Great car with plenty of space, well kitted and quick.
Everyday driver including interstate travel, serviced as manual recommends. No issues in 5 years of ownership. Would recommend to friends and family. Frugal but powerful engine, fits people 195cm tall in all seats and has a 375L boot.
Purchased in April 2016 at Holden Dealers for $14,888.00.
Excellent hatch highly recommended.
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.

Finally said goodbye to my 18 year old Astra
Bought this Astra brand new on a special deal from Holden dealership - 2 door CD Hatch Manual 2002 model
Pros - I finally scrapped it for $100 after 18 years and > 250,000 kms !!! Was so sad to say goodbye.... nothing was mechanically wrong with it except we had purchased new car, and couldn't really sell it for much anyway (due to the paint and interior foam falling apart).
- Never missed a heartbeat - used on long country drives, and also in the city. Manual transmission never caused any issues. I found it really zippy and quick off the mark ...
Purchased in January 2003 for $20,000.00.
Almost a year when I bought this car. Have to say one of my best cars I ever bought. Fits within my budget and an excellent fuel consumption. Very spacious
I bought Astra LT almost a year ago. So far i had no issues with this car. A very comfy ride and spacious. Good value for money if you are looking at a good price
First small car, fun to drive.
My Astra is a 2020 RS Black Edition.
Packed with features, this car is a delight to drive. Smooth, quiet, beautiful ride, and performance in the warm hatch category. I've driven most of the Astras competition which are very good, but this cars European roots certainly shine through. So glad to have purchased one of these cars at a fabulous end of Holden in Australia price. Having driven large cars all my life, I didn't want to downsize to a buzz box. The 1.6 litre turbo in this car is a little pocket rocket, I love it.
Purchased in March 2020.
Renewed my joy of driving
I bought The Holden RS-V pretty much on a whim from a car yard . No professional inspection or any thing sensible like that . I really rolled the dice but it was less than 40% of it's RRP when new and less than 3 years old with 19000km on it . I know Astras have a fairly bad rep and Holden have shut up shop , Corona has hit and Holden just has awful resale value . I was looking for a bargain and I reckon I found it .
I've only owned it for 2 months so it's early days but so far it is a whole lot of fun , So much fun that I fear for my licence ....
Purchased in February 2020 for $12,500.00.
Very good car ! I do 1000kms a week . Never let me down
I work with my astra 2017 sedan LS+ .
Got it second hand from the car dealer.
Never had a problem.
Plenty of power with that little turbo .
Very cheap on fuel, i think my average is 5.9 Liters for 100kms.
I put lots of kms on cars cuz I am a sale rep.
Very happy with that .
Purchased in September 2019 for $14,000.00.
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.

Astra La Vista Baby
Our 2018 Holden Astra Sportwagon is a replacement for a 13 year old V6 petrol SUV.
It comes with a turbo charged 4 cylinder 1.4 litre engine that is as economical as it is powerful. Suburban driving returns 6.8 litres per 100km with the car being used every day as a family workhorse. Clocking over 500 km per week it is easy to drive due to its low centre of gravity and six speed auto gearbox, which has a " Sport " mode.
Rear load space ( with seats down ) is over 1600 litres and by any measure this is HUGE. Four tie down hooks keep Charlie th...

Great little car...solid build
Great little car....Had our little blue Astra since 2005...The only thing that eventually played up was the steering pump as I did put bigger wheels on it.We have put down 280,000km on this car and never broke down...Keep the required water pump,belt and coil packs in check along with normal maintenance and they will go for ages...Plenty of torque in our 1.8 the Z18XE engine and does not burn any oil.
I myself rate this car a lot better and safer than the Corolla of the same year ,I have driven a 2006 corolla and do not like the jelly like fe...eling in the steering wheel not to mention the lack of power... For a P player these I’d recommend as they are a good solid build and the engine adequate for a first car. Really like any car they require maintenance.. With this engine the z18xe check that the water pump,rocker gasket,timing belt and coil pack have all been kept in check and you cannot go wrong...
Purchased in February 2005 at Barloworld.

Excellent small car
We chose the Astra RSV 1.6 turbo
Terrific car for our small family and recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable performer.
It’s fuel economy around town with Aircon on is about 7L/100km and is quite easy to drive with minimal road noise.
Holden have completed the first two services so far without anything extra needing to be fixed.
