Remember that the Vue is a tow car. It probably has 15000 more miles on the wheels than the odometer says. Also being a tow car it gets bounced around more than if you were just driving it. About 2 years ago I started to wonder if I had a bad strut because of the sound it would make every time I hit any kind of bump. After towing it south last month, another 1400 miles, the drivers side front is really rattling with even minor bumpiness on the road.
When our mechanic suggested that I needed new struts is when my husband pulled out my list and told him that was one of my concerns. So since he only charges $50 and hour and does not mark up on parts it is probably a good time to replace at least the front ones.
