Ok car

Bought second hand 2009 model in 2012 done 57,000K

Run like dream until 2016 at 100,000K. I am a light user

Last year, It has timing belt replace in Jun, air conditioner replace in November. I feel costly then

Other than that it is just fine , I have tyres replaced, always stick to service plan.

So far so good. hope there won't be any major job in the near future.

Just a adverage car

Good for me to zip around in however really small, and my Key is currently stuck in the ignition and i have to disconnect my battery to turn my car fully off and get my key out, if anyone has had the same problem please tell me what you did or where you went to get this fixed!
the sound system is great!
Lack of cup holders, and tends to lack power when going up hills, lots of problems with the electrics too!

Requires the ignition barrel to be replaced as far as I know. Just one of the common faults.

Alright

published

Good little car to have in the city. I have been happy with fuel consumption, handling, etc. Plus it is quite roomy inside for such a compact vehicle. Getting it serviced at the holden dealership is, of course, not the best idea. Rediculously expensive and two weeks later there were a lot of issues with the 'new' battery'. I had it looked at by a local mechanic and it seems to be fine now.
fuel effecient, compact, good handling

OK

The Holden Astra is a small sized car and only suitable for a couple of people in the front and small people in the back. There isn't all that much rear leg room nor is there all that much space in the boot. The car is quite well styled and peforms quite well. It stays on the road quite well. The seats are bucket type and can be a bit uncomfortable if you are sitting down for an extended period of time. Overall this is quite a reasonable vehicle to get around in.
Good fuel consumption and zippy car.
Uncomfortable seats.

Not a bad car

published

Its not too bad. Good for a small car as its a bit bigger and has a bit more detail. Looking forward to a new car though. Previous owner had timing replaced before i bought it, so i hope thats true. Indicators can get annoying. Head light covers have gone cloudy from sun damage i think.
Good quality for price, looks good, ok to drive, cheap insurance and rego and fuel
No cup holders, seat uncomfortable, fuel gauge out - ran out of fuel twice when it said i still had fuel left, interior light came on one day and wouldnt turn off had to take bulbs out! if i have a bag on the front seat the no seatbelt alarm will go off, theres an awfiul engine rattle im scard about, powerless, head lights are dull.
