08 Outlook How do I really feel........

Love at first sight, 08 Outlook XR, bought Oct. 08.
Now 26,500 miles later, and out of warranty except on the powertrain, the nitpicking problems arise.
Of course the dealer has NO sympathy, and wants to charge the big bucks to handle the issues. Surely the last GM product I'll ever own.
Power steering groan. Dealer serviced, and forgot to check/top off unit. I fixed it myself.
Current problems:
Liftgate pistons can't hold up a bag of feathers.
Radio won't shutoff when ignition switch is turned off,and door is opened.
Headlight switch has fallen apart.
Several other intermittent electrical problems.

Re: 08 Outlook How do I really feel........

the liftgate struts--- you should be able to swap those easily.
the radio shut off-- most likely the door switch- youd have to remove the door panel... something I would try to fix myself. (having removed panels on my other cars for speakers etc).
Headlight switch- should be easy to pop on/off.

The items above should be easy to correct yourself.
