The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Outlook. When the driver's side door was opened, there was a puddle of water in the area where the floor mat, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal were located. The contact used a wet vac and drained the water out. The contact drove the vehicle to the dealer (marty's GMC in kingston, Massachusetts) where the sun roof drainage lines and radio were replaced. The vehicle was taken to the marty's GMC dealer for water intrusion a total of four times, but the failure was never resolved. During the last failure, the battery that was located under the rear seat was buried under four inches of water. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and advised the contact that the failure was not a safety concern. The approximate failure mileage was 97,000.

Water is coming in from the sunroof drains. Water is pooling in the headliner. Upon braking water poured out the front of the headliner by the passenger windshield and also dripped on the lower left side of the drivers side gauge compartment. I am concerned of stagnant water causing mold and mildew - I am highly allergic and it causes bronchial issues. I am concerned of the water shorting out the electronic components. I purchased this vehicle from my father who drove it sporadically and garaged it. I do not have a garage and drive it daily rain or shine. I am concerned for our safety. A car is not supposed to leak.

Constant sunroof leak into passenger side of vehicle, multiple repairs. The rain runs down into vehicle leaving massive puddle of water on the passenger side floor. It appears to run down on far right side under the glove box area into the vehicle. I constantly have towels on the passenger side floor to protect the carpet, however the carpet is now permanently damaged and smells moldy. The state in which I live rains all winter long, so this is a major issue. I'm very concerned about the electrical box and electrical system failing! GM dealerships have been completely unhelpful and want to charge anywhere from $300 to $500 to replace the tubing every year.

2007 Saturn Outlook, consumer received notification of rejection. * bf the sunroof leaked, the rear wiper was broken and the front passenger air bag did not activate. The driver's seat belt was improperly aligned from a previous repair and the front wipers failed. Last month, the power steering function was severely compromised while driving through a heavy rainstorm. The power steering was providing inconsistent feedback which appeared to be caused by a slipping belt to the power steering pump.

Sunroof leaks. The leaks lead to reserves of water above the headliner that can be heard when turns are made. Significant amounts of water run through air bags on a columns and dashboard. Given that the battery has died on me six times, I am concerned about long term electrical damage and proper air bag deployment. Dealer has attempted to repair five times.
