I installed a Tekonsha P3 in my truck and would recommend it.

P3. Works flawlessly. Just returned from a 5 week 7800km roadtrip throught the western states and it worked great in all types of road conditions.

Update: thanks for all the information. I have gone ahead and ordered the rest of the stuff I need for the electrical for the 2008 Vue including the Prodigy controller. I think I will pay a visit to the Saturn dealer and ask to look at the electrical schematics for the Vue before I start the full installation. It certainly looks like there are fuses (and wires?) in the car already for trailer wiring so I want to check that out before I go ahead toooo far. Should be interesting.

Again thanks to everyone for the input - concensus certainly seems to be that new generation of proportional, deacceleration sensing controllers are the hot setup and the way to go.

Paul,

I still don't have my Prodigy set to my satisfaction. I couldn't tell the difference between 4.7 and 6.4. Haven't had any problem braking though. Just wondering where you have your P3 set. I presume it is the trailer weight that is the determining factor.
