Default Highest Mileage CVT

It has been over 2.5 years since this thread

http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...ht=highest+cvt

Who has the highest mileage on their Vue CVT now (preferably awd ad that is what I'm looking at).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Wait, so you're actually thinking about buying a VTi equipped VUE?

It's a serious gamble. With most gambles, there is at least a chance of a reward, but, unfortunately, there is absolutely no reason to purchase a VTi VUE.

Default Re: Highest Mileage CVT

I had a FWD Vue VTI last 125,000 miles, the only VTI service was a fluid change with additive @ 100,000 miles.

I did a post mortem on it and the machined pullys and belt looked perfect (machined pulley surface showed no wear over entire pully range), I didnt have the tools to check fluid pressures but I suspect that might have been the problem (slipped after fluid got hot).

I threw in a spare low mileage engine and VTI transmission that I had left over from a Vue that I had converted to the AWD V6 drivetrain.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2006 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: Highest Mileage CVT

It got 103,000 out of my VTi AWD with 3 fluid changes spaced at 30,000 mile intervals.

It's not a case of IF the Vti will die, its a problem of when! I seriously HOPE you're not considering getting involved with one of those time bombs!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Highest Mileage CVT

My wife has a 2004 Vue with the VTI with about 25,000 miles on it and so far so good. (It'll probabaly blow up now that I said that). Our plan is that if we have to replace the tranny we will keep the Vue until the wheels fall off. If the tranny holds out, we will replace the Vue by Oct of 08 (when the 5 yrs run out).

We use it primarily for running around town and it is real easy for my wife to get in and out of it with her back problems. Besides, it has the handicap permit in it and it is easier to grab her keys on the week-ends when we are out rather than both sets of keys to get the placard out of her Vue. Besides, I put enough miles on my Vue during the week anyways.
