2005 VUE Red Line
Default the Over 200,000 mile club..who is joining me.

My 2005 RL rolled over 200k last week, who is joining me on the next quality control test? maybe I will get 250k out of her?! without any Majors.

I only changed the timing belt, and changed plugs in this vehicle since
I've driven it home from the dealer. its still rolling on original wheel bearings. Shocks and and Strut Links done, 50k ago, its been thru 7 New England winters, commuting 80 miles a day, during the work week, and all kinds of miscellaneous trips here there..etc. it still looks brand new, I am pretty amazed frankly.
How about you all, are your RL's holding up?..
only mods I have done are
synthetics in all cases, and a K&N FIPK...and 235 18's versus stock turanzas..
235's are Hankooks..

I am thinking that wheel bearings at all four corners will be next, and she should be good for another 50 k. ..My problem being, I cannot think of anything that I want to replace this car with, that performs the way this one does, and looks this good, for this long, I will run till I have to row it to make it move, no sense it trading it..it's probably not worth Jack..but it's a runner.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: the Over 200,000 mile club..who is joining me.

I'm 100K behind you (and with a different motor), but I sort of feel the same way. It suits me perfectly right now and have no intentions of replacing it. When we were shopping for my wife's new car (the Escape), I found myself comparing everything we were looking at back to my VUE- mpgs, fold flat front seat, price, split rear seat, size, visibility........ I'm not saying my VUE (it was her VUE at the time) is the greatest vehicle in the world, but what's currently on the market today didn't always stack up very well against it.

The Escape is nice- it feels nice and solid and it's quiet, but it's smaller and gets worse mileage (although there is a big drivetrain difference between the 2).

...
Not a Saturn.

2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: the Over 200,000 mile club..who is joining me.

My non-Red Line is at 186,000, but it doesn't get driven all that much. It'll probably take a couple of years to hit 200k.

My Subie, on the other hand, is nearing 240k.

Default Re: the Over 200,000 mile club..who is joining me.

I just sold my 02 2.2 Vue with 217 on the clock, but thats in km not miles
My 05 only has 130, so it will be a very long time if ever, considering I bus to work and only drive weekends.
