Pros

In the world of minivans, the Relay has a look all its own. Though it shares a common platform with other GM vans, we think the Relay is the best looking of the bunch. Priced competitively and loaded with standard features, the Relay makes a great alternative to the station wagon or SUV.

Cons

Though it can seat seven, the Relay's narrow design makes it a bit tight in the areas of hip and shoulder room. Like its cousins from Chevrolet and Buick, the Relay does not offer side-curtain airbags for third-row passengers or flush-folding seats.

What's New For 2007

For 2007, all Relays receive StabiliTrak stability control and a 3.9-liter V6 engine.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Expert Review

The Relay joined Saturn's line-up last year in an attempt to help keep growing families in Saturn vehicles. Based heavily on the standard GM minivan platform (think Chevrolet Uplander and Buick Terraza), the Relay gains a touch of Saturn sensibility with handsome European-like styling and a lovely, upscale interior. Short of owner loyalty, however, there is little about the Relay that makes it stand out in an already competitive field. The minivans from Honda and Toyota, for example, are newer designs that hold better resale values, while vans from Hyundai and Kia offer more interior space, more safety features, more standard equipment and a better standard warranty.

Driving the Used 2007 Saturn Relay

The Relay's 240-horsepower 3.9-liter V6 pulls strongly off the line and provides the low-end torque needed for passing and merging. The engine is smooth and silent, even at full throttle. The front-wheel-drive layout works well for this type of vehicle, providing good traction in rain and snow. Steering and braking have been greatly improved over the old Venture, Silhouette and Montana minivans on which the Relay is based. The smaller size and narrow footprint make the Relay feel easier to maneuver than the larger competitors from Nissan, Chrysler and Honda.

Favorite Features

Classy Interior
The elegant dash and door panel designs truly make the Relay feel special inside.

Optional Remote Start
The optional remote start lets you start the vehicle from as far away as 500 feet.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Interior

If all GM vehicles took their interior styling cues from the Relay team, the company would never hear another complaint about interior design and quality. French-stitched seams on the door panels and seats, a handsome dash and instrument cluster design and a hefty dose of sound-deadening insulation make life with the Relay anything but mundane.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Exterior

The Relay's long hood and added C-pillar are intended to make it look like an SUV. The sliding side doors betray the Relay's minivan origins, but overall the look is quite appealing. Saturn's grille, headlamp and wheel treatment are simple yet somewhat elegant and, in our opinion, work best with this shared GM platform.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Standard Features

The Relay 1 includes front air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), StabiliTrak stability control, traction control, power locks, power windows, dual sliding side doors, automatic headlamp control, AM/FM stereo with CD and MP3, tilt wheel and full wheel covers. The Relay 2 adds a rear defroster, rear air conditioning, overhead rail system, DVD entertainment, keyless entry, dual heated power mirrors, cruise control, rear wiper/washer and 17-inch wheels. The Relay 3 adds rear air conditioning, alarm system, garage door opener, second row captain's chair seating, six-way power driver's seat, front side-impact airbags and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with touch controls.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Options

Options include remote start, automatic level control, sport suspension, PhatNoise entertainment system, power sliding side doors, second-row side-impact airbags (Relay 3), heated leather seats and a Trailering Package.

Used 2007 Saturn Relay Engine

The standard 3.9-liter engine features variable valve timing, which helps improve torque at low speeds and fuel economy when cruising at higher speeds. Compared to the previous 3.5-liter engine, the new V6 is quieter, more refined and helps the Relay achieve horsepower and torque figures near the segment's class leaders.

3.9-liter V6
240 horsepower @ 5600 rpm
240 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/25

How Much Does the Used 2007 Saturn Relay Cost?

The Relay 1 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $22,210, while the Relay 2 is $24,415 and the Relay 3 is $28,500. A look at the Fair Purchase Price shows the typical transaction price being paid for the Relay in your area, so be sure to check it out before you begin negotiations. The Relay is projected to retain average residual values, better than the Kia Sedona, on par with the Ford Freestar and Dodge Grand Caravan, but well below the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna.

2005 Saturn Relay

"Best Saturn We've Ever Owned"

Useful, semi-luxurious, roomy, economical
Drive train and electronics iffy on occasion
We told our Saturn dealer years ago that we'd try a Minivan when they built one. We knew it was in the GM pipeline because of the Chevy Venture in their Minivan line. Traded a '98 Plymouth Grand Voyager in on it. Saturn turned out to be better, even though GVW was higher and size of vehicle slightly larger, as I remember. Only performance downside is that cruise control downshifts to climb hill on way home with Relay and the Voyager didn't (3.0 liter vs 3.8 liter). Gas mileage (for me) much better. I get over 20+ around town, and had one leg of a road trip with High Average Speed where my MPG was 28.3 with an avg speed of 64.5 mph! (100% gasoline, though, not ethanol blend). As a whole, family has liked Saturns, and wish GM hadn't dropped the Badge. One absolute downside is the way that the wheel sensors go out, have replaced 2 lefts and 1 right, with 55,000 miles on it. Another fail was that about 7.5 years in, the rear seat DVD-Entertainment center has electronic dementia. Turns on by itself, randomly, and will not play CD's or DVD's now.Read less

"Must be a dedicated Saturn lover to drive a Relay!"

I've owned my Relay for several years now and gotten to know most of the "bells & whistles" pretty well! The rear doors wont close half the time, but I've come to find out all I have to do is scrub the sensors with steel wool and the dinging stops! The ABS light will not go off; Even after the sensors have been replaced on three different occasions! These things drive my daughter wild, but I've just come to accept them as part of the personality of the Relay. Good things about it are we've never had any trouble from the engine or transmission. Runs like a top! Never have any trouble starting it, even in the coldest weather! Handles good on slick WV roads!Read less
