Best SUV out there
By Shah on
2008 Saturn Outlook XE 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I love this SUV. I test drove MDX, Highlander, Pilot. This beast outperforms all of them in all fronts. I am very particular about every thing. This things gets good score on every thing. Interior is clean, easy, functional. Door paneling is excellent. Seat design and comfort is top notch. Better than MDX. Body fit and finish is great. Ride quality is great. Perfect balance of handling vs ride quality. Noise must be around 72 decibel at 70 miles. Curious if it gets even better with top quality tires. Back of the seat liners need better upholstery. Cup holders should have slots for mug handles, head rest position should be adjustable like BMW.
Good base radio speakers, XM radio, front visibility, ride quality, exterior styling front. Seat design. Engine low noise - read an article on its design, very impressed. Lambda platform. Six speed transmission, it is fine, this is not a rocket. Just accelerate slowly, your mileage will improve.
Front dash plastic feel. Third window wrap around look, Acadia window looks better.Bottom part/plate under front bumper? Must cause air drag? What is the purpose? Aluminum bumper wrap around like Vue? Roof rack sleeker less plastic? Little more silver on body side. 09 engine sound quieter than 08
