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.

Finally got my dream car!

published

Purchased the '09 model secondhand in 2011 & couldn't be happier, from the price to the color - just perfect. Drives beautifully & is good on fuel. I can still fit my suitcase in the boot even with the top down & when the top is up the boot is bigger than many sedans. Glad I waited for the hardtop just because I feel more secure in it.
Leather seats that hug you, heated seats, rear park assist, how quick & easy it is for the hardtop to open & close, awesome stereo.
Not enough cup holders.

trusty

published

7 years old, One lady owner since new, its been trashed and bashed and still looks like new. Rarely serviced but never missed a beat, rear ended twice, first time sitting at traffic lights, 4 wheel drive slams into the back of me, I get out and see its lost its bumper and one light,,,, my car,no damage but a crumpled number plate, its like it springs back into shape. I Will keep this car for a long time, as its pretty has held its value and a potential classic.
after seven years and 140000km nothing has broken or worn in the interior and it has never broken down.
