2005 Saturn Relay Minivan 3 Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car has been reliable and comfortable. I have nearly 82,000 miles on this car and other than replacing the rear wiper motor (after warranty), the car has only needed normal wear and tear service.


Favorite Features

I think the Relay has a nice design, has good pick-up, and gives a comfortable ride.


Suggested Improvements

I guess it's the weight of the vehicle that seems to keep my tires in constant need of air. Other than that I don't really have complaints.

2005 Saturn Relay Minivan 2 Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have 2 powered doors and have had nothing but problems with them. They have opened while driving 75mph down the highway and GM is refusing to fix them even though we have a 16 page detailed service report of these on going problems. Put the doors aside and the other issues we have had with this very expensive vehicle and it is a great ride. It is a very comfortable and smooth ride. But I will never buy another GM vehicle again, we were sold a lemon of a vehicle and GM just tells us too bad. Hopefully not everyone is having the same problems we are. But I would not recommend buying this vehicle to anyone. The dvd screen is way too small for the kids to see it good from in back.


Suggested Improvements

They did stop making these vehicles because of the major issues they are having with the doors coming open while driving.

2005 Saturn Relay Minivan 3 AWD 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Great Minivan. Almost no problems. Fun to drive, easy to drive. Have problems occasionally with the power sliding doors, and the rear windshield wiper also stopped working. Makes a "Groaning" sound when making sharp or tight turns.


Favorite Features

DVD Player Power Seats Power Sliding Doors All Wheel Drive


Suggested Improvements

Power Sliding Doors get stuck sometimes. Rear Wiper stopped working.

Review

Bought the car because we had our third child and I'm really happy with it. I enjoy driving it and it is very reliable the only time it never started was when i left the radio on (my mistake). Had to replace the hub and bearing at 75,000. It does have trouble with stalling my mechanic told me what the problem was something with the electric fuel something with aftermarket part still on the expensive side but if you give it a little gas when you start it. Yes i know it's not ideal but for what i paid for it. I guess i got one of the good ones. Look, it's not a Lincoln or Mercedes you do get what you pay for stop complaining and get a more expensive car if you want perfection.


Favorite Features

dvd comes standard, room, the sporty look of the van. room. It's very sturdy but i keep it clean and maintained with oil changes and simonizing gotta take care of your car so it can take care of you!


Suggested Improvements

Dimming of dash lights, fix starting problems, you could always refine it but for the money i cant complain. Everybody sorry if you got a lemon love mine.

2005 Saturn Relay Minivan 3 AWD 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have now over 100k miles with no problems. Excellent van that does everything right, everything is still in perfect working order and exterior and interior still looks brand new with no inside garaging. This is my 5th Saturn vehicle and I have had no problems with any of them and I have had all models. Love this car. Stuck in a southern California blizzard once and this car was the only one able to negotiate the freeway safely and did so well I felt like I was driving under normal conditions. Also, really liked the buying experience with Saturn and all the service experiences. This car was very stress free to own


Favorite Features

onstar, wireless dvd, satellite stereo, heated seats, sliding doors, remote start, can move tons of equipment, rear back up alarm


Suggested Improvements

my only complaint is the cost to replace the brakes pads, but they did last 60k
