"I have a LOT of miles on my '04 Vue... 218xxx! Still in great condition, and still reliable. I LOVE the back-up sensor! The Vue is perfect for my family (myself, husband, 4 year old, Pit Bull & Rottweiler), as it has plenty of room, without being TOO big or tough on gas. This is the second Saturn I've owned, and I will continue to buy this make!"

Good solid car, Honda Pilot engine, mpg is good.

"I special ordered this Vue 04 in October 03. She's been the best car I've ever owned.Only problem I've had in 11 yrs was a broken serpentine belt. I would buy Saturn in a heartbeat. Sad that they stopped making them. Gone through two sets of tires but no real problems."

"I bought the 2004 VUE off lease with 40,000+ miles. It has 150,000 now. I had to put some money into it at 100,000 with recommended maintenance stuff; but honestly I wish I could find another one. We have the 5spd with FWD. It is a basic car and we have kept it well maintained. I would say it's probably not a car that would handle abuse or low maintenance very well. The best cheap urban buggy ever made."
