Default Astra is Gaining Momentum in the Market

A new feeditems entry has been added:

Astra is Gaining Momentum in the Market

Quote:
Gregory J. Wilcox, columnist from the San Bernardino Sun, recently talked to Saturn spokesman Steve Janisse about the car's sales performance since its launch this past January. The Astra's sales started out around 500 per month, but rose to almost 2000 units last month. "It definitely did get off to a slow start," Janisse told Wilcox. "It's been pretty fun to watch it take off."

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Astra is Gaining Momentum in the Market

Most of the people at my office had never heard of an Astra, and most had not seen one before. Everyone who looked at the car seemed to like it though. They seemed most impressed with the amount of interior room and trunk space in such a small car. I tell everyone that it is much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. Everyone is always surprised by the size of the sunroof also.

Maybe I will start a new trend at my office. I was the first person with a Vue back in 2005, and there were 5 of them in my office of about 120 by the time I turned mine in. There are also 3 Aura's. There used to be a few S-Series, but they have all been replaced. I think we have a pretty high percentage of Saturn drivers at my office.

I was alsovery surprised that I could fit a car seat and two booster seats across the back. I could barely do this in my VUE. I don't have to do that much, since we have the family hauler for that, but it's nice to know that I can if I need to.

Well it will get another boost as an Astra helps our 'heroes' in Transformers: Rise of the Fallen.
