A bolt sheared off the exhaust due to rust and stress. Went to the dealership and they said that's what happened. There was some extra noise when the engine was started and accelerating. Took it to a muffler shop instead to fix. Cheaper.
Replace oil pan.
Bad cat con. Estimate was between $1200 amd $3000. So I traded the Vue in on a Chevy Captiva.
Engine pinging and knocking (dealer heard nothing of course and did not attempt any repair).
Ignition cylinder taken apart and lubricated due to the cylinder binding(Hard to start vehicle). EVAP Canister replaced due to small leak.
Never really had a problem with it. Some random emissions codes were popping, but reset made it go away.
Lingering check engine light after startup. Mechanic reported 4 misfire codes. Problem was present when vehicle was picked up.
Cross over gasket was leaking coolant and was replaced under extended warranty.
