Problems Galore

published

My 2008 Astra is second hand first couple years it was fine and around 2 years ago the problems started. It suddenly went dead while driving home TWICE, engine problems, warning lights coming on for no reason, and recently speaking from somewhere my son thinks it might be the suspension.
Big boot, good braking nice sized car.
Everything that isn't the inside of the car

I got this car 4 months ago off a dealership. It has done 223000 kms. Car has been kept in excellent shape. I have done about 9000 kms in these 3 months and I havent had a single glitch. Mine is the CD model. I hope I dont curse it by sharing this info. The only thing not working are the backlights of the lcd screen...so far. On a full tank i have tried going upto 550km, i think it can do a bit more.

Cheers
Reliable, fuel efficient

Hi Armaan, I am researching the Holden Astra at the moment and I'm curious if you still have yours and if it remained trouble free?

reliable car

published

I have the 2007 CD and bought it brand new. I am happy with my car nothing major is wrong with it but have had little problems.

The air con broke once and got it replaced. it has always been very noisy when exhilarating and the air con is on at the same time.

It's a very reliable car and has served me well in the 6 years i have owed it.
looks good, no major problems
air con broke and makes a funny sound

Junk !!

published

We have a 2000 city Olympic version with 134k's: what a heap of junk. Air con dead: Engin coils issues: ecu issues and the list goes on: and holden service : worst than ever

Will never buy a holden again: Toyota corolla will be the replacement to have something reliable and durable

As a non-mechanic, completely agree. I've had almost all of them

We had ours towed away to wreckers last month. Finally died, engine wouldn't crank up and everything else failed: go Holden: we just purchased a corolla hatch which I am sure will provide years of motoring unlike the astra

Holden Astra 2002 Equipe

published

Fairly good car. I bought it with 126,000 kms on the clock 2 years ago and now I have done just over 150,000 kms over this period with a glitch. I have had it checked at two different mechanics and they can't find any issues with it. Might need to change the brake pads soon though. Also I am bit worried with the ECU failing having heard few horror stories from other owner.
Efficient, reliable (so far)
No bells and whistle. Very simple car

I have a 2005 model Astra, automatic. The first 5 years were great, only problem was the back window jamming once. But this year alone I've had problems with the thermostat, indicator and an intermittent leak. But I love my Astra, I enjoy driving it. However, thinking of replacing it soon as I'm worried more things are going to go wrong with it!
Easy to drive, good looking.
Needs better cup holders!! Had problems with electronic windows jamming, left indicator goes haywire every so often.

A smooth drive with underlying issues

published

I brought an Astra as my first car, it's a 2001 model with 150000km on the clock. It drives smooth and it's powerful for its size however after two weeks of owning it, the engine has just cut out leaving me broken down in the middle of an intersection. Twice. I believe this is a common problem with Astras. The mechanic told me that it is the ECU which needs replacing by a Holden dealer. I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy one as they are unreliable. A bit disappointed because I loved it so much in the first two weeks!
It's good on fuel, very zippy and drives smooth

I'm changing the alternator in my 2001 TS Astra, but cant get the plug undone that connects to the old alternator. Any tips on how to get this undone? The cord for the plug is very short so i cant pull the alternator out to see how the plug works
