    2008 Saturn Astra Xr — The new 2008 Saturn Astra is a great car for the average guy or gal that whats something sporty yet fuel effecient. The car has a solid chassis, and stiff suspension but lacks power to match. The tiny 1.8L Ecotec just doesn't have enough fun factor. Now, if we in North America could get the 2.0L turbo from the Opel Astra in europe, this car would be fantastic for the average low budget tuner.

    Pros: Suspension, Trac-Control, Lo-Pro 18", Chassis, Interior,

    Cons: Lack of displacment, Natural Aspiration, Trac-Control

    '08 Astra Knocks It Into Outer Space — My first new car is economical, fun to drive, well-built, and Euro-stylish. I absolutely love it. While the lack of easily accessible cupholders and an Mp3 jack would have been nice, this car is awesome, and I thoroughly enjoy every time I'm behind the wheel.

    Pros: Style, Ride, Handling, Comfort, Interior, Space, Quality

    Cons: Strange feature combinations mean I didn't get everything I wanted. Better cupholders and an MP3 jack would have been nice.

    My Astra — While it is not the fastest car I have ever owned (1982 Ford Mustang 5.0 H.O.) the performance is good. The tight suspension makes cornering a breeze. the snug fitting seats, and Tilt/ telescopic wheel make it very easy to find a comfortable driving position. This European built car has alot of small details that add up to a well thought out car..Express down windows (can be opened with the RKE) , trip computer, 6 standard air bags, 7 speaker stereo with CD. Onstar is great, and the "Safe and Sound" package is free for the first year. I now drive, even when I have no place to go!

    Pros: Looks Great, Fun to drive, and Great on Gas

    Cons: Cheap floor mats and carpet, no cup holder or center console. Could use a sixth gear

    The Astra — This is an excellent car it handles the road like it is on railes and it's unique sporty looking body allows you to show off...but yet like every other car it has it's ups and it's downs one of the downs is putting in a car seat i mean sure a 2 door is more sporty looking but really do you know how hard it is to get a car seat in and out every week!!! :( Sure it is a great car but with it you must remember that there is no such thing YET as a PEFECT car!

    08 Astra — it handles great. though there are some downfalls, the car is very solid. i wish that GM would have brought over more of the other engines though. the cost to own this car has yet to be detirmined. the care is a blast to drive because of how well it handles in the tight corners.

    Pros: handling

    Cons: needs more get up and go

    I've Only Had It For A Bit, But So Far So Good. — I love the way the car looks. The leather is a little stiff, hopefully it will soften up as I put more mileage on it. The factory 18" make a massive difference. The acceleration on the car is borderline pathetic, especially for a car that looks this fast. The handling is another story; sticky rubber, firm suspension settings and a wide track make it corner with no fuss and no drama.

    Pros: Looks fantastic, Handles like it's on rails, New car smell

    Cons: Mediocre power, lack of aux. input for audio system, Bad blind spot on driver side

    U Should Buy One — very cool car, I read the USA has a turbo version with 260hp, i wish that model would have come to canada i would've bought it. Yes it is a fun car to drive cause it has no body roll, so i can go around tight corners and not slow down. I've slid all 4 tires around corners from cornering so hard and with no body roll, it's awesome.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: traction control, safest car under $25k.

    Cons: better stereo would b good and maybe a turbo
