Better with Age

2008 Saturn Aura XR 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I wasn't sure about this car when I first purchased it, having come off of 10 years of German cars. But I can say that I have grown to really like the car. Great power, ride, and comfort. MPG is ok if you're nice to it. On highway road trips, I've gotten close to 30 mpg. Just recently started to have one issue with the car, cruise control occasionally does not work. Have to take it in to get it looked at. Other than that, no problems at all. I get a lot of compliments on it. The Red Jewel paint is awesome. The car looks more expensive than it is. Many people are surprised it's a Saturn. Too bad Saturn went away. They finally had a good lineup of cars.
Power and handling is top notch. The paddle shifters are kind of a waste, but can be fun on occasion. Stereo is great. Heated seats warm up quickly. Remote start and ambient lighting are nice options to have.
Doesn't really matter, since Saturn is no more. But they should have put a rear seat arm rest and bluetooth in this car.
