2003 Saturn Vue flat towable

Recommended Posts

Can a 2003 Saturn Vue AWD with 6Cyl 5speed automatic transmission be flat towed?  The 2003 Saturn owners manual is not available on line.

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue FWD, I will get out my Owners Manual and see if there is any information on towing.  I will let you know what I find. Sorry it may be tomorrow.

Saturn, one of the most popular towed vehicles among FMCA members, discontinued

the original S-Series cars for 2003 and introduced the ION. Only IONs

equipped with the five-speed manual transmission can be towed; those with the variable-

speed automatic transmission cannot. The VUE, Saturn’s second-year SUV, also

is towable only when equipped with a manual transmission. L-Series Saturns still use

This was posted in 2003, and something may have changed, but I doubt it.

A correction here.

We have a 2006 Saturn Vue with AWD and automatic transmission. Our manual states that to tow 4 down the engine must be idled for 5 minutes, transmission in neutral, and then remove ignition fuse. Leave key in the "on" position so steering is not locked.

Idle again after around 600 miles. We have towed the Vue from Northern Wisconsin to south Texas and back four times without any problems, along with instate travels.

The drive train is an Acura six cyl AWD on the 2006 & 2007 models ONLY.
