Default New Addition to the Family

This Tuesday my aunt and uncle are getting their first Saturn, an '05 Vue to replace the aging 1998 Windstar Limited. The Vue is a front wheel drive 4-cylinder model in Storm Gray with a sunroof, power windows/locks, and the compass/thermometer mirror. I think it has the wheel covers, but I am not sure, as I haven't seen it yet; I am going with them on Tuesday to take delivery. The Windstar, as dependable as it has been for the past 7 years, it is on its last legs. My uncle hit a deer with it a few weeks ago and it knocked out the front passenger side marker lamp and crumpled the fender a little. It also needs a second head gasket replacement, and the transmission is slipping very badly. It's got over 120,000 hard miles on it, and it's never left any of us stranded. My aunt wanted a Corolla, but decided she liked the ION better to commute to Manhattan from Rockland with. Then they realized that going from a big minivan to small sedan would be a huge change, and realized the Vue would fill the economy/utility gap perfectly. So, now my family's fleet will consist of the '02 Galant, the '90 Taurus, my '05 L300 and now the '05 Vue.

Congratulations, it sounds like they got the 4cyl/Automatic with one of the sport packages. The great thing about the Vue is that it can be different things to different people. For me, it's a tall car, for other people it's a small SUV.
