Happy Re: My 2008 XR (V6-AWD) Story...

GM7 - Thanks for your feedback! Yea - I am struggling a bit here. It is back at transmission shop due to leak from TCUM replacement.

Primary purpose of the car is for hauling Kayaks and not feeling bad about scratching it up. Frankly the car fits the bill... If I can live with the unknown cause of the [hesitations] and the heater core smell inside :-) Big plus is the 200 pound roof rating - it enables me to put two kayaks with a pair of Hullavators. The risk is my wife/daughter driving and getting stranded.

Yes - I am leaning toward a replacement, that said, Kayak season is about over in the upper midwest - I have time. I may try to sell (and swap) the tires/rims to another Vue owner - just to try and get some of that investment back.

The joys of ownership - Peace!
