2008-2009
2008 Redesign Year
The 2008 redesign included a better interior and a more supple ride. Higher quality materials improve the interior ambiance, but the front seats are somewhat uncomfortable.
Standard ESC mitigated the tip up problem, but braking distances are inordinately long. The V6, paired with a six-speed automatic, is a good powertrain, but returns only17 mpg. Model year 2009 was the last for the Vue.

2002 Redesign Year
Saturn's small SUV has a subpar interior and seats that lack support. The steering is numb and the slow-responding AWD system allows the front wheels to spin noticeably on slippery roads before the rear wheels engage.
The 3.0-liter V6 provides quick, but noisy acceleration. In 2004, it was replaced by a better 3.5-liter V6 from Honda. On early models, four-cylinder Vues use a CVT or a five-speed-manual, while V6 versions have a five-speed automatic. A tip up in the government's rollover test is a concern.
