Vehicle2004 Saturn VUE Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI was surprised to read so many negative reviews about the Vue both from owners and the press. Bought new (w/ heavy incentives) for <$20k & owned for 4 years. No service issues at all, other than rear suspension recall. I avg. 20 mpg city & 26-28 mpg hwy. Pros: crisp exterior styling, 17" wheels, roomy/comfortable interior, agile handling, excellent power, dent- resistant polymer panels, great fuel economy, buttery-smooth Honda engine/transmission Cons: cheap-looking interior, wind/road noise, sometimes bouncy ride, a few squeaks & rattles, lots of nooks & crannies make washing a pain All in all, it's been a great car nimble yet roomy, fun-to-drive, and economical.
Best FeaturesPower & economy of the Honda V6 engine, looks sharp w/spoiler & 17" wheels, comfortable on long trips, great seating position, nice tidy size vehicle
Worst FeaturesBetter window mouldings/trim to help with wind noise, electric power steering has no "feel" & slow reaction in panic situations. Tires were a low- point, had to replace after reaching the wear-bars at 23k miles! 4-wheel disk brakes would be nice
