Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Purchased at a good price for spec of car. However, resale value (as with most Vauxhall's) not brilliant.

Costs

4 out of 5

I've incurred no extra costs other than services. Cheap to maintain.

Driving

4 out of 5

Good drive. Can easily bring a smile to the face.

Performance

4 out of 5

A suprising car for some of the GTi's on the road. Don't expect this car to be as quick as it is. Very impressed.

Reliability

4 out of 5

I've had no problems so far. Impressive.

Image

3 out of 5

It is a Vauxhall and image isn't the best, but it will make you smile to drive.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Good driving position. Smooth ride. Good.

Security

4 out of 5

Dead lock, alarm and immobiliser as standard helps to give peace of mind.

Service

3 out of 5

Servicing was ok. I did feel that they weren't too interested in your thoughts and opinions. More interested in getting you in and out.

Problems

Bodywork
Good. Looks great after polish/ waxing.

Engine
Great performance. Although I do witness a tapping at cold start up. Manufacturer said they couldn't find root cause. No deterioration in performance though.

Gearbox
No problems.
