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


Overall, I like this vehicle. Don't like the tinny noise on the tailgate door. Sounds really cheap! Front end components feel flimsy but the steering is good. I have engine noise that sounds like a diesel but not as loud. Don't like the fact that you have to remove the intake system to do a tune up. Cost about double what most other cars would. Really dislike the transmission. Jerky, shifts to much, and passing gear puts the rpm through the roof, even when you just ease the throttle when passing. The AWD makes a loud terrible noise when it engages, but I understand thbat this is common. I think most of my complaints are minor compared to the overall performance of this vehicle.

Best Features

General appearance. Fuel economy.

Worst Features

Fix the AWD noise. Eliminate loose feel in front end components. Get rid of tinny tail gate.
