As long as you service the car appropriately, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the exception of the key recall. This was the third saturn I had and it was dependable and held its outside appearance well. There were no problems except for the recall.
2008 Saturn Vuecharlie - Helen Ga07/31/2011
This is the second saturn and we love it for it room,handling and the fact we can tow it on all four wheels down. A car ahead of its time. It is easy to drive,comfortable to be in and has lots of cargo space.
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.
