FS: Tow hitch/wiring for Vue

Was on my RL for like a month, used a handful of times to tow my jetski. Never got around to installing the wiring for it, so a wiring harness (you'll have to splice it in) comes with it. I think...

Re: Heated Seats in a Redline w/ Ebony Package

The heated seats ended up working very well for a while. The circuit I used for power did trip a few times (I think because I had the power seats on it, or because I would sit on the seats with wet...

Re: Heated seat switch location

I mounted mine to the center part of the lower center console. It pops out on the early interior and is a great place for it.

Re: 2005 FWD Rear Disc Conversion

This is actually quite untrue, at least in performance vehicles. Both of my corvettes will NOT lock up the tires in dry situations with a full down brake stomp. The Redline typically will not, but...

Re: RL struts/shocks

The struts and shocks supposedly had different dampening for the RL. However, nobody makes anything that is model specific for the RL, so it's a moot point. KYB and Monroes are likely a little better...

Wheel hub replacement

So I have the dreaded shaking in the steering wheel that seems so common. I had an ABS light come on, so it seemed logical they were related, and I decided to replace the front hubs. Found a set on...

Re: Projector Headlights

I have my projector headlights out of the car right now (HID kit blew up). Someone make me an offer to take them off my hands before I order a new HID kit.

Te brakes aren't sticking are they?

Re: Vibration!!

AWD. Shakes from 77-85 or more. Makes a clanking noise. Goes away with steering input.

I'm thinking it's weird alignment issue, or hub/bearing related.

Re: Makes me sad

My Grand Cherokee was pretty good. The interior was fantastic - far better than anything GM has put out even today. I put 10k trouble free miles on it, and it got similar fuel economy to my Vue,...

Re: Really beginning to wonder.....

I think you're on crack thinking you'd get one that cheap. $4400 is actually a pretty good price for an AWD V6 Vue, though with NO ac at all that's certainly all the money for the car.

I think the...

Re: New speaker wire through door grommet

Whoever told you that it was necessary was lying to you.

First of all, it doesn't matter what your speakers are rated for. It matter what your amp puts out. And it only matters if you have your...

Re: need to get higher top speed

If we're actually going to have a discussion about using the Vue as a track car, I'm game, because it would save me a LOT of money to use my Vue as a track car.

jrw is right though, you'd have to...

Re: Interior

I'd swap the entire door, not just the door panel if you were going to try it.

That said, its a pretty major undertaking and will cost a good bit in time and money. It will add no value to the...

Re: Are Redlines programmed differently?

2005+ Redlines have a higher top speed limiter. All Redlines have quicker steering ratios. I doubt there's any engine tuning differences though.

Re: 2004 Vue T-boned, Salvaged or Fixed?

Maybe that's a Canadian thing. In FL, and I'm fairly certain NC as well, they have to use new parts to fix your car if you request them. They don't have to use OEM parts for certain things, like...

Re: 2004 Vue T-boned, Salvaged or Fixed?

I would insist on new parts, they can't legally make you accept used parts, so why would you allow them to.

Personally, I'd just let them write the thing off. At 150k, it's done its time, and if...

Re: Struts

The struts IMO suck. I've got KYBs on mine now, they're not bad.

My honest opinion is it goes under the column of "engineered to a minimum standard, not to last". I think just like the AC and...

Re: 1st gear sucks! what to do?

1st gear has massive torque management built in, and manually selecting it won't help.

Your two options are get some sort of tune (there are none on the market currently), or a standalone ECU, or...

Re: Transmission Fluid Change CORRECTION

I use the dipstick tube only because I don't want to mess around with the fill port. It takes a little longer, but it's much more convenient.

Re: Are we snobs???

Re: New thread on any updates on good tires and other parts

I'm still fond of my Michelin Primacy MXM4s. That said, I'm not as fond of them in snow/ice.

That said, there's a lot of options available now that weren't out there 4 years ago or whatever when...

Re: Repairing 06 Redline-Need parts

I'd say it was a mix of both. The RLs were Saturn's desperate attempts to stay relevant by chasing a younger buyer who was more into the sporty appeal. Needless to say, it didn't work, turns out...

Re: Would you buy a used Vue today?


It's not a particularly nice vehicle, but it gets the job done. It's loud, prone to some cheap parts breaking, and not particularly confidence inspiring in snow/ice. But it's cheap,...
