Saturn VUE Reliability

You won't find Saturn VUE reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Saturn VUE truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Saturn VUE reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Saturn VUE was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Saturn VUE has been recently.

Saturn VUE Reliability and Durability: Pros

2008 4dr SUV 257-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
No problems at all in almost 20K miles, my 2004 Vue went 120K with only a fuel Tank sender problem.
2008 4dr SUV 257-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I have had the vehicle over one year now and have had absolutely no issues whatsoever. I have almost 26,000 Kilometers on the vehicle - 3 oil and filter changes (the next one is not due for about 2 months).
2007 4dr SUV 172-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
4-speed automatic FWD
Only one problem since purchase which was covered under warranty.

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.

So far, I have never had it break down on me. I have driven it to North Carolina and back, driven it to work 5 days a week 66 miles round trip.

I have owned it for 16 months and have put 20K miles on it, with no problems at all. Sweet engine.

I owned my last Vue brand new, I only put a wheel bearing into it after 5 1/2 years. I loved that truck due to its excellent record.

This has been as reliable a car as I have ever owned. At 100,000 miles it was still on all original parts except brake pads, wipers, tires and one rear wheel bearing.
2006 4dr SUV 257-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
I have 98,000 miles on the car and have only had one repair, a bad rear wheel bearing covered under warranty. It starts and runs every time I need it.
