2004 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased this car 4 months ago used and now am experiencing issues with it. It was shaking back and fourth.... stop and go traffic was horrifying because I was afraid the rpms were going to drop and the car would shut off. Also the car had extremely poor pick up and when I would come to a stop the car would occasionally not go when I put my foot on the gas and then it would take off and sound like someone hit me from behind. Don't purchase this car better yet just get a bike...

Best Features

I personally liked the inside look more then anything. Other than that I originally liked that it runed considering my last car experienced A LOT of transmission issues...

Worst Features

Don't buy a CVT automatic Saturn VUE :( or a Chrysler Sebring

it's the CVT that's the problem Nissan Altima and Maxima had them, call it a transmission never tested before going on the market.
