We recently purchased a 2006 Saturn Vue V6 AWD. We had new adapter plates installed for a Roadmaster Sterling tow bar. Steering diodes were installed for the lights. We installed a Unified Tow Brake by US Gear. Our first outing was yesterday. It towed great. We did not pull the recommended IGN fuse and it did not collect any miles on the odometer with the key in ACC position, in spite of what Saturn says. The unified tow brake keeps the battery charged with a charge line from the motorhome. The lights and tow brake are wired to the motorhome via a six-wire cable. Plugging in the cable connects the lights and the brake system. Removing the cable disconnects the lights and the brake system and you are ready to drive the car. A very simple system to use. Nothing to install or remove when towing, just connect the cable from the motorhome to the car.

we are looking at a 07 vue. My question is did you get it for less than sticker price?

At the time I wrote the above we were still looking and pricing. We did finally buy on the 16th from Saturn of Arlington, Tx. We went to the Fort Worth dealer and he would not come off sticker price. The salesman, Chris Ross, we used at the arlington store got us a deal off sticker. Dont know how good it is but we are happy.

EDIT- just noticed that my sig line is now out of date. the 07 vue is now the toad and roadmaster is the bar.
