So I found one in Rockford Illinios and I'm going to pick it up this weekend (its supposed to be -6 there on saturday so I'm going to die since I'm a florida boy) But at least I'll die owning to satur-opels
flying up on saturday and driving down saturday/sunday, I hope to pass by many skys in their garages where they should be in this weather.
Intend on passing by, Chicago, Indy, Nashville, and ATL.
FWIW, I have two Saturns, one is, of course, my Sky Redline, and the other is a 2003 Saturn LW300. I have 170k on my LW300 and it's still going strong and my DD and I am still averaging 24 mpg with its 3.0 V6. The LW has been the most reliable and trouble free car I have ever owned. So if you like the Astra, go for it regardless of the board's naysayers, or maybe that's bored naysayers.
