Default Re: 2008 VUE Red Line and Green Line Info and Photos

I'd like to see the 2007 and 2008 side by side in person. I expect some QC problems in the beginning, especially with all the problems Buick had with the Rendezvous's quality.

What have you heard? I never heard of any Rendezvous production quality issues. (Except for quality of materials, but that's something any GM car including Saturn has had until recently.)
Similarly, I never heard anything bad of the Pontiac Aztek and quality issues (other than aforementioned cheap materials), as well as the styling.

I can't say I have any inside information, but I just don't get where people always say they want to wait a year or two before buying a new vehicle because of 'quality controll' problems or to let them 'get the bugs out of the new design'.

I'm sure some newly redesigned vehicles have problems...just like vehicles in their 3rd year of production do also. But the tales of massive problems with first year run vehicles are more products of the 70's and 80's. I'm not accusing anyone of this..but when I hear someone say they don't want to get the first year of a newly redesigned vehicle..about half the time it is someone who has the older model and is trying to convince themself they still have a good product.

My 1985 Olds Calais was a first year car and it was the best car I ever owned. The mechanicals were already proven from other GM cars before 1985.

It's like the Japanese they usually stagger the powertrain and body updates. Installing proven mechanicals in a new body or chassis. What a great idea that GM already did in 1985... Why do we forget proven ideas?

Production of the 2008 Vue begins mid-april. Dealerships should receive them no later than first week of june. Pricing is still not available, but expect around 2K more than what they are going for now.
