I'd seriously question this dude's ability to review cars when he doesn't even know what equipment is in the car he's reviewing. He states that it has an AUX jack when in fact it doesn't. Also, who in their right mind would spend 20,900 bucks on an Astra XE when you could get an XR instead???

Sure, every little smalltown hick newspaper that reviews this car comes away saying "Ohhh, shiny new car from Europe, me likey!" Where are the credible, reputable reviews being posted on here, hmm?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I agree with your point about spending $20,900 on an XE model (just get the XR!), but he might not be wrong about the Aux jack. Some dealers are installing them aftermarket. It's a sensible way for them to boost profit margin and sell more cars...
