Just Bought My Sixth Saturn: a 2008 Astra XR3

Astra Montage

I said in the past I wold not buy another, but I just went ahead and purchased my sixth Saturn: a new 2008 Astra 3 door XR with 8873 miles. It was never registered and I will be the first owner. Yes, it is 2010, but this car was priced right and I had to either replace my Ion or start putting money into it, as it is 6 years old and has 93 thousand miles. I was car shopping and found this treasure.

I was looking at all different cars, but none seemed right until I found this one. Anything I should be aware of?
