Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 2.0i 16V SRi 3d (AC) (1999/T)

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 2.0i 16V SRi 3d (AC) (1999/T) - Owner Review

This is a drivers car, it handles sublimely. The gear changes are smooth the steering is refined in order to allow the driver to feel the road. They say the new Astra is better, I can't see how you can improve on perfection.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

They are coming down in price now but still at the top end of the used car market, You pay for what you get and I can see why.

Costs

4 out of 5

Reasonable servicing costs if dealers avoided. Cheaper parts than most.

Driving

Performance

3 out of 5

Adequate performance but it will catch you out on an overtake if you don't keep the revs up. The fuel economy is good even on this 2 litre engine.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems as yet (touch wood!!)

The standard Astras look a bit drab, this model comes fitted with side skirts and spoiler. I love the Vauxhall Alloys.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Excellent seats fully adjustable, a Chiropractics nightmare. Driving position is good, controls are all easily reachable. Loads of room in this car compared to most in its class.
