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.

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.
