Default Gear ratios?

Since Saturn no longer seems to list the gear ratios and final drive ratio in their online or printed specifications, can anybody give the gear ratios and final drive for the various models of the VUE?

I'm mainly wondering how many RPMs per MPH in top gear.

On a slightly related question, how do these gears range in physical size? Are they only a couple inches across?

Ive never taken apart a transmission before to know.

2007 SKY
1997 SC2
Default Gear Ratios

The VUE comes with 3 possible transmission configurations

Code:
	MG3	VTi	M45*	MU3**
----------------------------------------------------------------
Range		0.44-2.61		
First	3.58		4.685	3.38
Second	2.02		2.94	1.76
Third	1.35		1.92	1.18
Forth	0.98		1.3	0.89
Fifth	0.81		1	0.7
Reverse	3.31	2.15	3.18	3.17
Final Drv	4.41	5.08	2.6	4.45

* The M45 is the Aisin-AW AF33 Transaxle. It's the 5 speed automatic transmission and I included it to show how it compares to the manuals. 
** The MU3 is the SAAB F25 Transaxle. It's currently only used on the L series (included as a comparison), but expect to see more of these transmissions used on other Saturn/GM vehicles in the near future.

Are you saying the L's auto tranny is unique to the car?

Just trying to clear up some hearsay that i heard.

The L's auto trans is shared with other GM cars. I believe that the Malibu is one of them.

2007 SKY
1997 SC2
Default Say what?

The S series has 1 Transmission 2 models, the L series has 2 Transmissions 2 models, and the VUE has 3 Transmissions.
  • S Series
  • MP2 - 4 speed Auto - Built by Saturn
  • MP3 - 5 speed manual - Built by Saturn
    Applications
  • Saturn S Series
    L Series
  • MN4 - 4 speed Auto - GM Hydra-Matic 4T40-E
  • MN5 - 4 speed Auto - GM Hydra-Matic 4T45-E
  • MU3 - 5 speed Manual - SAAB F25
    Applications
    Chevrolet Cavalier (MN4)
    Chevrolet Malibu (MN4)
    Pontiac Sunfire (MN4)
    Pontiac Grand Am (MN4/MN5)
    Oldsmobile Alero (MN4/MN5)
    Saturn L-Series (MN4/MN5)
    Saturn L-Series (MU3)
    SAAB 93 (MU3)
    Opel Vectra (MU3)
    Saturn VUE
  • M45 - 5 speed Automatic - Aisin-AW AF33
  • VTi - CVT - GM
  • MG3 - 5 speed Manual - Getrag F23
    Applications
  • Saturn VUE (MG3)
  • Saturn VUE (VTi)
  • Saturn VUE (M45)

NOW, let me just say this about the SAAB F25. It's THE transmission used in the Touring Cars of Europe. The Opels, SAABs, Vauxhalls, etc all use this transmission in a 6 speed configuration. So where's that gear set? Oh take a look at the rumors about the 2002 OLOA Saturn. About 3 major companies make the gears and LSD for this transmission, and can be purchased for $4K and $1100 respectivly. Maybe we can get a group discount....
