2004 Saturn VUE from North America
Car has too many faults, with no fixes,not worth the money
Transmission case replaced at 1300 miles.
New transmission at 1900 miles, and continuing to experience problems.
Steering links replaced.
Various suspension problems.
Ongoing noisy steering column.
The design of the car attracted me, however it has turned out to be the worst car that I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Over all statement. Does not mention which model VUE V-6 or I-4. There is a differance in transmissions!
Would have thought person would have bought V-6 since they owned Honda previously?
We have new Red Line Vue 2500 miles no problems yet...

Our 2004 Vue V6 FWD is quite possibly the best car we have owned in the last 30 years. Excellent power and fit and finish. We are going to tow it behind a motorhome, and it meets the requirements perfectly. Probably the only faults we can find are lack of enough tilt steering range, and no seat lumbar supports as standard.

I have the 2004 cl VTI FWD. It was just back to the dealers for 4 days for replacement of the half case. It is on its second transmission, which began to exhibit problems at 3,500 miles. In five months it has been in for service about 10 times. I loved the car the first few weeks, but I am very disappointed with its performance and with Saturn. Lemon law case pending.

We have a VUE with VTI. The transmission has been replaced and it's still making noises my wife said. Our neighbor a few doors up has the exact same car as us, year, model, color, everything and he hasn't had any problems at all. So we're going to try and take the car back and get another GM with a proper transmission and my wife wants a car again. We love the car except the transmission and it's rather noisy at high RPM where the Pontiac Sunfire with the same engine is a quieter and more refined. I heard recently that VTI has all the glitches out of it now for VUE models made in mid 2004.
