Re: Sunroof

Same for the US. I find it very hard to believe that your dealer has not heard of this problem except that they are not supposed to advertise it. This has been a problem across all three lines although it was supposed to have been corrected for newer 08's. What year is yours and what was the build date? That info will help other owners depending on their build date.

Re: Sunroof

I am sorry that there are so many people having the same issues. Thankfully my 2007 Outlook was replaces with a new 2008 and I hope they have corrected the proble because I really like my sun roof. Hope they fix this issue quicky.

Re: Sunroof

I have the same problem with my 2008 Outlook....I had it in 4 times and they couldnt find it. I told them about this topic and they said it wasn't from that. Then they called me after I brought it in again an said it was from the drain of the rear skylight. I have been in contact with Saturn customer care and lets see what I can get out of this.

Re: Sunroof

We're thinking of getting an 09 Outlook with a sunroof. Can anybody get GM to correct this problem in their assembly line so that the 09s don't have this problem? My 02 Yukon has never had a leak from the sunroof. It seems ridiculous that GM doesn't care about making some changes in their assembly process to eliminate this problem. You know customer service is a great thing! Hope all you people get your leaky sunroofs fixed properly. But you got to wonder what damage has been done to the interior hidden components of your vehicles. Good luck!

Re: Sunroof

Scarpi, I'm in the same boat as you (more or less). Planning on ordering an 09 Outlook and REALLY don't want to deal with a leaky sunroof. I've had plenty of sunroof vehicles in the past and never a problem. That technology can't be that hard.

Re: Sunroof

Yeah it kind of makes you wonder if you really want to trade in a perfectly good vehicle for one that may have leaks. It's really strange and you think they could easily solve this problem. It really just shows poor assembly and some workers that really don't care including the company! It's obvious from reading these posts that someone at GM doesn't care or the problem would have been solved a long time ago! Maybe I should just keep my nonleaking Yukon.

Re: Sunroof

Well, I have received my new 2008 and so far it isn't leaking. It was ordered so maybe it's the older 2008's that leak. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed.

Re: Sunroof

Just because the problem hasn't been fully resolved doesn't mean that the workers don't care.
It may be due to a step in the build process. Possibly a change in the order that parts are put in would alleviate the problem. The sunroof drains may be inadvertantly pulled or dislodged and the seams not sealed because of the order of assembly.

Re: Sunroof

If you look at some of the posts in this subject, people are saying that the drain lines were either too short or were never connected and that the factory did not fix them thinking that those that leaked would be fixed by the dealers. Well that is not acceptable and shows somebody doesn't care. It may be the line boss or the line assembly worker at that time but when you spend $35-40k on a vehicle, it better be put together as good as possible. Hopefully it has been addressed and the new ones won't have that problem. But think of the hassle the unfortunate people who bought the leakers had to go through! Unacceptable, and I'm not bashing the American worker, I own a Yukon and a Mustang GT and am thinking of buying an 09 Outlook (with a sunroof).

Re: Sunroof

Mine seems to be leaking too 2008 XR - bult Aug 2007, so early 2008 model. Got it as 'demo' a month ago. Doesn't (didn't) show any signs (stains) of water leaks neither on the headliner, nor the floor, but apparently either the time has come or I just did not see it (may be leak is minor compared to others I read here in this thread ).

So I saw water dripping on the passenger side A pillar, the bottom right corner of the glovebox this morning after a rainy night (car is not garaged). Saw a trail of water drops the last time it rained at the same spot, but the carpet felt dry, I decided water drops must have been introduced by me opening the wet door. Today however I checked more throughly and it indeed had water inside the trim on the corner where the glovebox is - so can't be me opening the wet door.

Made an appointment to have dealer check it. They mentioned they have had only one leaking Outlook so far (hard to believe judging by the amount of complaints I see here and on other msg boards).

Hopefully they will have mine waterproof without additional visits...
