Reviewed: 2008 Saturn VUE

4dr SUV 169-horsepower 2.4L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

Why the 2008 Saturn VUE?

Discounts & incentives

Saturn loyalty incentives and other discounts are pretty good and help lower the price of a vehicle that is already priced below many competitors

Interior styling

The quality has improved greatly and give you the feel of having a more expensive auto.

Price or payments

Price is less than other vehicles in same category with similar features.

Why Not the 2008 Saturn VUE?

Dealer practices

Once the sale is done (in my own experience with one dealership I have dealt with 3 times for my past Saturns) then the staff is less helpful and discourages use of 30 day exchg policy. Strong arm tactics (BBB involvement) required to get service deserved

Past personal experience


Fuel economy

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.

Audio & nav systems

Sound sytem could be better...would help if the standard package also included speakers in the rear top as it does in the front (option is there but only for the upgraded sound package). Can only get the upgrade if you get the Nav. Pointless with OnStar

Powertrain performance

Powertrain could be better. A 5 speed option would probaly have been better. Cruise Control does not seem to work appropriately with current powertrain.
