2004 Saturn Vue Bike Rack

I'm having trouble finding a bike rack that is confirmed to fit my vehicle. Non of the racks I have looked at have any Saturn vehicles listed. I know there are other GM models that have the same body as the Vue, but I'm not sure. Any help is appreciated.

I think it shared the same platform as the Chevy Equinox of that era.

If you go the Thule route I have the Saturn Vue Fit Kit feet, model number 1561 that I will send to you for the cost of postage. More information can be found here.

Are you looking for a roof rack or some other type of rack? Most hatch-mount racks are nearly universal. I use and recommend the Saris Bones. If your vehicle has a hitch on it you might investigate the numerous styles of hitch racks available.

I put a hitch on our 2006 Vue and use a hitch-mounted rack. Around $120.

Installing the hitch isn't too hard. Just 6 bolts, I think. If you do that, make sure the size will fit the rack you want.

I'll second the Saris Bones on a Saturn Vue. I used one to haul my bike from Michigan to S Dakota for a family camping trip. Worked great.

The Vue was the same platform as the original Chevy Equinox & Pontiac Torrent. The later Vue's with the Honda V6's were pretty good. cheers
