Should I buy a 2008 astra? It passed the mechanics inspection however people are telling me that parts are impossible to find. Is there another vehicle with similar parts?

Saturn's were all there own, nothing came close to fitting from other makes. So my opinion is do not buy it, you will be in for grief down the road. Look for something that is still being made but stay away from Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Range Rover, once they get a few miles on them they start to cause you real problems. Find something you like, check consumer reports for problems and go from there.

I drive a 2008 Astra. Yes, it is true that parts will be harder and harder to find as time goes on, because this car was basically a carbon copy of the Opel Astra. I haven't had any problems with my Astra yet, but that's not to say problems won't appear farther down the line. I agree with looking at consumer reviews about different vehicles, but don't let the few bad ones scare you away. The Saturn Astra is a great car, and I would have no problem recommending the car to a friend.
