2005 Saturn Relay 3 Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


The Saturn view really doesn't look like a minivan which I consider a plus. There are lots of nice features on our Relay 3 which make driving it a joy. It sits up high for good view with other high profile vehicles. The biggest complaint I have after driving it 1,000 miles is the overhead rack system. It's supposed to be convenient storage but the DVD player rattles unmercifully. If it's cold outside it's almost unbearable. Either Saturn is going to have to do something to correct this oversight or they're going to have a lot of them in the shop with unhappy customers. I know ours will be in the shop until they make it stop. Otherwise it's a great vehicle.

Best Features

Exterior appearance. lots of power features. drives well. good gas milage for a larger vehicle. Seats 6 comfortably and 7 if necessary. Ample storage space if the back seat is folded down. Lot's of storage space if all the seats are removed. Wireless head sets for watching the DVD player.

Worst Features

Get rid of the overhead rack system. It's a great for allowing the add on compartments to rattle, even on smooth surfaces. It's a great idea in principle but a bad idea in reality. It is the worst feature of any car I've ever driven.
