I have owned my 1993 (K-Reg) Vauxhall Astra 1.4 HI-TORQ since early 2004 and it has been a great car that has seen many of my other vehicles come and go. The Astra has been my primary car during my ownership covering just under 25,000 miles and has served me with reliability and practicality that...

“Sic itur ad as.tra”

Economical to run

Price drops like a stone.

When you first get in your car in the morning and start it up the last thing that you want to hear is a knocking noise. If like me you know and understand the workings of the internal or should it be infernal combustion engine then one of two things happen, you either dismiss it out of hand or...

I wold just like to write a review on the Vauxhall Astra that I have just taken possession of, OK it was my dad's old one before I had it but it is still a new car for me. I must also add that it is an extremely old car as it is a K reg (approximately 1993), but it still runs a dream as we shall...

“Nice New Car”

published 18/11/2005

Good looking stylish and easy to drive car

none yet

I've always liked Vauxhall and wanted a new shaped Astra since there launch I managed to buy one 6 months ago (1.4i club) and was instantly hooked. It has a great sporty look and is available in a wide variety of colours and drives really well, visibility is excellent all round with large windows...

Easy to drive, light steering, good looks

No electric wing mirrors, no sunroof

The vauxhall astra has always been a car I fancied driving and when the opportunity arrose to purchase one I jumped at the chance. A silver "03" plate 1.4ls 5dr was now my girlfriend and I 's prized possession. We paid £5.000 for the car at a dealership and with that price we hoped it would be...

“The Astra in a Nutshell”

published 24/04/2005

Nice looking, reliable motor.

Bodywork will rust.

For me, my Astra is a great second car. I love driving it, despite the lack of powersteering. It has a comfortable accelaration, very affective breaks and sticks to the road. It is heavy to steer and therefore difficult in maneuvers such as parallel parking and three-point turns, but for an older...

Lacks power, especially at higher speeds

I bought a fantastic vauxhall astra, M reg last year for 300 quid and so far it has been the best car ive driven! The interior is comfortable, which is great for long trips in the astra, theres plenty of rear legroom and boot space is quite good aswell. The exterior styling, albeit a bit dated...

Economical.

Electrics not very good.

I bought this car in October 2001 and am still driving it. On the mechanical side, this car is brilliant. If you keep the oil topped up, everything is fine. General wear and tear of peripheral parts, like any other car. The fuel consumption is very good. For travelling long distances, the seats...

I've had vauxhall's since I learnt to drive and think they are fantastic reliable cars. I had a 1995 1.4 Astra since it was a baby and in 2007 when I became pregnant my husband decided we needed a newer, more reliable car. So we went searching for a new Astra. After 7 months of owning a new 2007...

Not ideal for more than one buggy in car,

In my opinion the Vauxhall Astra Club, is an ideal family car, there is a spacious boot big enouggh for a buggy and shopping also. The back seat is big enough for two child seats so in my opinion would be ideal for a family of two adults and two children. I myself have a Petrol 1.4i and think...

This is actually my wife's company car but I get to drive it quite a bit. After driving a Punto a Focus diesel and a 10 year-old Megane 1.4 before this I found it felt a much more expensive and well put together car. And it's also more imaginatively styled (considering it's a facelift model); the...

Great little car for the money, well built with reassuring door close, nice looking, good spec with CD, AC, alloys, cheap to insure and tax and enough room in the back for two adults to travel comfortably. Carrying our family of four with all our luggage, on a long trip to Wales seemed not to make a huge difference to performance. However, whether you drive it hard or gentle, long journey or short, it always returns 35MPG. Strange in itself but nowhere near the quoted 48MPG combined. The support cushion on the right of the drivers side thigh seems not have enough support underneath and to have broken internally and the door arm rest broke when I lent on it. I weigh 13st.

“THE NEW ASTRA”

published 24/06/2000

LOOKS

SLUGISH AND NOT VERY SEXY

The Vauxhall Astra is without doubt the worst car I have ever driven. I currently own an S registered 1.4 LS 16v. From the outside it is a quite attractive car with smooth lines and a chunky look to it. Venture inside and you will find a well thought out, spacious interior. The build quality is...

“Its a Vauxhall.... Astra”

published 06/06/2006

safe secure and semi-stylish

small engine size

I know that the engine size isn't actually a problem as al I needed to do was get a 1.6 but to be fair the 1.4 does do the job just you have to rev it a bit sometimes on the motorways. This is a review of the 2004 Vauxhall Astra (old shape) this car was bought 2nd hand from a Vauxhall main dealer...
