Review 1 of 128

Price Paid:  $25000.00 from Columbus GA

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Saturn Vue

Strengths:
Zippy accelleration

Weaknesses:
Hood latch won't close, Brake lights would not go out (battery ran dead twice)

Summary:
My VUE SUCKS! poor turning radius, poor reilability, crappy transmission, and the longer I own it, the uglier the vehicle looks to me. Thank goodness GM and Saturn went out of business....there's a reason for it....and the VUE is one of them

Review 2 of 128

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Saturn-Liberty Hills

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 saturn vue

Summary:
Never owned a GM car before and WILL NEVER purchase another. Have had the car for less than 2 years and it is very unrelable and a cheaply made car. I have put more money in this vechicle than I should. Can not wait until the day I get a new vechicle.

Review 3 of 128

Price Paid:  $18000.00 from Bob Moore of OKC

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Saturn Vue XR AWD

Strengths:
The all wheel drive was nice during our ice storms and i love the size and manuverability.

Weaknesses:
All the mechanical failure are a great weakness and what idiot came up the cupholders?? they are too far down. I also have fender pieces separating above all four wheels

Summary:
I bought this car and less than a week later had it in to get the cadalitic converter replaced, I have had two oil pans, electrical shorts, electrical fire, knuckle assembly and steering replaced, onstar backup battery replaced, and the list goes on. It has 41000 miles and never been wrecked. I bought it as a program car and it has been a lemon from the start. I have had it 13 mos now and it has been in the shop at least once a month since I bought it. I love the overall concept just not the constant headaches of mechanical problems.

Review 4 of 128

Price Paid:  $18900.00 from Saturn kearny Mesa

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Saturn/Vue

Strengths:
Sleek exterior look, On-Star, same great hauling space as previous model

Weaknesses:
Interior design flaws with seating, consoles. Mounted side mirrors create blind spot causing potential serious hazard. Car too heavy to stop quickly. Loss of mileage compared to older models. Service & warranty not as good

Summary:
This is my fourth Saturn and a big disappointment. I upgraded my 05 Saturn Vue (which I loved) only to find that the design changes on the '08 did not enhance the vehicle at all. There is very little room between the seats and the large plastic console. Just enough room for a cell phone to slip down but not enough room to get a hand down there without nearly breaking it. The dashboard design looks cheap as does the sound of my blinker. Perhaps the design was meant to take us back to a simpler time but I don't like the antiquated look and feel of it. In addition, the body of the car is much heavier than the '05. The principle reason I upgraded my '05 was that passenegers in the back seat would get car sick 100% of the time on winding roads. The new VUE fixes that problem by having a heavier body, but it's too heavy for the roller skate V4 engine and stopping can be difficult and dangerous. It also means less gas mileage. In addition, the mirrors have been mounted farther away from the body of the car. This creates a blind spot that is difficult to compensate for and I have had many near misses as a result. I have also been very disappointed with the quality and service of the dealership since getting this car. All in all, Saturn isn't what it used to be and this will be my last one. I am counting the days until I am not upside down on the value of the car so I can unload it.
