Default Re: Looking at buying a 2004-2005 V6 Vue, what should I look for...?

I wouldn't be overly concerned about towing if you're willing to cut that small slot. Make sure you periodically dump and re-fill the transmission with fresh fluid. On a FWD VUE, that's usually the weak link in the drive train. On a AWD VUE, it's the RDM unit in the rear (with bearing failures between the two halves of the drive shaft to the rear being a close contender).
