The passenger airbag warning on the instrument panel stays "off" even if a passenger is seated. On the dashboard, the warning light says "service air bag".

The passenger airbag light sporadically goes off when an adult is seated on the seat leaving the airbag inoperable in a crash. My vehicle has not been recalled for this issue although it is a known issue in my year and model.

My dashboard light has been indicating that the passenger side seat airbag was off. I had the dealership check to see if it was under recall as I had found reference to there being a recall in February of 2007 (a month prior to our purchase) indicating we could get false readings and our computer needed to be reset. The dealership informed us that it isn't covered under recall and it is the under the seat modulator unit that is defective. I am seeing hundreds of similar complaints registered on various sites. I now can't have anyone sit in my passenger seat as it is a $700 repair that is beyond our means. The 2008 Saturn is under recall for this very issue, why wasn't the 2007 included?

When I was driving on the highway, the service airbag light came on. Light has been on/off for the past month and a half. I see there is a recall for the 2008 Saturn Outlook, but nothing for the 2007 model. If so many people are having the same problem, GM needs to expand the recall to include the 2007 model.

Service air bag indicator light goes on and off, this has been a problem with this vehicle for the past 3yrs. Dealer states there is a issue with the passanger seat wiring harness. My understanding their is a campaign for the 2008 and newer vehicles with the same problem, why were the 2007 vehicles left out.

The air bag warning light came on in early January 2014 and went on & off for approximately two weeks. Since the end of January 2014, the air bag warning light has been continuously on. The most recent GM recall on air bags covers 2008-2010 Saturn Outlooks and the response I received from GM was "GM is still looking into the issue at this time, if you would like more information on recalls, you may look into National Highway Traffic Safety Administration." When I asked about whether or not additional vins would be added to the recall, the response was "when the recall is released the affected vehicle VIN's will be added and those customers will be notified." When I asked about an estimated timeline, the response was "the research is ongoing." If GM is so concerned about the safety of their customers, they should not have excluded the 2007 Saturn Outlook from this recall.

2007 Saturn Outlook xr AWD has the airbag warning light on for quite a while now. So today I seen on the news that GM is recalling the 2008-2010S GM SUVS for this very issue. This needs to be extended to the 2007's they are all the same why not the 07S.

Roof leaks from sunroof /moonroof. Everytime it rains my 2007 Saturn Outlook roof leaks. The water travels into the pillars and where the air bags are stored in the columns. I am not sure if this will effect air bag operation or deployment. Leaks into the glove box and behind dashboard as well as into the rear passenger / storage area. The floors are saturated and the vehicle smells of mold. Random dashboard lights come on periodically.

Took a trip out of town this weekend and started noticing the transmission slipping when switching gears which activated the check engine light. Thankfully made it home before it got worse. Next day drove it around the block and was slipping all over the place. Pulled over to my house and parked. Turned off, turned back on. Tried to go in reverse and was unable as if in neutral. Still can go forward but major slippage. Doing research this is a very common issues with these vehicles. This page alone has 100+ and 10+ in the last month. GM and NHTSA need to realize this issue and get that recall going!

Thought this was a good deal just purchased on 11/4/13. With a 100,000 mile warranty. Yeah right have had nothing but trouble since I drove it. And they told me they fixed all the problems. Today is the 13th they told me to take it out of town on my planned trip and see how it does.the farther we drove the worse the transmission kept slipping. So on the 12th I took it back in and the service dept. Told me they are limited on what they can fix on a used car even under warranty. And my airbag service light came on and they couldn't fix that told me I would have to take it to another dealership and they could fix that out of my pocket cost. Something needs to be done with these vehicles before somebody gets seriously hurt! somebody please help me what can I do..

Service passenger air bag warning light has been coming on for about 6 months now. Took it dealer but they said it was not covered. On Oct 11, 2013 while driving on the highway at about 65 mph the transmission just gave out. Car started slowing down and was not able to keep speed up. Was able to pull off the road. Got towed to certified dealership (motor city) in bakersfield and was told that my Saturn Outlook 2007 needed a new transmission.

The airbag sensor in the passenger seat needed to be replaced. Considering they did a recall already with this exact issue, but the fix was reprogramming the SDM computer module. This should have included the sensor as well because the issue is more than a reprogram. It was a very expensive fix, and air bags sensors should last more than 78K. Please reference: NHTSA 07V062000.
