This is my second Saturn. My Vue has 97,000 miles on it and has only had one expensive problem. Other than tires/oil changes/routine maintenance the only problems have been a leak around the front passenger door (fixed by Saturn easily) and currently the gas gauge has stopped registering correctly. I have driven hundreds of miles in a day and been comfortable all the way. I am still getting 29 mi/gal highway and decent mileage on in town driving.
seating is very comfortable for me. The vehicle still looks good and gets great mileage. There is a lot of interior space for groceries, animals,auction items, whatever....I have been able to get through high snow drifts with minimal effort.
would be nice if the back seat would lay down flat. Also (for me) there is a large blind spot area.
