Bought another Saturn!

Seriously didn't see this one coming, but the price was right and the condition is pretty darn good for the exterior/interior. I was fed up with having issues loading up stuff. Even in my Civic it was usually a stupid tight fit getting things put in there. The engine in the Civic is on the way out, so I decided to attempt a permanent fix:

2006 Saturn Vue
87k miles
Manual trans










2008 Infiniti G37S Coupe 6MT - 58k - Megan Axle Back

2007 Sky Red Line 5-Speed - 79k - Light mods

2006 Saturn Vue 5-Speed - 103.4k

Hey, we're a 2 Saturn family as well. My wife has a 2003 Saturn LW300 (wagon). Bought it new and now has 135k on the odo and we've had very few problems with it all these years. I would have bought another but GM, well you know.

Welcome to the SKY VUE club

Nice color too. Looks like you found one with a sunroof.

Look'n good. I have a 2007 Vue V6 AWD as my daily driver. Has been good to me and it is setup for towing with my RV.

Well I swapped the front struts, sway bar end links, and strut mounts for under $275. Got to love cheap parts!

The manual is a little hard to shift, so I also am going to do the shift cables this weekend. Fortunately, there is a lot of space...everywhere, so this will aid in the process. The cables and the plastic pieces under the shifter cost $220!

Got the shift cables in as well as the adjusters. The Vue is shifting like a boss now.

GM Dealer gave me a bad diagnosis. They said it was a clutch job. Took $80 of my money to tell me that as well.

I got some sweet PIAA wipers on there and now I have XM on it as well. Since it is my beater, I was able to transfer my lifetime Sirius service to this vehicle, so I'll be able to use XM on the Vue indefinitely for just a $75 transfer fee.
