After discovering that purchasing a vehicle is the worst investment, I spent months looking at the same VUE (or very similar equipped) on different auto lots. I wasted time fighting with car salesman, running numbers, and looking at vehicles that were not any where near my price range, until I smartened up, and gave it back to them. I began car shopping on Saturdays when hot dogs were free.. lol.
The Vue is a great vehicle, its stylish on the inside, the new body has a sleek new look, and so far seems to be very reliable. The 06 models are equipped with Honda engines (a plus), I am interested in longevity and low maintenance, which as well seems to be in my favor. Its great in the weather (previous mustang owner) FWD certainly makes a difference! A V6 engine on the compact SUV gets pretty decent gas mileage, which is another reason I leaned toward the Vue. I am happy with my new car, so far proving to be everything I was looking for. A bigger, reliable, weather proof, low maintenance, lower costs in gas, good looking vehicle! I love it.
