Vehicle Description

Wolfchase Auto Sales is presenting a 2008 Saturn Astra XR for sale with only 69k miles on it. The Astra is built in Antwerp, Belgium by GM's Opel division and is one of the best selling cars in Europe; competing primarily with the Volkswagen Golf. During the end-years of GM's Saturn division here in North America, they decided to market the Opel Astra  to the US, importing it with Saturn badges. Unfortunately, it came at the wrong time with the "Great Recession" just around the bend. With that said, GM entered bankruptcy and had to shed several brands (SAAB, Hummer, Saturn and Pontiac). Thus, the Astra was sold only for the 2008 model year (with only approximately 11k imported) in North America but continues to be built and sold all over the world. After driving this vehicle, I was thoroughly impressed with its handling abilities and braking. It is also an extremely safe compact car with stability control, traction control, ABS braking, and 8 airbags....just look at the IIHS tests. This particular example also has a very rare, factory panoramic sunroof that would have required a specially ordered vehicle..estimated to be 1 of only 40 in the US. Also, this is a top-of-the-line XR model with sport fabric, 16" alloy wheels, surround sound AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, and OnStar. It was obviously a very well cared for vehicle with a good service history at Certified GM workshops. Carfax also indicates a clean history with no accidents or damage reported (you may view a copy on the website). 

This last week, I took the vehicle to Gwatney SAAB of Memphis and had it serviced (oil/filters change, etc.), along with taking it to Jim Keras Chevrolet to take care of the open recall and to be inspected (to which it passed with a "clean bill of health"). I do have extended warranties available and can ship to you anywhere in the world, along with assisting you in securing financing with a bank/credit union. You may view the vehicle at any time at our dealership (Wolfchase Auto Sales) located 2 blocks west of the Wolfchase Galleria Mall on Stage Road or can contact me to make an appointment. To discuss, you may reach me at 901-428-2518. Thanks, David Knowles.
