The painted outside door handles may stick or bind, meaning the door may not latch when closed. If this were to occur, an unlatched door could open unexpectedly and an occupant not wearing a seat belt could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will replace the painted door handles with chrome door handles free of charge. The recall began August 19, 2009. The GM recall number is 09066.
GM has recalled 2,149 vehicles that may have been assembled with an incorrect steering knuckle on one or both sides. As a result, the tie rod ball stud could pull out of or fracture the tie rod housing, causing it to separate from the steering knuckle. If this happens, loss of steering ability can occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the steering knuckle and replace the knuckle and tie rod as necessary. This recall is expected to begin by December 8, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08389.
The power steering line connected to the power steering pump may have a nut that has loosened, possibly causing a power steering fluid leak. If the fluid contacts the hot exhaust components, a fire could start. Dealers will inspect the nut and tighten it. If a fluid leak is found, the fluid level will also be checked. The recall began September 26, 2008. The GM recall number is 08284.

We are experiencing Throttle Body Sensor problems. they want to clean and reset our throttle body sensor and charge us, we have 40,000 on this 08 Vue v6. and the extended warranty she said will not cover it... can anyone give us some help here. thanks
2004 to 2009 all was fine, great car. New transmission in oct 2009 (~1K), another in NOV 2009, and a third in Aug 2010 (4200), then AC died, now the computer module died and it will not start. GM parts now self-distruct and they no longer cover them. GM all my life, planning now on going toyota or mazda.
