Make sure they are New

2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
5 time Saturn owner looking for a truck. Found a loaded '02 VUE off of a 3 year lease with 24K miles. Everything was great until 50K. Then it was new tires, brakes, cam positioning sensor, front strut mounts and a gremlin in the electrical system. 72K saw new catalytic converter, front strut bushings (sounded like there was a metal on metal grind from the front end, must have been the mounts again) and brakes, again. All covered under warranty. 85K saw new shocks, struts, tires, center support bearing for rear drive, 3 wheel bearings and to top it off a bad ECM! Truck was great when it ran. Solid power, stable and comfortable. Make sure you have a warranty. When it expires, dump it.
Styling, layout (not that bad), power, stability and traction w/awd
Actually designing a vehicle without planned failure. Too many times a tech saying "yeah that happens all the time".
