"I purchased this vehicle new in 2007. The car has not given me any problem. The only problem that I had was that I had to change the windshield washer pump motor. I am on my second set of tires. The first set lasted for only 22000 miles before I have to replace all 4. My around town MPG is 20 or better local and on the highway I have gotten up to 34 MPG. (It does have the V-6 engine and runs great. I wish is was still being made. I am very happy and satisfied with its performance over the 7 years that I have owned this vehicle. Would recommend this vehicle to anyone........."

"Great dependable Honda engine. Got all the bells & whistles on this car so it seemed more elegant. Very practical and dependable. Handled well in winter in mountains. Never had it break down. Brakes squeaked on occasion, then time to service them. Love the car and hate to move on."

"We bought this new in 2003, and it is still used practically every day. It is the wife's commuter vehicle. We use it for hauling supplies from the big box home improvement store - including bags of mulch, planting soil, gravel, lumber and more. We have had a trailer hitch installed and it has made a couple of trips (1400 miles round trip) hauling a loaded rental trailer. The only negative is slightly different driving dynamics because of the continuously variable transmission (CVT). It has a different feel from a geared automatic transmission. The CVT allows the engine to run more efficiently, though, which is a benefit. Unfortunately this is now an "orphan" product (Saturn no longer exists) so we will eventually have to replace it with something other than another VUE."

My Vue at La Pauruse Bay, Maui, Hawaii.

"Best vehicle that I have ever owned. Very reliable, low, low maintenance. Just keep up with oil and air filter changes and you are good to go! I bought a lifetime K & N Air Filter for my Vue. Only changed the timing belt and water pump at 122,000 miles, not because of problems, but because it is recommended at 100,000 miles. Only time I had problems, was when the battery I bought to replace the original had a defect, not because of any problems with the Vue, itself! Love my Saturn!!!"
