2003 Saturn VUE fwd 3.0 from North America
The vue is a reliable and inexpensive sport utility vehicle
I had experienced no problems with the vue. My wife had the same model with over 9000 miles when it was totaled after being hit in the rear by a larger vehicle traveling 60-65 miles per hour. I have had excellent service from the previous saturns that I have owned, with several of them having over 100,000 miles of trouble free use. I expect this model to be as trouble free as the previous saturns I have owned.
The 6 cylinder with a 5 speed automatic transmission has given excellent performance in town and on the road.
The fuel consumption has been good for a vehicle of this size. As the vue engine was built to use 87 octane fuel, it has been less inexpensive to operate than engines requiring higher octane fuel.
The ride has been comfortable in the front and rear seats. It has been driven on trips of 12 hours, stopping only every few hours for fuel and food.
The controls and features in the vue were easy to reach and use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
