2007 AURA XE
Default Error in Road & Track Magazine.

While reading through my October '08 issue of Road & Track I noticed an error.

There is a section about "What's new" for 2009 models.

If you look under Saturn, it mentioned that the XE model was deleted for 2009.

The Aura has replaced its 4-speed automatic gearbox with a fuel-economy-boosting 6-speed. The XR can now be purchased with a 4-cylinder, and the XE has been deleted. The Astra and Sky are hardly touched while the Outlook gets direct injection.
Should I write a letter correcting them? I'm thinking about it.

The XE-6 was deleted, but yes I would write to them about it so they can clarify it.

Well yes.. Especially those of us with XE-6 Auras know that. However, if their intention was that, they should have been more clear. I'm sure things like this happen all the time, I just don't usually really notice things like this.
