From MotherProof.com: The new ad campaign for Saturn features a man walking into a Saturn dealer and promptly walking back out the door to take a second look at the sign and make sure he's in the right place. The message is that Saturn's got a whole new look

Default Re: 2008 Saturn Astra XR Review

I'd like to know more about this stroller and why the reviewer feels the need to take a stroller to the grocery store. How exactly do you shop for groceries with a stroller and a cart at the same time? That in itself would present a challenge I wouldn't bother with. I'd put the kid in the cart, but that's just me. They make compact strollers too, ya know just like they make big "joggers". You wouldn't take your jogger stroller to the grocery store on a stock-up mission, would you? Some people seem to think they need one device for every use, this just isn't realistic. Just as I have different tools for different, but similar jobs and I am not a mechanic nor a builder of any professional sort. I'll bet I could change a tire with a set of vise-grips, but a lug wrench would do a better job of it.

Give me choices in powertrain, great handling and decent MPG and I will buy a Saturn again.

We have a Peg Pergo stroller for the grandkids. It just fits in the back of our Protege5 and I suspect it will just fit in the Astra. You truly have to pack stuff around the stroller once it is in there. However, you can pile stuff on top of it with the hard cover still in place, so I don't think the cargo space is as bad as she describes. True, if we go grocery shopping with the grandkids, we don't take the stroller. On the other hand, two large car seats fit very nicely in the back seat with plenty of space between them for a diaper bag or something. Since we dont' have the kids every day, the lack of SUV (what the momma needs) is not an issue.
