2006 Saturn Relay 3 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


My 4th Saturn, I pulled a 3000 pound trailer from MD to AK via FL and AZ. Driven in 117 degree AZ and -23 degree AK. Always starts always works. Handles 12" fresh snow with no problem. Goes on ice, but doesn't like to stop or change direction, so go slow. Kids love the interior. Used the OnStar phone when we couldn't get cell signal in back country. I got 12 MPG towing 3000 lbs. I get 23 on mountain highway with no trailer and light load. 16 mpg in town. 14 mpg in snow in town. Continental tires were lousy. Have michelins now and they seem to be lasting well. Have had only one dealer needed repair and they covered it for free even though the warranty had expired by 2k miles.

Best Features

Data "computer" on dash. oil life system. Cruise control switch design. elec sliding door. back up sensors. Built-in garage door remote. OnStar. Cargo box in rear. Space behind third row holds wheel-chair. Emergency handling and antilock brakes. separate cd/dvd/ac/ backseat heat controls. Comfort.

Worst Features

Better rear window wiper and switch for it. Better access to third row seats.
