Default Just bought a new Astra

I love it already, paid just under 13k for it with a stick and wheel upgrade. I cant believe the deals they're giving these things away for. Looking forward to talking to you guys in the future.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Just bought a new Astra

Congrats on the new car - sounds like you got an awesome deal. Stick around here and you'll learn a lot about your car.

On the downside, every time I hear about the deals people are getting now I'm kicking myself for what I paid (~ $19K out the door). Oh well, live and learn, right?

Default Re: Just bought a new Astra

Congrats on the buy. You will see that the Astra is a great little car! I hope that you love driving it as much as I do. I always used to default to my wife's Vue when we went out as a family...not any more!!!

Great job on the great deal. I paid $18k for mine back in November! Hindsight is a wonderful thing...if I only knew!

Definitely read through some of the other threads on this site. You will find a lot of positive people here who are always willing to lend a piece of advice!

Good Luck! Happy driving!
