Asked by Oct 27, 2016 at 11:42 PM about the 2005 Saturn VUE Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Car being sold at a dealership. Apparently some special
internet price of $1500 for a 2005 Saturn VUE. Miles are at
115,000 (pretty low considering the year). KBB says
market for those are anywhere between $2-$3k. Is it worth
it?

It all depend,s on the car,s past history,before purchasing, run a carfax and have it checked by a trust worthy mechanic,just because it is listed under fair market value does not mean it is a good deal,HTH.

It would be worth it if there are no mechanical problems. You don't want to waste your time if it has a motor tick or on the verge of blowing a head gasket. If you know any mechanics ask them to accompany you to the dealer and check out the car.

I traded my 2006 VUE and the dealer is listing it for $5,000. 63k miles, suspension problems, rattle in steering column need repairs and rough idle when running AC.

It's not a special Internet price; it's a Saturn price. You apparently haven't heard about Saturns. The reason they're selling that car so cheap is because it's junk. ALL Saturns are junk. Please don't buy that car. You WILL regret it. If it has 115,000 miles on it, the transmission is shot, and in a few more miles, the engine will be shot too. Do NOT buy that car.

Larkin has no idea what he is talking about. Saturn Vues are amazing vehicles. They are great on gas and will last you for a very long time. I have a 2005 Vue with almost 200k miles. It still runs brand new. Costs me about $23 to fill it up.

I like Saturns too, at least pre-2008 models, S, SLs, 1.8L, damn good engine.
