Greetings:

I have a 2003 VUE, Bright Blue. Need touch up paint to cover a few lines. All my paper work says bright blue. All the websites say to order by color code.

Ones that had GM color swatches, well GM used 8 different bright blues that year. None of which looks like mine.

Anyway, does anyone know what the color code or where to look? There is no card on the spare cover. Just instructions for replacing a flat tire.

Thanks

Is it Cobalt Blue Metallic? In that case it is code 70/WA885K. Your paint code is supposed to be in the left (driver's) door jamb.

I just bought some paint for my 05 blue VUE. There were so many different blues I just went to the dealer and let them order it. I thougth mine was pacific blue but the paint was a different name. Think my code is in the drivers rear door.

This is correct. I have an '04 VUE in the same color. I think Saturn called it Bright Blue in '03 then changed it to Electric Blue in '04. GM's name for it is Cobalt Blue but it's all the same WA color code, 885K.

:eek: Thanks for the help. Yes, GM changed the name to Cobalt Blue in 2004 and in 2006 changed it again to Laser Blue. I finally found the sticker on the driver's side passenger door. 70/WA885K 70 is Saturn's code for the color. But the sticker has WA885K on it.

I was also given this link for the color from autocolorlibrary

Well I ordered some touch up paint and hopefully I won't make a bigger mess covering up the scratches.

Touch-up paint is better for filling-in small stone chips than scratches... it will usually make the scratches more noticeable. I would recommend using a better quality brush than the one that's mounted inside the cap. There are instructions on the side of the paint tube, you really should read and follow them! :yes:

Don't think the Lazer blue is the same. '06 blue is lighter than the electric blue that came on the '03
