I bought my Saturn in 2004 after the vehicle depreciated in value. I paid around $15,000 and the car had 36k on it. I have had no major problems with it and like the vehicle a lot. I would recommend anyone buying this car wait a year or two and not buy new. I think the price of the car new is a little high. I had purchased a new 2004 Jeep Limited with leather before the Vue and it was the same price.
I really like how low to the ground the Vue sits. My 4 year old can get in and out by himself. I also like how the front seat folds down.
Make the arm rests more stable and make it rear wheel drive instead of front wheel. The front wheel drive slips around in the mud more and it just does not feel right.
