    Big Red — Its a stick and shifts very smooth... great on gas! and has a lot of room for me and all my stuff. The dash looks very nice at night. Radio messes up sometimes(factory)... Love the room and the fold down seats...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The deal i got on it

    Cons: Learning how to park it in the narrow spots at PV.

    I Like The Honda Engine In The Saturn, It Gave It Good Longevity, But The Other Parts Are Still Gm. — The 2005 Saturn Vue was the best out of the 3 Vues I have owned, *(an 2003, 2004 and 2005). Good HP *(250 with the V6) and nice cargo hold for a mid sized SUV. Fuel mileage wasn't the best and handling in the rain, ice or snow was horrible. Overall appearance was suave, but you really have to know how to outfit a Vue with the right parts and pieces to make it swanky. Interior was probably some of the poorest I have seen. Although it was custom leather on the inside, it stained pretty easily and dashboard trim was failing although well maintained.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you have a small family it's the perfect size.

    Cons: Traction in simply rain is very bad, even with oversized custom wheels.  CAUTION!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Cons: cheap plastic interior

    Improved And More Lovable. — I used to somewhat loathe this vehicle, but don't get me wrong--it's a good little vehicle. It's not too expensive, gas-wise or payment-wise. It used to be quite a bore to drive, but I just got a new loud exhaust put on and I'm happier than ever. I get giddy everytime I get in it now, and that's what I was hoping for in a vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice sound, more acceleration, unexpected love.

    Cons: Still ugly, but that's just about it.

    My Vue — I think the best think about this car is the cost is goog for what you get, the light weight make is gas effective and performance is decent. If you get this model with 4 cylider get the stick shift the power is good.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good enough power

    Cons: Loose interior parts that rattle

    My Car — I love my pretty car. She's been good to me since she came to our family new in '05. Looks cool with 20 inch rims and tires. Winters are slow going as this car is plastic and sucks in snow and slush. Snowies don't help.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cool looking

    Cons: Slow, 4cylinder, sucky in the snow

    Good First Car, But I'm Still Looking At Every Other Possibility. — Accelerates very quickly, especially for a mini SUV, but it tops out at 100 mph. I know it's the governor chip, but seriously. Ugly little car, steering is sluggish, AWD is interesting in the snow. Surprisingly easy to drift, but you can tell when the AWD is helping keep control of the vehicle. Says it gets 25 mpg highway, but I seem to burn through it very quickly. I stay under 3k rpms.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick, enough space in back, small.

    Cons: Ugly, boring, not much for customization.

    I Love This Suv! — The first time I drove this SUV I was in love with it. Mine is a 5 speed manual transmission and it shifts beautifully. This replaced a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier 4 door that died at 72000 Miles.

    Pros: Great handling.  Excellent sound system.  Great cargo space.   Seats were EASY to "fold flat". Interior is stylish and functional with all imortant controls within EASY reach of the driver's seat!

    Cons: Suspension is very tight.
