2003 Saturn VUE FWD 4 cylinder VTI from North America
Overall good if transmission issue gets fixed
I am having a hesitation issue when taking off from a stop. Most of the time it takes off just fine, but occasionally it will hesitate to the point I feel like it's going to stall. So far it hasn't stalled. I'm concerned that I'm going to be hit from behind next time it decides to hesitate.
I bought this vehicle for it's safety and reliability which until about a month ago it was. Now I'm concerned that the problem won't get solved after reading other surveys and comments.
I know Saturn has a good reputation and I do hope they can resolve this issue for me because everything else about my Vue is fabulous.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

We recently purchased a 2.2 Saturn Vue with the standard ecotech engine. About a month ago, this vehicle began to periodically 'cut out' or seemingly stall when acceleration was required from a stopping position. The only way to regain power was to floor the accelerator and hope that no one would collide into you from behind.
I have no idea what this potentially dangerous problem is. The dealer has categorically stated that there is no mechanical problem with this vehicle.
