Default Thinking of buying an 03 Vue-things to look for

Hello,

I'm going to look at an 03 Vue tomorrow (V-6, auto, FWD I believe). It has 111k miles, timing belt/water pump done at 90k.

As I'm not familiar at all with the Vue are there any "typical" problem areas I need to look for?

This will be a 2nd/3rd car driven back and forth to work (about 6 miles each way) and the price seems right if it's in good shape.

Thanks for the help!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Honestly unless the price is "give away" as in only 2 zeroes at the end I'd steer clear. Hold out for one with the Honda drivetrain.

Walk away and pick up a Honda powered Vue OR four cylinder with a manual transmission. All others are unreliable IMO

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
