Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Not great value when bought from new. Residuals terrible.

Costs

4 out of 5

MPG okay, insurance amazingly cheap for a warm hatch.

Driving

4 out of 5

Great fun. Hard ride, but great around corners.

Performance

4 out of 5

Good acceleration, fun round country lanes. Not the most comfortable motorway car.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Excellent but power steering failure just out of warranty. Vauxhall paid 90% of cost.

Image

2 out of 5

Poor image, but means you can have fun without attracting attention. No points on licence yet!

Comfort

3 out of 5

Best for journeys under 2/3 hours.

Always very good. Faults fixed first time and rental car given if overnight stay needed.

Gearbox
Can stick as it gets older and feels looser than when new.
