You can go to the Blue Ox web site and view and/or print the installation instructions to decide if this is something you want to tackle yourself. You have to remove the entire front facia of the Vue to install the base plate. It looks like a big deal, but it's really not that bad because there are very few bolts and screws to remove. Saturn uses plastic pop rivets that are easily pried apart and can easily be reinserted.

Be aware that Blue Ox lists 2 different base plates for the 2006 Saturn Vue. I forget what the difference is, but it has to do with the foam structure behind the facia and it's easy to tell the difference. Apparently Saturn made a running change during the model year. I had to call Blue Ox to find out which base plate I needed.
