It's a LEMON! No Joke!

2008 Saturn VUE Hybrid Green Line 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)

Review

16K miles in and it's my 4th trip to the dealership to the address the Fuel Economy issue. A hybrid that can't get more than 18 MPG in the city???!!! It's a Joke! Here is why... GM Hybrid technology is faulty. Ford got theirs from Toyota and the Escape gets 30 MPG (my neighbor has one) that's not a Joke. Maybe it's because it's a Mild Hybrid and GM never got to the full hybrid or plug in as expected.

Favorite Features

Loved the exterior and when people turned to admire the car, then I told them the MPG and they laughed. Less box shaped than the Escape, but the mileage shadows all the good features.

Suggested Improvements

Get Hybrid technology like Fords, which Toyota has Perfected is willing to share. More power.
