    The power might be comparable with the V6, but overall the Vue Redline looks like a bargain, other than pure luxury that is....

    Re: SRX Vs. Vue Redline

    IMO, the Redline series is a great set of vehicles but Saturn has a ways to go to get their fit/finish up to standards. They have a rabidly loyal owner's group and the best dealer customer service in the business. Add to that a fairly decent assortment of product and you have a company that's "almost" there. All they need is for GM to stop restricting the drivetrain choices and get the fit/finish issues handled. The new Sky and Aura look poised to pounce on the market and take no prisoners too. All in all Saturn might have a pretty good future.

    Saturn used to have a great reputation for quality, safety and reliability so I think it's too bad that rep has lost some status in the last couple years it seems. I still can't get over the fact there is a GM car with a Honda engine in it.

    Apparently Honda can't either, which is probably part of the reason why this stopped with the Vue and Ion redline.

    On the same token, you now have Land Rovers with BMW AND Jaguar engines, Chryslers with Mercedes drivetrains and Fords with Volvo chassis. Globalization anyone? Looks good to me!

    That being said, its a crying shame the Chevrolet Equinox, as close to a smash hit as GM could hope for, got some Korean based V6 and wasnt able to share in the wealth of the Honda in the Vue; its platform-mate.

    If I ever bought a chev I will make sure it doesn't have a Korean engine in it. To me it just cheapens GM's image somehow.

    Re: SRX Vs. Vue Redline

    I own a Vue Redline and was provided an SRX loaner while my CTS was at the dealers for one of its many stays there. The VUE RL handles better and has quicker 0-60 launches.

    SRX definately beats the Vue for interior quality but I gave 21,000 for the Vue and a comparably equipped SRX is double that. My Vue has been at the dealers twice for repairs in the last 12 months. My CTS has been at the dealers for repairs over 10 times in the last 22 months. The SRX rides on the same platform as my CTS so I would expect better reliability from the Vue.
