2004 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We purchased this used car while looking for a used minivan and just could not bring ourselves to admit we were in that stage of our life. So, Saturn Vue to the rescue. We really like this car and with the addition of the best tires we coud get, this car has met all of our needs. It drives great and compares nicely to minivans. The 3.5L V6 is very impressive and does good at the pump for an SUV. 20 to 24 in mixed driving. got 28 once on a long interstate only trip. Hit a deer once and was very happy my famly was in this car. Damage was one headlight to replace. What a relief! Safety and value. Seems to perform better than SUVs and minivans in its price range, without giving up much.
Feels cool on the inside, smooth ride, plenty of space in every direction, good mileage for the power and size. No maintance costs as of 77k. The black trim at the bottom realy looks good.
None I can think of, other than one squeek in the back that goes away in the summer but comes back in the winter. Gets annoying.
