Oh man, looks like the Asstra is discontinued after one model year... for shame. Oh well, from the looks of things, the local dealer has enough of them to last at least another year. AH-HA_wink.gif

What makes you say that? It's too new to the Saturn line-up to receive any model year changes, which is why it isn't listed.

Just stirring the pot, so to speak. And it does need some changes, like a tan/black interior choice, a 12 hour clock display instead of 24, better base wheels, a couple of new exterior color choices, Red- and Greenline models, etc., all of these things would improve the car.

Right, at least in a few ways--like with the Astra not yet listed.

Most everything that is, is shown now, though.

I highly doubt it. I'm just starting to see them around lately. They're probably waiting on GME for the info.

Correct-o. That was a joke, but the Astra info will be out soon enough, just delayed a bit because of the unique Euro-base, etc. probably.

Looks like the bluetooth whiners won't have anything to whine at GM about starting in 2009. GM was serious when they said they were deploying bluetooth pretty much across the board. It looks like in 2009 GM will have more models with Bluetooth than anyone else out there.

Yeah, but that's because GM has more models in general than anyone else out there. AH-HA_wink.gif

Still, it looks like Bluetooth is going into everything from the Cobalt on up with the exception of the Colorado/Canyon and the work trucks.


No one else has bluetooth in that percentage of their lineup do they? Maybe Honda?

If you just mean "available" instead of "standard," Nissan is at 100%. So is Subaru, but they only have 5 models here.

ChryCo has it available in everything but the Viper, Sprinter (I think), Crossfire, and Wrangler. That's about 86%, so I think GM has them beat, if only by a little bit.

Toy's missing the Yaris and all of Scion.

Just since you asked...

That's one of the reasons that people complain that GM is behind technologically... because most everyone else has it already.

Blue color looks good on the Sky. Should be a nice addition.

Well they finally fixed the Bluetooth issue. Now they just need to up the Auras V6 mileage to Accord/Camry/Sonata levels, add a rear seat center armrest and overhead assist grips and fix the terrible electric power steering on 4 banger models. Oh and where is the 4 door sedan Astra and 36 highway Ecotec AKA Cobalt/G5?
