2008 VUE 3.6L
2002 VUE 2.2L
Default Carbon Flash Special Edition...

Just letting everyone know that these are starting to hit the dealers. I've got a deposit on one that's coming in on Monday!

For those that don't know, its available on XR (FWD or AWD) and consists of the following:

Carbon Flash Color
Premium Trim Package (grey leather)
6 disc CD changer
Chrome front/rear skid plates
New 5-spoke allow wheels (which look sweet!)

I was psyched b/c when I got my first VUE I wanted the Black Silver paint and this is pretty close to that.

Is this some sort of special edition coming from Saturn, or one of those dealer-created special editions?

Also is the carbon flash a special color or are you referring to storm grey?

No, its not Storm Grey...its actually called Carbon Flash. Its available on the Aura currently as well. I guess they had a Sky Carbon Flash Special Edition sometime last year

Go to this Link

http://eogld.ecomm.gm.com/NASApp/dom...page=&butID=1#

Click Print Book
Select Exterior
Click Print

Right there on the top you'll see the Carbon Flash Special Edition.

Its a Saturn thing, not a dealer created thing. Mine will be here by the "end of the week" according to my dealer. Bummer it wasn't yesterday, but I guess I can wait

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

yeah, the carbon flash color is a sparkly metallic dark gray, it's actually pretty cool. they had one of the auras at the local dealership. the rest of the 'special edition' package is just a new way of bundling current options together. the color is the main thing.

I saw one before I picked up my Aura - Very Sharp! I tried to get the Carbon Flash one - but they said it was spoken for already.

Yeah the color is the main thing, but its a pretty good bundle of things many people would've added anyway. There is no special bundle price savings though, if you add up all the features. The "bundle" costs 1835:

Premium Trim package: 1075
Chrome fascia moldings: 170
6 disc CD player: 295

That leaves 295, probably the cost to upgrade to the optional alloy wheels (can't find a price anywhere) OR the price for the special carbon flash paint (like the mystic blue costs more)

When I got my 2002 FWD manual VUE, It had the "Sport Plus Package" for 160 that added a bunch of cool stuff at a savings of 2615! I never realized how good a deal that package was until I just looked it up!

Power locks
Remote keyless Entry
Security Alarm
Power Sunroof
Autodimming Mirror with Display
Power Mirrors
Cruise Control
16" Alloy Wheels (replacing standard)
Map Lights
AM/FM/CD (replacing standard)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Got to pick up my VUE today and it...is...AWESOME! Unfortunately it rained all day, so I'll try to snap some pics for everyone tomorrow.

The people at the dealership were all impressed with the color scheme along with the new alloys. I got the first Carbon Flash in C-bus! It is gorgeous and well worth the wait

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

you'll have to get us some pics. i tried to find some online but couldn't find any for the carbon flash, i'm curious to see how it looks on the vue.

i didn't really notice it until i got it all washed and the sun came out, but the ruby red color also has the metallic sparkle that the carbon flash does.

Here's some quick pics. The car isn't that clean due to being picked up and driven in the rain the last 2 days. But just wanted to give you guys an idea of the overall look. When the weather clears, I'll try to get some better pics so you can judge the overall color better. Enjoy
