Good car overall - but recent transmission issues concerning
By jfazio on
2007 Saturn Outlook XE 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We bought this car brand new and have taken relatively good care of it.
Overall we like the drive, quality etc.
At 78,000 miles however the transmission tanked.
And we have researched online that this is a common occurrence.
This is about a $4000 repair.
Outside of the this, no other major complaints - but that's a pretty big one.
It drives well, we have just the front wheel drive and it handles nicely in snowy weather, and is comfortable for long drives.
Transmission problem at about 75,000 is a major concern.
