The Relay joined Saturn's line-up last year in an attempt to help keep growing families in Saturn vehicles. Based heavily on the standard GM minivan platform (think Chevrolet Uplander and Buick Terraza), the Relay gains a touch of Saturn sensibility with handsome European-like styling and a lovely, upscale interior. Short of owner loyalty, however, there is little about the Relay that makes it stand out in an already competitive field. The minivans from Honda and Toyota, for example, are newer designs that hold better resale values, while vans from Hyundai and Kia offer more interior space, more safety features, more standard equipment and a better standard warranty.

"I bought this van brand new. After driving the first couple months, I kept having to take it back into the dealership for repairs. The bezel mechanism on the driver and passenger doors keep falling off. When they fall out the electronic devices don't work properly. I have had this van now for almost four years, I am still having to taking it in for this exact problem. Also, there is no room to get into the very back seats. I have grown to dislike this van greatly, but it has never given me any heartache with engine problems. All the problems I am having with this van are with the bells and whistles."

"Having read the posts, I must add my thoughts. Have been through the sliding door problems, traction-abs-sensors and tie rods, one set of brakes in 52300 mi., four, 1600 mi rnd trips to MB, SC and two 600 mi rnd trips to NH (this car climbed Mt. Washington). Yes, have gotten to know the dealer service people well, however, they go out of their way to ensure a fix, car in for service once overnight (part to be fedexed). routine servicing and asking a very reputable Saturn Service team to review all past issues and a general inspection at each regular oil change has helped keep us on the road! Understand the nay sayers, everycar has issues, parents with toyota sienna with problems since they got it (previous one was a charm, second sienna was a bust) so its just not saturn."
