2009 Saturn Aura XE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Bought new in July 2009 - just turned 100K
Have only replaced tires, wipers and rear shocks (dirt roads and potholes - yuck),
oil & filter changes - everything else original including brakes. Avg @ 28 mpg summer, 26 winter.
Maintenance at Buick/Cadillac dealer has been great!
This is simply an extremely reliable car, with a great ride and handling, very quiet, good performance, comfortable, roomy and did I say reliable?

Still looks new inside and out

Rides far quieter than my friends Acura.
I like it so much I am trying to find one for my daughter for a college graduation present.

Best Features

The features that came standard - tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 6 spd, paddle shifters, traction/stability control, am/fm/xm/cd/aux in, OnStar pwr seat, keyless, six airbags are great. I bought the base model SE, with absolutely no options I drive a lot, and really appreciate the XM radio on long drives. The fuel economy is great - long trips at 75-80 mph I average @ 32mpg (rated at 33 hwy). My normal commuting/local business trips in city/suburban traffic fuel economy as noted above is pretty good too

Worst Features

In retrospect, I wish I had sprung for a couple options - heated mirrors, auto dim mirror with compass, but other than that - I bought a nicely equipped midsize for the price of a compact
