Reliable and Safe
By wgpenguin on
2003 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Vue used in 2004 with 16,000 miles.
I have had a couple of big things go wrong (transmission control module, water pump), but that's to be expected in a 9 year old, lower end car.
I bought an after market extended warranty for $1,500 that is still in effect even now, and it's been worth it.
I now have over 120,000 miles on it and I still feel like it's very reliable.
My sister in law also had one - rolled it 9.5 times on the interstate and walked away with just bumps and bruises.
It's the perfect size!
I can park it in any space without a problem, yet can fit just about anything I want in the cargo area with the seats folded down - even a full size bicycle.
Small on the outside, yet roomy on the inside.
Wish the fold down seats folded flat - they sit at a slight incline when folded down.
Also would like to see rear AC vent - takes a few minutes for the back seat to feel AC.
Noisy ride - lots of road noise seeps in.
