I like my car but it is giving some driving. Trouble. Right now. And it only has 138400km on it and has developed a hesitating. and astumble. In it. If I could get it fixed I would like it again

What would make car idle too high then real low and cut off then its real hard to crank,almost like its getting too much gas of not enough,keeps sputtering and not going then cuts off

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue 4 cylinder 5 speed love it. No problems I have over 150,000 miles, great gas mileage on hwy & city awesome SUV.

I love my car and I am so glad I bought it. I have not had any trouble with the car in 6 years except to buy a new battery. I had to have some Freon put in my air conditioner last summer, but that has been all. What a cute car.
