Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Value for money. Saved £4500 on new price. 3 year manufacturers warranty and 12 year corrosion warranty.

Costs

4 out of 5

No costs as yet, but 20,000 mile or 12 month service costs £125 at the moment and service parts prices are competitive if you want to do a DIY service. Good fuel economy. Had nearly 50mpg out of it!

Driving

4 out of 5

Comfortable and quiet. You only notice tyre noise really.

Performance

16 valve engine is smooth and lively. Has that bit of extra power if you need it.

Reliability

5 out of 5

So far never let me down.

Image

3 out of 5

It's okay, but image is a bit low down on my priorities when choosing a car.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfortable firm seats, good adjustable steering, speed sensitive power steering, good Air conditioning and CD/Radio controls on steering wheel.

Security

4 out of 5

Immobiliser and deadlocks. Should be secure enough with these. No alarm, but who takes any notice when one goes off anyway?

Service

5 out of 5

We have 2 of this model in our family. This one we have had for 4 months and the other for 9 months. The first we had a couple of very minor faults, which were rectified without even booking the car in.
