I love this vehicle. I call it "my love-child of a mini-van and SUV". It gets me the convinience of a mini-van with the style of a SUV...perfect! It is the exact same vehicle as the GMC Acadia but you spend less money getting it. I highly recommend.
2004 Saturn VueIvan McK - Chicago, IL12/01/2012
I have been pleasantly surprised by my purchase of a 2004 Saturn Vue. It�s better on gas than most SUV�s in its class, it has a lot of storage space, and it�s pretty fun to drive. It is my family�s second vehicle and it definitely comes in handy when we need the extra room.
This car is a blast to drive. I've owned a 2007 & 2008. Not many people know this but when you purchased this car new they had a dealer installed option. It was a larger Borg Warner Turbo giving you 300hp vs 260hp standard in the Red Line. My 2008 had that upgrade and the difference is night and day! I raced a new Mustang 5.0 V8 and we were dead even. His eyes were as big as a Frisbee! I just sold mine because some guy made me an offer I couldn't refuse. It was red w/red leather, perfect. Now I'm kicking myself.
The only drawback on this car is they should of provided a bigger trunk to actually "take" this fun car somewhere. Maybe an overnight bag at best.
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
