When pulling to a stop the engine makes a racket - likely due to loose belt tension. I took it to the dealer and they agreed (confirmed?) That it is the belt tensioner. They say it needs to be replaced. The part looks to be on the order of $25-$50 on-line. They are quoting $795 to complete the repair. This sounds like 10 different kinds of fishy. What would you think it should cost to replace the belt tensioner on a HYBRID Vue circa 2007?
