Just got mine back from trip #4 @ the dealership for leaking sunroof issues, if it leaks after this time I'm going for a replacement OUTLOOK. klhm60 how did you go about getting the ball rolling for a replacement vehicle? Was it painless or was it like pulling teeth? Did you have to get a lawyer involved?

Re: Sunroof

You know I want to get an 09 Outlook with a sunroof, but I currently own a Yukon with a sunroof that DOES NOT LEAK! You'd think that GM could figure this out. This is why many Americans started buying Hondas and Toyotas in the 1970s!

Re: Sunroof

6Sixathome - It wasn't very hard for me to do, which was a big surprise!!. I 1st starting looking around at the Michigan Lemon laws and contacted a few of the lawyers for info. What I did according to the Michigan lemon law. Apparently in Michigan if you have to return your vechicle (3) times for the same problem or if they have it in the shop more than 30 days it is considered a lemon. After the 4th time I took my Saturn in I sent Saturn headquaters a certified letter informing them they had 30 days to correct my problem, if they can't correct the problem they are suppose either exchange the vechicle for a new one or buy yours back from you. I received my new vehicle without the help of any laywers. Good luck on your lemon law process....what state are you in?

Re: Sunroof

I live in Indiana and the law is that if the vehicle is in for four times or 30 days out of service and still not fixed a replacement is in order or a buyback. Basically the same as Mi but w/ one more time in the shop. So far it is not leaking, but is has not rained hard enough or long enough to really tell. Time will tell!

klhm60 was it a straight up exchange? I mean your leaker for the new 08. How many miles did you have on it when they replaced it? Were you able to change anything like color or features or was it like for like? How has the new one been so far?

Re: Sunroof

6Sixathome They replaced my 2007 leaker with a brand new 2008 Outlook and I could upgrade but had to pay the difference. So far no problem with sunroof but I always seem to be checking any ways. Good luck

Re: Sunroof

klhm60, it is not going that well for myself and GM, no big suprise considering the state that they are in. My offer from them is MSRP to MSRP but they want me to pay usage fees That's not working for me so now the BBB is involved. I've never had to use the BBB before so I dont know what to expect. I can only hope that it is fair to me since I've been the one dealing with the water leak problem since June that can't seem to be corrected. One gets fixed and another one shows it's ugly head I'll keep in touch and any other help and/or advice would be great. My OUTLOOK only has 17,000 miles on it now and only 13,000 on it when it all started. I keep hoping for the best.
