Default Got my Outlook!!!

Just got our special order Outlook XR w/Leather package. What can I say but I love this vehicle. Luxury with out the Luxury price. My neighbor has as Audi Q7 and could not stop checking it out and when I told her the price she was floored because her's was in the upper 40's and had nearly all the same features. We were driving down the road and a man in an olds bravada (old style) pulled beside us and gave a thumbs up. We have had lots of stares and even people that just peared inside and all that within 24 hours of owning it. Saturn hit a homerun and my Brother-in-law is sick that he went with the Honda Pilot (no comparison) back in January. Thanks to all of you on this web site it was so informative and really confirmed our purchase. I am a two time mini-van Mom that will never go back especially after the crossover Suv is so much more appealing.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You will continue to fall in love with it.

I parked next to a Honda Pilot tonight at dinner, it was no comparison as far as style goes.

What color is it?

Make sure to post some pics.

so the trans lag still needs to be addressed for vehicles on the lot or will some of the new ones be already updated? You would think they would fix the ones that they have in stock

For in stock vehicles, the new buyers will have to request the update.

Congrats and welcome to the love affair that is the Saturn Outlook.

If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend you get the chrome side step bars. They look awesome! Just got mine on this weekend.

I want them, but my wife doesn't want to pay the money. I know they would come in handy, and would look great.

She is more of a cheapskate than I. I guess there could be worse things in a mate.

we had the chrome step bars on ours and i had them take them off. they look awesome, but the suck functionally. with the relatively low step-in height, i have to stretch out over the steps when exiting. they are in the way and unneccissary! just my opinion though, like i said they do look very nice

I can see how they might be a problem for you getting out of the vehicle. My leg does hit them when exiting. My six year old couldn't get in with out them so they became necessary (and they look great!).

I totally agree. I have a six year old and it makes it alot easier for her to get in and out. My one gripe would be that I notice my lower pant legs get dirty when exiting the vehicle from rubbing on the bar. I don't find this to be a big issue since like you stated it does make the vehicle look much nicer. Also since the snow is over here i don't think the bars will get all that dirty anymore.

Farmasas:

It looks like you got the charcoal grey OUTLOOK..so do I and I couldn't believe the difference is made the vehicle look. The local dealership tried to charge me about $200 more (parts only-I installed them) than I had them shipped from saturnaccessories.com to my door. I also have small children (2.75 year old + -2 month -> due in may!) and my daughter loves the side step and could not get in with out it. If you want I will send you a picture...

I probably will talk her into it.
I have a 5 year old and a 2 1/2 year old. The 5 yo can barely make it in by herself.
I have one other purchase I have to make first and we have 3 big trips planned this summer.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind a pic if it isn't too much of a bother.

I've never liked the look of step up bars on SUVs and vans. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Those bars make a vehicle seem pimped out to me. Not my taste, so I'm curious to see the pics. I just don't need them to get into my vehicle and my kids are now teenagers.

We finally got "El Dorado," the lost Gold Mist Outlook, over the weekend and
had the dealer install the steps.

My 10yr had pleaded for them. Gives our Outlook a different "look" along with
a few other dealer options--mud guards and wind/rain/bug guards.
(All Saturn options--got a good deal.)

(Pictures were taken Sunday, before having the mud guards installed
They ran out of time Friday night.)
