1996 Holden AstraReview
Buy It — great quick car excellent to drive and seriously quick. the car ran great and i never had a problem with it. the only reason i got rid of it was i had to get a family car with 4 doors! buy this car if you get a chance and put a turbo motor in it and u will be instantly happy and wont want to get out of it!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: the whole package
Cons: 2 door
