2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Epa & Mpg (hwy)???

It's simple advertising. Wouldn't you want to advertise the highest number possible (especially when that's what every other car maker advertises)?

My retailer will advertise even higher mpg. I think they have an Astra with "36mpg" on the windshield. I guess someone told them they got 36 for a tank (it wasn't me, I've only gotten to 35).

I noticed that when you look at the prices of Saturns on their web site, they include destination charges. If you look at the prices of Hondas on their web site, they don't include it (it's in the fine print). It makes their cars seem cheaper than they really are at first glance.

Past Saturns: 97 SL2, 01 SC2, 04 VUE, 08 Astra, 02 L200.
