    Default Question on the Vectra dash

    For my UK/Euro Vectra C owners, I have a simple question.

    What is the keypad for on the center stack? Does that belong to some type of phone?

    If it's part of the stereo headunit matey, it sounds like you have the phone setup yes.

    Welcome Aura XR, nice to see the first US 'Vectra' join the club.

    We have just learn here that GM are to launch the 3dr and 5dr Astra in America under the Saturn brand. But they look even more like the european models than the Aura does the Vectra.

    If you could post up a picture of your dash, hopefully we could find out for sure what it is.

    And welcome again.

    Thanks guys, but our dash here is completely different than yours. I do not have the pushbuttons, but I have seen them in pictures from other owners and I wonder what they are. The phone system in my car is voice activated only, there is a button on the steering wheel and one on the rearview mirror to activate it, then it works from voice commands.

    Yes, I was very happy when the Aura came over. I drove my poor dealer crazy because I kept checking to see when they were coming, pimping him for information. My first new car is (I still have it and drive it) a Saturn I bought when the brand first appeared in the early 90's. I have over 240,000 miles on it, it runs strong, and I only had to replace the alternator twice and EGR once. I knew my next one would be a Saturn but I didn't like the current lineup until the SKy (wife said no) and Aura came out.

    There is a Saturn-brand website here similar to Vectra-C (really should be no surprise) and it has been full of bantering about the Astra coming over. I cannot wait, especially if they bring the GTC. We also brought over the Antara and some Theta platform SUV (I can't recall the Opel name).

    From what I have been told by contacts at Vauxhall, GTC is coming to the US, 100% We don't get the Antara until the summer. Is it called Antara in the US?

    The forum/website for Saturns is called Saturn Fans. I'm listed under a different nickname there because I joined long before I purchased the Aura.

    The Antara is sold here as the Saturn Outlook, Buick Enclave, and the GMC Arcadia.

    They look to have more of a Saab influence on the interior, especially the steering wheel.

    OK...I screwed this up royally..the Antara is the next generation Saturn Vue, not the Outlook/Enclave/Arcadia.

    Do you mean the keypad you can see on the pic?

    This keypad is only radio (tuning presets); allthough it looks like a dialpad, you cannot use it for the phone ; the phone kit works with voice commands (if its is the bluetooth version) and/or the phone-menu on the display accessible via the buttons on the steering wheel.
