Done a good job re-designing the Astra. Much more solid than previous models.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought the car 2 years ago and depreciation is not as bad as I thought it would be.

Costs

4 out of 5

Excellent. Sailed through 2 MOT's with very little work done to it. Although rear handbrake mechanisms have a habit of sticking. Costly on fuel for motorway driving.

Fairly standard with charcoal plastic on bumpers, sills and wing mirrors. However looks good clean and polished.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Driving position is good with height adjustable seat. Back seats are awkward to get out of though.
