How often do you load up more than 5 people for a long trip? It could certainly be valuable to a few people with large families that travel a lot, but certainly not a general advantage for the average person.

The real advantage that you forgot to mention is one that goes to the Pilot.. it doesn't depreciate anywhere near as fast as the Outlook (or any other domestic vehicle) will. That is the biggest problem I have with this pricing. I've already seen one and thought "wow, the first Saturn that actually looks like a real vehicle", but I would never pay anything over $30k for it. In a year it would be worth half of what I bought it for

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
