i am a new saturn owner and i am
impressed with the power of the 4 cyl.
i travel to and from the mountains in
pa at least twice a week and i like the
comfort and the pickup. i am very happy
with the gas mileage
I've got about 5K miles on my VUE and
it seems like the best deal for the
money. Lots of space with gas mileage
you can deal with. I was going to get
the ION but with the VUE deal at the
time, it was actually cheaper to get a
VUE than a similarly equipped ION. I
have NO complaints as of now. We'll see
how the next few years go. Not to
mention that Saturn makes buying a car
so easy and hassle free that its SCARY!
I would probably get something else at
the upper levels (AWD, V6, Redline
packages) but at the VUE FWD 5M level,
you can't beat it.
Manual Transaxle in an SUV, power
package at a low price, fuel economy,
fold down seats, respectably stylish
The steering is sloppy during quick
acceleration from the start and at
speeds 75+ (Yes, I'm speeding...so sue
Purchased on 5/08/04 after having driven
Saturn L300 for 30 months and finding
to be in need of 4 or all wheel drive.
Made a trip to San Antonio, Texas
driving almosts 2,000 enjoyable miles.
Vehicle has plenty of power, handles
well in both city and on highway.
The XM sattelite radio is a superb
addition. On Star is great; although
found the instructions to be sparse.
Its use as a telephone is helpful but
found several spots wher coverage was
Saturn needs to improve interior
appearance and to get rid of manual
controls of heating and cooling system.
Dealing with Saturn is a pleasure. One
price nation wide is great concept. Easy
to work out trade.
Leather seats. Electric driver's seat.
Spare tire storage. Sporty apparance.
Tone of available colors. Gas mileage
better than anticpated. Ground
clearance. The addition of the Honda
engine makes this vehicle one of the
Electronic controls for heating and
cooling system. Utilize space under
shift lever for storage as is done in
Buick SUV. Sliding rear seat would be
helpful. Add factory installed cargo
cover as standard. Brighten up interior.
