2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 3.5 V6 from North America
A cheap cheap trill!!!
The Car shook badly.
Customer service was horrible.
I bought Black Saturn Vue with the 3.5 V6 and it was quick of the mark. I loved the was it handled. The 4500 dollars cash back was a plus and a major sales incentive. It looks sharp and is a rugged SUV for the money.
At 10 miles it started to wobble at about 35 mph and continued as it accelerated. I took the car back 5 days after I bought it to be fixed. I got the car back the same day. when I got the Vue back I drove out of the parking lot to find the problem was not fixed. So, I turned around and took it back. As they were taking it on the second test drive they had smashed my car into a curb ruining the tire and the rim. This happened to a car with less than 150 miles on it. So they replaced the tire and rim.
Later I was told that "The Trans axle on the AWD4 & V6 AWD Vues were faulty on most Vues, that's why there is a wobble. And they still sell these cars to people??? So they told me they would order a good one.
I then decided to exchange the Vue back and take another that didn't have the wobble and was not damaged.
Upon getting the new car home, we had to turn around and take the car back. The tail lights and blinkers did not work! This Vue has 5 miles on it and the tail lights and blinkers don't work! I am just fed up. If I have one more problem with this Vue. I will demand my money back. UGH!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

About the wobbling, it was probably a suspension problem and the blinker thing is probably the dealer's fault which if that's the service they're giving you, I'd write your local newspaper and tell people how bad this dealership is and I'd even contact GM too and from experience, they dealt with the situation well and I've found that the Saturn dealer has improved in service dramatically and my friends who own Saturn's feel the same way.

I don't see what all the complaining is about. Our 2004 FWD Vue is a wonderful vehicle. Our dealer is very good and the only problem I have experienced is that slight wobble, but it is not that significant. I had a 2001 SW-2 and loved it so much that I stayed with Saturn. So far I'm glad I did.

I love my 2004 Vue, except for the loud clicking when you use the turn signals.

When I bought my 2004 AWD Vue, there wasn't a lot of problems except for the wobbling, but we brought it in with our warranty. I noticed the inside paint is chipping off next to my radio; also the seat warmers don't work. But I still have this car, can't trade it in, negative amount will roll over.
