Pros

compact

Cons

costs and availability of spare parts

45

Good Ride — good handling, great fuel consumption (7.6l/100km), torquey. Well spec. Good build quality, well equipped. Good clean lines, aggresive looking from and side profile. Apart from the high cost of replace parts and ease of procuring the spare parts, nothing much to complain about the car. It's a work horse.

A7la 3arabeya Fel Wogood!!!!! — What I liked about the Opel Astra was its performance, for this car can reach 120 kmph by the end of the second gear, it's price is easy on your pockets. It is the car when you are looking for a cruise around the neighborhood.

Good Looks Combined With Performance — Handling is spot on, the build quality is great after all it has got 127000 km on the clock and still no problems. And the best of all is in December 2009 I will pay my last installment. Thats great.

None — * Performance - not for road-racers but enough for speeding * Build Quality - very solid and confidence giving * Appearance - gorgeous appearance. best station after RS6 * Cost of Ownership - 700kms with a full fill * Fun Factor - you will get surprised at much luggage it takes

great all rounder

Cons

doesnt like abuse

Great Vehicle If Driven Properly, Fast If You Know How To Work It...:) — a great all round car, that does what needs to be done.... I've had a lot of great times with it and enjoyed every second of it... the build quality is excellent, however its not a race machine and engine components do take a lot of stress... handing is good for a front wheel drive, though understreer ruins the fun..:)... power is good for a normal aspirated 1800cc engine, it has no problem defending itself against bigger engined cars....

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Comfy drive, roomy

Cons

if you definitly need cupholders, it' not for you

I Really Recommend It! — Best car with the least cost & hustle so far! Offers comfy drive, yet sporty enough. Search for one with a 6gear box, though. And of course, search for a station wagon (caravan) - longer wheel base makes it ride like a big car.

quality, comfort, silence

Cons

motor power

Opel Astra Stw 1,6 16v — Super quality - never more than standard repairs - just like my last Astra. It's a kind of weak motor (1,6 16v) but only on acceleration. Driving on high way is just so silent and comfortable. Being a station wagon it's also very flexible and suitable for our family with 2 adults and 2 children - also when we always needed to bring our baby carriage.

Pros

Design, great sound system, comfotable, economical

Cons

Noisy for the passangers,

35

A Good Solid Modern Classic From Opel — I loved the design I missed more engine power and a more silent cabin (on the Diesel there is extra coating in the engine room making it more silent) The gearbox should have been 6 instead of 5 that I realized quiet soon after buying it. But overall a really nice cheap car with exandability. If I could've afforded it I had probably gove with the VFX version or cabriolet and EasyFlex gear shifting.
