Please Read: Get answers to your Outlook questions!

Hey Outlook owners (and potential owners). One of our members, Goosemaster, posted this reply in another thread, but I think it deserves it's own. here's his Post:

Quote:
We recently purchased our 2007 Saturn Outlook at Saturn of Charlotte NC. Shortly after our purchase, we received a notice from the national Saturn Team, asking if we were interested in becoming a member of a "Saturn Brand Advocacy Board". We responded positively, and as a result, I was selected as a member and will be attending a three day conference in Detroit, Lansing and Milford MI on April 18-20, 2007 Travel expenses are being paid by Saturn. Our agenda includes: Tour of GM Heritage Center, Tour of Lansing Delta plant where the Outlook is assembled, Preview of some of the 2008 Saturn models included in the Saturn Mobile Events tour and meetings and discussions with Saturn leadership (Jill Lajdziak and others). We will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues with Saturn leaders. If any Outlook Forum members have questions and or issues that they wish for me to raise, please let me know via reply to this email. I will provide a full report to the forum when I return home. Please feel free to email me at [email protected] with any suggestions and/or comments.
this is an unprecedented opportunity to have him ask questions on our behalf about anything related to the Outlook and have a real possibility to getting those answers directly from GM execs! This thing starts in two days, though, so ask your questions in this thread ASAP so goosemaster can start taking them down. Thank you, goosemaster, for giving us this info!

Re: Please Read: Get answers to your Outlook questions!

Here are my first few questions:

1) Find out what changes, if any, are coming to the 2008 models. Specifically, will there be new options & new colors?
2) Pricing changes over the 07 models?
3) If no backup cam option is mentioned, ask why the omission.

And of course, please take LOTS of pics of the tour, if you are allowed!

I am curious if the sunroof (front and rear) will receive an actual sliding cover that blocks out sunlight completely. The black sliding screen does a decent job, but it would be nice if it could be completely covered.

Posted on behalf of Acadia4VA-WV @ acadiaforum.net -

The Admin asked me to send you a few items to ask about when you're at the Lambda plant in Lansing. Although these issues arise from Acadia owners, they should be applicable to Outlook as well.

1 - Fuel gauge issue: Several owners have reported that it takes a long time for the gauge to adjust to correct fuel level after sitting on an incline. We have been told a fix will be developed by GM interlopers on the Lambda forums. I would ask about how soon this will be fixed. If you need the full info on this, just ask.

2 - NAV disk data issue: The NAV disks shipped are copyright 2005 with obviously 2005 or older data. This is unacceptable for a 2007 vehicle. We have learned that the 2007 disk is eminent. For the price of the NAV system and these vehicles, we should receive the 2007 disk and still get our two updates for our 2007 vehicles.

3 - Ask why flash to pass doesn't work with Daytime Running Lights and you have to manually turn on the headlights to flash to pass during daylight. May only be an issue with HID lights.

4 - iPod interface. GM touts its Personal Audio Link to integrate the iPod into radios and NAV systems so you can select and control from the radio rather than via an AUX cable. Can you ask for a "real" answer about when it will be available?

5 - Although this isn't a performance problem, many owners (I experience this too) note how much more the Acadia (I assume all Lambdas) can roll back or forward when put into park and not engaging the parking brake. Seems to be several inches of drift. Could bump another car. One owner had his slide back and his garage door caught on the rear bumper.

Finally, there's a thread about perceived rust problems with the exhaust system. Virtually everyone that isn't personally upset about it believes it is just the same type of discoloration any vehicle's exhaust system gets. If you could get a definitive response from GM that it IS NOT rust we could finally close this issue.

Have a great visit and experience. I'm envious and look forward to hearing your report afterward.
