Excellent hatch highly recommended.

published

Bought this Astra in February 2020 after owning ST Fiesta, Honda Civic hatch x 2, Focus, Nissan Maxima, Kia Cerato, I am extremely happy with this car, very solid European feel, quiet, enough power, not one issue after 8000ks, love this car, fun to drive, comfortable, reverse camera could be better.

Purchased in February 2020 for $19,995.00.

Nice drive

published

Purchased new in April 2018 for just over 20 thou. for the R+.
Has done over 30,000 Kims now.
This car has been quite reliable and economical. Plenty of go in the 1.4 Ltd donk.
Has excellent handling and good onboard tech. Although the forward collision alert seems to come on at odd times. But very comfortable car to drive.
Well worth the purchase price.

Purchased in April 2018 at Suttons.

Good car but not without quality niggles

published

Have had a 2018 Astra R+ hatchback for under 2 years with 11k kms on the clock so far.

Pros- it’s a drives like a dream with excellent ride, handling with decent power and kit. Good value for money

Cons- very bad paint quality, chips very easily, almost as if they used crayons for paint.
Headlights are extremely inadequate out of the city or on dark unlit roads
The placement of the reverse camera and the resolution are causes for limited utility

Amber C.asked

BK (Hatchback) R+ Auto (2016-2021)

Wondering what experience others have had with turnaround under warranty. Under 2 yo Astra r+ has so far had confirmed blown piston and cracked piston head - currently investigating whether its damaged the bore - to which Ive been told thisll mean a full engine replacement (26k on the engine!!). Im pushing for a courtesy car because Im stuck 30ks from the service centre with 3 kids and no car. while Im giving the dealer the chance to get things done (they havent finished their warranty process yet - but Ive been told their warranty lady goes on leave tomorrow) Im worried if I dont start to push Ill be stuffed for at least another week. Would appreciate some guidance on a way to expedite the process - no doubt Holden hasnt even had anything through from the dealer as yet.

Hi. Could we have a chat about the problem you experienced. Iv got the same fault and want to understand more about the particulars of your situation and what happened.

Hey! All the details are pretty much in my post. I ended up with no bore damage because I noticed the issue immediately with loss of power and the turbo fan kicking in. I will say though that a few months ago I got a recall letter noting the issues I described and I had to take it in for them to replace the oil with a different one. It was listed as a known issue under the recall. If you haven’t received this I’d contact Holden direct and get them involved before going any further. I dealt with Holden direct after being stuffed around by my dealership for a hire car - Holden had it sorted in half an hour after waiting almost two weeks for my dealership to tell me they didn’t have any. Holden is also struggling to keep a good name with the announcement they are ceasing servicing in 5 years. Nows the time to make demands - not sit back and wait for them to deliver on the warranty. Good luck

Should also say mine involved replacing the piston and I got my service that was due at the same time - they did that for free. Then my next service which was done last month involved the recall and the service.
