Just FYI, the Spring Hill made VUE is no more, GM closed Saturn's Spring
Hill plant (a stupid move, IMHO) and the last VUE rolled off the assembly
line last month. Git 'em while you can. Or when the new Daewoo built (ya, I
know) VUE arrives later this year, you might find good deals on used VUEs.
Most depressing. I am now entering into an income range that would allow me
to purchase a new[er] car, and now that Saturn is no more, I'm not sure what
I want. Kia's have timing belts. No good. I guess I'll just stash S-Series
and some Vues on the back 40' :P
Thanks for th 411,figures,when i show an interest in something--poof--
it be gone.now the question is: will the Vues in the dealerships still
be around,or,sell 'em to an auction.thers goota be more foot room than
I don't know how big the other guy is, but I just bought an 05 Vue and i am
6 foot 3 inchs 258 pounds. Lots of room. I actually have to have the seat
ahead a bit. My two other s series cars, I had to have the seats as far back
as they could go in order to drive them.
Yeah I dont know what PR is talking about... I'm 5'11" and I found the
Vue to be very spacious in the front and in the back. I never had to put
the front seat all the way back.
There is a good deal of foot and leg room. The floor boards are deep so
your thighs will make full contact with the back seat. The only issue I
have with the Vue is no lumbar support. That could easily be added by
the owner however.
I agree - Unless PR plays for the NBA or is Sgt. Hightower there's plenty of
leg room. I'm 6'-1" and I think I'm 3 or 4 "clicks" up from all the way
from the back position, and when you have a stick, you have to be a
PS: For those that don't get the Sgt Hightower reference, that's from a bad
(but good in a way) "Police Academy" movie, as when he learns to drive he
doesn't fit in the Honda, so he literally rips the front seats out and sits
in the back seat to drive :)

BläBlä on the head, and inspiring the following:
I dunno. I guess it comes from being an Avalanche owner. I am
6'4" (190cm) and just don't find it particularly roomy.
It IS fun to drive, tho.
Driving a 6,000lb truck, you don't get the fun seat-of-the-pants
experience you get in a V6 VUE. :P
I really do need to make it a bit quieter, tho. What tires are
recommended? I have the OEM tires still at 25,000 miles.
It all depends on where your height is.
I'm only 5'-11", but I'm quite long between the knee and foot.
This gives me great trouble in some vehicles when there isn't a
telescoping steering wheel. My knee hits the steering wheel and I can't
properly place my foot on the pedals.
Guys, there are plenty of VUEs out there to be found right now and many
dealers have 'em plentiful. What I was saying is that probably by the year
end, there will hardly if any at al be any '07's left.
