I purchased a 2004 Saturn Vue used in Oct. 2007 and in July 2009 the Transmission in the car went without any warning signs. I have kept up the maintenance on this vehicle since the purchase date and I am now having trouble with the extended warranty company and the Lease holder in repairing the vehicle.
Before the transmission went, I was satisfied with the overall performance of the vehicle and had not had any problems with it.
My next vehicle purchase I will do a little more homework on the vehicle iteself and the extended warranty companies.
