2002 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Where do I start. On my way to the airport the clutch went. Before and since it was fixed it is almost impossible at times to put into 1st gear, other times big problems shifting down to 2nd gear. Was informed that this was the way the car was designed, go figure. Air conditioning broke. Cap flew off windshield wiper fluid dispenser. Driver side door handle broke. Lid on console will never stay closed. There was a recall for something. Now it is in the shop once again to have the gear shift fixed also found out that not only does it need new brake pads but the rotors are rusted out and need replacing at a cost of $550. I dont want the car any more and am shopping around for a new one

Best Features

At this point I can't say I have any. I guess it does have good cargo room. However, I bought a new car for reliability what a joke. Was told all problems were minor and really not that much for a 3 year old car.

Worst Features

Don't make it anymore
