I have a 2008 Saturn Outlook I bought new in August 2008. In 2011, I had the transmission problems and the headlamp problems. I had the water pump replaced in September of this year and on Thanksgiving Day my low oil pressure, stop engine message started flashing. My car has 87,500 miles on it. The next day I was told the engine was locked up and it would cost $7,300 to fix it and I was two months out of warranty. I spoke with GM and Saturn on Monday and was told they would speak to the Chevrolet delearship my car was taken to and get back with me. . GM said they would help with the cost of the repair if I could produce the last 4 oil changes that were done on my car. They were in the glove box and GM covered half the cost. While I am extremely thankful they covered the cost this still leaves me with a vehicle that I wonder what will happen next after reading many of the posts on here. The people at the dealership have been wonderful and have helped me in whatever way they can.
I have seen on here another post that sounded exactly like mine with all the problems and the engine failing at 87,000. I would like to know how many other owners of the Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse have had this problem. I feel like if there are a lot of people out there with this problem there maybe a bigger problem.
