Hybrid Is Everything I wanted and MORE...
Pros: The split back seat fold down ability. We can put someone in a seat on a longer item in the fold down area next to them.
Cons: Wish it had a 3rd row seat!I love the Saturn VUE Hybrid I bought new in 2006. I average 25 MPG on my Chicago Suburbs trip to work and 31 mpg on the Highways. It carries all of my stuff and my family of 4 easily...we can put a 5th in the back seat with my boys. The interior is basic, but with 2 nearly teenage boys, it works well for us. The exterior holds up to everything...including the boys soccer ball mistakes.
Overall a good vehicle.
Pros: Its heighth and able to see above other vehicles.
Cons: Unable to have a clear view when backing up.Overall I am pleased with my Saturn Outlook. At first gas mileage was at 16 MPG but lately after 32,000 miles it is around 20 MPG. Saturn should have made it mandatory to put back up sensors on the Outlook because of its high profile when backing up. I back up into a low profile vehicle (Trans AM) just recently because I was unable to see it from my rearview mirror. One other thing is the AC system does develop a smell of which I have taken it for repair twice already.
Pros: plastic body panels
Cons: suspension componentsgreat vehicle, engine and transmission. Unfortunately, the GM suspension is typically bad: by 50K miles - replaced front hubs/wheel bearings, front strut mounts, and lower control arm bushings.All door gaskets are decaying and cracked. Complained to dealer who said we were lucky because most Equinox and Vues had these issues around 40K miles....of course, just after warrantee ran out. Luv the plastic body panels, still looks like new.
Love the Low maintenance
Pros: low sporty look
Cons: doesn't make hitch install easyThe truck (redline edition) has not given me many problems. The problems I've had were do to the service dept. It's got really good power and is sturdy. Has lots of space.
Pros: I just like it drives well looks good dependaable
Cons: that I can no longer go to have it service with dealer too far to drive thereI love my Saturn it is my 3rd one
