Thumbs Up Buying 06 Vue Redline - NY

Hey guys - I'm buying a 2006 Redline tonight, I've been doing a ton of research lately, and most of my info I've been getting from this site, so I figured I'd join! It's got 155,000 miles, but I got the guy down to $3,000 and he's an older gentleman who really takes care of his vehicles.
I've got a lot of good info, but I'll probably have more questions soon (already figured out the roof rack situation, but can't seem to find any new floor mats).

I've always been a Honda kid, still have 2 Si's, and got really excited when I found out some of the V6 Vue's have J35 powertrain and drivetrain! I've been looking at CR-V's for reliability, and was shocked when I came across the V6 Vue's with J35's - they're so much cheaper because of the Saturn name, and I think they look better.

I'll post up some pics when I get it!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome to saturnfans.com and congrats on your upcoming purchase! I believe that Redline Vue's are all AWD so that should be good for those snowy Rochester winters. It's a nice city. My Dad was born there.

One thing to watch out for is the catalytic converter or CATCON. I had to get rid of my second Vue last year because I had to put about 2K into it to pass inspection. Then the CATCON went out right afterwards. To replace it along with the other expenses would have been more than my Vue was worth.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Checked out the cat and it looks good; the whole exhaust system as a whole looks great for the car having 159,000 miles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
