2006 Saturn Relay Minivan 3 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

MOST RECENT problem: from being PARKED with engine running, car slid into REVERSE, rolled downhill, knocked me over twice and hit my neighbor's tree (better than the house)! Add to that problems we've had since we bought it new: both sliding doors sometimes won't close; the dash lights flicker; the a/c goes out and we have to move the knob to heat and back to get cool air again; a/c only blows cool when we're actually rolling; "ABS disengaged" light comes on all the time; full brake replacement at 50K miles; radio changes station when braking suddenly; dead spot in accelerating from a stop; gas reads empty on incline even when 1/4 full; back wiper doesn't move; hard to get into 3rd row.


Favorite Features

OnStar; DVD player


Suggested Improvements

give me a vehicle that actually works

Review

Not really but not far off. I had this thing in the shop four times while it was under warranty for an annoying popping/clicking noise in the front end. Each time they said they had it fixed and alas, it is now out of warranty and still pops.Oh, and the service engine light came on about 2000 miles after warranty expired. The computer code shows the catalytic converter is not functioning properly. Now my transmission is slipping horribly. Fluid is clean and has always been full. This van has not been driven hard or fast. It is simply a lemon and from looking at the other reviews, it is not alone in it's misery.


Favorite Features

Seats are quite comfy. the removable rear storage compartment was a nice touch


Suggested Improvements

It is a little late for that now isn't it? seeing as how they stopped making it.

This was the best van I ever owened. I had one problem with one of the doors, it wouldnt close sometimes. The gas mileage wasnt to good but other than that the kids and I loved it.


Favorite Features

We loved the DVD player, CD player and how it was just enough room for us and the color(green).


Suggested Improvements

They could have improved the gas mileage.

Review

We have had our vehicle in the shop 5 times now for the ABS Trac light issue. Everytime, "I think we got it this time, must have been a short", or "Faulty wiring, we replaced it". It just seems funny that this issue happened right at the time the warranty went out.


Favorite Features

Color, Size, DVD player, AC cools the car very well.


Suggested Improvements

Electrical (apparently?)

Review

Like many others, our Relay has been in for repairs numerous times. From the beginning it doesn't want to start at times. Now that warranty is expired they found problem. Imagine that! We don't have the problem with the molding like others, but it has been in for the brakes, sway bar, rear upper light, back seat pull broke, air vent broke (all plastic on it is cheap) shortly after purchase. Gets better gas mileage than others reported, but we set cruise at 65mph. Hwy mpg is about 28-30. Seats are difficult to get out. Otherwise, it's a good vehicle.


Favorite Features

DVD player keeps the kids quiet on long trips. Handles well in snow. Onboard display (oil life, etc.) is nice to have. SUV look.


Suggested Improvements

They can't improve it because they quit making this model. Not surprised about that.
