Re: Different transmission issue.

Bought the '09 RAV4 sport, traded my '08 Vue in on it. They gave me $10,500 trade in, I ate a few grand but thought it was fair since I wanted to get rid of it. Got the RAV4 w/41k miles for $19,500...

Re: Different transmission issue.

Well, as much as I love my Vue XR I think I am going to get rid of it for something more reliable. It scares me that the dealer cannot find the problem with it slipping in reverse, and the warranty...

Re: Different transmission issue.

Got the Vue back from the dealer yesterday, they could not replicate the problem of it slipping in reverse. I did get the work order from the previous service when the trans was rebuilt. The 3-5-R...

Different transmission issue.

After I had the 6T70 transmission in my '08 Vue XR rebuilt, it has had an intermittent problem slipping in reverse. It doesn't do it every time I drive it, it might be every 3rd or 4th time I start...

Re: How much is 2008 VUE worth

I have a buddy that has a new equinox. He originally got the direct injected 4 cylinder but did not like it. It NEVER got the advertised 32mpg either. He said it was kind of a dog around town, would...

Re: VUE is at GM dealer. 6T70 Transmission 3-5 wave plate on it's way out.

There are clutches inside the automatic transmission, the clutch plates are what the wave plate are next to so I can see a broken wave plate taking a clutch plate with it. At least you got a loaner,...

Re: VUE is at GM dealer. 6T70 Transmission 3-5 wave plate on it's way out.

Since they have to completely rebuild the transmission I would expect it to be $2k plus. I had mine rebuilt around memorial day for this problem but it was under warranty.

Re: 2008 Vue XR FWD 3.6L 6 speed

Sounds like a wheel bearing, that is the first place I would look. When turning you are loading the bearings differently and the fact that the growl changes when turning makes me think wheel bearing.

Re: 2008 Vue XR loses all gears....temporarily

No, the tranny was rebuilt to perform the wave plate repair. My tranny started acting up before any work had ever been done to it(wave plate failed), it has been performing fine since the repair. All...

Re: 2008 Vue XR loses all gears....temporarily

Mine had a similar issue when the wave plate failed, P, N and I believe 6th gear. Would not downshift, no manual control and would leave a light in 6th gear. After sitting for an hour or so, it would...

XR or XE? Mileage? condition? there are a lot of variables.

That was the part that they were waiting for. When I picked it up they had not typed up the paperwork(they finished it at the end of the day and didn't want me to have to wait another day), they are...

Re: Strange 6T70 transmission behavior

Picked it up on Wednesday. No charge, still under warranty. Shifting seems normal again. Happy with the dealer service. Life is good again.

Re: How Long Did your Stock Tires Last?

I am going to be looking at either BFGoodrich Long Trail or possibly Michelin Energy Savers as both are much quieter than these Bridgestones in my experience. I find the Duellers far too noisy on...

Re: Why no aftermarket REAR wiper blade for 08-10 Vue???

There are many different vehicles that use rear wipers, some of them must use a blade of a similar size. I may even buy a longer refill and cut it down if it comes to that.

Re: Why no aftermarket REAR wiper blade for 08-10 Vue???

I have replaced the blade assembly with the factory replacement (crap), it is easy, the ease of changing it is not the issue. You just grab the blade and unsnap it, you don't need to remove the arm...

Re: Why no aftermarket REAR wiper blade for 08-10 Vue???

I wouldn't mind getting the whole blade, would be easier to change but if I could get better quality refills that would be okay too. I had not tried to find 10" refills. What brand refills did you...

Re: Why no aftermarket REAR wiper blade for 08-10 Vue???
