Road Test: Kiss My Astra

Quote:
Jill Ciminillo from the Chicago Sun Times: The exterior lines of the Astra are very sleek and smooth, both in the five-door and three-door models. I liked the bold Saturn grille, but it's the taillights that seal the deal. As another journalist passed me in the fast lane, I had a moment to ponder the (cough) Astra, and it was stunning.

The reviewers were both female (not a wisecrack - just noting it). I agree though, the Astra is *very* easy to shift so if they had trouble they're not very good at driving manuals. I'm going to be teaching my wife after I get a few hundred more miles on it and I think it's going to be a very easy car to learn on. Light clutch pedal - good release point - easy shifter.
