2008 Saturn VUE Reviews – Consumer Car Reviews


Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor

Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Saturn VUE?

I LUUUUUUUUVVVVVVVVVV my 2008 Vue XR. It is my 2nd Saturn. first being a 1996 SW2 wagon (232,000 miles!!)

I named my Vue Lilly. I am thrilled every time I get in to drive. She is VERY sturdy with a lot of power! I feel invincible after having driven my wagon for so long.

My first 6 cyl. love the power, but the speed limit around here is 35! Hard not to go over the speed limit.

We just took her on a 1200 mile trip. Gas mileage was not great, but the ride was awesome. The driving was not fatiguing at all like some other cars I#39;ve driven. Very comfortable road tripping!

Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Saturn VUE?

The first thing that bothers me is that the chrome trim rings on the a/c vents next to the driver and passenger windows reflect in the side view mirrors; (my windows are tinted. don#39;t know if that makes a difference), it is very distracting. When I glance in them I always think a car is right up next to me. especially when changing lanes or backing up. It#39;s so distracting (really freaks me out!) that I am trying to come up with my own fix.

Another thing that is aggravating is the climate control. If you want to warm the air in increments, the air won#39;t warm much past 75 degrees. If you want about 80 degrees or so you have to turn the knob all the way to the max. and then back off.

It#39;s aggravating to mess with because you have to keep playing with it to get the temp. you want. Kinda#39; dangerous while driving. You should be able to change from cool to warm in one motion!

I also have the problem with the trim on the back passenger window. The triangular piece is starting to pop off at the top, but it looks like the problem is the upper corner of the window has warped inward. it is not flush with the side beam. Taking it in for repair this month.

Also the turning radius is horrible. I don#39;t even attempt u-turns any more.

Yes, the gas mileage is horrible, but I don#39;t work so I don#39;t put that much mileage on it.

2008 Saturn VUE Review:

The worst part of owning a Saturn now is that I miss the Saturn Family type of Service. Saturn service depts. were always wonderful to work with!

I#39;ve taken her to 2 different GM service depts. for oil change and tire rotation. They were rude idiots that didn#39;t know anything about Saturns. I was also told that they won#39;t honor any of thefringe benefits that I was promised from my original dealership..calling them dealer perks. such as free tire rotation for the life of the tires.

GM. bring back Saturn and quit sending me flyers telling me you will give me crap on a trade in for another GM vehicle! How insulting.

I really do love my Lilly! Started to name her Scenic. you know. Scenic Vue? Ha Ha!
