Awesome thread necro.
You can get parts for the Vue and Outlook at any GM dealer. The Vue and Outlook share probably 95% of their parts with the Equinox and Traverse.
My wife drives a 2008 Vue Redline. It's a great, great little SUV. Second hand they should be a steal. Only issue is resale, but if you plan on keeping it for a while, you'll probably be fine.
