I beleive the 4 cyclinder Vue has a 1500 lb tow rating and the V6 Honda engine has a 3500 lb tow rating.
You are correct on the tow rating at 3,500 lb for the Honda V-6. Also the Honda V-6 EPA highway mileage is 28 as compared to 27 for the 4 cylinder with automatic transmission.
What I really wanted to know, is there anyone out there that has one, and how do they like it for towing, and all around driving? The 2005 also has the Honda V-6.
With those ratings it looks almost too good to be true. And the old saying goes, "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is". Maybe not in this case.
