The KickingTires blog at Cars.com is reporting GM has recalled its new 2007 Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia full-size CUVs for potentially faulty airbag sensors. The problem is reportedly software related, meaning it can be fixed with a trip to the dealer and a quick patch, but every single unit sold since they went on sale in December is affected by the recall. Letters went out yesterday to owners of the Saturn Outlook and will be sent on February 28th for GMC Acadia owners.

This is not a recall mandated by the NHTSA, but rather one initiated by GM itself after the problem was discovered internally. The potentialy faulty sensor in question controls the front airbags' deployment. While this potentially faulty sensor in the Outlook and Acadia could cause injury, GM apparently caught it quickly and the fix should be cheap, easy and fast for them to apply to every vehicle affected by the recall.

      I saw my first Buick Enclave here in Michigan the other day. Wow, is it noticable coming down the road. It looks great. Glad GM caught this early, because the Enclave is on my shortlist.

      Sounds like they got lucky this time in catching it so early. And probably good that the NHTSA didn't have to get involved.

      I will rather sell a few trucks and make profit than sell a million at half price and lose billions. That is not competition.... that is madness.

      Good job for GM catching the issue early. I have seen two Acadias on the road, and all I have to say is WOW! They are a lot bigger than I expected...I really like the look of the Acadia...I saw the Outlook from a distance at a Saturn dealership...I can't wait to see the Enclave.

      I drove one of the Outlooks and I was impressed with the ride, it was as smoothe and quiet as a car, with good accelleration. The thing that impressed me most was no wind noise, absolutely no wind noise.

      @ david and SherbornSean
      Yes every car company recalls their vehicles at some point. But let me tell you, Recalls are nothing to celebrate like you guys are doing. You praise an auto company making a recall? You’ve got to be kidding. Besides, when Toyota made a voluntary recall last year, I know what y'all were saying. Please save the B.S.

      And I don't see why completing a 5800 mile road trip without a problem is something to cheer about. My dads 92 Camry (220k miles) has never been to the shop. My 97 s-series Saturn died at 159k mile for no good reason.

      David FYI-- u sound very ignorant and dumb
      you seem to be one of those disgruntled Big 3 workers. don't hate the player hate the game. Toyota is making billions in profits, building plant and creating Jobs...why don't you beg them to hire you. Maybe then you will stop hating .

      I just bought a Outlook. I get 12 mpg, the dash lights go out intermittenly and the thermometer stays at one temp. Is anyone else having problems?

      I am glad that GM was paying attention. They need to make sure these cars launch without too many problems.

      Why does Saturn put Hondas engines in some of their vehicles?
