How many miles do you have on your Outlook?

Today, I finally passed 200,000 miles. The engine still runs as well as when I first brought it home new May 2007. It made me smile.
Here's to another 100,000 miles

Any major mechanical repairs on the engine? A/C?

Re: How many miles do you have on your Outlook?

I have over 181,000, Water pump, Power steering pump, 3-5-R waveplate transmission rebuild, Throttle Body, 1 Wheel Bearing, Both Struts and rear Shocks. All on my dime. Still love the truck.
Okay, add 2 rear hatch pistons, front hood piston, window switches. Oil pressure switch.
Milkshake in air intake, numerous stabilitrack / traction control messages and Numerous MAF sensors last winter.
The heated windshield washer fluid system was replaced with aftermarket unit, works great.
The headlight recall was performed by myself using an aftermarket, Standard brand part, the substandard Chinese wiring harness looks to be 20 gauge wire, talk about cost cutting.
I had to replace two TPS units on the winter tire set due to corrosion probably due to salt, stem fell apart in my hand, did all four just in case.

2009 w/ 140k. Same repairs as above, minus throttle body, but add: PCM, ECM, fuel injector (stuck open and fried Cat), fuel rail, Bank 1 Cat, 3 oxygen sensors, wheel speed sensor, 3 new window switches, Evap valve, new speaker, new rear wiper arm, new liftgate switch. Probably more but cannot remember offhand. This has been one of those vehicles that is great when running, but a nightmare otherwise. Looking back, these Lambdas were originally engineered and cost-speced in the mid 2000's and appear that every possible cost saving (read cheapening) measure was taken with suppliers and assembly, across the board. GM knows well, all the problems with some of these systems. A goodwill gesture would have been bumper-bumper for 100k and full power train coverage for 200k or similar, given the known problems. I've spent more repairing non-standard wear items on this vehicle than all of my other vehicles combined.

The only saving grace is that once this dies, I'll be getting a Tesla and never worry about IC-related repairs again. Oh, and it will take over a lot of the boring parts of driving.

Here's to the future.

202,000 miles on 2008 XE here. 21.1 MPG highway recently.

I do use Chevron Techron each oil change and Marvel Miracle Oil occasionally in-between in gas and oil. I switched to full synthetic oil on second oil change. Used synthetic blend on first oil change per mechanic recommendation. Have only changed the oil when monitor showed <5%.

Currently: 2015 Traverse LT AWD in Blue Velvet Metallic with Black Interior & Dash. 20" wheels with Yokohama G055s. Dual Zone Air with Heated Seats. Bose Stereo (lame, will improve) with Rear Entertainment System. Aftermarket Hitch. OEM Roof Crossbars coming.

Previously: 2008 Outlook XE FWD in Midnight/Tan. Dual Air/Premium Stereo w/ Polk & Pioneer Speakers, Roof Rails, Aftermarket Hitch/Wiring. 239K miles -- 85% Highway.

Re: How many miles do you have on your Outlook?

291,000. Only major issue was the timing chain around 200,000-ish and a transfer case around 270,000-ish. Oh, the tranny is messed up and has been since around 130,000 which was a long time ago but GM waited until last year to release the recall...poor form on GM's part. All the other work I've done myself, brakes, struts, sensors, etc... and plan on changing the ignition coils this spring. Hoping to hit 350,000. Good luck!

2007 Saturn Outlook XE AWD; 300,000 miles and counting
