It gets good gas mileage, and does not cost much to maintain. It is made almost completely out of plastic.

    Pros: Sexy

    Cons: Little Power

    An Affordable Sport Option ( Ya Right ).. — It loves to be full. The acceleration is excellent, but warranty issues early on make it a downer. It was built in Tennessee, it just seems that the american components can not handle the Honda powerplant. 255 horsepowermake this a little sleeper.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: drives like just left showroom

    Cons: the breaks are sub par

    Rip Saturn — Shame on you Saturn. They promised that Saturn never changes their prices and never has to deal with rebates and crap. 6 month after buying the car Saturn had for the first time ever an Employee rebate for everyone, we lost $5k. I will never own another Saturn again, ever. I never thought that a new car could give me this much headache.

    Pros: NONE

    Cons: I never thought that a new car could never give me this much headache.

    Lego Car — Pick up is good if you have the V6, but the car totally sucks in the winter cause 80% of the body of the vehicle is plastic and is put together like a lego car. I would not recommend this car to a friend just for the simple reason that it is very hard to customize!

    Pros: Its black.

    Cons: half of the car is plastic

    Probably Our Last American Engineered Car — It's ok for getting around, but not well built. The suspension makes a lot of noise and the electric steering is not very good. Parts that should last 100K+ miles have been replaced at 40-60K. They used a great Honda engine and transmission, but they put such small lubricant reservoirs they are both "starving for oil/fluid" requiring more frequent maintenance. The brakes tend to warp the small rotors after about 15-20K miles. The interior is nice leather and no problems with it or the electronics so far. Lots of space for a small SUV so we can hall the kiddo, friends and stuff comfortably. Unfortunately, this is probably the last American engineered car we'll buy since our previous 3 or 4 had a lot of problems as well. It's a decent automobile, but when you drive over bumps in a car with only 40K miles it shouldn't sound like it is falling apart. Saturn used to have their "own models", but now GM is making it just like all the rest of their brands. The Vue is also the Chevy Equinox and Pontiac Torrent with just a different face.

    Pros: Interior is spacious and nicely done.

    Cons: Way too noisy for such a young car.  Too many early problems with the suspension.
