Pros: AC operated off battery
Cons: HeightVery energy efficient, and does great as a sport utility vehicle. Runs very quietly and is great for quick trips.
could have been better
Pros: Honda engine
Cons: replacing wheel bearingsThis is before steel panels. lots of road noise, and had years to fix. replaced every wheel bearing at least once. fortunately under warranty but now I'm off and they charge $370 to replace one ' for life'. This is the same problem they had in 02 on my first one. The honda engine is great. I used to love Saturn but I can no longer recommend them even as a used one. This is typical of american made cars they nickel and dime you. All the ads are b.s. it is the same old same old.
Pros: On Star
Advice: Get the V6The roominess of the car is great and the appearance is stlyish. I would definately get the V6 engine and the front seats could be a bit roomier. Leg room is great both front and rear. Has a very smooth highway ride alothough the engine is a bit noisy. Good amount of cargo space and storage. Could use a bottle holer in the door. The power window switches take some getting use to and the sound system sucks.
Cons: Radio sound system
Advice: Get the V6.Just purchased 07 Vue (less that 3K current miles). Excellent SUV. The V6 engine delivers a lot of get up and go. confortable on long trips, Turning radius is GREAT! size is perfect, especially to town driving. Biggest disappointment is sound system. Bought the upgraded radio system with the sub-woofer in read. Even with bass set to max, and fade set to rear, you can barely hear any sound coming from speaker. NOT worth the additional cost.
Pros: Nondenting plastic panels
Advice: Get the V6 Honda built engine since it and the excellent GM transaxle will last 10+years.This car is utilitarian, affordable, and practical. I love the performance and quality and recommend it to anyone who needs an affordable outstanding SUV!
