I drive for a living so a comfortable, quiet car with good gas mileage is a must. Overall I enjoy the Saturn Vue 2005. I definetely could use more storage space in front for pens, notes etc..Minimal storage for maps, tools etc.. that most would want to keep handy. Horrible in rain, slick roads. Good window view(s) which I always look for, due to blind spots. Gas mileage is avg. 0f 20mpg, so I'm not impressed. Overall a good car at a good price. So far no mechanical problems........

I purchased my '05 Vue back in May of this year, and I was overall impressed. I'm most impressed so far with the Gas Mileage with the V6 Engine, beating the Gas mileage i was getting with my '01 PT Cruiser (Not knocking the Cruiser, though). It does well on my daily commute to and from Illinois daily (I'm from Indiana). I didn't like how it handled in the rain (at first) with the Dueler Tires. I switched them to a slightly taller BF Goodrich Traction T/A. Now, not only is the ride more quiet, but a WHOLE lot smoother and a lot more stable. I do recommend the '05 V6 FWD Vue to anyone in need of Space, and Economy.

Most reliable / lowest maintenance car ever owned.

Bought new in Danbury, Connecticut. Tires lasted 45,000 to 50,000 mile before replacement. Changed oil and filter and that's about all. Rotors last about 40,000 miles before resurfacing due to hilly terrain. Amazing low maintenance cost. Vehicle gets 27-29 mpg on highway even after 100,000 miles. Replacable Cabin filter does an amazing job of keeping interior air clean. Not many cars have this feature. 5 speed is very peppy and this Vue handles like a sports car in the curves. Fold down seats make this vehicle very versatile. Fold down the front passenger seat and load 10' cargo. The front wheel drive makes this SUV very stable in slippery weather. Made it through many winter storms.

Best Car I've Owned

by from Nashville, TN on October 4, 2008

Had this car for two years. It's great! No problems, just change oil and drive. I just have to try and keep my wife away from it. The sound system is great.

I've owned a lot of cars and trucks but the Vue is both. As far as mantenace very little change the oil and rotate the tires that takes care of it. I'm getting right at 21 miles a gallon in city thats with a lite foot. On the highway Keep it under 65 and I've got as much as 29 mpg. With alittle work I've got a 10 foot table in with the back door closed. The V6 is very peppy and and the all wheel drive is just great in the snow.

I have owned this car for a couple of months , and so far I haven't had any major issues. There is a slight vibration in the back right but only when driving 25mph to 30mph then it stops? I need to have the 50,000 mile scheduled maintenance done and check to see if there are any recalls that need to be addressed. I purchased the Vue for the style and AWD feature , the mileage was low , and my daughter owns one and has never had any issues with hers. The motor run quiet and the overall ride is smooth. I didn't get to test the AWD this year because we didn't get much snow here in Southwest Ohio, but there's always next winter.

This truck started it's journey in Pennsylvania and drove cross country to Arizona. It's still on the road with 234K miles. It has had routine maintenance issues over the years. Nothing that hasn't been expected. I just had to purchase a new vehicle for daily use however, I will still be holding on to this one.

This is the 3rd Saturn I've owned. Have had SL1, SC2, and now a VUE. I've maintained them regularly, and they have served me well. I've recommended them to family and friends for reliability and have had good luck too. I have run across a people who haven't, but don't know how their cars have been maintained or bought from! One was from the dealer, and two practically new from GM employees. I LOVE MY SATURN's!!
