Bottomless money pit.

published

Had this car for four years. Performed the required services but alas, the problems continued to mount. Two ecu's, two coils packs, brake rotors and pads not lasting, engine overheating and doing the head. Thousands of dollars and mechanics who haven't a clue how to diagnose a problem, I've had enough. The car has gone into limp mode again because it is misfiring. Time for another car.

Don't buy this car !!! Nothing but trouble

published

I brought a 2000 Holden Astra it did last me only 5 years but during that time every 6 months something would go it cost so much money to fix and most mechanic can never fix the problem it lacked guts very slow take off , the car shook every-time I stopped or it would turn of on hills , then got that fixed other things went wrong the radio would be so loud every time I turned the car on even tho I never turned it up , oil light would stay on even tho there was no oil leaks and always oil in it faulty dash lights!
I would never ever buy this car again nothing but trouble
The only thing I like it just got me from a to b just .

Astra 2001

published

This car is a lemon! Do not own one! Expensive to maintain it will be a constant replacement to all the Astras faults from electronically to michanically. Its not worth owning one.

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

Buy a HONDA. Seriously.
Both rear power windows failed within months. They sell taiwan aftermarket rear window regulators on eBay for $50.
(I wonder why ?)
Air con compressor failed
ignition barrel stuck - needed replacement
alternator clutch noisy - needed replacement
coolant thermostat faulty - needed replacement
If you wonder why GM has collopased with 75 billion of debt to be bailed out by us taxpayers there is a good reason.
Solid. Heaps of room. Drives Well.
Owned from new. 2002 TS CD Hatchback. Everything started breaking on if after approx. 70,000 kms.

Astra TS (1998-2005)

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
