So does the Aura continue to have the panoramic sunroof or not? A more complete model year change guide for the Aura I saw indicated that the panoramic roof was being dropped here as well.

Also, does anyone else find the "extra cost paint" kick to be getting a little old? Paying extra just to get *black*? Give me a break.

There also seems to be some confusion as to whether or not you can order an Aura with a 2.4L Ecotec that is not a hybrid?

Anymore info on that as well?

According to dealer guides as well as folks I spoked to up in Detroit, the only way to get a 4cyl Aura is with the hybrid powertrain.

I do. Don't think too many people are going to pay $200 more for a different shade of red or black. I think they dropped this for 08 on the Impala and now it turns up again on the Aura. But they did need to drop that Berry Red that only Saturn has been using for the last 10 + years.

Actually, it was dropped from the G6 as well. 2007 is the last year for it. I'm glad I picked up my GTP when I did, the GXP is fugly and actually LOSES options.

It would really have been nice to see the Aura 3500 with a 6 speed automatic option and a low cost 2.4 Ecotec for around 19K.
