Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 1.6i 16V SXi 5d (2001/51) - Owner Review

Has a good feel and feedback. Corners well, with positive feel from steering wheel. With a lot of inner-city driving, I find this car is not boring or frustrating.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

I bought the car pre-registered, so got a good discount. A lot of car for the money.

Costs

5 out of 5

Only costs so far have been for fuel. I find it very economical even when I push it hard and also do a lot of inner-city driving. Compared to previous Vectra, my fuel costs have dropped.

Performance

5 out of 5

Good for nipping 'in-and-out'. Leaves many others behind. Allows me to lead the pack when it's busy, and also packs a punch, even in 4th gear.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far, after 14 months.

I like it, but it doesn't really turn heads.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Good firm seat grip, though the sports suspension can be a bit hard - but it needs that to get the best out of the sports feel.
