You are in the Saturn VUE
What is this discussion about?
Saturn VUE, SUV
Aug 15, 2005 (7:24 am)
The lease on our 2002 Vue is coming due in the fall. Our Saturn dealer is excited to sell/lease a new one to us. We are also looking at the Vue's sister SUV the Equinox. My gut tells me to stick with Saturn and the 3.5L V6 looks like a nice upgrade from our 3.0 but I like the look of the Equinox a bit better.
We will test them both in the coming week or two.
Any comments on people that have tested both would be appreciated.

Yes saw a fully loaded VUE FWD V6 in NC...dealer had about ten...looks very sharp with the chrome package...interior looks great and upscale.

love the 06 Vue! Got the new cypress green w/full package and it is awesome!! I have NEVER expressed myself one way or another on a car purchase; it's a vehicle, but not this one....IT'S GREAT!! The service and sales personnel are like family. My husband was looking at a ford freestyle.....(had a ford as trade-in) they were willing to give us 5K on trade...Sature complimented me on the mint condition of my trade-in and gave me 8K...go figure. I love my VUE for it's own merit not just the trade $. Go Saturn.

Does the Vue have 3 rows of seats?

I was just wondering, since it's hard to compare a 7pass vehicle with a 5pass vehicle. In my opinion if you need the capability of a 7pass vehicle, then there's no sense in looking at 5pass cars, but if you don't need a 7pass car, but it would be nice as an option, then I guess you could look at both, but's it's a pretty significant difference. For the exta 1 1/2 feet in length, I'll take the 3rd row.

I find 3rd rows in larger SUVs (like Explorer) to be useless for anyone other than little kids. In a VUE, they would even worse. An extended VUE was initially planned but got scrapped. Maybe the next generation VUE will have an EXT. model.
#3466 of 3783 Interest in 06 Vue

I'm looking at buying a 06 AWD Vue. Is all the engines made by Honda, or only the 3.5V6?
Do these depreciate more faster than comparable models?
I wish the warranty was a 4/50, but the crash ratings, on star, awd, and plastic doors appeal to me. Currently have a 99 Suburban, that we no longer need all the passenger room to grown kids (now driving).
Would you buy again? If not, what would you buy and why?
