The driving experience is smooth and fun. Hardly can hear any noise while driving. The insulation does a fantastic job. The ergonomics is perfect for a first car buyer like me. However, lots of cheap plastic in the cabin which makes the quality a bit nasty. Overall a very good first car.
Awesome car when in function...
Why does my astra 05 sedan. TS model
Thump into reverse also thump into drive selection and yet the motor runs and sounds normal.However when in drive car does not want to preform like every other day... trans oil check
Engine oil check. Battery check.. may it be a sensor fault.. car starts fine. Need advice plz
Thanks... Sonya perth...
Good reliable drive
Picked up our 05 Astra Bertone Convertible a few years ago and its been a very reliable drive. They are a good handling car with low outside noise and plenty of cabin room front and back. With the top down the radio increases and decreases volume as needed to compensate for the extra ambient noise. The only real negative is the size of the sunshield being to small to really make much of a difference.
Great car. Love it!
Nice smooth drive, really love its fuel efficiency. Yes to take it for a country trip but can’t wait to go do. Apple Car Play very handy and heaps of information comes from the onboard computer. No regrets at all about my purchase. Will buy an Astra again once my 5-year warranty runs out.
Love it! VXR is a beast!
This car is an absolute weapon. The little 2.0L turbo engine is amazing. I've owned my Astra VXR for over a year now after purchasing it new and I've not had a single complaint except maybe the fuel economy. Smiles per miles I tell myself when driving this car because you don't even think about fuel economy while driving this beast.
Good ride for the price
The astra 1.4 sports hatch is comfortable to drive with an average economy which should be better. In saying this it looks good and well featured for the cost. The integrated handsfree works well and tends to fade a bit with varying noise levels. Overall with a 7 year new car warranty I can't complain
- BK (Hatchback) RS-V
- Verified purchase
Fantastic car. I purchased the RSV with touring pack. Comes with a huge amount of features, drives like it's on rails and the 1.6 turbo is just perfect. I love the remote start and parking assist. The car needs no extras other than mats and tinting. Oh and it looks great!
Not a Bad for safety
Saved my life in a massive car accident, thank god airbags worked. It was very unfortunate incident, although I believe mechanically this car wasnt A-one but m more happy to be alive. at the time of purchase it felt like a very strong carand reliable too but later iit gave me a little issues
this is a great car need some ideas too get it fixed
I have not driven the car but would love too have my beautiful car on the road. And I need a bit of help to make this hapoen. My car has some sort of problem it won't kick over and it need a water pump replacement would this have anything too do with it.
Love my astra
I've always owned a Holden car and this won't change. I recently upgraded from my old astra and this new one certainly doesn't disappoint. The running costs are minimum as its great on petrol. I love all the new dashboard gadgets and gizmos. Its also roomier than it looks from the outside. Very happy.
Perfect little beautiful vehicle
I find my Holden Astra GTC handles well for short and long distance, fantastic on petrol for my long distance travels.
I love the little red lights and the layout of the dash, I would just like something on the dash to tell me what gear I am in.
My car is only just 2 years old and had never had a issues. The services are quite reasonable which has allowed me to pay off my loan earlier.
12 Years trouble free
Really loved my 2.2 Sri. Had a punchy engine that got upto speed quick. Gear box was smooth but clutch seemed a bit on the touchy side. In my ownership i never had problem and thought the car was well put together. The only problem i had was with the rear wing, you lost a lot of vision from behind with it.
2002 City Coupe - first car - owned for 5 years now
I first got this car when I was 16 years old when I was a learner driver. I am now 21. I have not owned or wanted to own any other car. I have driven a few different vehicles including new ones and this is by far my favourite. Sure, there are lemons out there. Yes, they can and do have issues. The main one being the timing belt/water pump and coil pack. This car came out in 1998 - that's 18 years ago, but you still see plenty of them around and some have no issues at all. So they're not that bad. However not be bias let me tell you about the pr...oblems my car has had. When I first got my astra it needed its throttle body and ECU replaced by Holden (after the previous owners changed the tachometer to an incompatible one that shorted it out) - however the throttle body I discovered I can manually clean out myself (and using 95 or 98 fuel keeps it clean). My car also had coil pack issues that caused it to misfire but since replacing it (did it myself rather than through Holden to save a few hundred dollars) it has not had a single problem in 3 years since fixing these initial problems that came from a lack of regular servicing. When regularly serviced (including good quality oil) these are solid, reliable, sporty little cars. I really enjoy driving it; I have driven from Perth to Albany in it with no issues and it has gotten me to and from uni safely. I get 30mpg on average (7.8L per 100kms) and the car starts first pop every time and doesn't blow any smoke. The boot is spacious (and in the hatch I can fold the seats down - I have helped friends move house and fit so many boxes in the back in my car), it has excellent acceleration power and the build quality is very solid - thick steel, you feel very safe driving it and feel like you're in a larger car than you are. Someone in a big van hit me in the parking lot and the dent pulled right out you can't even notice where it was. I'm pleased I've kept it all this time and hope to keep it for many more years to come.
Was bad would not reccomed don't not buy very pricey in parts and Labour over all bad experience I have a car that won't start after timing belt was replaced and now car won't start if anyone is looking can I plz have some answers if possible thanks in advance
even better than the cruze
this is probably the best car I have owned. it is so responsive through the gears that you don't want to get out of it. the electronics are amazing and overall a great car. the only fault I could put on it is that it offers so much in the way of extras it will take me a while to get used to all of them
Have had my new Astra RS-V for about eight weeks now and love it! Zippy around town and feels very capable on longer drives as well, did the drive up to Canberra last weekend and barely felt it. Great handling, very settled drive & a nice tight, sporty feel which is a step up from my old Cruze which this replaced. Also really like Carplay but I know that's not unique to the Astra.
performance is really really good handling is really perfect not too too much noise though
I really like the interior including dashboard and legroom and etc
the car is really really reliable to my point of view and the running cost for mine is 7.7 petrol per 100 kilo metres
Good If maintained
I have owned this car for a little while now. They handle and drive very well being German engineered. The maintenance on these vehicles however is a bit more than compared to Japanese car's of its class parts are very cheap because so many of them where bought and sold, so after market parts are easy to find and almost every wreckers I have been to has them in there yards. As long as they are maintained as per the service manual and proper repairs are done they make excellent car's to own and drive and are very economical to run they are per...fect for anyone who like to do a bit of diy servicing and repairs most repairs on these cars are relatively easy to do the only draw back on the model I have is that the timing belt must be done ever 60,000 km instead of every 100 000 km apart from that I like the car I have had 1 major issue with the car since I have purchased it the cars ecu had failed which costed around 550 dollars to have it repaired apart from that the car has done 178 000 km so it's expected that something will fail but then apart from coil packs, ecu 's and timing belt replacements they do make good cars to own and a pleasure to drive
Great reliable car
We bought this car when it was 10 years old. It has done 160,000km and has proven to be very reliable with no major issues so far. It is quite cheap to run for city trips, however on long highway trips it could really have done with having an extra gear, at 110 it's pushing close to 3000rpm. Overall it is a good car that we plan to keep for a while, I'd highly recommend them.
No help given
Reported that my dash panel not working eg temp fuel and speedo not working I was told to see a auto electrician I have already done that I was looking for advice of what was wrong with electric system not to contact auto electrician that was no help at all
