Description: This has been my hobby car since I purchased it in 2006 (I'm original owner) but recent business & personal circumstances require I get van. And, I just don't have time to spend on it like I used to.

Only 33,3xx miles - 3.5L V6 (Honda J35) with 5 speed auto & AWD

This Vue has always been garage kept. Has "never" seen snow or salt and has even rarely been driven in the rain. I was always curious how the AWD would do in the snow but I always had other cars/trucks in the past.

Since 500 mi its run Mobil 1 w/ Purolator Pure 1 oil filter & filter mag

Gas Mileage: For about two years I've had a dash mounted ODBII gauge called an Ultra Gauge. It provides all kinds of real time, performance, average and historical info on car functions. This VUE averages 20/21 mpg around town on a routine basis (with just regular driving, not trying to be conservative) and if I hit the cruise control at 70 on the highway it'll run very close to 30 mpg. Basically, it gets very good mileage.

Original tires have plenty of tread and wheels look like the day I drove it home. Zero pitting, spots or curb rash.

Mods (this is not your grandmother's Vue)

* Removed the passenger's side fog light and fabricated a large aluminum duct straight into the airbox. It looks factory stock. K&N (of course) in the original airbox
* Bored throttle body. Matched intake manifold to the larger throttle body. Disconnected throttle body heater tubes.
* Outlaw Engineering thermal spacers for intake plenum and throttle body. They had to custom fab the TB spacer which turned out great.
* Cleaned up and port matched the plenum runners then dowel pinned the plenum, plenum spacer, thermal spacer, and gaskets for optimal alignment. Alignment can potentially be WAY off between all the pieces.
* Two Magnum Tuning performance O2 sensor gizmos. One for each bank of cylinders. Great cheap mod.
* 4 inch ID all silicone air box to throttle body intake tube. It wasn't cheap or easy, but it works great.
* EBC Dimpled and slotted front rotors with Hawk LTS pads
* Earl's DIY braided stainless front brake lines. Much shorter than OEM rubber lines. Much more responsive braking.
* Speed bleeders all around
* RV6 Performance V3 cat deletes
* Magna Flow cat back. Can hear it but not too loud at all. Sounds great on the VTEC.
* Ralco RZ underdrive pulleys
* Eibach's all around (just a bit lower than the original Redline springs)
* Sound Stream double din DVD, four Polk 6.5 inch 2-way & 10 inch self-powered sub.
* Extensive sound dampening in door & rear side panels and interior floor (primarily used home carpet padding)
* Philips HIR Halogen bulbs (HIR1 9011) in main headlights
* 30mm 2001 Lincoln LS front swaybar w/ Energy Suspension urethane bushings.
