Update- 42K miles
By Mattpowl on
2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Throughout my Vue's life, I have had
lots of issues. The front end
suspension was replaced twice, fuel
gauge broke, and some interior plastic
delaminated. The wind-shield wiper
nozzles were replaced 3 times! On the
more major issues, the engine had a
weird problem with condensation in the
PCV valve hose that caused it to run
very poorly in the winter. Also, an
issue with the oil cooler cover gasket
that resulted in coolant leaks.
Although I like the vehicle's
performance and have had decent
customer service from dealer and Saturn
Corp (they gave me a 5-yr. 60K extended
warranty), I am very disappointed.
Driving comfort, power, winter
drivability (enhanced greatly with snow
tires), decent gas mileage.
