My wife & I purchased a 2008 Outlook XE in Sept. The "lemon" ran fine until New Year's Eve when some disturbing problems began. First, the throttle body iced up. This caused a reduction in power which gave us a max. speed of about 20km/h. This happened in -25C weather on the highway, not the kind of weather to be stuck waiting for a tow truck. Luckily, Onstar was able to tell me to shut off the car for about 10 minutes and it would reset itself. This worked, but on 2 more occasions while I was driving in the city it happened again. Again, not the time to be losing engine power in city traffic. Our dealer had to take it apart and get all the moisture from inside. Come on, I live in Alberta where it can get cold for 5 months! What climate is the Outlook designed for? The second time the engine light came on (and second appointment with the dealer), it was due to what they thought might be a problem with the oxygen sensor. I drove the car for 5 days and the light came on again, so the third trip to the dealer ensued. This time they determined that the injectors were clogged and needed flushing. Come on, the vehicle has 7000kms on it! They recommended to only use gas from "Top Tier" stations. Petro Canada and Shell are on their list of recommended stations, and that's the only place we've filled up at since the car was new. I have owned 4 new vehicles now, ranging from a 1995 Plymouth Neon, 1998 Dodge Dakota, and most recently a 2001 Honda Civic. None of these vehicles has caused me the inconvenience of visiting the dealer 3 times in a 3 week period. We bought the Outlook because we are starting a family in a few weeks and I liked the ride, power, interior space, and safety ratings. I assumed the mechanical quality would be fine, but I've since changed that opinion. I feel I can't trust our Outlook and am more than a little uneasy about my wife and newborn using this as the main vehicle. I'm curious to know if anyone else out there experienced any of these problems. Oh, and the GM hood deflectors are junk. I had ours installed at the dealer, they didn't tell me anything about not going through automatic car washes, and the air dryer ripped it off. The 2 screws that hold it under the hood are not enough, it's too flimsy. Again, my 7 year old Honda has went through dozens of automatic washes and the hood deflector has had no problems.
