Let me help you with this one. First thing you need to consider is performance vs economy, then options. If your're the kind of person that has a lead foot than the 4cly is not for you. If your're the kind of person that likes to pass on the highway, than a 4cyl is not for you. If you like options such as leather, nav system and a sunroof, than a 4cyl is not for you. Simply put, you'd be better off getting the 6cyl. I work at a Saturn facility as a service consultant and can't tell you how many times a customer comes in complaining about how sluggish their 4cyl Vue is. I try to explain to them without sounding rude that all the 4cyl perform this way and it's simply because that engine is being overworked from the weight of the vehicle. Getting a 6cyl isn't that much a of difference fuel economy wise. So if you can afford it, do yourself a favor and get the 6cyl. You'll be happy you did.

Very happy to get your reply. I have already changed my mind to get a 6cyl, just waiting until my smartbuy is up in January 2010.
Thanks again for your opinion.

yes it does rocketbob. I bought one online. It does require installation to the tailgate. Two bolts off the tailgate attachment through the bracket for the air deflector and ur in business. My vue window always got dirty on the tailgate window and bumper. NOT ANYMORE. Just Google "Saturn Vue Tailgate Air Deflector" . I paid 67.00 plus shipping for mine. Goodluck and I know you will enjoy it.

I bought one online for 67.00 plus shipping. It does work very well. The backside of my 2003 Vue does not get dirty anymore. There are two different installation types. The one I have, bolts directly to the tailgate. Take off the two outer bolts from tailgate brackets and install the air deflector and tighten back. The other that I would not recommend in the self adhesive type. My buddy bought that one for 48.00 plus shipping online and 6 carwashes later it is off.

I live in Fayetteville,NC and bought my Vue at 68.500 on Jan 08 and began experiencing the studdering at 30mph then at 45mph now at 50mph and it seems like the pedal is a rocking chair there is no equilibrium. I try to deal with it but on 35mph roads the car will began shaking and I try to ease on and off the pedal to stop the shaking and to not run into the back of other vehicles. Saturn wants all 20,000 of people with problems to all pay $100 to get what they already know is wrong checked out $2,000,000 plus in there pockets then they want us all to pay $2,000. WHICH PUTS $40 MILLION IN THE ACCOUNTS. we must not let them do this and at every available point we should call SATURN customer service and demand immediate action or they will get 20,000 calls a day !!!! I am behind this already filed my NHTSA report and will continue to file till i receive FREE repairs. How should a 2004 68,500 VUE need to have a transmission repair in 4yrs. !!!
