About Saturn Astra

Influenced by European flavor, Saturn Astra was produced by a German automobile manufacturer, the subsidiary of the General Motors Adam Opel GmbH (Opel) and sold under the subsidiary of General Motors Saturn Corporation (Saturn LLC) brand Saturn for the 2008 model year in the United States as a compact/small family car. Originally introduced to replace the Saturn Ion as the brand's smallest model, Astra was a captive import car. But due to slow sales, GM decided to end the import of the Astra and it discontinued the Saturn brand in 2010 eventually.
Saturn Astra made its debut at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show for the 2008 model year. It was offered in two body styles: 3-door and 4-door hatchback and went on sale on January 2, 2008. 3-door Astra came in base-level XE and sportier XR trim levels while 4-door Astra was offered in XR trim level. It was well-equipped and had standard six airbags, stability control, a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a CD player. And more luxurious model offered quicker steering, a sport-tuned suspension, air-conditioning, alloy wheels and an upgraded audio system. During its whole life, Saturn Astra was powered by a 1.8 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 138 horsepower and 126 pound-feet of torque, and this engine sent power through either a standard 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.

In case the vehicle loses power while acceleration and consumes excessive oil, once both the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light come on, you need to set out to inspect the Astra radiator hose, cam gear, cooling hose, coolant reservoir, head gasket, intake manifold gasket and thermostat.
Second, on Saturn Astra, suspension failure is also a very common and serious issue.
