2002 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this car brand new, love the dealer hate the quality of the Vue. Here are just a few of the problems I've had over the years. Struts went bad at 500 miles, car had to be towed at 1000 miles would not start burrs in the fuel rail bad abs the breaks stink, both O2 sensors are bad, crank case sensor went bad, gas guage works when it feels like it same with turn signals. Engine control module went out when driving 70 mph lost all control of everything including power breaks and steering. My wife was locked in the car not once but twice (how is that possible)? Car lost all power while driving in Atlanta on way to Florida, went to dealer was charged $85 for bad connection happened again.

Best Features

Not killing me on the highway, happy when car doesn't break down. I don't have the heart to sell it to someone knowing what a pile of garbage it is.

Worst Features

New electrical system use Delphi not Yazaki
