Ugh, I believe he was referring to the ones slightly under the rear back seats.the ones in the doors are close to useless though, ok for bottled water.
If people don't start buying the Astra, this may all be academic. At the end of April only 909 had been sold and some 9000 were inventory around the country.
I like how everyone says about the mileage being low. A coworker has a Toyota Camry Hybrid that gets him 36 mpg....on the highway...I really like the Astra. Would love to get a 3 door, but lack of sunroof is a real downer.....wished it was about $1500 cheaper and got about 3-4 MPG more.

Ok, happy to stand corrected.
My Aussie spec Astra CDX (5dr) has cupholders in each front door (2) (almost useless), an impression in the glovebox lid to use when stationary (1)(never even tried to use it), and a box at the rearmost spot of the centre console (1) - almost behind the driver for shorties (the best spot).
Nothing under the rear seat, I presume they slide out like a CD tray?
The Saturn must be a higher spec than we get.
The Ford Focus did just fine in its first generation. You 'do' know it was designed by Ford Europe, right? :lmao:This car never wowed me and it doesn't seem to be wowing the reviewers or the general public. I don't think European cars sold as American really work out that well, ie: Eagle Premier.
I am sure someone might want to quote me and say, "But the Astra is a different segment than the Eagle and blah blah blah."
That isn't my point. The Saturn Astra is too European to be "American," and doesn't have what an American consumer is shopping for. Too expensive for that you get and underpowered. It's a flop no matter how you slice it.
