With Saturn all but dead...I am concerned about ongoing availability of parts. I do believe mechanically the parts shoudl be around due to the Acadia and Traverse...is that correct?

Now...if their ever is physical damage...or cosmetic...parts could be tough to come by. I am contemplating whether or not to trade in my Saturn for another Lambda...even though I love it.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Get the Enclave!  ;)  But, to answer your question...do you think it's hard for Oldsmobile owners to get parts?  Do you think it's hard to get parts for discontinued models, like a Bonneville (I have one), since they don't make that anymore?  Do you realize how many models of cars are discontinued all the time?  Having Saturn, as a division of GM, go away, is no different than a model being discontinued, or changed within a car line.  I have a 72 GTO, and still can get parts for that...which I know is a little different, those are restoration parts places, but I wouldn't worry about parts for a vehicle that's not that old.  Even if GM went out completely, there would be a demand for parts, and there would be companies who would make them.

They are required to keep x number of parts for 10 years out I believe. These would be the ones that can't be carried over from the other 3 Lambdas (this would apply to any car/truck). If your not having problems, keep the Outlook, it's a great ride.

Yes I would assume most (if not all of the parts) are not made by saturn.

And since the model has been around for 3 model years now...if 2010 was its last model year (4yr duration of design)... that would be very similar and normal to other design lengths (maybe a little short)

So ya like 09 said , its not really different then a complete redesign of the model. Parts are only for repair/mod's after that.
