2003 Saturn VUE 2.2 from North America
The transmission went out, the front strut mounts are crap, and the rear wiper motor went out.
This vehicle is a nightmare; the worst vehicle I have ever owned... hands down.
Please, if you are reading this, do not buy a 2003 Saturn Vue 2.2 AWD with the VTI transmission... you will have nothing but problems.
Saturn knows that the VTI is a faulty trans., and still charges $4,600.00 for a new one that will probably last about 50,000 miles, and there is yet to be a recall on it; sounds like a automobile company that really cares about its loyal customers to me.
You can't really blame GM though, because believe me, Saturn tries to distance itself from GM the best it can, even though GM is the best thing Saturn has going for it.
Saturn are disposable vehicles... DO NOT BUY ONE. Buy a older vehicle that you can actually service!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
