I purchased my VUE new in 6/2002 for my wife. It became mine later and it has been very reliable/ no major problems. I average 22-23 MPG (50/50 CITY/HWY). The only problem we had was the belt tensioner froze at 30K/ replaced at no charge w/ a new belt. Very good in the snow and handles like a sports car.
