2008 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I bought the 4cyl model for the mileage, and though I test drove the car extensively, I'm still impressed that 2.3 liters moves the car well. I'm now getting 31mpg on the highway driving about 70ish. The mileage improved after a few thousand miles and a change to synthetic oil. I installed a low-flow Airhog air filter and the power and mileage improved! Impressive handling, and styling. A small drawback is the visibility. Overall a fantastic deal for the money.

Best Features

Styling, comfort and good mileage for its size. My wife drives an Accord, but this Aura gets all the good comments.

Worst Features

Thinner rear roof pillar. Less plastic inside, but every car needs that improvement.
