I have a 2007 Saturn Vue 2.4L that the timing belt broke and caused my engine to fail.
I am now looking at a $4000 repair bill. GM knew about this engine and the timing belt issues and still has refused to do anything about it.
States have tried to get a recalls, however, GM has fought the issue.
My engine blew going down the hwy. How safe is that.
GM shame on you!
I am embarrassed to be a granddaughter of a GM dealer for over 60 years.
Never again will I or my family buy GM!
2007 Saturn VUE Green Line 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)
Fifty thousand miles and never a problem. Gets routine maintenance as directed in the manual. My lifetime average for both city and highway driving is 24.5MPG. Great for a SUV!
This car has been one of my favorite cars. I mostly drive it in the city, but have taken it on long and short trips. I love the hybrid features, such as shutting down the engine at stops and battery-assisted acceleration. height adjusting drivers seat.
Overall I really like the car.
The Honday V6 has plenty of power yet gets great mileage.
A dependable car, but more suited for smaller people. Great for around town or short trips (3 hours).
Again, probably more comfortable for smaller people.
It's compact, interior space is decent, seats somewhat small.
Good features, everything within reach for driver.
Moderate road noise, car has a few interior noises mostly caused by plastic folding cargo box in back. Recommend for second family vehicle with small children or older couple. Not ideal for large people.
Great mileage, handles well in traffic and parking. Cozy, lots of power, good asthetics. Dependable Honda engine/transmission. Low maintenance.
Accomodations for child safety seats.
Folding cargo tray in back needs noise dampening/anti-vibration.
Slightly larger front seats.
Rear seats lack support.
I bought this vehicle new. I have had few problems with it. Ignition coil and (as a result) catalytic converter went out at about 90,000 miles. A/C developed leak at about 100k miles. No other problems. This has been a comfortable and reliable vehicle that I never hesitate to take on long trips. Cargo space is excellent. Comfort for driver and passengers is excellent. Styling is acceptable. Handling is good for a small SUV. Gas mileage is excellent, as I average about 26-27 miles per gallon. Has 125,000 miles and has shown no signs of wear on 4-cyl engine, which is very adequate mated to the 5-speed manual transmission. All things considered, this has been an overall excellent vehicle.
