Idea Current Outlook owners, im considering buying one used

Hello,
I came across this forum while researching Outlooks.
I'm wondering how many of you still have yours and how it has fared over time (quirks, problems, etc...).
I have seen several things listed like leaky sunroof, wave plate, timing belt , headlight issues.
I'm considering purchasing a 2008 Outlook XR with 111,000 miles that has a clean car fax.
I did not see any of the above mentioned issues reported in its service records which were all conducted mostly in one area per report.
I found it early July and had a test drive over several hours; had an inspection done at
Pep Boy's; they said it's in good shape from what they can see if hoses, belts, and other components.
I've been hawkeyeing it for 3 weeks now; originally was listed for 10,200, then dropped to 9,000 now it's currently listed for $8,500 as of 2 days ago (probably to boost end of month sales).
Please share any thoughts, comments and advice!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I would google ^^^^ in the Saturnfans search field for all the relevant TSB's and recalls, along with year and model, to get up to speed on all the stuff going on.

NOt sure about timing belt or chain on what you have your heart set on, so that maintenance issue may ( or may not) be an upcoming mechanic bill.
