For Sale: 2006 Saturn Vue w/ Rocket Box ($2,500) in Panama or Costa Rica (US Plates)

Our beloved Saturn Vue, Turtle, is not going to make the return trip to the US with us (too damn expensive to ship). We're hoping to sell it between now and the end of June.


  • Price: $2,500 (negotiable, our main goal is to cover the cost of import taxes to sell the car)
  • Location: Costa Rica or Panama. Could get the car to Nicaragua if needed, but we'd rather not. We're currently in Panama.
  • Dates: Available now, must sell by end of June. 


  • 2006 Saturn Vue
  • White
  • Roof rack
  • Thule roof rack (rocket box)
  • USA license plates (Colorado)
  • New brakes and shocks (Costa Rican mechanic, done 3/28/19)
  • Tires replaced in December in Mexico, Bridgestone
  • MISSING sway bar - car drives fine without it
  • Donut spare tire
  • Seats 5 comfortably
  • Consistent oil changes and maintenance
  • 180,000 miles (+/-)
  • The car actually has a Honda Pilot engine and should run for a long time more.
  • OPTIONAL really nice subwoofer (my boyfriend is super into music, it's quite nice) - extra $500 for that baby.
  • BONUS: Power inverter to charge phones + laptops + whatnot
  • BONUS: Steering wheel lock to deter theft
  • BONUS: Magnetic phone holder for navigation/tunes/podcasts
  • BONUS: Nat geo waterproof, tear-resistant maps of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

The car is not really set up for sleeping, but it's been really great for city-hopping and survived the terrible roads of Baja California (and Guatemala, and everywhere else) without too much trouble.

Video proof of us surviving Baja with the car:
