2003 Saturn VUE AWD 2.2 from North America
Maybe not ready for the road yet
This vehicle had a transmission problem at 1000 miles. Some part was replaced that transfers torque from front to rear wheels. After that back in the shop to have the transmission control module replaced and reprogrammed for a rumble at highway speeds. Now at 3500 miles it makes a rumble and vibration while turning corners and is yet to go back in the shop. We'll see what the problem is THIS time.
I bought a new vehicle so I wouldn't have strange sounds and problems. I like this vehicle. It has the space I need. The steering and highway driving is very smooth. I'm not sure I like their new transmission though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 2003 Vue AWD. It has spent more time in their shop than my garage. Transmission is gone, gas gauge has been replaced twice, still not working, Head Gasket has been replaced, griding noise, rattling is continuous. I will never buy another Saturn, nor deal with the West Edmonton Saturn dealership again. I have contacted CAMVAT, (Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration), they are investigating. In all the years I have owned a vehicle, this by far is the worst vehicle I have ever owned.
