The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Outlook. The contact stated the vehicle would not start and was towed to the dealer. The dealer advised that the battery was defective and replaced the battery with a new one. One week later, the failure recurred. The vehicle was again towed to the dealer where a third battery was installed. The dealer informed the owner that the battery received was defective and they had received an entire defective batch of batteries. The failure recurred and the vehicle was towed back to the dealer for a fourth battery replacement. The current and failure mileage was approximately 17,000.
