I got this car after totalling a Honda Accord EX. Needless to say this is a big change, but I love being up high and having good visability. The seats stain easily and get uncomfortable on long trips, but it is a pretty comfortable car overall. The gas mileage isn't as great as a Honda, but for an SUV it exceeds expectations. I have room for everything I want to carry, and traveling is a lot easier. The back is big enough to move furniture, etc. around as well.
Where do I start? This is a terrible vehicle, and will probably be one of the reasons that Saturn will die as a brand in a year or two. Saturn decided to experiment with a continuously variable transmission in this vehicle, and the experiment was a failure. The tranny lasts about 50k miles. The rear set belts all failed within 5 years. Many, many parts of the vehicle that should last 100k miles have already been changed in this vehicle. It is loud on the freeway, and the seats stain easily. The only good thing about this vehicle is that it has car seat latches in each of the 3 rear seats.
My hubby and I needed something bigger than my little red Focus as we try to expand our family, but I still wanted something that had decent gas mileage, wasn't a mini van, and still had some style. We got that and more with our Saturn Vue. (I do wish it came with a manual transmission, but I'll get used to the automatic.) The interior is in great condition and very stylish, it has OnStar, and I love the color; a metallic green. It rides really well, with very smooth steering. More than that, I love how much safer I feel driving around in something that doesn't resemble a soda can. I talked with someone who got into a really bad accident in the Vue where it was deemed totaled, but she and her newborn walked away without a scratch! And though we lost a bit of MPG when we switched from my little Focus we are very please with the MPG we have compared to the size of our Vue; besides it's hard to compare MPG when going from a go-kart to an actual vehicle. I would recommend a Saturn Vue to anyone looking for a vehicle that will hold a decent amount of stuff (and people), but still want something that doesn't resemble a box on wheels.
