Hybrid Vue Delivers Space and Economy

Gina Spadafori from DogCars.com recently drove a 2008 Saturn Vue Green Line, and paid particular attention to how dog-friendly the fuel-efficient Saturn really was. "You can't beat the bottom line," she concluded at the end of her review. The Vue provided her a "week of hauling dogs, supplies, and gear with no problem and little gas used."

A monster SUV with four-wheel-drive is a great DogCar; problem is, with gas over $4 a gallon and no relief in sight, it's a DogCar few people can afford to operate and fewer still want to use for the daily commute. So what do you do if you need room for your dogs, their gear and yours but want to go easy both on the environment and your gas-guzzling? The new hybrid SUVs and crossovers may be the answer for more and more people. Fresh out of the box and worthy of consideration: The Saturn Vue Hybrid. It's a versatile SUV with enviable numbers of 26 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway, and a base price starting at a tick over $25,000 (and that includes a year of GM's OnStar service and the first three month of XM satellite radio). As a DogCar, it's a winner.

Stone-Anderson said she painted the white Ion with acrylics she had leftover at home, on and off, weather permitting, for two months.
