2005 Saturn V (yeah, I'm calling it the Saturn Five), 2.2 L61 Ecotec/5-Speed Manual. Power moonroof, heated seats, cruise, etc. 103K miles, bought it from the original owner who was meticulous with maintenance and anal-retentive with receipts. It got an oil change every 3K and has always been serviced exactly when and what needed, including tires that are three weeks old!

Price you ask?

A cool $3,800.

I like those. I almost picked one up during one of my "time to replace the neon" phases. A good amount of space and decent mileage in FWD/5spd form.

How hard can it be to swap a cobalt ss supercharger on it?

Supposedly not hard, and with all my extra budget, I'm going to find out.

Cool.

Couple small issues we have had are lift supports going out, dead rear wiper and windshield washer not working. Other then that and an A/C compressor going out, we have had no problems.

Very nice find! My brother has a 5 speed Vue that he loves. They seem to be very reliable and from my experience, easy to work on.

That's true. It's about 1000% better looking than a 5.

Got one for almost free with a blown engine. Yep 5-speed.

The funny thing is, the engine died NOT from timing chain failure. First time I've seen an Ecotec get hurt that didn't involve the chain wrapping itself up like a fish getting stuck in the aquarium filter inlet.

Man, I can't believe how many Vues around here have nuked transmissions.

In reply to Appleseed: The Tin Foil and plastic automatics were a factory option on these.

I saw a couple beauties for sale a while ago but couldn't read the stats on the windshield.., upon closer inspection: "Bad trans" was written on both.
