You don't say what year so let's just go with 2008. Seems to be no major problems... far more transmission complaints than engine. http://www.carcomplaints.com/Saturn/Vue/2008/

But admittingly driving hard... your car will treat you back the same way you treat it. Not a judgement, lecture, just an observation.. no offense intended

The Saturn Vue is not designed to take fast corner. The center of gravity is high and subject to roll over. In conclusion, if you intend to do this kind of driving, you should be more concerned about the safety of others than your engine.

From me: Grow up Aaron. If possible. You mentioned it first. Respect your elders before somebody 40 years older than you takes you down a notch and teaches you some in facts of life. Now, put you tail between your legs, go home and don't come play with the big boys. Obviously you can't handle it.

Aaron, well said.... You are the one that's hot stuff or at lease you think you are. Want to make a Saturn Vue a racer, be my guest. Next time you ask a question leave out the stupid stuff. Also let's leave the name calling for face to face.

Ditto. Name calling is so juvenile, this 61 year old man here I guarantee can have you calling for mama inside of 10 seconds.

I own a 2008 Saturn Vue XR. The engine has treated me pretty well so far, it is a powerful engine, the AWD vehicle goes from 0-60 in 7.5 sec. which is pretty good for a 4,300 lb. SUV. Granted, I probably only give it hell once a month on Avg. As far as cornering, again, this vehicle is heavy and has a high CG like another responder has said, so their is quite a bit of vehicle sway. Far more than what my Dad's brand new CRV has. So, it is not a vehicle for taking hard corners. If you are looking for the SUV type space, but still something you would like to whip around corners pretty good, you probably want to get an Outback, because the lower CG, yet it still has great ground clearance and the SUV room. Also you have many engine choices and manual transmission choices. That would be my recommendation for you. Good luck finding one though!

Right you are Bob. I used to be a lot more laid-back...really. Need to get back to old self and not allow these kids to get to me. Not worth it
