"The four cylinder 2.2l engine is a bit under powered with passengers in all four seats. The AWD (always on) is awesome in the snow. I never have to dig it out. I just start and go. It's very good on gas as a daily driver. Mine has Fog lights and a Sunroof, thus making it a nice ,decent every day driver."

Very Safe and Reliable Family Vehicle.

"Absolutely love this vehicle. Bought it used with 36,900 miles on it in 2006. Paide 10,999 for it. Worth every penny and then some. Has been reliable, good on gas, good in snow and rain. I have no complaints at all. I would buy another new one...if they were available."

"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."

"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."
