Re: GM has been contacted

WTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just called "Reichard Buick/GMC" about my Outlook.

They are STILL WAITING ON A PART!!!!!

The camshaft actuator is on BACKORDER BECAUSE....you want to take a wild assed guess?

PARTS FOR SATURNS ARE HARD TO COME BY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WTH!!! And to think GM really really wants to keep us Saturn drivers as customers.

HUMMM wonder what my friends who purchased the LAST Pontiac G8 will do if they need parts

Guess they will someday be in the same boat as we are....without a paddle and far far far out to sea.

Why isn't it the same as the Acadia? The only part differences should be cosmetic, not engine!

YEP I just roared laughing over that one...and said good one you have my Outlook in, which by the way you will be taking the head off the motor AGAIN, and you put me in a car with the service engine light on.
Remember the above...well after hearing about the "SATURN PARTS ARE HARD TO COME BY" I rethought the phone call. I called the dealer back this morning and told them that they needed to contact GM and have a rental COMPARABLE TO MY 07 OUTLOOK! When my husband returned from a business trip Friday night his comment about the 2001 LeSabre was....actually was...WTF! I am heading up there between 3&4 for a different rental. Will be interesting as to what I drive back home...or will I be hitchhiking?

My guess is they they really dont know what part to order and maybe just trying to throw some parts at it and hoping that when it's all back together, volia it's fixed! Maybe body parts for Saturns are hard to come by and thats it, they are all the same under the skin.

Yeah, I always hate getting a car no where near comparable to my Outlook. I put up a big stink one time and managed to get an Equinox, not quite the same...and could not move the love seat I planned to move...

Re: GM has been contacted

So, did you ever hear from GM? Did they correct the car's history? If not, the last they can do is give you the new engine they said it had.

Thanks for asking!

They said they will have to ONLY make a notation that an engine was NOT installed in our 07 Outlook due to "clerical error". LOL!

I will only know if and when I have a detailed history report printed off....down the road.

If you like; I can try and have your VIN run through GMVIS so we can all see the "clerical error"
