“Astra- nomical Price”

published 23/08/2006

Sexy design, sporty look, good on boot space

Cheap interior appearance, not comfortable

*~*~Introduction~*~* This review is based on my experience of using the Vauxhall Astra each week for regular motorway journeys down South every week for work. The Vauxhall Astra has been said to have been developed to offer technical sophistication and exceptional comfort, I wonder if my review...

A few weeks ago my company had to hire a car for me due to the fact that someone decided to slide into my car and put it off the road, leaving me stranded for work purposes. Anyway, thanks to the brilliant people at Enterprise car hire I ended up with a ‘59’ plate Vauxhall Astra 1.8 Sri , it was...

Lack of 'feel' - a bit wallowy

Affordable, good alrounder

Cambelt change every 40000 miles (expensive)

Revised, edition. Intro A solid, reliable, practical car all round I must say! The performance is good and the suspension serves the car well, it is light and very easy to drive, with good steering and a good ride, maybe a little firm for some. The SRI is a little more expensive than the base...

Great handling, Cruise Control, 125BHP

Wheel spin with heavy acceleration.

So firstly this is my 2nd car, moving from 1.6 litre Peugeot 306, and boy was I blown away by the vast improvement in switching cars! The handling in the Astra ( SRi 1.8) is excellent, and takes coners with a breeze. From start to 60mph in 9 seconds. And is a surprisingly nippy car, Now for the...

“Irmscher Astra looks great”

published 06/11/2003

Looks, performance, comfort

none

Purchased a '99T Astra CD 1.8 16v as my second ever car and I am very impressed. Used to have a Rover 214. Mine is in dark blue and has the Irmscher spoiler and alloy wheels. Looks are excellent espesially with the Irmscher 17" wheels, makes the car look wider and more ballanced. Dark metalic...

Excellent

responsive and quick off the mark

seats bit too firm

We have had our astra for over a year (it was 12 months old) and although we had astras in the past our last car was a honda accord. The difference between the two, in handling, was huge. The astra is just so responsive. The steering wheel, the gears and especially the brakes (which can be a...

“1.8i Astra Sxi”

Well laid out , Tourque and high acceleration

dull interior and boring fascia's

Purchased a three year old model in May of 2003 , had an immediate problem with the fuel filter causing the car to cut out when revs were idling , the car came with a network q warranty and the dealer replaced immediately (also replaced the brake pads without any prompt or info from myself). The...

Very reliable car

fuel consumption not great

Being over 6 feet tall, I found this car very comfortable, with all the gadgets in good locations and the seat being comfortable over long distances. Very comfortable to drive at any speed, and stops very safely. The performance is there when required and will cruise as required, I found the gear...

Funny Clutch Vibrations, Sometimes a bit Noisy

In General - the engine etc -------------------------------------- The 16v 1.8 Engine of the SRi Astra is fairly responsive and fast, although quite a vocal engine, pulls well below 2500 rpm and excellent above 2500 rpm, and is suited for both town and m/way driving. The car has many notes to its...

Its not the 2.0 or 2.2 SRI =O(

I bought my 5 door Vauxhall Astra SRI 1.8 just over 2 years ago as a family car. It looked stunning, shiny black and the lovely SRI alloys. The equipment levels in the car were very good, with CD player, remote controls on the steering wheel, ABS, PAS, airbags, traction control etc. I was very...

Looks great, goes well

Bragging rights are weak

I've owned a Mk4 Astra since May 2002. I got myself a lovely looking 1.6 8v Club in Star Silver. Now i can honestly say, it was not the quickest car in the world but very comfortable. And it looked clean and stylish in silver. The biggest shock however was the handling. For such a cheap car, it...
