How to compare Saturn Vue reviews

Prior to the bankruptcy of General Motors in 2009, the Saturn Vue was one of GM's popular vehicles. The Vue was developed at the beginning of the year 2000 to compete in the value, small SUV sector, and sales were initially steady. Unpopular within the motoring press, GM steadily improved the Saturn SUV and increased the models available. There are two different generations of Saturns and reviews that have been mixed. This article provides a guide to comparing Saturn Vue reviews.

First generation

The first generation of Saturn Vue was manufactured between 2002 and 2007 using body panels made of plastic. Motoring journalists generally disapproved of the vehicle's interior when first released, but there were marked improvements for the 2006 model. Previous version The previous version's interiors were viewed as tacky and uncomfortable. It should also be considered that the Saturn was available with continuously variable transmission (CVT) from 2002-2005, but issues became apparent in relation to reliability. A five-speed automatic became available as the optional transmission whilst a five-speed manual was retained as standard. The first generation Saturn view did receive some positive comments for its V6 engine, spacious cabin, dent-resistant panels and decent ride. Negative Saturn Vue reviews focused on the vehicle's low-quality build, cheap quality interior materials and poor steering.

The latest generation

The second generation Saturn Vue was an improvement on the first model in many areas. Critics recognised that the vehicle was based on Opel's Antara made in Germany. Many motoring journalists thought that the European feel and styling benefited the Saturn Vue greatly. Critics Many critics advise against buying old Saturns because of their reliability record and also because parts can be difficult to source if any problems arise. Maintenance costs can be quite high and therefore, they are best avoided unless an exceptional deal is found.
Feature of the second generation Manufactured from 2008-2009, the second generation Saturn Vue was very similar in appearance to the first model. The wheelbase is virtually identical and the overall vehicle size is very similar. The main difference is probably the change from plastic to steel body panels. While the old Vue's body panels were difficult to dent, they also gave the vehicle a cheap and tacky appearance. In comparison to other SUVs, the Vue is noticeably smaller compared to some of its main competitors. Passenger space was reasonable though and the front and back seats were described as comfortable by many critics. A final word Overall, reviews of the second generation Saturn Vue were quite positive with journalists citing the more up-market appearance, a spacious cabin, improved handling and a decent choice of engine varieties.
