How to Save $12,000 by Buying a 2008 Saturn Vue Green Line Hybrid

From GlobeandMail.com: The Vue hybrid interested me for a couple of reasons. First, it's an all-new model for 2008. Second, Canada's auto journos — the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada — voted it best new vehicle in its class. By the way, that was a decision that took me by surprise and appeared to even to shock GM Canada's people. But there you go. And third, the Power Information Network people sent along the latest sales data about the new Vue. More than two-thirds, 68.1 percent, are under 54. This is showing up to be a very mainstream family vehicle.

This, we should point out, is not a full-blown hybrid, but a so-called "mild" one. That means the electric drive system won't run the Vue alone. Instead, it has a belt-alternator-starter system that provides a light boost during acceleration, captures energy during braking and restarts the engine after the vehicle comes to a stop. Simple and effective.
