2008 Saturn Astra XR Review

From MotherProof.com: The new ad campaign for Saturn features a man walking into a Saturn dealer and promptly walking back out the door to take a second look at the sign and make sure he's in the right place. The message is that Saturn's got a whole new look — it's sportier, sleeker and just plain cooler than you ever thought. Well, coincidently enough, when I was driving the 2008 Saturn Astra around town one morning, a young Starbucks baristar (is that what male baristas are called? I don't know) at the drive-through said to me, "Dude, is that a Saturn?" I replied, "Why, yes it is." To which he said, "Yeah, dude, it looks like a Volkswagen, which means I, like, really dig it." This exchange provided me with actual, living proof that Saturn has indeed changed its look and people are noticing.

Best Fuel Economy to Date in My 2009 Vue XR

Last week, I went on a 450 km trip and my 2009 VUE XR-6 averaged 7.7 L/100 km. Converted, it gives 36.7 MPG imperial, or 30.6 MPG US gallons. I was driving at 101 km/h (60 MPH) on the cruise control. We were 2 adults and a child, fully loaded with luggages. For a 3.6L V6, I think it is very, very acceptable! I like this machine!
