Re: Stuck CD

The exact same thing happened to me and no matter what I tried I could not get the CD out. I tried putting another CD in and pulling it out before it got sucked in. Once I did that it would actually...

Re: Alright, we need a turbo

It seems that if you really want to do a turbo setup you gonna have to build your own kit or import one from Europe(if it exists for the 1.8). There just aren't enough Astra owners out there to make...

Re: First and second strike in 2 days

Just yesterday I was getting my hair cut and I could see my Astra from inside and a white suburban pulled up and parked next to my car. I was watching and it looked like the guy was being careful. I...

Re: Debadged it

Titan, the car looks real good. Black was my first color choice but they didn't have a 5 door with the sports handling so I had to go with blue (which I still like a lot). I am not sure whether or...

Re: cd doesn't eject

I had nearly the same thing happen to my CD player. Except I went to eject a CD one day and it said No CD. So I grabbed another CD and it took it, then it gave an error message. When I pressed eject...

Re: Astra Tuners

What are looking at doing to your Astra? Power, handling, looks? Just curious as I spent many years modifing my first saturn (94 SC1). I will probably hold out for a year or two before doing any mods...

Re: To sports package, or not to sports package?

No, wasn't me. But a friend of mine spotted a blue 5 door just like mine the other day and thought it was me. So apparently there must be another astra running around gville somewhere.

Re: To sports package, or not to sports package?

I first test drove a 5 door without the sport package and it still drove pretty well, but I have to admit I did not push it very hard on the test drive. The sport package and a manual were a must for...

Re: How comfy is the sport handling package for a long drive?

I have the 5 door XR with the sport handling package and leather seats. I can say that the ride is excellent and the seat are very comfortable. I drove 5 and 1/2 hours from Gainesville, FL to Atlanta...

Re: USA Today Drives the '08 Saturn Astra XR5

The best part about On Star is the fact that they can notify local emergency officials if you are involved in an accident. The navigation is ok but would be better if they had a screen that showed...

Re: Finally saw another Astra

I have yet to see another Astra on the road here in Gainesville, FL although I know of at least one other person in town that has one.

Re: We bought one.....

Congrats on the new car. The Astra is also my very first brand new car and after nearly 2000 miles I like the car more than when I first got it. I have a 5 speed, but I've noticed the gas mileage...

Re: Saturn Astra Review

The quality of the interior was one of the deciding factors that made me choose to buy an astra. My wife's VW passat interior does not look as nice as the astra's interior. Now the passat is a 2000...

Re: Spy Photos: 2010/2011 Saturn Astra

I agree with titan12, also if the Astra does make it here in NA for the next generation you are going to see a lot more options added especialy engine choices. Like a redline version which I think...

Re: Hey! Soon to be new owner!

Its a huge change from my SC1. Over the years of owning that car I swapped the engine for a twin cam, added numerous bolt on performance parts, and added disc brakes. But after test driving the Astra...
