With the Equinox, you also get better performance, though the Vue Hybrid has better fuel economy and safety ratings. The Escape Hybrid edges the Vue Hybrid with better performance and interior quality. I would not have wasted my time if I knew all of the issues the car had. Most critics said the four-cylinder and base V6 engine felt sluggish compared with the 3. The Red Line is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. The seats were supportive and straddled the line between cushy and firm. The 4 wheel drive even in fall, is the precursor to how it will handle in the strong Chicago winter.
You know, the one that had hard-to-dent plastic body panels and a no-haggle pricing policy. Today, that different little brand no longer has plastic body panels, but it still has one of the highest customer-satisfaction ratings when it comes to the car-buying process. I feel that they wasted my time by not disclosing this. Other Cars to Consider The is a good alternative to consider. This feature was mostly praised by the staff, with the exception of one lone detractor. Especially when outfitted with leather, the 2009 Saturn Vue offers the richest passenger cabin in the category. I am 77 and this is only the second used car I have purchased in the last 40 years.
For now though, follow the jump to see some initial impressions of the new Saturn hybrid. It would be a good home for a 3L double turbo and 8 speed. I went in knowing kind of what I was wanting and Wyatt showed me three different car options and explained the difference of each one. The salesman was very accommodating about showing what I wanted to see as well as letting me drive what I wanted. Driving It To this point, all of our drives in the second-generation Vue have been in models equipped with the 3. Rear passengers are treated to an upscale cupholder that exemplifies how superior even the most minute interior features are in the Vue.
Either front- or all-wheel drive is available, and your only transmission option is an automatic. Maximum cargo space with the rear seats folded is 56. Some of the others I saw there hadn't even been cleaned. Amed was calm and relaxed making it me feel calm and relaxed, especially for a young man with a new dealership. One tiny complaint: the transmission selector didn't operate as smoothly as we'd have expected. This truck received alot of remarks and looks. Some thought that seating was comfortable for the most part, but a few test drivers felt that the rear seats lacked legroom, and the Vue Hybrid trails competitors in terms of cargo room.
Most pressure you big time to buy. Every marketer will tell you that car shoppers are so accustomed to cars being relatively equal as modes of transport that their styling makes a significant difference in the buying decision. While mileage suffers, performance excels in most areas important to everyday driving and comfort. The good news is that the 2008 Vue matches or bests the competition on almost every front. Bear in mind that this impression is based on about 25 minutes of shared time with the car we buddied up with Jalopnik's Wes Siler.
She answered all my questions, but did not make me feel like I had to buy the car or else as every other dealer I visited did. Those looking for athletic handling should look for the sport-tuned Red Line model. Features found in option packages or upper trims include automatic climate control, navigation, heated seats, Bluetooth and a rear-seat entertainment system. The new Vue is stylish, it has fantastic road presence and its interior is arguably the best in the segment. This is the fourth vehicle I've leased and the best experience I've had.
My wife and I had great experience buying a Honda van from this dealership. The highly-ranked offers large interior and cargo spaces. We would have liked more lateral support while cornering, but the seats are otherwise comfortable and a definite improvement compared with the previous model's. The official full-dog-and-pony-show media launch event is set to take place in December, and we'll be on hand for that as well. The first thing I noticed was the rather large steering wheel and its brushed-nickel insert at the bottom.
Reviewers also noted that all models handle fairly well. Patience, heat and rust penetrating spray recommended for removal. Inside the cabin, higher quality interior materials are used, and levels of fit and finish are much improved, but the front seats are uncomfortable and lack adequate support. Noteworthy options include premium leather upholstery and a Convenience Package that includes rain-sensing wipers, heated washers and a universal remote. The Vue Hybrid received mixed reviews for its interior, but most agreed that it had good-quality materials for its class. The Vue is relatively heavy for its class, weighing in at 4,076 pounds.
