"Bought the Vue brand new. I have enjoyed every minute of driving this car. It has the get up and go I want ( 250 HP), is easy to pull in and out of parking spaces, has good visibility and has never let me down. I recently purchased a 2015 vehicle, only because I felt I needed to, however, I continue to leave the new one in the garage and drive the Vue!!!"
"Had vehicle since 0 miles so since early 2006 all 133000 miles from me. Have had no major repairs on vehicle other than routine maintenance, fluids,brakes n tires. One recall over the life of vehicle for transmission shifting issue(automatic, computer issue) Honda v6 engine best decision made to go with over under powered four cylinder. Only issue as of late is rear wiper has mind of its own sometimes, lol."
Pros: "Love the car wish it had a dependable transmission"
Cons: "The CVT tranny"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"Never buy a car (like this one )that has a CVT transmission in it. Transmissions shops wont touch them with a ten foot pole and yes I have a 3 yr warranty but I'm on my 4th one and each one is lasting an average of 10,000 miles then they go out.The transmission guys say the CVT isn't meant for cars but snowmobiles which you don't drive as much. Even though I had a warranty this last time I had to threaten a Law Suit to get them to fix it cause they didn't want to honor it after already replacing 3."
Pros: "Dependable. Never given me a lick of trouble."
Cons: "Getting tired of driving a stick."

"This car has been a tremendous partner for the last 13 years. She has never given me any problems. Many many original parts just keep going on and on and on. Just replaced the battery two months ago. If they still made these cars I would buy one again in a heartbeat."
"i bought this car when my son was on the way. My ion couldnt fit two kiddos. It has been a love story ever since! We have a naming scheme for the lovelies and we named this Vue "Enceladus" since he is white and seemed to be a no brainer :)
This guy has paid us back for himself more times over and has been the most reliable vehicle we have ever owned. He's up there in miles and age but we have no plans to ever let this guy go!
He has recently been hit by two speeding deer within a weeks's time in the exact same spot and only has a small tear at the front right wheel well and deer butt hair stick between the panelling at the rear right wheel well. Mechanically he is solid and everything works as well as day 1.
The fuel economy is better than the specs indicate. I get around 27 - 29 mpg highway and probably about 22 mpg city. My range for highway would be more accurate since my driving is rural or highway (nothing is close by).
I will say this, to keep the beat economy and life for your older saturns (high miles or actual age) is to keep synthetic running in it. I had a 1996 Sc1 that ran to 315,000 when i traded him in for my Ion and still had a lot of life left in him. That one was put in the saturn hall of fame at the dealership :D
Nothing but pure love for this guy, Enceladus, and i will brag on him til i live no more! ;)
Do yourself a favor and buy you one! You will NEVER regret it!"
