2008 AURA XR
2008 SKY Red Line
Default Happy Anniversary!

7 years ago today, I purchased my Saturn AURA XR.

I first went to a Saturn store in August of 2006 immediately after the AURA came out and new if I was going to buy a new vehicle, it would be the AURA XR in Ocean Mist. 2 years later, in August 2008, I purchased my AURA. I traded her in 2011 at a large GM dealer and bought her back exactly 50 weeks later in 2012. I really like this Saturn AURA!

I think this makes you a diehard Saturn owner. Hopefully you enjoy trouble free ownership.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I think you're right. When you('ve) own(ed) 3 Saturns, I suppose that indicates something that's positive. As I wrote in one of my earliest posts, "Iím glad to be a new Saturn Aura owner and part of this new Saturn experience."

I still don't regret having purchased either the Saturn AURA or SKY Redline (mechanically, speaking). Thus far, the AURA is holding up as well as our Hondas have. BTW, I just turned 31k miles. Not bad at all for a vehicle that was purchased in 2008.

Congrats! There seem to be a lot of anniversaries on here lately. I really enjoy seeing all the stories... it reminds me of the "good old days" of Saturn. We're getting ready to celebrate one with our 2005 Vue that turns 11 years old in about a month. It still feels new to me......

Here's to (at least!) another 7 years with your Aura!!

Charlie, thank you for responding. I've loved your site ever since I found it during the summer of 2006 when I started researching "Opel and Saturn". Still visit saturnfans almost daily.

Default Re: Happy Anniversary!

This Labor Day weekend (August 31 / September 1) 2008, I purchased my 2008 Saturn AURA XR. I first test drover her on Tuesday, August 26, 2008 and bought her on Sunday, August 31 and completed the paper work with the finance office on Labor Day, Monday, September 1, 2008.

In July 2011, I traded her in toward a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS Convertible. 50 weeks later, in July 2012, I purchased my original Saturn AURA XR back.

A little background here:

http://saturnfans3.saturnfans.com/~s...d.php?t=182432

This weekend, exactly 11 years after my original purchase, I still love my Saturn AURA XR as much as when I first test drove her a few days before. For the past 7 months, she has become my daily driver again.

I just had complete professional detail done inside, outside and under the hood, including the hazy headlights. She looks as good as brand new. I just really love this AURA XR!
