The Aura's build quality is likely the same as the Malibu. They are built at the same plant on the same platform. The current Malibu isnt all that attrative but it's build quality is just fine. The 2008 Malibu is much better looking though. Saturns actually had worse build quality than other GM makes until recently because of the polymer panels. Cheap the gaps on the S series, Vue or Ion and compare them to steel bodied GM models.
There are some nice deals on the Aura now, $1750 cash back in my area.

$2,250 discount in Northern Virginia (as confirmed today by Saturn of Sterling, VA) for non-GM owners... valid through 05/23/07, then down to 1,500 through 7/9/07....or 1.90 - 5.90 percent financing through 7/9/07..
Test drove the XR today (black, with Morroccan brown interior). Very, very classy....Great space too (I'm 6-6 and had no problems..)...

I just read, on the Cadillac web site, that the 3.6 VVT engine in the CTS will be bumped from 255 H-P (2007) to 300 H-P for 2008.
What are the chances that most of that increase is in the EMC and that the Cadillac EMC would be "Plug-n-Play" with the Saturn Aura??????

No Aura redline has been announced but some believe if it is announced it will have either the 275hp or 300hp version of the 3.6. I highly doubt GM will use the direct injection V6 in a Saturn. Who knows, if sales dont pick up the redline model may never come.

A 300 H-P Aura (Red Line) would be a real contender down here in the SoCal desert cities. I see more European and Japanese Hot Rods than you can believe. This has to be one of the most fun areas to live if you can afford these mega-dollar factory street racers. I even saw a V12 Audi a couple days ago.
The Aura Red Line with 300 H-P and a six speed would sell like hotcakes at IHOP down here if they can keep the price under $30K.
What I want to know is how much of the H-P increase is from the EMC and how much from other (physical) changes to the current 3.6 VVT twin cam engine?
#1264 of 1478 Just out of curiosity....

...I wonder why GM doesn't use VVTI technology instead of just VVT? Not only could they get more HP, they'd also get better fuel economy.
