Re: Aura XR - most powerful FWD on the road?

Not sure about nowadays, but IIRC the Chevy Impala SS has a 5.3L V8 that put out about 303 HP. So in terms of most powerful FWD car, that might've been it. The older Caddy STS used to be FWD and...

$1.369 per litre ($5.15 US/gal) in Calgary. I hear some places in BC are nearly 20 cents more per litre. I'm planning a road trip home to Vancouver Island in August. Thankfully my Aura gets...

Re: Anyone else in a deep freeze?

yeah I get the ice warning every morning from Dec-Feb :)

Even if I had remote start, I wouldn't fire up my car every couple hours. I think it would be unnecessary wear and tear on the car and a...

Re: Anyone else in a deep freeze?

You guys get some of the good stuff too. I'm glad we're not alone.

I used to live on the West Coast...Vancouver Island. It rarely gets below freezing there, but it rains constantly and you can...

Re: Anyone else in a deep freeze?

This isn't normal. Average mean temperature for Southern Alberta in January is around -8C. Although Jan/Feb is when we usually get hit with the occasional blast of frigid temps like now. We're...

Re: Anyone else in a deep freeze?

LOL...I use the term 'working efficiently' very loosely when referring to most (not all) construction workers. Actually, here in Calgary, buildings go up at a furious pace and the demand for workers...

Re: Aura XE 4cyl 1,000 mile review

Glad to hear that the 4 cyl Aura is getting good reviews. I was one of the nay sayers and didn't think it would work well, but I'm pleased that it's turning out to be a good thing.

Re: Are you subscribed to onStar?

I wasn't planning to renew after the free trial ran out, but I've decided to keep it. I do drive outside the city on occasion where there's little traffic so knowing that the car will call for help...

Re: What the 2010 Aura could look like

Not bad...I see a lot of CLS class Benz in it. Not sure about the rear treatment, but front view is slick.

Re: 59,964 Aura total sales for 2007

K-1, that's a really interesting statistic. Saturn sells nearly twice the number of Aura's per shop than Chevy does Impalas? It'll be really interesting to see what the Malibu does.

I think I...

Re: Front Air Dam

Noticed mine had a piece missing a few weeks back. I'm due for oil and tire rotation shortly so will see if they'll be replacing it. I think I scraped on a dip leaving a parking lot.

Re: Traction control on the XE

T/C in the 07 XE is basically ABS in reverse. If wheelslip is detected it cuts engine power til traction is regained. It can catch you by surprise if you're not used to it. I leave it on all the...

Re: Well I got back into an Aura

Re: First Time Aura in Snow and Ice

Yep, the stock Hankooks seem to be a really good all season tire that handles snow/ice quite well. Got our first dusting of snow here too. They're predicting a long, cold winter up here :(

Re: Real world mileage for 3.5
