“My Terrible Vauxall Astra 2004”

Written on: 02/09/2013 by Vauxallowner (1 review written)

I brought my 54 Plate Vauxall Astra 1.6 Sxi Twinport (newer shape) about 2 months ago, i have now sold it i hated everything about the cae other than how it looked very smart looking car with sporty looks, every time i started the car the engine management light would come on i took to a garage about 4 times and each time they couldnt find the problem. Then a few days later they emmision light kept coming on i again took it to a garage and they still didnt know what was wrong with it (very… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2011

I have a 1.6 8V 2000 model Astra. It has run fine without issue since buying it with 48000 on the clock.However now it has 84000 and parts require replacing have included new timing belt and water pump at 64000.In the last 6 months it has had new front brakes, rear shockers and a full exhaust replacement.The only annoyance is a occasional humming from the driver rear wheels.Its either the wheel bearing or the tyres according to the forums. Overall it is an easy car to drive and providing you… Read Full Review

“Not a very comfortable ride. ”

Written on: 20/10/2010

Not a very comfortable ride.
Gear stick knob became loose while still in the 3 year warranty,vauxhall UK said it came under trim, and would`nt replace or repair it, also said we had treated it roughly.
Rear back lights steams up in damp weather.
Interior also steams up in damp weather, unless using heater fan.
I will not be buying any vauxhall ever again.
PS the warranty is not worth the paper it`s printed on… Read Full Review

“I have had this car for a while now and I have had no...”

Written on: 27/09/2010 by dbase82 (4 reviews written)

I have had this car for a while now and I have had no great problems with it. I purchased it with 80,000 miles on the clock and it seemed to be running well still.

The performance is good and the insurance is cheap.

Boot space is great, lots of room in the boot for most things. The back seat fold down for more if needed. If you want to store stuff in the back without folding the seats down, it is sometimes awkward fitting them in.

Petrol consumption is average. Much better on long distances… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2010

When I purchased this car over a year ago, I made the mistake of the minority of a potential car buyer! My Astra is a Cat C (repaired and insured). I travel 100 miles approx daily to work and this car has been solid as steel in and out!The interior has excellent build quality with great emphasis on minimal vibration both idle and motorway. Needless to say the buttons on the dash are a doodle (but slightly outdated). Performance wise, its excellent considering I hit the speedo at least 100mph on… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2010

I bought my MK4 Astra 1.6 16V SXi this year for £1500, it had a full years MOT and 5 months tax and only 90.000 on the clock which i think is good for an 8 year old car.
When i got into the car for the first time my thoughts towards the interior were still very modern for the age of the car and everything was easy to indentify. For a 2 door hatchback there is still quite a lot of room, i have a 10 month old child and have no problems getting her iun and out of her car seat in the back of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2009

I bought my Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXi from new in 2002 after driving a Corsa for 5 years and have never regretted it. I have two kids and there is plenty of room for the whole family in this car. Running costs are brilliant and I still have the same exhaust system which I think is remarkable. Tyres lasted up to 33000 miles. Insurance and servicing costs are cheap and petrol consumption is OK. The engine is smooth and road handling assured.
In short, I will regret the day I hand my Vauxhall Astra… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2009 by ManicMarius (2 reviews written)

I upgraded my Corsa to the Mark 4 Astra SXI 1.6 as my family grew. I bought the Astra new in 2002 and I have not been disappointed with it in all that time. The car is economical to run, servicing and general running costs are better than average. To note, I have the original exhaust system on the car which I think is remarkable. The engine is quiet and assured and the road handling is pretty good. Suspension and seats are comfortable and the amount of tyre wear is good. I got 33,000 miles out… Read Full Review

Had Vauxhalls for last 10 years I now have Astra SXI, bought brand new and never worked properly.

Taken it to 3 garages and they have not been able to help the car, they have replaced ECU, immobiliser, some other car… Read Full Review
