2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My VUE has been in the shop for warranty work 9 times in a year and a half. The SES light comes on every two months for, miraculously, never quite the same thing twice so I could not declare it a lemon. And now with less then 2 years, the paint is chipping. Plus, the dealer will not support a loaner car on my brand new SUV.


Best Features

Comfortable seating, roomy and great for cargo.


Worst Features

Overall quality control improvements required at Saturn. This is my third and will never own another Saturn.

2002 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My 2 yr old Vue has been into the shop for many problems: the AC leaked into the interior, (I was told this was normal), the breaks sqeek, (again, normal), I need to double shift to get the car into 1st, (again, normal), the front struts needs replacing, and finally the ceiling fabric and lights came crashing down after the dealership screwed that up. This not including the 12 times we have been back to the dealership after they either scratched the paint, floor boards, and radio or got grease on the seats. Finally, Saturn doesn't want to be bothered once you purchase the car. I'll never by another GM, let alone another Saturn.


Best Features

Style...I'll give Saturn that. Fuel economy is pretty good for an SUV.


Worst Features

Gear shift is very unreliable, front struts and breaks, horn is almost impossible to find, fit and finish of interior, Saturn Corp. need to be more responsive.

2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I was one of the first VUE owners in St. Louis. It was not my first Saturn and won't be my last. They have always proved to be reliable, well built and practical, yet fun to drive. For an SUV it gets good milage and has been maintance free other than the standard maintenance. The polimer panels are great and require nothing. The body is well finished and appointed. It was and is a good value.


Best Features

I like the interior room and ease to get in and out of.


Worst Features

I would prefer having the accellerator pedal moved slightly to the left, away from the center console to alow more right leg room.

2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

A great suv for a small family. I live in northern Maine and the vehicle has worked flawlessly. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a compact suv with real world usefullness. I owned a 01 RAV4 prior to the VUE. The VUE is alot more usefull and alot tougher suv than the RAV every was!!


Best Features

Plastic seat back on passenger seat. Easy to clean up versus cloth. Gas mileage. Flat rear passenger floor. All wheel drive works great in long snowy winters we have here in Northern ME.


Worst Features

Smoother engine and a few less rattles.
