A V6 hybrid model using GM's 2-Mode Hybrid drive will arrive in 2009, becoming the second hybrid model in the Vue lineup. Saturn has dropped the Green Line name and now simply calls its hybrid the Vue Hybrid. New features on all Vue trims include standard Panic Brake Assist, available Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and OnStar 7.2 with Directions and Connections download direct to navigation screen.
Launched in model year 1991, the Saturn brand was conceived by GM to lure away lucrative import shoppers. Nineteen years later, there finally is an entire lineup capable of doing just that. The 2009 Saturn Vue, and its high-mileage offspring the Vue Hybrid, is the fourth of five recently added vehicles that have totally reformed Saturn's showroom floor in a relatively short time span. The Vue's bold styling and rich interior might represent key victories in the battle for the hearts and minds of the buyers that have made the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 best sellers in one of the hottest segments in the market.

"I own a 09' redline and have had ZERO problems! I bought this car because I used to fix them. I was a Saturn tech in Jacksonville, FL for the last 4 years (I had to quit working on cars due to medical reasons). Let me start by saying DO NOT BUY THE 4CYL MODELS!! The vehicle is too heavy and under powered! Same goes for the HYBRID, if you want your car in the shop 24/7 then buy the HYBRID! OK now that that’s out of the way! The XR and Redline with the 3.6L V6 is GREAT! The first thing you should do when you take it in for service the first time is ask if there are any SERVICE BULLITINS THAT PERTAIN TO YOUR VEHICLE. This should clear up most of the problems from the factory. once this is done, the only problems that we see are with the radios and A/C control heads. The radio problems are a hit and miss and are a problem with the radio head itself and can only be replaced as a unit. The A/C control head problem has been resolved and the new control head that will be installed has no known problems. That’s really it! One last thing, install aftermarket accessories at your own risk! They can cause electrical faults, noise, water entry into the cabin, and ultimately ruin your vehicle!"

"I L-O-V-E, LOVE my new 2008 Saturn Vue XE. I was worried at first about the poor ratings with the 4 cylinder model, but I can honestly say that those fears are un-founded...or at least not that big of a deal! I took my Vue on a road trip down the east coast 3 days after purchasing the car and so got to know the car very quickly! The revving up of the RPM's as the Vue went to get up to speed on the highway was quickly corrected by my husband who's driven 4 cylinder cars his whole life--me, I was a 6 cylinder junkie from the day I got my license. Once I figured out how to let the gas off when going up a hill just enough to force the gear shift, then continuing to accelerate in the lower RPM's, it was smooth sailing--even through those fun hills in the Shenandoah Valley! And the best part of my new Vue--waaaaaay better gas mileage than my old 6 cylinder SUV!!! Thank you Saturn for the Vue, it's been a car I've wanted for a while and the 2008 has quickly become my bestest friend! :)"

"I bought the 2008 Saturn Vue (4cly) in August. My first American car in 10 years. My first new car in 20. Driving around town is fine; acceleration is good and it drives very well in snow. But on the highway, its terrible with a capital T. DO NOT buy the 4 cylinder if you do a lot of highway driving. It plays the 'little train that could' every 30 seconds -- revving from to 4kRPM from 2k, or to 6k from 3k RPMs with annoying, loud frequency. Its so bad that sometimes I feel like the car will lose control. The gas mileage is not great. I get 22MPG, so its not worth the lost performance. Also if you plan to install ANY rack system get the factory installed rails. there is NO after market solution for a non-rail platform. I have tried to trade the car in for the 6cylinder but the dealer has not given me a good enough deal to bite. I test drove the 6 at its excellent."
