The new beater....

How you guys like the new beater? My car was starting to get too many miles so i decided to pick this up...

Its a 07 Saturn Vue hybrid with only 8k miles. White/ Grey

Comes with sunroof, heated seats, aluminum package, alloy wheels, power seats, roof curtain airbags, traction control, and some other stuff.

I know all this stuff sounds stupid but they are all options on a Saturn, its not a Bmw lol

Anyways i love the way it drives

Your killing the enviornment with that car. Hybrids are terrible and not GREEN at all actually. Nice car as a beather though. Best color also. I actually think they looks nice. Way better than any previous VUE.

Nice!

I've never been in a older Vue, but my GF worked at the Saturn dealership and I sat in a new model and it wasn't half bad! Shame about the gas mileage on the V6 models, but your hybrid should be great! Don't listen to all the Saturn going out of business stuff either, you can get it serviced at any GM dealership.

good point - Saturn could end up as part of the Chevrolet division

OP: nice beater - tops my old QX4 "dog car" for sure

Saturn will go out of business only if GM goes under. But "Saturn" will no longer be "Saturn," and that's a fact. Instead it will be GM, and "Saturn" will be rebranded or simply not built any more (and no longer building them is the most probable route.) Part of the bailout is to force brand consolidation and therefore efficiency.

But, sure, any Saturn on the road will still be serviced. However, like any discontinued product, parts and service will eventually no longer be supported.

saturn will not be discontinued they are actually one of the brands that do good for GM....Trust they will stick around.

The aura, vue, and ion sell well. The outlook will probably dissapear..

I know becuase i spoke to someone who works at a plant. However the gm trunks are going..
