Default Re: 2008 Vue XE questions. 2.4 auto.

The 2.4 EcoTec IIRC is an updated version of the 2.2. The 2.4 should have an external accessory belt driven water pump and be far more reliable than the chain driven one on the 2.2. which seemed to have been the source of pretty common and disastrous engine failures.
Also the 2008+ is not the same vehicle. It is basically the European Opel Antara https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Antara and IMO a somewhat "nicer" vehicle than the older Chevy based version.
