Sometimes problems with a vehicle do not become apparent until several years after its initial manufacturing. This is the case with the 2010 Saturn Outlook. Like all crossover SUVs, the Saturn Outlook has a higher risk for rollover accidents than smaller vehicles, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Outlook is likely to experience a rollover in 17.9% of accidents similar to those which were studied in controlled circumstances.
As the owner of a Saturn Outlook, it is important that you understand you may be able to seek financial compensation if you have been hurt in a rollover accident while driving the vehicle. When vehicles are defectively designed or built, the manufacturer may bear legal responsibility for the consequences of crashes associated with those flaws.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to their consumers to ensure that vehicles are safe for purchase and use. However, the following factors may increase a vehicle’s risk for rollover:
- Design error
- Construction error
- Use of faulty / inadequate parts
- Improper oversight of assembly
- Prescribing the use of improper replacement parts or equipment
Driving an automobile will always carry with it a certain degree of danger, but there can be no tolerance for the production and sale of vehicles that are prone to potentially fatal rollover accidents.
