Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)


3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I'm on a budget and I plan on getting from A to B without a glance from you.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
It's a practical car. But nothing to really compliment about it : ).

Would you buy this car again and why?
Hopefully not. Hopefully I'll have a better budget next time round and get something a bit more 'flash'. Great for the space, but an average joe in this world.

What are you likely to buy next?
Budget depending, from a Vectra to a BMW 3 Series.

November 2011

Knocked him down from £2K, got a new cam belt fitted and 12 months' MOT and tax.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Needed a practical car on a budget with a new family member on the way and a lot of tip runs to do ; ).

What was the dealer like?
Straight talking and quite honest, got what you saw.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Ok. You get what you pay for. And I certainly did with mine. Not the smoothest ride in the world, nothing that's gone in 60 seconds. But an average car for an average world.

What's it like to park?
Despite being a spacious car, it's still quite compact and fits in every parking space I find!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Recently replaced the whole exhaust before it completely fell off!

What's most practical about your car?
Space. Plenty of it, expecially for building materials when renovating the house.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The Blutacked rear view mirror.
