Top Car to roll tight in!

Purchased car @ Ventura Autos in Welshpool Western Australia.. James the owner is professional, accommodating and goes beyond expectation of service. Bought a CDX Astra 2006 and it's valued for the price! Show details

DON'T BUY THIS TRASH

Bought this car in 2014 for $7000 however, I had to spend another $4000 repairs

The car shakes/judders when driving at 60km or higher. The sports button makes the car undrivable. Another typical European Holden, nothing but problems.

Avoid at all costs especially L and P platers as we don't have that much money to spend.

Favourite car!

My car got written off and I bought a second hand Holden Astra and have never looked back! It feels so good to drive it’s so smooth, not too big on the outside but spacious five seater on the inside and best of all it’s very cheap on fuel! It’s honestly the best car I have ever owned!

Crap car

Worst car ive ever owned. I cant believe there are reviews stating astras are great little cars far from it. I got the wagon 2006 model for 6grand. The horn stoped working after the first week. Then only 1 year later replaced the brake pads but there aas a major problems so from a $300 job it turned into $1000. And just only after that the coil pack went and the parts for the astra wagon are so expensive seriously guys this is the worst type of car and now i have a new problem and j dont know what has happened for ages it keeps cutting out after i try to turn it on and its not the starter motor or the alternator

Great reliable car

We bought this car when it was 10 years old. It has done 160,000km and has proven to be very reliable with no major issues so far. It is quite cheap to run for city trips, however on long highway trips it could really have done with having an extra gear, at 110 it's pushing close to 3000rpm. Overall it is a good car that we plan to keep for a while, I'd highly recommend them.

Best of 10 cars I ever owned

Amazing handling like a sports car -solid build throughout- pretty reliable over 10 years - large boot space -perfect dimension vehicle and perfect size for parking - good road-holding dynamics -running costs fair- easily accessible engine- had to replace electric window control, boot lid struts and plastic coolant bottle in engine after nine years.

Great car

Car is great

Reliable...zippy...good fuel economy

After time the interior door panels came loose.

The colour and exterior has withstood the elements well.

Strangely the clutch and brake pedals feel incredibly close together and I would prefer it had some cup holders. But generally a gregreat car. Although a manual car in the city can be tough going in the traffic.

I have a Holden astra CD 2005
When I turn the car on, it’s happening more frequently now PRND123 lights all light up once I try and put the car in drive, it thuds when I try and put the car in drive, and it’s like my car is having a nervous breakdown and doesn’t know what it wants to do, but sometimes this doesn’t even happen I can turn the car on and put it in drive and it’ll play nice.
Please help.

I'm buying a 2006 Holden Astra Convertible .. just wondering if anybody knows how much a new motor costs , as the Owner showed me how to put the roof down but it needs a bit of a push to go down and recommended a new motor would fix it ??
