2004 Saturn VUE AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


The 2004 VUE has held up well over the 3+ years we have had it. (69k on it in 39 months) No major complaints other than Saturn reneging on a warranty repair to the radio (it would not keep time) earlier this year. The '04 has a Honda engine - about the only reason we haven't traded it in given our other difficulties with Saturn of late. Rear seat legroom is a bit cramped in the VUE. The audio system (6-disc in-dash changer) is a good one, and the original tires held up a full 60k before being replaced. It could use more than the front airbags, and the rear drum brakes, even though ABS, are a drawback as well.

Best Features

The 60/40 split in the rear seat, the heated front seats. The leather seats in containing infant and toddler spills.

Worst Features

Add more 12v outlets, such as in the cargo area. Rear disc brakes. 100k mile warranty.
