Re: Katzkin Leather Interior

The leather in a different color makes the interior look far more upscale than the monochromatic look. The Pontiac G8 bugs me for the same reason. All charcoal with bright red inserts being the...

Re: Current market new 08 Astra pricing

So in addition to the 0% financing, what other rebates are available right now on the car? GM loyalty? Lease to buy?

Re: Katzkin Leather Interior

Are there any issues with the seat heaters with the aftermarket leather? Does it cover or replace the existing fabric/leather? Any issues with the airbag sensors in the seats? I'm thinking about...

Re: 2009 Astra Pricing Changes

GM is acting irrationally desperate by raising prices so significantly. Almost all GM products are up far too much for 2009. It's absurd. GM's competitive advantage, in the absence of brand cache,...

Re: Four cylinder XR Vue?

It's not a choice yet in the Build Your Own section. Apparently it's available to order but won't be hitting lots until late next month.

Re: Cool trick on the astra key fob...

It is a cool feature. Now, if GM/Saturn could offer anything lighter than a coal bin interior color scheme, the car would be even cooler!

Re: New 08' Vue Redline W/Nav Owner

I have looked at all of the VUE models and find the Red Line the only one worth considering, mainly for one reason: the seats. The other VUEs have such awful short seat cushions that are too soft...

Re: Radio Display ??

I have not been able to get CD track info on either my Aura's radio (2007 XR, advanced audio) or my Sky's radio (base system). I press the info button and it just says "No info". My 2005 G6 with...

Re: Aura Water Stains

The coarse texture of the fabric holds onto any spills or stains for dear life. Softer fibers (like the velour of the old days) is so much easier to clean. GM still uses some nice fabrics in a few...

Re: Aura Water Stains

Another thing you can do is write a letter to Saturn and GM and kindly ask them to stop using cheap stain absorbing fabric that stains even with water. If you get any dealer surveys, make sure to...

Re: Four cylinder XR Vue?

We would obviously have to see such a powertrain in action to know if it would yield significantly better fuel economy numbers. Would the Turbo four weigh less that the 3.6? My biggest issue with...

Re: Finally: new wheels / tires

Those really do look great. So many aftermarket wheels are overly gaudy and blingy so it's nice to see something tasteful that also fits the style of the car. Nice!

Re: General Motors Employee Pricing Sale Extended to September 30th; 2009 Aura, Outlo

What's the status on leases for Saturns? I know they are pushing people into purchases but I much prefer to lease and would like a new Vue soon as my wife's lease is close to being up. Do any of...

Re: Four cylinder XR Vue?

Thanks. I noticed those tidbits in the guide but no equipment breakdown for a 4-cyl XR. I'm just wondering if there are equipment differences as there are between 4-cyl & V6 AURA XR models. I did...

Re: 2009 Saturn Aura XR 4-Cylinder Test Drive Yields an Impressive 39 Highway MPG

The 4-cyl XR loses not only the 18" wheels that remain standard on V6 XRs but also the V6 model's automatic climate control and fog lamps. None of those features can be had on a 4-cyl XR at any...

Re: General Motors sues over employee discounts

General Motors has partially created such abuses anyway because they grant six employee discounts per year to employees/retirees but they can only be used by family members. Why? Why can't they be...

Re: Four cylinder XR Vue?

I just saw this today too. While a 4-cyl FWD XR is listed under "New for 2009", there is no equipment info listed in the guide. I really hope this is going to happen because it has bugged me with...

Re: Sunroof Changes on 2008 XR?

I've had no issues with my sunroof in my XR either, except that I miss the pano roof from my 2005 G6 every time I use it! The opening seems so tiny! A close friend of mine has a 2007 XR with the...

Re: 09 mileage

The DI V6 is rated at 17 city (up one MPG from 2008) and 24 hwy for FWD models. AWD models are rated at 16/23. I have found with my vehicles (2007 Aura XR and Sky 2.4 auto) that the revised EPA...

Re: 2009 Aura - less quiet?

Unfortunately this is true. We all know GM's quality is at least comparable to its competitors but those who switched to Asian brands long ago need to have reasons to look at GM again. The styling...

Re: 2009 Aura - less quiet?

I think the frustration with dealers, salespeople and customers is that GM removes features and does not inform anyone of the changes. The cost-cutters have convinced themselves that no one notices,...

Re: 2009 Aura - less quiet?

There are other examples. The nice, quiet, expensive sounding turn signal chime is gone for 2009 Auras (and presumably Malibus and G6s) and has been replaced by the cheap sounding mechanical click...

Re: My Aura is being LEATHER-ized.

Did you do this because you simply wanted the leather for style or because of the original, unpleasant cloth? I'm just curious because I've been complaining about the impossible to clean, coarse...
