by maojr on Sep 18, 2012 Vehicle: 2005 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car for my wife because, (1) it has a plactic outer shell and never get's dimpled (2) supposedly it has a Honda Engine. It also had a 0.5% interest on the loan...what a deal.
It's just now giving some problems. Had to replace the middle drive-shaft support and spider bearing. Otherwise no major problems/issues after 120K miles. This is the first signs of major ware so I expect a little at a time as the mileage increases with more use. We use this car every day! I would buy/trade another with the same features....too bad they are no longer available.

I bought my Vue with 60k miles from a private seller for $2k due to a Salvage Title. I was a little hesitant going into it but since it was so cheap I figured why not.
I've had the car 2 years and it is now nearing 90k miles and I have absolutely NO problems with it whatsoever. I've never had anything go out/stop working on me. The car has never stalled or done anything suspect. It needs brakes/rotors right now, that's about it.
I'm pretty impressed considering the salvage title, not to mention I was in a major accident with it about a year ago also....runs as if nothing happened even though it's had the crap kicked out of it.

I purchased my VUE in July of 05.
I was driving one day in the city and notice I had no acceleration to go.
I notice that a light came on so I pulled over to check the owners manual and it said the sensor reduction light was one.
So I did what it said to do and when I turned my car back on, it ran okay.
I took it to the Saturn dealer and they told me it could be either the gas pedal or my wiring harness.
So we replaced my gas pedal..drove it home and not even w/in 24 hrs it did it again.
I called the dealeship again and they said its the wiring harness and that was going to be $700...has anyone had problems w/ their sensor reduction?
Looking for help..Not sure I trust this dealer..
Revised interior and exterior trim details freshen up the interior of Saturn's SUV. Four-cylinder models get new machined alloy wheels in place of last year's painted alloys, along with new seat fabric, and a four-speed automatic transmission in place of the former CVT unit. All-wheel drive is no longer available on four-cylinder Vues.
