We were looking for a vehicle that had third row seating, with bucket seats in the second row. There is plenty of leg room in the third row even for adults. The middle bucket seats are comfortable and adjust for leg room. see full Saturn Outlook review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2008 Saturn Outlook

2008 Saturn Outlook Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr SUV 288-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
For a 4,700 lb vehicle, the direct injection V-6 coupled to the 6 speed tranny DOES give spirited performance for its size. Do feel the power available can work against ones achieving high mpg. see full Saturn Outlook review
2008 4dr SUV 275-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
There is a great amount of low rpm torque. Passing is quick and safe with good down shifting when needed. see full Saturn Outlook review

After 100,000 miles, everything started falling apart. Transmission failure. see full Saturn Outlook review
2008 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Engine is outclassed by the weight of the vehicle. GM tried to make up for the overworked 3.7L block with a 6 speed tranny that shifts way too much. The drivetrain is the weakest part of an otherwise outstanding vehicle. see full Saturn Outlook review
