2008 Saturn Aura Hybrid Green Line 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)


This car drives nicely, is solid, and quiet. I am getting an overall average of about 29 MPG. My main observation is that the battery and electric motor are not contributing enough to the task of moving the car. The battery gets charged easily; the gasoline engine stops when you come to a stop saving some fuel; the discharge of the battery in highway driving or accelerating is enemic. For the price it is a reasonable value but the efficiency balance does not seem correct (electric motor vs gasoline engine).
