Default Any Tip/Info on the '07 Vue I'm about to Buy?

The Vue I'm buying is from a co-worker. It's a 2007, 2.2L FWD 4 speed, and has 168,000 miles on it.

I've been a little hesitant because I've heard a lot of bad things about Vue's. Specifically the transmissions. And in my research, it seems like all the FWD V6's have this issue, and not so much the i4's.

But I'm not even sure about that as most of the information I can find comes from posts ten years ago.

So if anyone has information to determine if this car will last me until I can purchase my next car I'd be grateful.

*I should note that I work on cars a lot and most repairs don't scare me. But when it comes to transmissions and engine overhauls... I'm terrified

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The plain ol' automatic transmissions behind the 2.2 in 2007 are fine - it's the early model years 2002-04 CVT transmissions that are junk. With the Ecotec 2.2 and an automatic, that Vue is basically the same as a Cobalt/ION/Malibu/G4 under the hood. Oughta be fine as long as the timing chain is in good shape. If it isn't, that's a $150 repair if you do the labor.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
