2008 Saturn Astra XR 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


This Opel reminds me of the VWs I have driven. Small but feels bigger on the road. Not a comfy couch to put you asleep on the road, specially on not- too-straight roads. (I believe the .84 g specs reported.) If gas prices spike up again, the 30mph average (90+% hwy) should soften the blow to my wallet. Had a turn signal relay replaced on warranty but no other issues. I am confident my son will keep this car when I hand it over to him in a couple of years.

Best Features

driver info, very accurate. Summer performance tires grip!

Worst Features

design could have been better for driver storage spaces including cupholders.
