I bought this car 1 month ago with 40,000.
I owned a Saturn Ion 2 and put 100,000 on it and I loved that car.
I actually went to the dealership to buy another Ion that they had with 36,000 but when the loan came through he had put it through for the Aura to surprise me.
Omgosh I am so glad he did.
This is a luxury car without the luxury price.
I am soooo happy with this car.
And to go along with the other reviews you definately get second looks.
And the people at work think I paid a lot more than I did for it.
It is far above my old ION.
The ride is awesome, how quiet it is, the sound system
My only complaint is I am 5'10 and it is difficult to get in and out of.
But once you are in it is awesome.
