Re: My new Aura XR

Glad you like your car. I hope it gives you many miles of enjoyable and trouble-free driving!

I don't think you give other people enough credit when you say that they're speculating from pictures....

Re: Armrests..was Jill Lajdziak blind???

They're soft in the worst way. Put a finger in it and it'll threaten to implode. There's nothing behind the rubbery plastic except at the outer corner where it juts out. Anywhere else you're pressing...

If this is what was redone, I can't imagine what was there originally.

Indeed. I was particularly amused by this:

Re: Drove a Aura XE & Aura XR today...LOTS of pics!

I couldn't agree more. It's actually pretty worrysome to me. They don't feel like they will hold up at all.

It's programmable, but that's the default.

Re: Aura at Saturn of Little Rock

I'm beginning to agree. The Aura certainly looks better in black as it highlights the chrome accents. I just saw a LaCrosse (that's Allure to the Canadians) in black and it even looked good.

Re: Lease rates? Any lease one yet?

Just to make sure, was that rate for a normal lease or a balloon lease (GM Smart Buy)?

Re: Aura in Rochester NY

Actually my Saturn dealer did not ask for my license, which was a refreshing change from other dealers who have made copies of it.

Nobody should act 17, ever. Acting older than you are is no...

Re: My AURA XE Roadtest Review

This reminds me of the Apple-heads who balked when they started using Intel processors. "Gah, can't have an Intel Mac! I might as well go buy a PC!" Anyone who does quickly realizes that it's out of...

Just don't act 17 and they won't know the difference. Wear a nice shirt and good fitting pants, keep your hands out of your pockets, make eye contact with the salesperson, and speak in complete...

Re: Aura horn ?

Oh yes - I made a note to test this! It's dual tone, thank god.

Was the single tone horn a philosphy or just cheapness? I've hated it for five years in my L.

Re: Aura IQ test

Note the competitors section... Accord and Passat. Doesn't seem so wrong to hold the Aura up to the Passat's interior build quality now!

Re: My AURA XE Roadtest Review

Seconded - one thing that really disconcerted me about the other cars I've test driven lately (Mazda6, Jetta, Legacy) is the very soft brake pedal. It felt like I was hitting a brake button on a...

If that's the way you feel then I'm sure you can buy pretty much anything and be happy these days. I happen to feel that little things create an impression of design quality which is important. It's...

Re: Was in an Aura today...my opinion

There's no release for the fuel filler door. Just press on the left side and it springs open.

Re: Is the Aura Car of The Year potential?

David Booth from the National Post certainly thinks so (http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/columnists/story.html?id=dde79108-c86d-4b37-ac7c-78e5ca7b1854):

Re: My AURA XE Roadtest Review

I really have to disagree with you regarding the Mazda3. Mazda has the best exterior styling of any non-luxury automaker (IMHO, and excluding the "new" Saturns), but their interiors fall far short....

Edmund's Karl on Cars blog reviews the Aura XE

Edmund's "Karl on Cars" blog has reviewed the Aura XE (http://blogs.edmunds.com/.ee939bc).



I have to say I agree with him on materials quality. The door lock knobs looked very cheap on the XE...

Re: Was in an Aura today...my opinion

Close... but no cigar. The last Passat was based on the A4, actually. The new Passat is on the A platform with the Golf (Rabbit) / Jetta / Audi A3 and the upcoming Tiguan compact SUV.

Re: Was in an Aura today...my opinion

Why would you pick that over the Accord V6 6MT sedan?



I think the Aura is intended to be more sporting, in line with the Mazda6 and Altima but with more of a European feel. It's definitely got...
