2006 Saturn VueDinamite, Laurel, DE, August 15, 2012 09:03This is my 2nd Saturn Vue. First one was 2003 model and now have the 2006 model. I have owned 16 cars in my lifetime and the Saturn Vue is one of the best, second only to my 94 Toyota Camry. A previous writer was going off about the timing belt. This is part of your normal 80,000 mile maintenance! My mechanic told me about mine when I was close to it. He said he could go ahead and replace it (80,500 miles) or I could wait. He said if he replaced it, I was looking at about $450.00. If I waiting and it broke, it could mean a new engine. Of course I had him go ahead and do it! He also replaced the water pump at the same time because he was right at it and it wouldn't cost me additional labor. I have had some brake issues. The original set was great and lasted me about 3 years. Once they were replaced, I've had isues with squealing and grinding. Someone apparently turned my rotors too and now I've been told, you don't turn rotors on a Saturn Vue! Finally think I have a good set of pads since it's been about 6 months this time with no problems. If more people would service their vehicles regularly, I think you would hear less complaints on some vehicles. To the writer who said she needed extended warranty, beware of those!! Stay away!! Most of them won't pay out when something goes wrong. Biggest reason they use is "corrosion". It's not covered! Just save your money and pay for your repairs.Rookie
2006 Saturn VueVisitor, Westland, MI, June 27, 2011 09:06This has been a great car, But I have 55,000 miles on it and at an idle it has a miss where the motor shakes. I took it to the dealer and they said there was nothing wrong. Because there are no error codes they could not do anything. Does anybody have any ideas.
2006 Saturn VueNana22boyz, Cypress, CA, April 28, 2011 14:52This is my secone Vue, had a 2003 with no problems. This is a great car, just now had issues with the water pump and because of where it is located, neeed to spend a great deal in labor costs to repair. Not a pleasant experience and did this through GMC.....next time will find a local mechanic. But besides this a great little SUV, easy to drive and feel very safe in it.Rookie
2006 Saturn VueVisitor, Sherwood, OH, December 09, 2010 07:27I have a 2006 Saturn Vue, overall a good vechicle. It has 98,000 and the timing chain just went out. Looked up reviews and this typically only happens in older models. Be aware. New engine 3,500, replace parts 1,500-2,000, used motor out of junkyard 700 plus somebody to install. The issue I have, Saturn(Chevy) they know this is an issue, but they don't recall the problem to fix it....That's the negative side.
2006 Saturn VueVisitor, Portland, OR, July 14, 2010 17:09I love my 2006 Saturn Vue, it gets great gas milage for it's size and has yet to give me any major problems. My brakes are the only issue I have had with this car, they work fine but squeak constantly and everyone who has looked at them says they are fine, more of an annoyance than anything else. I especially loved it after I got in an accident, which would have been much worse in another car.
