Question folks.....would you consider an Acadia Denali?

I just read that the Acadia will have the "Denali" additions with the 2011 model.

I checked it out online and....lots of extra upgrades and the price I saw was slightly less than what we paid for our Outlook in 2007 with the same components. :eek:

If you can sell it yourself, you'll get more $$ BUT you will have to tell the potential buyer of the issues that the OUTLOOK has had and show all the service reciepts in good faith. Karma is a B%^&h. Man do I know :sosad:

I'm just curious as to how much you paid for your Outlook? As the Acadia Denali is priced @ $43,220.....and I wonder if I could make my Outlook an Outlook Denali ::)

We were just talking about that last week. I think we paid 44,000-44,500, somewhere around there. The Outlook is loaded. It has a rear DVD player which we have never used, heck didn't know there was one for a couple weeks.

The only reason we did purchase a second SUV was the winter of 06/07 my husband got his 350Z stuck in the snow at the end of our driveway ::). I could not get the VUE out unless I drove around the trees through the front yard. Was not going to do that.

That next winter, the week after Thanksgiving he was traveling. He called me and said "Ok GM has 0% financing so if you want a second SUV now is the time".

What happened next was....I looked at all the Saturn dealers around us, Dayton-Cincinnati-Columbus. Found FOUR 07's in Cincinnati.

AND that is how we have two Saturn's. Okay I made the choice for us to get a Saturn. :banghead: Of course my husband said look at....one of the others...I think the Tahoe had caught his eye but no I loved the VUE so :( .

I wouldn't consider the Denali - too rich for my blood. We paid $30K for our 2010 Outlook and that was tough for me to swallow. Still, it was a better deal by at least $3K than the used Traveses or Acadias.

You might try to see if there are any 2010 Outlooks left. http://www.saturnofcolumbus.com/VehicleSearchResults?pageName=PreOwnedVehicleSearch&make=Saturn&model=Outlook&search=preowned&search=certified&location=&bodyType=&trim=&priceSearch=0&minPrice=7000&maxPrice=39000&minYear=2010&maxYear=2010&minMileage=2000&maxMileage=110000&minMPG=17&maxMPG=45"]Saturn of Columbus[/url] still has 3, 2 XEs (~$25K) and an XR-L (~$32K), all certified, all with <15K miles. That's where we bought ours, let me know if you go, I get a referral. :thumb: ;D

What V6 is in your Vue? The later models of the first body style (not sure what years) came with 250 HP Honda 3.5L V6s, same engine in the much heavier Pilot. Great drivetrain for a little SUV.

Unfortunately our VUE does not have the Honda engine in it. We purchased it on tax day in 2003 and I am not sure when it was built. Guess I could dig out the paperwork and find out.

Overall with so many VUE owners having problems which were mainly the 4 cylinders FWD, transmissions, I think we have a really great little SUV.

Love it love it love it!

:angryfire:

AND with the latest response concerning PARTS AVAILABILITY I am thinking this may not happen.

:soapbox: Yea I know I posted this else where but **** it deserves to be posted AGAIN!


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.
