A poorly engineered automobile
I purchased the Saturn Vue in September of 2003, and began having problems with the wind noise. This was a direct result of the luggage rack. Needless to say, the dealer's only solution was to remove the rack. In the March of 2004, I began to hear a lound whine and vibration when the vehicle accelerated and decelerated. The vehicle is equipped with a VTI transmission. Took the Vue to the dealer and they replaced the belts in the transmission. I drove the car the following day, and the noise is worse and louder. I now have to take the car to the dealership for a second transmission repair. I will now demand a new one.
I am disappointed with the service and quality of the Saturn Vue. I expected a quality automobile, inasmuch as their advertising touts it. Secondly, I thought I would do my part and help the economy and buy American. To my disappointment, the vehicle has been a lemon. I will dispose of the vehicle as soon as I can and buy what I should have purchased - Toyota. I had two of them before my Saturn and Suburban, and never took them once to the dealer for service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
