"2009 Vue XE V6 AWD. I bought (paid cash) this vehicle (when it was two years six months old) from auction with 65k miles on it, one previous owner. Now I have 78k miles on it. I use it as my primary vehicle. I'm a male, 41 years old, 6' tall and 220 lbs, seats are comfortable for me, seat height is perfect (for those that say different, there is a lever on the side to raise and lower the seat about 5" ,duh!). I frequently use this CUV to haul 4 full size adults and everyone seems to think it is roomy and comfortable (even in rear seats). Pulls my 19' runabout boat no problem every weekend (2750lbs). AWD works great. Excellent interstate handling, I usually do 78 mph and get constant 22.2 mpg on interstate (I drive Atlanta GA to Charlotte NC) and around town I get 20-21.5 mpg (mixed highway and city). I am NOT a GM fan (I know it says Saturn, but it is still a GM), but this CUV isn't bad. It has grown on me and I like it more the longer I own it. I have had minimal mechanical issues so far (As I said, I did buy it used at auction so some small things needed fixing: A/C refrigerent leak was my most expensive repair ~$100, other small repairs when bought were:12v supply fuse, wiper blades, light bulb, etc...) Had one small oil leak at timing chain cover gasket repaired by GM ($ was covered under 100k powertrain warranty). Not sure if I would have bought it new, but I got a great deal (50% NADA value) and I am very pleased with my purchase. My main complaints: The center console arm rest should be 4" forward for ultimate right elbow comfort, The center pillar (where the radio and A/C controls are housed) pokes my right knee in just the "WRONG" spot. Other than that, I am glad I bought this vehicle."
