Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt.

Although I will admit my Astra would've been a much better car if it had the five-speed manual gearbox. Anyway, cool car and good luck!

when i was cruising a dealer yesterday, i saw they had just taken in a fresh trade, an 08 astra 5 door, red, dual panel moonroof, automatic. 44k miles. very nice shape!

what sort of gas mpg did you see with your automatic? I was contemplating telling offering to trade them my cobalt straight up.

My Astra averaged around 26 to 27 mpg. Long trips (250 miles plus) would net a 30 mpg average. Not bad, but I've managed to average 25 to 26 with the Charger since I've had it.

Don't get me wrong. The Astra -- at least here in the States, anyway -- is a neat car. It's handsome, about as common as a Corvette (seriously), and it will handily outpace a Cobalt or second-gen US Focus. But I just don't know if I would own one again, given the chance.
