So Far, So Good
By Kansas City Driver on
2002 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
The Saturn VUE with 4 cy., 5 speed is
an excellent vehicle, looks great and
makes you feel good driving it.
Steering is sharp and precise and the
suspension gives you good road feel
with no shakes or pounding. Four cyl.
has adequate power. Little slow in
first and reverse, but good surge in
second and third. Had not really
planned on buying one, but saw it and
when the salesman explained the special
offer with options could not say no.
Right at $17K loaded. Few minor
distractions, but no big deal. I would
recommend it to anyone looking for a
small SUV. Best looking one out there.
Good looks and understated. Five speed
is fun to drive. A comfortable SUV to
AC air coming out of the center vents
sounds restricted (loud hissing).
Driver's right knee rubs the console.
Seat cloth on this version is nothing
to write home about. Little too much
wind noise on the highway (60 mph +).
