Default 2007 Vue Green Line

I'm looking at moving from my 1998 SW2 to a 2007 Vue Green Line. It has 19,000 miles and the asking price is $19,995 ... which seems reasonable given the premium these are going for. My question is, is there any reason not to go with this? Thanks for the advice.

Default Re: 2007 Vue Green Line

I bought my 07 Green Line about 15 months ago and it has been great so far. No problems and the plastic door panels saved me some money when a guy turned into me six months ago. He had damage and all it took was a buffing to fix me up. I'm nervous about the battery problems they had a while ago but it comes with a 7 year guarentee on the electric motor/batteries so I'm covered. My mileage has been 26 mpg in town and 28 on the highway. Not bad for an SUV.

Be sure to have the seller show you if the hybrid battery has been replaced per the emissions campaign. If it isn't, it's covered under the hybrid components warranty which is 8 years/100k miles. Be sure to have it done as the new battery eliminates corrosion issues on the old battery. There is also a campaign to install a wiring harness on the battery. If this isn't a Saturn dealer, it might be worth having the local Saturn dealer (if willing) search the VIN to see if these have been taken care of.

I'm not sure about the price or any premiums on the GL, but that might explain the $34k 2008 VUE GL I saw on eBay the other day.

What kind of driving do you primarily do? The BAS system seems to be most effective in moderate city driving and quite a bit on the open road. If you're mostly in the city, the BAS system doesn't seem to be as beneficial.

We average over 28 mpg in 25/75% highway/city driving. Mostly the car is used in the country and in town where we've been getting over 30 lately. We've seen over 34 on the highway and never less than 25, even in the dead of winter. My wife loves the car.
