Re: Rear Bumper Reflector replaced with LED Lights

I have a 2014 Chevy Captiva (same as the the 2008-10 Saturn Vue) that is set up to be a toad for a class C motorhome. I have a wiring harness installed for the brake lights. I have incandescent...

Re: 235-60R17 Tires Kelly vs Firestone vs Goodyear?

On my last Vue I had various tires. The last set that I got were Kelly Tires. They were out of round. I went through a real hassle trying to get the non-stocking shop to exchange them as they...

Re: Just bought a 2010 VUE. What do I need to know?

I formally owned a 2004 Vue (died of VTi syndrome) and a 2006 Vue (repairs at one point cost more than the vehicle was worth). I now have a 2014 Chevy Captiva, which I consider my third Vue. I've...

Re: Shortage of Vue 3.5 V6 Oil Pans

Best of luck to you Saturn Newbie. I ended up trading my 2006 Vue in late in 2014 for a 2014 Chevy Captiva. Since the Captiva was the Saturn Vue in 2008-10 I feel like, in a way, this is my 3rd...

Re: Acquired 2002 3.0 AWD non running Vue...

Looks a lot like one of my old Vues. It's amazing how the exterior always looks great but the mechanicals just wear out. Good luck with the swap.

Re: Rear View Mirror Compass Not Working Correctly

I believe that the owners manual shows how to calibrate the compass. Unfortunately, I sold my 2006 Vue last year so I can't look it up. However, here is a link to a 2005 Vue manual:

Re: Wheel bearing versus Tire Howl?

In the past, I have always replaced both wheel bearings on a given axle. The reason is, if one goes, the other may not be far behind. If the noise appears to be coming from the opposite site and is...

Re: saturn 2008 under front grill

Re: Buying 06 Vue Redline - NY

Welcome to saturnfans.com and congrats on your upcoming purchase! I believe that Redline Vue's are all AWD so that should be good for those snowy Rochester winters. It's a nice city. My Dad was...

Re: Miss my Saturns

Welcome back to saturnfans.com . I too am a former Saturn owner. I had an 04 Vue I4 AWD VTi and a 2006 Vue V6 FWD. They were both fun vehicles to drive, though they did have their issues. I now...

Re: Why is the resale of Saturn's so poor?

Parts availability is the big issue. I had a tough time finding an oil pan for my 06 V6 Vue a few years ago. That engine is NOT the same as the 3.5L Honda engine but is a derivative of it. It was...

Re: Who Will You Vote to be the Next President of the United States?

If you remember back to 2011 Trump ran and was initially very strong. However, he bombed during the first GOP debate and dropped out shortly thereafter. Let see if he has improved his debating...

Re: (2006 Vue) Will a V6 (non Red Line) Rear Bumper fit a Four Cylinder Vue?

If they are the same year I am guessing that they should interchange. I had a 2004 4cyl and a 2006 6cyl and, other than then small rubber protective mat at the top of the bumper, I think that they...

Re: 2003 Saturn Vue 4 AWD 2.2 engine transmission

Welcome to saturnfans.com . Not sure about the answer to your question but if your Vue is a 4 cylinder AWD I can tell you from experience that the transmission for your vehicle is prone to problems,...

Re: Loud vibration @ low RPM's - Help

I would either take it to another dealer such as a GM dealer for a second opinion or just trade it for something else and take the loss. I recently bought a 2014 Chevy Captiva so I have a vehicle...

Re: New London CT - a 250.00 Ion on CL

After hearing about that pour couple in GA and the Mustang I wouldn't buy anything on Craigslist unless I took the front four of the New England Patriots with me to make the deal.

Re: 2005 relay?

kbb.com lists the price range for this vehicle as between $4200 and 6K so the price is in the ballpark. I looked at buying one when they first came out to replace a 1999 Dodge Caravan. There were...

You can get either a Saturn cluster or a new Chevy Captiva cluster from your local GM dealer.

Re: Traded in my 06 Vue on a 14 Captiva

Yes. I compared this dealer's price to some of the Enterprise used car lots and they were comparable.

Carfax showed nothing reported. And yes, some rentals are abused. But I bought a former rental RV over two years ago and have had no issues. And the rental companies do routine maintenance on...

Traded in my 06 Vue on a 14 Captiva

I've dumped a lot of money into my Vue over the last 6 months: tires, front brakes, rear brakes, seized brake calipers, rear wheel bearings. My commute to my current contract location has been very...

Re: Saturn Vue

Welcome. I think that the aftermarket accessory business for Vues is probably dwindling fast. Wikipedia has the sales numbers for the Vue but they were between 10K and 100K each year. I'm sure...

Re: Decision to make...

I'm in the same boat. I'm going to hit 130K on my Vue this week. I need new rear wheel bearings. About $600. I wouldn't mind a new 2014 Chevy Sonic. However, I don't want the $2-300 car payment...

Re: The end of a Generation

I see a fair number of 1st generation S series Saturns in northern Virginia. I guess as long as their owners keep adding oil to them they will keep running.
