2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


My VUE is fun to drive and is thoughtfully designed for different uses. If it were not for the many repair issues in a new car, I would be Saturn's strongest supporter. In my first 2 yrs of ownership, my VUE has repeatedly been in the shop (fuel pump & sensors, radiator, windshield, side panel rattle, etc). Saturn seems to rarely fix an item on the first repair trip (1 fix took 4 times). A number of times, they broke one thing while fixing another. Corporate customer care was a waste of time.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Very responsive. V6 has great power. Grill guard & side step bars give an upscale look. Very roomy. Ease of entry. Very bright headlights & fog lights. Great stereo (for those in front seat only). Gold color looks great & hides dirt very nicely.

Worst Features

Sun visors that extend around the rear view mirror & have greater rotation to minimize sight obstruction. Rear seat to fold flat. Reduced engine noise. Honest gas mileage ratings (off by 1/3). Roomier glove box (owner's manual fills box).
