2008 Astra XR
Default So Long, and Thanks for all the fish

The time has come for me to bid farewell to Saturn. After 12 years and six Saturns, I've made a change. I'm now working for the company formerly known as Saturn of St Paul - we're now White Bear Lake Mitsubishi/Suzuki.

Very attractive lease rates on the new Suzuki Kizashi combined with the uncertainty of the future for my Astra caused my jump. Here's a little something to leave with you.

Good luck--very nice choice on the Kizashi. Were I in the market for a midsize sedan that would definitely be on my list; it's a looker inside and out.

You should have waited until the launch of the Chevy Cruze. More bells and whistles were put in the Chevy than the Suzuki. Because, as most people should know, GM actually developed the Kizashi for Suzuki based off the Global Delta program (Delta 2).

The Kizashi comes with an engine that puts out a bit more HP and torque.
