2008 AURA XE
Default Picking up my new Aura Tuesday!

Just wanted to thank everyone who responded to a couple of questions I posted on here while I was considering the purchase of my Aura, and brag a little! I was waiting around to try and find a used one but finally took the plunge on a new one after seeing what discounts were out there, it was almost cheaper to buy new, and I could pick the options I wanted. I had a terrible time trying to find a 4cyl with the convenience and preferred packages, but the dealer by my house was the only one of the 5 locals dealers that had one...it's not my first choice in color but it will work (techno gray). Anyway, so far the dealer has been great.

They gave me $8800 for my 05 Cobalt that I have been trying to sell for $9000 and had no luck. I also managed to get $3500 off sticker by way of a $1000 supplier discount, $1000 regional rebate, $1000 GM loyalty and $500 in auto show cash.

My new baby was born 3/08 so it has all the mid year upgrades!! I'll post back tomorrow night and let everyone know how it goes tomorrow!

I'm a little nervous about the 4cyl and not getting the advanced audio package, but everyone on here raves about the 4 cyl and the stock radio, so I hope I'll be happy!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Congrats! And yes, in stock form, you should love the silent 2.4L and the stereo, especially coming from a Cobalt

I can't believe how quiet and smooth it is, I have only put about 30 miles on it but so far I am very impressed! A little nervous about how light the carpet is, it looks like it is dying to just get filthy and show all the dirt, so I'll have to be careful. So far though, I love it!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yeah it's a nice car...just got mine last week on 3/31.

After coming from a '07 Ion Redline......I can't believe how quiet this car is!

Makes it seem like my Redline was a race car or something (it had some rattles & you could here the stock exhaust & all the road noise).


I love mine...enjoy yours!!

Congrats on your new Aura. I am sure you will enjoy it. Don't worry about the light mats. Mine has black mats and THEY show everything. I just try and keep them as clean as possible.

Great!

As for the carpet...it's called All Season vinyl mats to match! Never have had a car without them, the easiest thing to clean, perfect carpet underneath, and custom fitted like anything OEM. Best recommendation I have for anyone, especially over carpet mats which are terrible in theory...because it's just more carpet to get dirty and always is disgusting just after typical daily use with shoes, dirt, wet, etc. Some dislike vinyl under their feet, I dislike carpet that looks awful with any use and is much harder to clean.

And, again, enjoy that peppy little 2.4L and its whisper quality

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Get the Saturn Rubber Floor Mats.....they're specifically designed for the Aura (obviously) and cut out perfect. Plus they say "Aura" on the front ones
