"Love my VUE Red Line with a 3.5 V6 Honda Engine that packs 70hp more than the GM equivalent. Think about passing and next thing you know, your out front. Careful about flashing lights in your mirror... a real threat. Very stable on the road. Only downside is replacing bearings too often for my taste. I won't lend it to the kids... they would kill themselves with a smile on their face."

Loved this car.

"This SUV has looked sharp and been incredibly dependable over the years of commuting on rough CA roads! Still going strong and paint looks brand new. About every 75K miles the brakes needed to be turned or replaced due to squeaking. With routine oil changes and TLC, brakes were the only service ever needed. So sorry that GM let Saturn go. Great cars! I may just go buy myself another lower-mileage VUE or the very cool looking SKY."

"Easy to maintain, minimal issues in the ten years that I've owned this vehicle. Had two other Saturn vehicles prior to his one. VERY sad when they sold out to GM and GM closed the line."

"Our relationship start from 125,000 about a little over than 3 years ago. She never let me down except for one time when her alternator conked out, maybe for the first time since her zero mileage. Not a high maintenance type with only about average 17 miles to a gallon on a cold day to about 19 on a warm one. Used her daily for work. Still kicks 90mph zippy. Overall, I will take care of and ride her until she doesn't want to."
