“This is, without a doubt, THE worst car I have ever...”

Written on: 16/08/2011 by GeordieLad99 (1 review written)

This is, without a doubt, THE worst car I have ever owned. For starters it is the most disgusting shade of green I have ever seen, somewhere between baby puke and kermit poo. What were Vauxhall thinking? The engine is lazy, to say the least and sounds more like an asthmatic puppy than a car. When you really need it, don't even bother calling as it will not be there for you. Many people try to "improve" the performance of these things with ridiculous add-on after market gimmicks like air… Read Full Review

you chose the colour I presume - or did it just change one night mid ownership? and surely you drove the car, gave the engine a blast before handing over the cash?
What a whiner!- this letter doesn't do much for your own credibility.
To sum up, no costly problems or unreliability but diddems doesn't like the colour any more and wants it to be faster

I have to agree. Why buy it if a) the colour was so bad and 2) if the engine was so poor? Did you not drive it or see it? I agree - you are the chump!

Apart from the engine and colour (again, both of which you should have realised) this is THE worst review ever...

Can i just say that the people who have reviewed here are mad.
This car has only 146 bhp, how can you overtake 220bhp vxrs, and saying it has a 0-60 time of 5.8 secs which may i ad is the same as a 300bhp focus rs is just plain silly, top speeds in excess of 160 mph i dont think so… Read Full Review

You haven't mentioned that you have one? If not makes your comments pretty meaningless.

anyone who thinks these are quick obviouly is used to driving under powered cars,they are crusers not racers,they are comfy fairly economical,and ok handlers,though obviosly as front wheeled drive they are at a disadvantage in twisty bits.build quality is as per vauxhall,i,e it squeeks and rattles,and the plastic looks cheap,the engine is quite good and fairly torquey,which makes for nice relaxed lazy driving,it is fully loaded with toys,the only one i think they missed a trick with is no… Read Full Review

The Vauxhall Astra 2.2 16 Coupe Bertone Edition is a very nice car, still a great looker... has a certain classic coupe allure which will probably never be out of style. Nice steering, very very stable with the factory sports suspension, good audio in standard, alcantara black/white interior is very nice… Read Full Review

The main thing I liked about the Vauxhall Astra 2.2 16 Coupe Bertone Edition was the power, and this car has a lot of it. I know this because I took it to a test track, put my foot down and these were the results:
TOP SPEED: 165mph
0-60: 5.8secs
Some cars I over took: Mini Cooper S, VW Golf GTi, BMW M5d, Vauxhall VXR220 TURBO and it beat an Audi TT in a drag… Read Full Review

It's only got 147PS how on earth can it do 165mph 0-60 in 5.8 secs?

I disagree with this review because...<br/><br/>An Astra 2.2 Cabrio has 147PS standard and can't do 165MPH and 0-60 in 5.8 secs.<br/>Even a supercharged 2.2 with 250PS would struggle to match those figures. I'd wager yours isn't anywhere near that

Written on: 01/04/2009

Vauxhall Astra 2.2 16 Coupe Bertone Edition is not a sports car, it is a boulevard cruiser, a [low speed] 'show-off' car, especially in the 'Centenary Blue' of the Edition 100. Don't fit a loud exhaust, it dosen't suit its' character. The 2.2 engine was designed for smoothness not speed and when driven as above can be very fuel efficient. You won't notice the noise from its' wide tyres with the roof retracted. Its' centre consul plastic looks cheap. Try to keep all the gear selector moving… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2009 by hrestrepo87 (1 review written)

i recently bought my bertone 2.2 16valve, on a 54 plate. im delighted, its much quicker and more powerful than i expected it to be. in my opinion its much cheaper to run, insure and purchase than a bmw, lacks the prestige of bmws, mercs or audis.
slightly dated interior. but certainly packs just as much punch. if thats not good enough, go for the 2 litre turbo which houses an extra 50ish bhp. its a very sporty coupe, and touch wood, has been very reliable so far. quite economic on fuel… Read Full Review

“Since I bought the car I had nothing but trouble!...”

Written on: 21/11/2008

Since I bought the car I had nothing but trouble! Started off with fuel smell then parts of the exhaust kept breaking all the way up to the manifold. Then my speedometer stopped working, my radiator then started leaking and to top it all off when I am slowing down the car just cuts out. Probably the worst car I have ever owned.
This car has put me off ever wanting to buy a Vauxhall car again!… Read Full Review

This car looks from the outside are very impressive it looks good from all angles. The roof is keeps a lot of road noise out when up and when down the car keep loking fantastic evry things is still the same as the day it come off the productions line (well built). this car make you look out of the window in the morning just to make you see if you can put the roof down. This is a really good cruising car with the top down, if you don't drive it hard I can get 40/41 mpg mixed miles. Which is not… Read Full Review
