Re: Are there any E85 fuel stations near you?

There's one less than two miles down the road from me. Unfortunately, the price difference is less than 10% and doesn't make up for decreased MPG. I still buy occasionally, just to support, but I...

Re: 2004 2005 Cvt

I wouldn't say my mind is made up. More that I'm a little skeptical of what seems like mass hysteria on the CVT/AWD combination. Part of me feels that maybe there *was* a problem in the...

Re: 2004 2005 Cvt

I don't see the economics of the CVT in regards to production costs. I've read on this site that a rebuilt CVT ran $5500- and a new one $8000- or some ridiculous number. So is it an assumption that...

Re: 2004 2005 Cvt

Yep, I have found several 2004 and 2005 4 cylinder CVT AWD VUEs on Autotrader and cars.com. Some with date in Service of 2004 and mileage under 25,000 meaning a signifigant amount of the extended...

Re: Is a Retailer Who Pads the Price of the SKY Violating Saturn's Pricing Philosophy?

You can't have your cake and eat it too. Of course this is a violation of the no haggle price.

How hypocritical to think you can't haggle down but you can charge more.

So very sad. I'd like...

The center IP has kept me, too, out of an ION just as the motorized belts kept me out of an S when I was in the small new car market after graduating college in the early 1990's.

I, too, would've gone for the VUE first, but second choice is definitely gen 4 sc (qc?).
