Default July 24th is getting close... and no web site update yet!

So July 24th is coming up very quickly, and the Saturn web site still doesn't allow you to configure your own Aura. Anyone want to take bets on when the site will update?

My guess: all models will be bumped up to the '07 MY on August 7th (first Monday after the start of August) and the Aura will appear on the regular site.

Do you use your powers for good, or for awesome?

I agree. I am monitoring my Aura order several times a week, it is still holding at 3400 Broadcast to Plant, however, I am familiar with the GM "Blackhole" Ordering System, orders when the reach 3400, don't update until they are built. Happened with my SKY order. Went 3000 for 40 days, then wham, blam, I had sequence, VIN, Built and released to carrier all on 1 report. Once I was sequenced & VINNED, it was built, shipped received in 16 days.

It's too bad they don't have the build your own up yet. They obviously have to get some dealer stock built up before they start making special orders, but the build your own is a good tool to see the price of what you want, and the packages available. That would all be set by now. Oh yeah, I saw one on the road!

Awesome sight wasn't it? I can't wait to see them on the road, but It will probably be my own I will see first. I am the only Pri 01 build at my dealer at this time. He does have 16 on order for dealer stock, but I am the first individual order processed.

Especially since they're placing magazine ads that tell you to build your own at Saturn.com - I saw one of these in the most recent Fast Company. Sloppy sloppy!

It was nice. I was most impressed by the back-end actually. The tail lights are especially nice. The front end was just nice, but not spectacular honestly. I suppose you'll be driving by as many store fronts with full windows as possible.

Wait, are you saying the Aura has high ego emissions?

Go here, and click on the third ad named "Mirror, Mirror".

Personally I think they're wrong... the L-Series obviously has lower ego emissions than the Passat

Aww, I don't have flash at work, I'll check at home. My SC1 has terribly high ego emissions I suppose It always drives slow right through town, with all those nice reflective store front

No I don't. I have been buying from this dealer 11 years now, AURA will be the 12 Saturn I have bought from them in as many years. My SKY R/L due in late Sept willbe 13. I I deal with the GM and the whole dealership is like a big family to me. I have no problem getting order status, and this is why I get the first car of each model I choose to buy. It has also gotten me personal recognition from Jill Ladjziak herself, heck I was even interviewed a while back by the Detroit Free Press.

I think you are talking along the lines of a quote by Winston Churchill about his successor as prime minister after WW2....

"He's a humble man with much to be humble about."

That's pretty cool Ernest.

When do you think dealers will start getting Auras in? Early August?

Our Gm was at a business meeting in KC this last week. Was told that Aura should be starting to ship in a couple of weeks! The official announcement is expected from saturn in a day or 2.

Just received e-mail from GM Canada in reply to my request as to when we can get info,specs,prices,etc re the AURA on their website. The GM answer was that website is not scheduled to be updated until "fall of this year".

They also said there was no info as to when dealers will be getting sales literature,brochures for the AURA.

This is not my idea of how you market a "brand saviour" vehicle that is already coming off the production line. You would almost get the impression that the AURA has just come off the drawing board much to the surprise of everyone at GM........Come on Jill and friends;you've been hyping this car for almost 2 years so how come you aren't ready to market it?
