2008 Astra XE
Default Re: Astra roll call!

Purchased my Star Silver XE on April 16. Options are auto tranny and heated seats. Vehicle also has pinstripes from the dealer (Saturn of Lynnwood).

Mileage is sitting at about 2,700 and my MPG from my last tank (mostly street commute in hilly Seattle area) was 27.

Only mod is a K&N air filter -- got it cheap from

Car is a great daily driver. Only downsides are the cruise control (never could figure out how to operate it on a 300-mile cross-state trip in May) and the upholstery -- a magnet for lint and hair.

Have yet to see another Astra on the road.

Previously owned a 2004 Ion3. Drove it for three years with no problems, except for the infamous front sway bar bushings.
