Re: 2006 Vue Sunroof Seal

For sunroof issues, the body shop outsources to a third party specializing in sunroofs including custom installs. I have used them for some other work and they are really good and always thorough....

Re: 2006 Vue Sunroof Seal

An update on the continuing saga (which I hope is now over). Car went back in the shop to get dried out. I had 4-5 gallons of water which I vac'd out of the driver and passenger front foot wells...

Re: Transmission Problem?

While not the same issue, but for the sake of comparison, my local GM dealer quoted me 4500 to replace the 6T70 in my 08 Vue, 4900 to rebuild. That was last July. We ended up trading the car as GM...

Re: Headliner drooping

Go to your local fabric shop and for fabric glue. It will survive washing and works quite well. Had to use it on both of my Vues several years ago and it is still holding. One word of caution, it may...

Re: Vue 3-5R wave plate

Oscar,

Based on the numbers the prior poster listed, I doubt GM will. I went up the chain on mine and they wouldn't even help. I was 4 days outside the 10 year window based on the day we did the...

Re: Front dome light cover

You may also want to look at Captiva parts? I know one example is the rear wiper. Could never find one for the Vue, but the Captiva had the same fit.

Re: 2008 vue no heat

fdryer,

Did the OP mention which engine or model she has? Didn't the early XE also have some issues/recall/campaign with the heater cores? I have a friend who had one that was recalled for the...

Re: Never saw this before

Have you looked at the flasher module. I have seen variable blinker speed when the module was starting to go. Just a thought.

Re: Buying a 2008 VUE. What to look for?

The only major thing I knew of on the 2008 Vue was the 6T70 transmission wave plate issue on the 3.6L engine. Other than that, it is pretty much a rock solid, typical Saturn. Enjoy your Vue.

BTW,...

Re: Schrader Valve a bit leaky

Our mechanic who has worked on both of our Vues for quite a few years will replace the Schrader valve as part of an A/C service if they have to evac the system. He feels there is too much of a chance...

Re: Headliner

My wife used some fabric glue to stick ours back up into place. Been about 2 years, and it is still holding.

Re: 2008 Vue XE questions. 2.4 auto.

Some of the early 2.4 08s had a heater core issue which was fixed with a recall/service bulletin when the vehicle was brought in for routine service. I had several friends with this model and it they...

Re: Vents Not Adjusting According to Setting

Just a stab, not sure if this is related to your issue or not as I got a little lost in the prior posts.

On my wife's 06 Vue (3.5) we had problems with the air flow not going to the correct place...

Re: locked keys in vue and its in neutral

Couple of options - if you have onstar, call them and see if they can do a remote unlock. (Had to do that once). Another idea is to call road service and say you locked the keys in the car. A slim...

Re: Headliner sagging

We had the issue on our 06 and 08 Vues at the front by the windshield. My wife fixed it with fabric glue and a couple of strips of fabric adhesive to hold it in place while the glue dried. Been two...

Re: "spark or flame could explode battery" warning light

Re: A Saturn owner no more

Yep, you are lucky you are in the window.

One thing I can say is the local dealer has gone over and above helping us get into a replacement vehicle. Funny thing, they had a typo on the window...

Re: Check Engine, TCS lights, won't shift

Bring it in. They should honor the warranty.

They go by date of purchase, not delivery. I was off by 4 days based on purchase but inside the window based on delivery and have all the...

Re: A Saturn owner no more

Welcome to the club. Down to one, my wife's 2006 Vue. Said goodbye to my 08 Vue when the tranny went last month. Picked up a used 2015 Ford Fiesta.

Re: GM Saturn Customer Assistance Success?

I got $500 for mine with a dead tranny. It also was going to need new tires (next year had I kept it) and it had 89900 miles on it. I figured $500 was at least something (especially on a trade for a...

Re: P0700 Code and 6T70 Transmission

I most likely won't buy another GM after 7 Saturns. My wife( Cathy) wants to get a Ford Taurus a little further down the road. We had one back in the late 80s and 90s and she really loved the ride....

Re: P0700 Code and 6T70 Transmission

To close the loop on this saga. Seeing as GM refused to budge on the replacement, we ended up trading the Vue in on a used car.

The dealer had a 2105 Ford Fiesta with low miles and in great...

Re: P0700 Code and 6T70 Transmission

Got the word back from GM on my tranny issue - sorry, but you are on your own. The date they used is a hard cutoff as it is a "special program" vs a warranty. The senior advisor even went back with...
