2007 Saturn Outlook XR 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Writing in after being outraged at a $3000 timing chain replacement, most of it 17 hours of mechanic's labor. Come on GM, timing belts and chain replacement are as given on a car as is the tires. Why would you approve a design that requires dropping the engine to replace them! On a Honda or other Japanese car, it's $400-500 event. Not so for GM. I bought the 07 new. I haven't had a great deal of trouble, like some here who have all kinds of failures. But there were some: the lift gate which has a complicated motorized latch, failed so that it remained unlatched while driving. There was simply no way to hold it shut. Dangerous! Then it was $400 to have that fixed. All electrical.

Favorite Features

Ample seating. Feels solid, even after 7 years ownership.

Suggested Improvements

Engineer the products with owners in mind. Pay attention to cost of ownership when the car is no longer brand new.
