2004 Saturn VUE V6 AWDReview

Overall:

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.

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

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.

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
V6 AWD
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
