Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Has dropped its value a lot in the 18mths I had the car as the new Astra is now out. Was much cheaper than a Focus or Golf

Costs

4 out of 5

Quite cheap to run. Services around £100 max. Fuel ecomony poor for a 1.6, but I suppose it has to work hard.

Driving

4 out of 5

Not a bad drive for a supposedly dull car.

Performance

4 out of 5

It's only a 8v but its a old engine that is known well and has been improved on in the years it has been used. Apparently much stronger than the other engines in the range.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Bulbs behind dash fail often. Fuel pump failed. Apart from that it's good considering it does 25000 miles a year.

Image

4 out of 5

Ok, same as focus. No family car will have a great image due to the number of this type of car on the road.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Drives like a big car. No aches and pains after a long drive which I can't say after driving a Focus.
