Not bad, but not for the long run
By Joe on


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


I broke one of my cardinal rules and
bought a new vehicle in its first model
year. I've paid for that. We've had the
standard '02 Vue problems (AC
condensation ruining the carpet on the
passenger side, rear wiper fluid
everywhere but on the glass) and a few
new ones (inaccurate fuel gauge-Shell
gas?) but overall it has been fairly
reliable. It's just too small for more
than 4 people, whether they are infants
or adults. Haven't tested the legedary
Saturn safety features (and hope I
don't have too) but can't help feeling
I paid too much for what I got.

Best Features

Safety, fuel economy, semi-resonsive dealership

Worst Features

Iron out the bugs and the 04s & 05s should see a great improvement in reliability.
