2007 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car rides like a lumber wagon on streets that aren't in great shape. It has to stiff of a suspension and I have over a 100,000 miles on it isn't holding up like a car made in Japan would. The brakes are to small for comfortable stopping, I have vibration and shaking in my rotors. Looks great but for the long haul I wouldn't recommend.


Best Features

Looks of the car and a great ride on a smooth highway.


Worst Features

Suspension, fuel mileage, trunk, reliability, and brakes

2007 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For it's price this car is unbeatble. And I've owned some really great cars: a grandsport corvette, a '72 T-Bird, a Datsun 280-Z... to name a few. Best mpg is 33 highway 22 average. Corners like it's on tracks. Extremely reliable and easy to own. My original tires are just now wearing out at 63,000+ miles. My opinion, just before a brand "breathes its last breath" the manufacturer produces something fantastic. Others in this catefory: Studebaker Avanti, AMC 390cid, Oldsmobile Aurora multiple year INDY winner. Too bad the manufacturers don't have better vision


Best Features

extreme reliability and excellent handling with tight bucket seats.


Worst Features

loose the traction control feature; I usually turn it off.

2007 Saturn Aura XR 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

It's 13 months later, and now I know that I cannot get another NEW Saturn <huge sigh>... I guess I'll just have to keep this one; right now, I"m OK with that. This car continues to prove it's worth. My next one would have been Saturn #5. I'm now approaching 50,000 miles, and have owned it 2 yrs, 11 days. I've replaced the worn rear brake pads, and have machined the front disc brake rotors (due to intense pulsations when braking at higher speeds). The tires STILL HAVE 8/32" of tread, and they STILL drive nicely. Folks still compliment me on it's looks ("That's a Saturn ??"). The car is STILL a pleasure to drive! Next Car= Ford, Lincoln, Chevy SS, or Cadillac


Best Features

I really like the interior of this car.. it's still "tight". Unlike some of the other reviews , I've had ZERO problems with the interior. Confession: The wireless headphones for the rear passengers... I should have put the batteries in them, before trying to act like "Mr. Bigshot". (LOL)


Worst Features

I would have made the sunroof in this car, like previous Saturn sunroofs. ie- This one flips-up at an angle, and then goes back (still angled). Previous Sunroofs flattened-out after initial opening, and went directly into the body of the car... no "wedged look" when the sunroof was fully open.

2007 Saturn Aura XR 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

When I first heard about this car I said, "Aura Who", until I did my du- diligence on this car. I test drove the XE V6 and it was peppy than drove XR V6 and it was awesome. It amazing how 25 horse power makes a differences in performance. I had a 300zx twin turbo and it was very fast but compared with this sports sedan it's almost the same experience. Cornering is tight and 6.5 to 6.8 in the 0-60. With the big 18" wheels this makes the car look aggressive and handsome at the same time.


Best Features

18" alloy wheels, Interior color (morrocco brown), heated seats and mirrors, it's quickness, sound system and remote start.


Worst Features

Surrounded by plastic inside, need middle arm rest for the back, nice to have a toggle switch for ride control

2007 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I really like my 2007 Aura. The car is fun to drive and honestly, it feels like i am sitting in a much more expensive car. It performs great and has more than enough pick-up and despite many negative reviews, i like how the vehicle brakes. The car is very quiet, so much so that with out the radio on and doing 70 on the highway, i heard virtually nothing.


Best Features

Engine, Sunroof, ambient lighting, handling, overall look (both interior and exterior)
