Review

I got this car in 2013 as a surprise since I was going to college the next year. I was extremely excited and absolutely loved it. It's been reliable and has never failed me 3 years later. I don't think I could trade this car because it has been good to me. My family loves it and my grandfather that owns many muscle cars and worked at a car dealership said it's a nice little vehicle. I live in Indiana so we get a lot of snow and this little car only being front wheel drive had done great, haven't gotten it stuck once. We drove through a foot of snow in it and it did very well, obviously you have to be cautious and make good choices with driving a two wheel drive in the snow but we did it. The car has great speakers, but I ended up getting a touch screen installed because I wanted to use the Bluetooth and not have to pay I star to talk through the car when I got a call. I do recommend getting a new radio installed because it looks great but the factory radio works very well also. Over all this car is everything I could've asked for especially being a college student.

2008 Saturn VUE SUV XE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased my Vue in 2010, and it had 56,000 miles on it. Here we are in 2015, and I now have over 245,000 miles on it.

I have been proactive in maintaining the car. Tuneups were done before required. Same with brakes. I used synthetic oil during the entire time I've had it.

The only unexpected repairs were:
1. Radiator (at 215K)
2. Transmission (at 245K)
3. Starter (at 247K)

I just put the car up for sale, but I have to say that I've read some bad reviews for this SUV, and I can only think that those people who've complained about it didn't take care of their cars. Too bad, it's a great car, as far as I'm concerned.


Best Features

Solid ride (no rattles), decent standard sound system


Worst Features

Now that it's no longer a Saturn Vue (it's a Chevy Captiva)I would suggest adding a little more leg room. I've average sized (6' tall), and I have to say that I felt a little cramped at times.
