Nice looks, poor quality
By jswig on
2008 Saturn Outlook XR 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
The Outlook looks very nice. This is the reason my wife and I decided to purchase this vehicle. We didn't know they had lots of problems. Have had wheel bearings go bad at only 65,000 miles. Have leaks around the sunroof, back rotors replaced, various exterior lights not working, and now at 74000 miles the transmission is bad. This is very common with this vehicle. Buyers beware, do plenty of research first. I'm only writing this to help others out so they don't find themselves in the same situation I'm in. Go with a newer Ford or Honda --- trust me. You don't want a vehicle from a company that had to get the bailout.
Better fuel economy. The quality of parts used throughout needs to be better. The transmission is definitely the biggest failure with these vehicles.
