6 speed auto gives me 29 mpg and even with the v6. This car is very stylish and love to drive it! Has all kinds of power and the heated seats are great. The tilt wheel is useless cause it barely moves to make a difference. The leather seats are great, always wanted leather.

I just had to buy 1 more Saturn

I wasn't in the market to buy a new car, but once Saturn announced that they were officially going out of business, I decided to buy 1 more Saturn before they were gone. This is my 3rd Saturn over the last 17 years, and without a doubt, the best I've driven. My first 2 Saturns ended up with over 350,000 miles between them, and I expect this one to go even further! If you can still find one around, this would be a great vehicle to buy.

I bought my Saturn Aura a few months ago and I love it! It rides nice and smooth and looks so classy on the inside and out. I love the heated seats and the auto start and would definitely recommend that feature to anyone living in a colder climate. My car does awesome performance wise. When you floor it you'd better hold on! But then again I went from a Dodge Caliber I4 with a CVT to a 3.6L V6! Big difference!! The Saturn Aura is roomy in the back and has a nice feature of cuped out back seats so the person in the back has extra leg room. Brilliant. Love my car :)

Buy American

by from Fl on December 29, 2010

Ride is bigger than it looks. Very responsive handling, lots of power for a 4-cylinder. great fuel economy. Styling makes me feel young. I did good this time.

I bought my 2008 Aura used so far this is the best car i have owned. The ride is smooth awesome stereo system. I have the four cylinder which gets awesome milage on the highway, but found that I'm only getting around 20 mpg city. I've had some minor issues like a tire sensor going bad, and some trim quality issues. overall though great car. I even rear ended someone with it barely received any damage

Another great Saturn

by from Terre Haute, IN on September 21, 2012

This is my 3rd Saturn, and as good as the other two were (93 SL2 and 04 Ion), this was by far the best. Very well designed, very solidly built, fairly comfortable, and plenty of room (even for a tall guy like me). I have never had any problems with it, even after 84,000 miles. I'm not planning on buying another car any time soon, but when I do, I'm going to have a very hard time finding something worthy of replacing my Saturn!

I owned two Saturns, was so sorry about the terrible mistake the gov. of this country made by cutting this car line, knew right away we were in for a troubled future. It is now 2014 this car has been a perfect ride from day one in June 2009, only needed one set of brakes the whole time and one set of tires, just oil changes and minor stuff covered by a great warranty.

I purchased this one owner Aura XR 3 weeks ago and so far I'm so impressed with this car! The fit and finish is great, the ride is great, and for a V-6 the MPG is great too! I'm a feather foot and am trying to tweak all the MPG I can get out this V6 6 speed auto and so far after 3 weeks I am getting just over 30 MPG! The car has a readout for MPG ad I manually calculated it and both are within 1 MPG of each other. I really like this car and recommend it to anyone searching used you owe it to yourself to look at an Aura!

Started buying Saturns in 05 with a new VUE, 4 cyl manual 5 speed, for my wife. While trading it in a couple of years ago saw a 07 Sky, 4 cyl auto 18K, on the lot and bought it for myself as a summer car. This Spring I needed to replace my QX-4 and found the '09 AURA XR, 4 cyl 6 speed auto 24K, with every option except a sun roof. I wanted a 4 door sedan and looked at Saturns naturally. The VUE was a great New England car, the SKY speaks for itself (and more) and this AURA is fantastic. 4 cly has plently of power and love the 6 speed auto or manual with paddles. So far a great car for the $$, excellent gas milage and performace. Even though they don't make anymore, I'll keep buying them!
