Holden Astra Sucks

published

After 13 fixes $41,000 later the judge says no money just 1 more fix
Watever big business sux
So 6 years later I'm supposed to be patient for one more time so the judge can say you've had the cat for 7 years you've used it right?

No I've had Anxiety each time i opened the roof.

June 6th 2018 Update: Holden Astra was so bad it hit discontinued... not only that some parts you cannot get

If you want to spend 45K then sob for the following years... deal with holden! I regretted having ever dealt with them and the last straw was to find out some parts have been totally discontinued.... joke
The times I was left by the way side - rained on ... how infuriating.

I owned my ah astra cd coupe for four years.apart from servicing and replacing front brake pads nothing else needed doing.It had 110000 on the clock when I bought it and 175000 when I sold it.It was a pleasure to drive being a 5 speed manual was fun and zippy couldn't really fault this car I've owned 8 previous cars and this was by far the best!

UPDATE: I have clocked over 200,000 kilometres without any problems. The battery needed replacing as it was 5 years old. And I have decided to get ambitious and see if I could aim to clock 400,000 kilometres.

Another thing. I've managed to get 6.7L per 100 km lately with my car. Still running on the 95 PULP. Maintain them and they could still be good for many years to come.

Good for a first car

published

This is my first car and have found it very reliable. Purchased second hand at 60,000k. Easy to maintain/service, although at around 100,000km the timing belt needs replacing and this can be pricey- so be wary if purchasing one around 90,000k. Cruise control is a breeze, very good on petrol, handles well. Not sure about other models but my car has full airbags including curtain airbags.
If you are outside the car and hold the unlock button down all the windows go down/ go up when you hold down lock. Cool trick and can close the windows once you've left the car.
Only one cupholder, no console/elbow rest.

We like it ...

published

We really like our Astra Twin Top. It had a few issues when it was brand new such as having to have the fuel pump replaced 3 times. This issue ended up being an issue that they recalled all the Twin Tops to fix. But now that is all sorted its a great car. It looks great and drives really well.
Sunny days with the top down
the roof takes a fair while to go up and down.
