I Love This Saturn — I have owned Porsches, Mercedes, Range Rovers and I love this car the best!!! The ride is very quiet and solid. It has a wide stance so it handles more like a car. The rear window is a little to high and the car wold benefit from a rear view camera but the parking assist does a nice job with both visual and audio alerts. The interior is very upscale...surprisingly upscale. The rear lift gate is power up and down. Be careful if you are parked in a garage the liftgate does come up pretty high. Fuel mileage is excellent at 24 on the highway. The interior room is HUGE...same cubic area as a Yukon!!

Great Family Suv — Excellent Reliablity, seats 8 people, great gas mileage for SUV of this size - beat the imports from Japan. 100,000 mile tune up saves us $900 vs. imports, no timing belt replacement another $700 savings. This is a great import from Michigan - drive one or one of the sister cars and you will be a beliver

Saturn — I like it. It handles like a car but has the room of a suv. It is ok on gas and pretty easy to clean. There is this squeak in the dash that drives me crazy some times but other then that not to bad. And the warrenty is great. I like the fact that you can shift gears yourself or not.

Sweet — Very good 8 passenger vehicle and added trailer hitch. Love heated seats and climate control. seats fold down without needing to remove for extra cargo room. XM radio is great for cross country trips. Love the OnStar with phone /directions

Very comfortable and roomy. Rides and drives well. A lot of features for the money.

Cons

Fuel economy. This thing isn't economical, even on the highway.

Nice Ride For The Money — Bought this after getting a call from a salesman who we had been working with looking for another make/model. He said that he had gotten in a very nice SUV that had most of the things on our wish list. Went in expecting not to like it but were won over. Lots of features for the price. Because the Saturn brand is gone, you can get a much better price than a comparable GMC Acadia or Chevrolet Traverse for basically the same vehicle. In a year of ownership we have only had two problems with this vehicle: A sunroof leak (which these are notorious for), cured by blowing compressed air through the right hand drain tube, and a failed water pump. The great thing about the latter is that water pumps on this model have been problematic so GM has covered them with an extended warranty to 120K miles - but you won't get it unless you ask. Mine was replaced for free by my neighborhood Chevy dealer.

Very Nice Suv — The first time i saw the outlook i fell in love with it. Its stylish, had plenty of room with the 3rd row seating, and it has better than average MPG getting 20+ on the overall average city and highway.

Ms — This car has a lot of leg room in the second and third rows. I have tall boys and they are very comfortable back there. I feel very safe in this car and it handle really well in the snow and ice.

Suv — I love my new SUV!!! It's totally loaded....I love sitting up higher, love the power liftgate, moonroof and skylight for the passengers in the back. It's the best and I am so happy we decided to purchase it. THANKS Honey!! The gas mileage could be a little better, but its not bad.

Great Ride. — It has a nice, smooth ride and it's interior is nice, not cheesey. It handles well around corners, and has 7-8 passenger seating. The exterior is very sharp looking. The gas mileage could be better. I haven't got the 32 mpg that the window sticker claims. Overall, I love it and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Amazing Value For A Car That Is This Large And Tows This Much Weight By bobkat

The Outlook is definitely a plus-size vehicle; in terms of dimensions, it just about matches those of a Chevy Tahoe. The 2007 Saturn Outlook gets its juice from a choice of 3.6-liter V6s that generate... Read More
