Used Saturn Astra for Sale
Reviews for Saturn Astra
This car is a dream to drive. It features taut steering, very powerful ABS braking (even on wet roads), decent acceleration (sure, it's no Ferrari!), and simply amazing gas mileage: mine averages 34/35 mpg on highways (I use Texaco 87 gasoline and Castrol Edge 5W-30 synthetic oil) even at 75 mph! It feels solid and well-built all around and is very comfortable. Mine is a manual and the only thing I'd change is adding a 6th gear (it'd make for even better fuel economy on highways by lowering rpm). It does get a bit noisy at higher speeds (65 mph and above), but it's nothing unbearable for me (my wife is much noisier!). The only downside to the taut shocks is that the ride gets somewhat bumpy on rough roads (especially on the backseats), but you can't have it all in life. Overall, it's an amazing car. GM should simply be ashamed of themselves for not adequately marketing and advertising this car back in 2008 and 2009. It breaks my heart to see all those UGLY Nissan Versas, Toyota Matrixs, Honda Fits and all the Mazdas out there (I hate them!), and to see almost NO Astras around. Everlasting shame on GM and all the idiots who run it (they deserve all the bad karma they get). Thank God for the Astra, and thank you OPEL for designing and building this wonderful car!
I love this car! I call it my mini SUV. It drives smooth, it is very comfortable, I am a big girl and I find it very roomy. I love the hatchback and have plenty of room for my shopping and my four large dogs. I put in $25.00 worth of gas a week and never have to worry it. The car even counts down the gas milage left to go when it has under a quarter of a tank. It comes with onstar and cruise control and the stereo sounds fine! I would recommend this vehicle to anyone thinking about buying a new car.
I absolutely love this car - after buying it I like it even better than I thought that I would. I purchased a 3-door, with the 5-speed manual transmission, optional upgraded stereo (Optra CD-40, I think it is called) with the 6-disc CD changer and the optional 5 spoke 18-inch tires and wheels. The performance, ride, handling, ergonomics, controls, exterior styling, etc. are excellent. I especially like the automatic rain sensing wipers, the electronic turn signal and wiper controls and all of the data and settings available via the display screen and computer controls (which come with the upgraded stereo). Now that it has turned cold the heated mirrors are a nice touch as well. The car has a lot of features for its price range. Even though it is geared low for performance, I have averaged 32 mpg over the 3,000 miles that I have had the car. Plus the car drives like a go-cart around the corners, has the smoothest shifting manual transmission that I have driven (I've been driving manual transmission cars for over 34 years now) and has excellent room inside.
