2008 Saturn Astra XR 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

There are definitely some pros and cons to this car. On the plus side, I've never had mechanical problems, it has a great sunroof and very responsive steering. It's a reasonably comfortable ride although you might find it a little cramped. On the downside, lack of engine power. I don't think this thing could outrun a slushie truck going up a hill. The cupholders where you have to dislocate your arm to get your drink, the very tiny side mirrors, and the paint job wore off after only a few months. Now of course we also have to deal with lack of service, as there are only 2 dealers in my city who are authorized to work on Saturns.

Favorite Features

sunroof, great steering, heated seats, comfortable ride

Suggested Improvements

More powerfull engine, better placement of cupholders, bigger mirrors, more interior legroom, more GM dealers willing to honour the warranty.
