Caution to prospecive buyers and current owners: we had a minor traffic accident that would have been $3000 to repair, but because the car and specific repair parts are no longer made, the car had to be totaled. It had been a great car reliable, dependable, with only one major repair to replace the air conditoning compressor in 4+ years we owned it. Very sad as it had been a good car and got decent gas milage.

This vehicle has been a great purchase. Over the last 50-80K miles there has been very few maintenance issues, and the Vue has never left us stranded. full 2006 Saturn VUE review
