2004 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #5

Vue 4-cyl

  • miles


I have unfortunately owned my Saturn 2004 Vue for 2 years. The first 3 months of having it, after having to replace my 2003 Vue for all the problems it had was in the shop the first 4 months of purchase. The power engine failure light would go on and I would lose all power to the car. They had no idea how to fix it. Then the back windshield shattered. The gas mileage is horrible and the whole gas tank and odometer has had to be replaced. I would feel the car up with gas and the odometer would go to full and move back up to half full. The car is in the shop again for throttle and engine problems again. Have had the real displeasure of working with a very rude lady at Saturn by the name of marcia who clearly does not care about ones safety in their vehicle. According to Saturn the newer vehicles have had these problems fixed. However, I must say having been a Saturn owner for 12 years now my faith in their product is gone.

2004 Saturn Vue purchased in July. Closed rear hatch after unloading groceries and entire back window shattered into the car on me. No evidence prior to the shattering of a crack or any object hitting the back window. It was fine when I loaded the groceries and shattered after I got back home.
