Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 1.6 16V SXi 3d (2000/V) - Owner Review

The ride of the new Astras is good, but with the sports suspension it corners even better.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

I bought 3 year old for nearly half the price of a new one.

Costs

4 out of 5

Nothing spent yet, but but you do use a bit of fuel if you're just running around.

Driving

5 out of 5

The ride of the new Astras is good, but with the sports suspension it corners even better.

Performance

4 out of 5

100bhp is, ok but I think Vauxhall could have got a little more into the engine.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No problems yet. Have heard though that if the valves go, £££.

4 out of 5

I personally think it's a good looking car, but with a spoiler and the stainless steel back box, it's even nicer.

Comfort

4 out of 5

I find the car very comfortable around town and on the motorway. I like the sports seats.

Security

3 out of 5

Only had an immobiliser, so fitted a Cat 1 alarm/immobiliser to be sure.

Service

4 out of 5

They were good, but it kind of helped that I knew a salesman working there.

Problems

Bodywork
No problems, and build quality seems to be better than previous Astras.

Engine
The new Ecotec engine is good and goes well, even when pushed hard.

Gearbox
No problems, apart from being a bit hard to get into second sometimes.
