Default Highest mileage on a VUE

Who has the highest mileage on a VUE? I've seen incredible numbers from S-series and ION owners, but no benchmarks from VUE owners.

I'm currently driving around 6600 miles a year...

I had 60,007miles on my vue when she was totaled. The way I loved to drive her, I would have prolly made it to 75k by now, but I know their our vue owners with more than that out there. I heard of a vue owner at 200k miles, saw a picture of him, but never met him.

My Vue only has 45,000 KM on it, so I mean it's got ways to go, but I change my oil every 5000 and replace air filter every 15000. I also do my own maintenece so the car will last me a while.

2005 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: Highest mileage on a VUE

2005 4cyl/stick

It had 25000 when I bought it in July, now at 33000.

I drive about 20,000 per year, hopefully it will have 200,000 when I'm done with it.
Resale isn't a factor for me, I drive em until they are used up.

Maybe 50000 kms on my 4 cyl 5 speed. But this has been a very trouble free ride. Just change the oil and add gas.

Glad to hear it's still running! I guess the VUE isn't as bullet proof as the S-series were.

Default Re: Highest mileage on a VUE

To add to BobbyP's thought, I wonder what the highest mileage Honda powered Vue is. The Ecotec and the manual 5 speed are both proven performers and I suspect they will have the highest mileage counts, but I wonder how long these Honda engines, and perhaps more importantly, transmissions, will last.

Default Re: Highest mileage on a VUE

Honda didn't solve their automatic transmission problems until 2005. I read that there was a class action suit against them on the earlier versions.

The 3.5L engine has always been a gem. I'm more concerned over the other known weak spots of the VUE.

Time will tell whether or not the VUE holds up in the long term. The VTi disaster will continue to be a black cloud over the VUE's relatively good reputation.

Thumbs Up Re: Highest mileage on a VUE

117,000 miles. 2003 v6 fwd. I love my VUE! Runs excellant.

As Wolfman says... change yer oil!!!

As daldyc has a 2002 I figure I got high mileage score.
