2004 Saturn VUE V6Review

Surprisingly Great Package — drives nice and smooth, doesn't handle like a sports car but still decent, a lot quicker than expected, I've recoreded sub 7 second 0-60 runs in a FWD with auto, great to carry a few passengers though it is tight with a baby seat in the back

Pros: quick, smooth shifting, rides smooth, decent gas mileage, reliable, body doesn't rust or dent

Cons: no manual trans with the V6

2004 Saturn VUE Base AWDReview

Love The Duck! — I like the Vue. At this point in my life (old fart) I would rather "step- up" into a vehicle instead of having to "climb up out" of one. Can handle alot more cargo than you think. Decent handling too.

Pros: Good on gas.

Cons: Would get the bigger engine - but V4 is good for just around town.

2004 Saturn VUE V6 AWDReview

Good Handling And Acceleration, Good Mileage For Suv. — This car is comfy, has leather seats, and is bright blue, a really pretty blue if you ask me. The handling is good in terms of SUV handling, and the AWD is a must for winter driving. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels are durable. The problem is the strut suspension... it tends to squeak in warm conditions.

Pros: Pretty
Comfy leather interior
Good acceleration
Honda engine
Has a grocery/luggage rack in the back
Seats 5

Cons: Not the best mileage in the world at 25 mpg highway
Struts squeak

Great, Composit Body Panels Still Looked New After 10 Years. By rayjr14

Easy for car seat use, being a do-it-yourselfer I carried a lot when all seats went flat. Very comfortable and peppy. I always had a sports car and a truck, I liked this SUV much better than the truck... Read More
