HVAC Repaired

For some time, I felt that my a/c was not working right. It started cooling good but after about a half hour or more, the air temperature from the vents was not as cool as it should be. The problem...

Re: 08 VUE Wiper Trouble

Had the same problem too. Almost bought some aftermarket wipers but they cost too much. Did some comparison between the smooth wiper operation on my Prius and the choppy, noisy wipers on the Vue. The...

Re: XR Has '08 KIA Rondo For Garage Partner

:) Same impression I had when the Venza came to town. The price is keeping me from buying one right now.

Re: 2008 XR heating problems

Re: 2008 XR heating problems

BWXR,
I showed the service manager that when the heat is set for Auto/Auto, the heat goes to the windshield, the floor, and the side windows (the defrost position). It does this no matter what the...

Re: 2008 XR heating problems

Re: New A/C Problem

I agree with you that new cars do come with some kind of problems that may or may not be fixable by the manufacturer. However, I am not loyal to one brand of car. One of my pet peeve when it comes to...

Re: AC/Recirculated Air Smell

Perhaps the condensation is not properly draining to the outside of the vehicle. Look under the vehicle, just behind the engine, and see if water is dripping to the ground. When the vehicle has...

Re: OnStar Renewal Anyone?

We did not renew. Too pricey, phone had trouble recognizing our voices, phone cuts out when either party interrupts the other while talking, don't need the turn-by-turn navigation - we always use a...

Re: Saturn Vue Hybrid Has a Lot to Offer

Since I had several flat tires in the past, the spare tire is an important issue to me. I have an 08 Vue XR. I don't want to be totally dependent on OnStar, or AAA, to send help for a flat tire...

Re: Saturn Vue Hybrid Has a Lot to Offer

Apparently, one of the "standard features" that we take for granted is that the vehicle we buy comes with a spare tire and jack. The Vue hybrid I looked at two weeks ago was very appealing until my...

Re: Air Conditioning with a mind of its Own

Yes, in a way it does have a mind of its own. Starting in July 2007, the A/C has been a frustrating issue with me. But I have a workaround plan to make the A/C a non-issue today. Now when I turned...

Re: certain instrument lights stay on?

Those two lights do come on when you unlock the doors, either by using the key or the fob. When the doors are locked, the lights stay illuminated for about 15 minutes before they go out. If you...

Re: Just bought an 08 XE AWD

I believe the A/C in the XE AWD is not the automatic climate control version. I would like to know from the XE AWD owners what they think of the A/C in their Vue.

Re: No 5-Speed Manual Planned for '08 Vue

Driving on the freeway in 6th gear at 60 mph. Came to a gradual incline in the road. Did not want to downshift yet (for better MPG). It downshifted by itself and then upshifted like normal. Still on...

Re: No 5-Speed Manual Planned for '08 Vue

I do not like it . Although I have full control of when to upshift, which I like, the downshifting part was a disappointment. The manual says that the transmission will not downshift to the next gear...

Cabin Air Filter

Well, I finally managed to remove the glove box with some cautious prying. The air filter fits pretty tight in its holder and required the use of a needle nose to remove it. It was pretty dirty but...

Re: Vue Feature List: "Must Fix" / "Wish List"

Here's my list.

Must Fix:
1. Option to turn off the A/C compressor in the Recirc mode.
2. Easier way to remove the glove box without prying it out.
3. Smoother and quicker downshifts.
4....

Re: '08 Vue Driver Information Center info

I verified that the tire pressure monitoring system does work by doing the TPMS Sensor Matching Process to match the tire/wheel position to the sensor. The how-to in the manual is accurate.
