So long and thanks for all the fish!

The time has come to say farewell to you all. Last night, my wife and I traded my beloved '06 Vue in on a '17 Kia Niro. FWIW, the Vue was still running (204,000 miles!) and we just took it to the...

Hit a milestone this morning

2006 V6 FWD purchased brand new. I've done all routine maintenance myself, and it still pulls a 7 second flat 0-60! On to 300,000!

Re: 31 MPG in a V6?

You can claim it's dubious all you want. I check at every fill up for mpg, and I know what I saw. It's a simple formula of miles/gallons to full.

Re: 31 MPG in a V6?

Honestly, I don't know! I've been in the process of buying a house and haven't had time to get the code read. I moved in yesterday, and I have a proper garage again, and will get on it asap.

Re: 31 MPG in a V6?

Once the gas pump auto shuts off, I keep filling until it won't hold anymore.

We came home yesterday and got 30.2 mpg! Both trips I ran the a/c about half the time.

31 MPG in a V6?

Has anyone else gotten this kind of mileage before? It has 175,000 on the odometer, and I've never taken a trip this long on the Vue before. Here are the trip details:

Drove from Cary, NC to...

Hit a deer yesterday

And in broad daylight nonetheless (2pm). I was only going 35mph, so there was minimal damage-but it was a pretty big deer. Anyone know where to get a cheap headlamp assembly?

What just fell off of my car?!

I was driving along about 45 mph, and heard a noise like I ran something over-but I didn't hit anything. I look back and see this in the road:

Re: 2004 Saturn Vue Radiator Drain Plug?

I wish I had read this before I did a coolant flush. My drain plug is pretty much stripped all the way, and I can only tighten/loosen it with a quarter. :dizzy: It is also leaking a little bit after...

Re: Changing Antifreeze - 2006 Vue 3.5

My flathead screwdriver wasn't wide enough I guess. I got it off with no problem, but it won't let me tighten it. I ended up using a quarter to tighten it, but now it is leaking ever so slightly when...

Re: Changing Antifreeze - 2006 Vue 3.5

Any tips for dealing with a stripped petcock? I can't find anything to get it tight, and 50/50 is slowly dripping out :(

2003 Vue with Honda engine?

This poor guy has no clue what he's talking about. He even shows the 3.0L in the video! Love the 'composition' door panels :rolleyes:

Re: I debonged my 3.5!

Oops-I was looking at the pics on my teeny tiny Blackberry screen. I think I am going to leave it like it is. That setup looks like it would just needlessly draw water up into the intake.
