get out while you can, try to sell your outlook worth beens crazy since its the same as the acadia, you will be surprised, same with chrysler, get educated look for better alt. fuel mileage on the outlook is no where near advertised, and on resale they know it and will use it against you

I dont think you should have a problem--- just keep your vehicle till you hit 150-200,000 miles and by that time- youve used it well...

Given the deal I got on my 2010 XR compares to the used Traverses out there, I think the resale has taken a hit due to the Saturn not being made anymore. My Outlook was close to $5,000 less than a comparable Traverse. The used Acadias were even more.

I'm glad I was able to take advantage of it on the buying end though. :thumb:

IMO; but a 10 and hold onto it; give it 10 years and see what happens

There are a few dealers around here selling OUTLOOKs and the #'s they are asking are encouraging :cheers:. If they get it or not is a different story ::).

Yes. I agree. A while back I bought a fully loaded XR AWD 2007. The only option it didn't have was the navigation. Had 55k miles on it and with tax and title it was under $20k. Acadia or Traverse was an easy $10k more.

My 2010 XR w/ bluetooth, BU camera, towing package, leather, pwr pass seat, remote start, etc. with 12K miles was $29,700. We looked at a similarly equipped used Traverse and it was $36K, even lesser equipped they were over $30K. No Acadias ever turned up in my Lambda search for 2009-2010 models under $30K. The dealer had several 2010 XEs that were in the mid $20's, all with under 30K miles.

07 lease turn in with 82k. Under 20k$
Have everything but dvd and 6 disc. Was BT available in 07? Was the BU camera? dont have those if they were.
AWD XR leather Nav remote start tow package pass pwr 7 seater. For the miles and price I think its a good deal. Given this paltform still has a few years left under its belt imo.

If you say it has misrepresented MPG and so forth look at it this way. These are replacing the GMT360 platform as well as the tahoes and stuff. They got crappy MPG as well. They just upgraded to something that looks better ;)

The backup camera was not available on the 07 Outlook and neither was bluetooth.

I just bought a used 2007 Outlook XR AWD with every option on it. It also was GM certified with only 34000 miles. I paid $23970 for it. Will get it next Friday. I think I got a good deal as I was looking at used GM Certified Acadias with 20000 more miles that were $4000 more. To me, I plan on keeping this one while so the Outlook was a better value, especially with all the toys. I once had a 2007 Acadia but sold it and have regretted it since the day I sold it.

who1975 :welcome: to the OUTLOOK forum. I think I remember you on the Acadia forum :confused: I hope you OUTLOOK will be a great vehicle. It's amazing how much more $$$$ used Acadia's go for and it's the same thing but that's what we get when we have a discontinued model :sosad: anyhow enjoy and what color combination do you have?

I found the same when I got mine back in June. I was looking at 2009 or 2010 Lambdas under $30K and lots of Outlooks came up, a few Traverses but never an Acadia.

Yep, that was me on the Acadia forum. I regretted each day after we sold our Blue Gold Crystal Acadia. We bought a Toyota Tundra Crewmax and I loved it, but my wife was not that excited about it. Almost owned it 2 years and then sold it for more than I bought it for. Now I am making amends for losing the Acadia with this fully loaded Outlook. It is the Carbon Metallic color with black leather interior. My wife was not too excited about the black leather, but I could not find an Outlook with the correct options on it with the light gray interior. It is weird, but I find myself getting excited about getting it. Like a kid in a candy store. We have owned some pretty nice cars in the past, but this one has every option and talking with the previous owner, she took great care of it. I am looking forward to getting it and seeing the similarities and differences to the Acadia. :thumb:

You'll love the ebony interior, that's what I have in my '09. My '07 OUTLOOK was dark blue with light gray and it was almost a bear to keep clean (4 kids). Did you buy from a private seller or a dealer? I'm sure you know this but did you happen to ask if all the recalls have been done?

I bought it GM certified from a dealer in WI. i live in Ohio so it is being delivered this weekend. I did not ask about the recalls, but I had planned on checking when I got it here and taken it to the dealer I go to for service. I thought the same thing about the ebony interior but was wondering if they get really hot sitting out in the sun during the summer months.

No it really does'nt get too steamy with the ebony interior if you keep the sunroof blinds closed. How are they delivering it?, meaning are they driving or is it to be put on a trailer?
