The book says 26/33 for mileage. Wife gets significantly less in town. I can get 24 to 25. On 1000 mile trip, I got 33, when car was less than 1 year old. Wife gets 20 in town, with short stop and go drive to work. see full Saturn VUE review

Saturn VUE Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV 257-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I wish the fuel economy was better but I knew what the fuel consumption rating was prior to purchasing the vehicle. It is a large engine (3.6 L) and for its size, a rather heavy vehicle. That weight, however, does add to the safety of the vehicle. see full Saturn VUE review
2008 4dr SUV 169-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Could be better, but being a former Ion owner I recognize that the break in process is a bit long and economy may improve over time. Would be nice if it got better fuel economy from the beginning and improved from that point. see full Saturn VUE review
