Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought second hand and saved 5k from new. It only had 2.5k miles on the clock.

Costs

4 out of 5

No serious costs so far, and servicing is very reasonable.

Driving

4 out of 5

Responsive, though gearbox is notchy (particularly in 3rd).

Performance

Lively and has good handling. Quite easy to engage the traction control.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Ongoing vibration from steering at high speed (only issue).

Image

3 out of 5

Doesnt have Focus backing, but in strong colour and spoilers it looks good.

Comfort

4 out of 5

For a sporty car, the ride is not too hard and very good on motorways. 5 door has plenty of room and loads of boot space.
