The Mid Size SUV that Can
By bikerbernie on


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


Price outstanding value for a family
OEM tires are terrible (Bridgestone
Dueler H/T 215/70 16)
Great in WNY snow better tires would
improve traction
Roomiest behind the wheel over (GM) P/U
trucks vans etc for my 6’1” 300lb body
Horn is hard for wife to operate much
pressure needed esp. in colder weather
Window washers were r&r’ed because the
nozzles pop out while in use
A friends & my Vue blew front wheel
bearings after our first tire rotation
Dealer fixed problems under warrantee
addressed every concern head on &
Best I have been treated by any dealer
I would return
20000 mi later family is very happy
with the vehicle

Best Features

Sun roof 5M FWD 100% more pep than 1000 lb lighter Cavalier Not for off road but it handles steep cinder & dirt grades & highway high speed curves & turns with great stability (drives wife nuts and makes kids laugh) Gas mileage outstanding 30mpg highway loaded Stereo

Worst Features

3rd row seat when use to a 9 pass Roadmaster 5 pass is quite an adjustment bring back the burnt orange color Make an AWD or 4WD in the 5M model Despite other reviews the 4cyl engine is very quiet except on very hard accelerations this should be very small percentage of the time
