Too bad for me!

2003 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl CVT)


I bought this car new in 2003, and was very happy with it for the first six or seven years.
I am now holding my breath because I have the infamous CVT tranny.
I have less than 65,000 miles on it, but won't drive it out of town for fear that the tranny will fail.
I am amazed at the number of people who have bought this car in the last year or two.
Any amount of research would have revealed the issue and the 2007 class-action suit filed against Saturn.
The judgement was against them, and they were told to cover 100% of repair/replacement costs.
Since GM filed bankruptcy, they have weaseled out of that and will only cover half.
Half of over $7500 is waaay too much!

Best Features

Great in snow, and before the problems, loved the smooth acceleration of the VTI. I believe any version with a conventional tranny would be a good buy.

Worst Features

Ditch the tranny!
