    Saturn Aura 2010 order guide up!!!

    despite all the doom and gloom surrounding Saturn right now there are still changes in place for the AURA sedan. Nothing major but the only change to mention is the addition of three new models

    meanwhile the Hybrid version remains pretty much unchanged except for two minor equipment and package deletions and the addition of a tire inflation kit

    Re: Saturn Aura 2010 order guide up!!!

    I am so glad I got a 2007 Aura. The first year bugs are now all worth it.

    Aura feature casualties:

    2008: Triple Laminated Windshield

    2009: 3.5 V6

    2010: Donut spare(?), side markers, and body colored mirros for the low trims.

    2008's casualty is the biggest of them all......

    ... No kidding...

    After seeing this, I'll keep my 2007 XE until it completely dies.

    The Aura was supposed to be a Euro-type car. While I understood GM's decision for taking the side markers off the Malibu, taking them off the Aura just makes the Aura a more expensive Malibu. No thanks, I'll pass.

    This is what the 2011 AURA will look like, cause GM will cut the sheet metal and frame to save money. You have to order seats seperate too.

    Wow so the 2010 Aura has lost:
    1) 3500 option
    2) Side marker lights
    3) Bodyside door moldings
    4) Laminated windshield
    5) Body colored mirrors
    6) Donut spare tire
    7) Power pedal option

    With the rate GM keeps decontenting these cars there will be nothing left by the time Saturn dies.

    I think some of that stuff was already gone on the '09 models. I know the 3500 definitely was, as was the power pedals; some of that stuff, well I never could figure it out (all models supposedly lost bodyside molding, then I saw XRs with it?). The Malibu lost some of it at the same time too (like the power pedals).

    3500 will not be missed. Rarely any were sold with power pedals. The body seide moldings chrome strips were ugly ugly ugly. looks much better without them. Balck mirrors are only on the XE-4. Side markers will be missed. I had no idea the laminated windshield was gone.. it was definitely supposed to help with quietness... I didnt even notice though.

    So does that mean the Mali doesn't have the laminated windshield either anymore?

    Did it ever have it? The laminated windshield going away coincides with the introduction of the current Malibu.
