Miscellaneous -- taximom19

I would like to see if anyone else has had to have their transmission replaced. My Saturn has 47K miles, I have never towed anything and I went to put it into reverse and it wouldn't go into gear. After having it towed to mechanic, I was told the transmission needed to be replaced (besides reverse, 4th and 5th gear were also gone). I have never had a transmission go out...and I do all of the maintenance required.

Saturn Outlook Reviews

My Outlook has had power steering issues. At 30k miles the boot was leaking power steering fluid. The steering wheel winds and the power steering fluid is full. I drive my Outlook at least 80 miles a day and it is very comfortable. Its exterior is beautiful and it holds up to the parking garage with no door dings or anything. But, it has no guts and at 50 MPH it shifts like it is trying to climb a mountain. It basically eats up gas and I only do about 73MPH on the highway. My daily route gives me an average of 18.1 MPH. I know they give the gas mileage a combined 26 but this is a far cry from that.

I love the pig, but she ain't got NO GUTS, the engine is to damn small for the body. I love everything else about her. I'll still keep her. She's AMERICAN, last of the good ones.

This vehicle is everything you need to make your family happy and you. Very dependable and very good looking car.

Had to replace the master window switch.
Passenger side headlamp wiring harness had to be replaced.
