Saturn Vue Used Car Buyer’s Guide: 2008
For 2008, Vue XE came with sixteen-inch alloy wheels, A/C, keyless entry, full power accessories (doors, windows and exterior mirrors); and of course, OnStar telematics. Other highlights included steering-wheel audio controls, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a CD/MP3-capable stereo audio system with satellite radio and an auxiliary input jack.
To all of the above, the XR added seventeen-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, an automatic climate control system, a power adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated mirrors, and lighted vanity mirrors.
The Red Line came set up with a lowered, sport-tuned suspension system, a rear spoiler, dual chromed exhaust outlets, eighteen-inch alloy wheels, a pair of heated front sport seats, combination leather and suede upholstery, and unique performance-oriented instrumentation.
Many of the XR's additional features were available as options on the XE. Leather seating and heated seats were also available for both. Key options for both XE and XR included a premium audio system with a CD changer, a navigation system, rain-sensing wipers, and a remote vehicle starter.
Safety gear included ABS, stability control, traction control, side airbags for the front seat, side curtain airbags, and active headrests for whiplash prevention.
