GM halts sales of Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia

General Motors has temporarily halted sales of its critical Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia crossovers. The company said in hastily put together communiqué to dealers it was issuing an "immediate stop" of all sales of the vehicles. GM did not specify a reason for the action, but said more details would follow.

The Message: "Attnntion ALL Saturn Retailers and GMC Dealers [...] This is to advise Saturn Retailers and GMC Dealers that we are issuing an immediate stop sale on all Saturn OUTLOOK models and GMC Acadia models in dealer inventory as well as in transit to the dealer. In order to maintain our momentum and successful launch of these prodects, we are evaluating potential enhancement and inventory upgrade to the vehicles. More details will be forthcoming on Monday, December 11, 2006. [...] Thank you for your immediate attention and cooperation in this matter."

Update: LLN reader David Roen reports the pseudo recall is the result of an exhaust system rattle. Stay tuned...
