Just saw a new 09 model Saturn Vue XR V6 today. And with several SDC'ers painting their vehicles I thought I'd pass this along for your consideration.

While the Saturn Web site doesn't do it justice, you would need to see it in person. Sea Mist Green has that old drive in, car hop, 50's feel for ....well....an older car. Granted you need to like a darker aqua green. Check it out the next time you go by a car dealership, while it may not be your taste it does say 50's.

Not that this ones any better, it truely is a color that may need to be seen in person if one wanted it.

Now that the Saturns have gotten a little better looking, maybe I can venture in the showroom without my blinders on. ;)[}:)]

I have always wondered what designer would put a gash like this in the side of a car.

I will have to check that color out. The link looks almost like a williamsburg green on my computer. I hope they have sorted out the front bearing issue on those Vues since my '05 company car. The only green mine has seen is the dealership raking it in after the warranty ran out. 7 front bearings and one center.:(

They do look better, but being that they are a daewoo product, I'd probably avoid. Of course, that just my opinion.

I went to the Saturn dealership, but I didn't see any green cars. They were all silver, white, blue, black and red.

I did see this Volvo that is kinda blue green.
