Pros: panaramic sunroof
Cons: placement of sideview mirror controls
Advice: take a test drive and get ready to be impressedTest drove top of the line XR package. Very impressed with it being a Saturn. Lots of comfort and 'creature features'. Rear passenger audio control is a plus for long trips with kids. Dealer told me it came with wireless headphones. Enjoyed the 6 speed 'triptronic' style manual shifting and how effortlessly it shift down as you come to a stop. Remote starting is an added bonus as I test drove in January 2007. All that under $30,000 is a very good deal considering the competition. Looking at a 2006 Hyundai Azera also.
Pros: beautiful car
Cons: the radio
Advice: Take a test drive and you will love it.The only problem I have with the new Aura xr is the stastic that I have is when the radio is tuned to am. I've taken the car in twice to find out why the stastic. They tell me that there is a problem with the antana. Hope they correct it.
