"I bought my saturn vue at a dealership for 112,000 miles on it. My parents thought it was a terrible idea. We test drove the car and it had some shakyness to it and a thumping sound in the back but I loved it so I bought it for a low price. I drove it for a year and a half, got my regular oil changes and it was fine!Had to replace the wheel bearings in the back of the car. Also had to replace the exhaust system and it started to have some electrical issues and probably needed to get the exhaust fixed again at 125,000 miles but it was still driveable. It wasn't the best on gas but it wasn't the worst either! I had to get rid of it after I totaled it and I cried because I absolutely loved the car and was so sad to see it go!It could have drove probably for a couple more years! My neighbor has the same one with 160,000 miles on it! They last forever! I recommend it to anyone!"

"Bought my 2007 Vue AWD new, 6 cylinder, has always gotten 23 to 25 mph. Still runs perfectly with basic maintenance, battery, oil change, tires. Love it!"

"One of the best vehicles I ever bought. Great in bad weather with automatic AWD when computer realizes its needed, fun to drive, comfy on long trips, great gas mileage with the large Honda 4 cylinder and very peppy on take off if you need to move fast from a dead start or in traffic. Low maintenance. The only negative is if you use synthetic oil the computer makes the yellow service light come on after 3,000 miles. If you don't change the oil the cruse control shuts down and the computer will keep shutting down operations until you change your oil and filter. I tried to fool the computer and dropped the oil and filter and refilled it with the same ones and the don thing sensed it wasn't brand new oil. I just used a high grade of regular oil instead of wasting costly synthetic. I would recommend this small SUV to anyone. Its a shame Saturn is no longer manufactured."

"I think the Saturn Vue is one of the best vehicles ever made. I have had this SUV 9 years and never had a problem with it. Kept maintenance schedule and it has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever had. Since they decided not to make them any longer this is still a keeper. I have had 5 Saturns,"

Pros: "Rust resistant body panels"

Cons: "poor mileage for 4 cyl, deadly seats, air bag prob"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"When my timing chain broke without warning @170K I heard the sign that it was time to run way. I am told that this is a serious crash engine so I'm looking @ $1200 for a used engine. Passenger air bag light has been on for the last 100K but GM won't do anything about it. Seats are deadly uncomfortable. Eats brakes and tires. Lacks a PCV valve so condensation in crankcase is a problem. Plastic body parts were a plus here in the rust belt but of course that Idea was too good for them to keep. Bought a Ford escape f roughly same vintage. Much better ride"
