Vue 4-cyl

  • 28,000 miles
Cruise control disengaged, this happened twice over a period of a month, when this happened the dash lights went dim, on Sept 14,2012, on I-75 at 60 mph the cruise disengaged and the engine quit, I was put in a very scary situation, almost got rear ended car is at a Chevy garage now and because it will not duplicate what happened to me there is no fix. It scares me to think of it happening again. I have owned two other Saturn with no issues this one has had a few which will show on the gms list of fixes it has had. I wish now I had not bought this car.

Vue 4-cyl

  • 21,000 miles
Bought the Vue in April 2011 and when I started using my ac in may it would barely blow cool air, took it in and the seals were bad and compresser was cracked and freon almost gone. They fixed it but it still didnt blow cold like it should. Took it back in July because it was not blowing even cool air. They said the air inlet door wasnt open and I guess they opened it. Blew cold air but still only if I had it going full blast. And still not as cool as it should have been. But at least it was a bit cooler. Fall came and my transmission croaked on me..took it back and they fixed it, so far so good. But now its hot again and once again my ac is not doing the job it should be. My dealership is 100 miles away so haviing to take it back and forth is nuts. Can they just put on a new ac unit..its under warrenty but they told me next time it was going to cost me a 100 dollar deductable..this is bs. I wish I had never bought this vehicle.
