Good car, but...

I bought this car as a Hail Mary and as a certified pre-owned. I bought it 3 years ago at 86k miles on it, I thought I got a deal. It’s a good car, got me to a to b without too much trouble, but... Two years ago I had some transmission issues Last year it was the front bearings This year I had to replace the brakes, bearings, tires and an alternator and belt. Granted I bought it at 86k and currently has 175k but after just replacing the alternator it worked fine for a few days and now it’s dead, it’s like casting the resurrection spell for it to turn on again. If you need a reliable vehicle I wouldn’t choose Chevy/GMC products again, seems like I have to replace used cars every 4 years.

Lemon

I have put so much money for repairs that it makes it impossible for Resale value. I purchased it used from champion Chevy motors in Howell Michigan. They gave me a 30 day warranty and the week following the 30 days I had to get a new transmission installed. After that I needed another engine and every three months I am putting in an average of $400 to keep it running. Worst gas mileage around 12 miles per gallon, still poor for a V6 AWD. Champion Chevy dealer Would not work with me Concluding a poor dealership and poor valued transportation means.

Decent Car

My Saturn was an alright car! The gas was ok for being an suv, it offered lots of storage, and was spacious (which is a huge deal because I’m 5’10, my boyfriend is 6’5 and we have a Great Dane😂). Even with very routine maintenance, it seemed as though the transmission slipped a bit while in 5th gear and the tire pressure sensors went out a week after I had al 4 replaced. If you’re ok with those issues and you’re able to fix them without issues, this could be an awesome car for you.

2009 Saturn VUE still looks new and in style!!!

I wish Saturn was still in business 🥺 I have a 2002 Saturn L200 with 83,000 miles and the VUE with 54,000 miles. They both look and run great. Best cars ever!!! I would have bought another one but since no longer made I opted for a Subaru. Hope it turns out to be as good as they are......,

My heart hurts that Saturn is no more

Saturns were always the best cars for me and my wife. We owned 8 of them in total, not all at the same time of course. When we needed a cheap car, under 5k, I was delighted to find this 2009 Saturn Vue. It is solid, rides better than my Mazda CX-5, can carry more too. My only complaint isn't really a valid one. The car I bought has the 4 cylinder engine and it's just not powerful enough for my tastes. I always had 6 cylinder engines when I bought before. But in the used car market, you can't really choose your engine. Even so, it's still got enough power for pretty much everything but a quick dash into traffic on the on-ramp. I really miss my Saturns.

Love this car!

Just bought it today but so far so good!! Bomb stereo. Cute inside and out. Handles well. Seems good on gas and am looking forward to hauling my grandkids around.

Not that bad of a car

I purchased this Saturn Vue from a great dealer and salesman at the Infiniti of Orland Park, for my daughter. She really likes the car.

Like New With 107,000 Miles Saturn VUE XR 3.6 AWD

I am 77 and this is only the second used car I have purchased in the last 40 years. I was very surprised at it's good condition (interior, rust) and lack of any problems with things such as gauges, knobs, door handles, lights etc. The design is still current and the interior room is good for me. I'll update the lighting LED's and add some extras like performance exhaust, WT mats, wheels etc. This is the first American brand I have purchased in 29 years. I am surprised at the overall good quality of the car. It drives like other small 2017 SUV's I've driven i.e. Ok but not like sedans. I had a Lexus RX350 which was a better driver. It has plenty of power but poor mpg. Surprised US buyers let this car ( as the Captiva) disappear. It would be a good home for a 3L double turbo and 8 speed. I must admit it is too heavy (4000+) as is to be competitive with newer small SUV's. Great car for someone who only drives 5,000 mile per year in the snowy north.
