My parents are blessed with a 2003 AWD VUE, 2.2L Ecotec with the CVT transmission.
Aside from the transmission issues it is beginning to have, it seems to be a rock solid vehicle. A call to Saturn resulted in a "it will cost 5K to fix, whatever it is" answer.
Are any of you aware people successfully swapping out the CVT for a regular 4-speed auto? I don't think going to a manual trans is an option...
I'm inclined to try and convince them to just dump it and move on, but that is easier said then done. I'll start scouring other message boards if I have to, but I figured I would come to the experts here first
