Just FYI

Re: Transmission cooler?

I'd say you're fine. I towed about that much from IL to VA through the mountains on one occasion.

I'd consider it if you plan on towing frequently and with near-max loads on long hilly trips..

Re: Trading in Nitro for Vue Red Line

As far as accident/tickets and red...Red is a common color and is on sportier cars. I'm sure if you look at modern numbers..more silver cars get tickets and in accidents..because everyone seems to...

Re: THAT light

I'm wondering if the indicator is somhow mandated.. since every vehicle I've seen has it.

I'm guessing the reason is something to do with car seats or small children? At least with the manual...

I don't buy the whole Zaino is the best and the rest stink thing...It's too much like Amsoil hype.

Re: 2.4L FWD gas mileage

Higher Altitute -> Thinner Air -> Less Fuel for the air:fuel ratio...unfortunately less power..

I noticed this on a motorcycle trip in the Rockies.

Have you noticed any power loss?

Re: Consumer Guide Reviews the Vue XR

I'd be surprised to see a Toyota or Honda dealer haggle on price. The local Honda dealer told me the average time for a CRV on the lot is about 3 days.

Re: Consumer Guide Reviews the Vue XR

GM powertrains are very reliable, as reliable as any out there. I don't buy the better because it's a Honda. Honda had alot of transmission problems.

Bottom line is that yes, the 08 is improved...

Re: Loss of cargo space

My point is numbers are numbers and can be deceiving..the dimensions of the floor is what is important for dog crates. I could get dog crates to fit in the VUE that wouldn't fit in a Equinox ...

Re: dexcool...

It's not the best stuff out there, but if it was really that bad, there'd be alot more engine failures.

The leaks were caused by poor gasket design since it was only on a few engines.

Re: Corner lights

You can easily remove the cover of the clear corners and paint the edges flat black to match the 2002-2004s...just reseal it with some clear silicone

I ended up doing a medium tinting the whole...

Re: Does your Vue get praised?

A 2004-2007 V6er should be able to see their face for a bit...since they poo out at 108, unless you can break through the limiter with a downhill run :D

Re: Loss of cargo space

Congrats on the new VUE.

Did you try to put the crates in the 08?

I'm wondering how much of the numerical loss of cargo is from the more sloping tail.

Re: Insurance Rates for Vue Redline

Do they have a 1-800 number?

Or you can just get a couple of online quotes between your Ford and the Saturn..just to get an idea.

VUE insurance is pretty reasonable

I've even painted my motorcycle engine with it!

Re: Kinda Morbid Question...

As it has been said, the protection isn't in the skin. Sheet metal is so thin, that it really has very little protection when a 4000 protectile is coming at you.

Re: Some Reviews Starting to Come In

As far as mileage numbers.. remember to comparing new rules with new rules.

The new rules for 2004-2007 V6 are 18/25 for FWD, 17/24 for AWD

It only looks like a drop of 1 city and 1 highway

Re: Wow!!!!

My impression is that if you usually spec up your vehicles with options, then the price increase since many features are now standard.

Re: Waxing with Ice

The real advantage of Klasse AIO or Jeff Werkstatt's Prime is that it chemically cleans the paint. Another great paint cleaner is Meguiar's ColorX in the black bottle (it's not a colored wax)

I replaced my passenger light with a salvage pull off of ebay. Much cheaper than a new one

Re: keeping wheels clean

I use the car wash soap after I've done the body...any water spots..just use some Quick you would the paint.

Meguiar's has a new Quick Detailer for Wheels..I'm not sure how it's much...
