2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Unlike the title says, this is the FWD,
Anyway, acceleration is very quick, not
torquey but still quick. The engine
approaches the red line very quickly
(7000 rpm). The speed can be deceiving,
when going 50 it feels like about 30.
Braking is good, since it is such a
light vehicle. The car handles
beautifully, without much sway at all.
It feels stable at all time. I was
especially surprised by the ride, it
was very smooth, much smoother than i
was expecting. Back seat space is very
limited, people over 6 feet would have
problems sitting in the back.
The dent proof door panels. I hit them
as hard as I could and they look
perfect. I like that it gets to
operating temperature very fast, since
it is really cold here. The engine has
a great sound, and the engine feels
very powerful with the 5 speed
Well, i am used to driving better cars
than this (like pontiacs and caddys),
but there isnt too much that needs
improved upon. 1 thing I noted is that
there is a quite a bit of engine noise
when you get up past 4000 rpms, but I
personally like that.
